Oooh, can I try? I like the way you explain this...easy to remember. Don't have to "think" think about it.
Exhaustion rewarded Jan’s endless workday. Twisting her feet out of too-new shoes, she curled her toes while inching toward the kitchen.
The thoughts twisted over themselves… perhaps there was cake within caverns of the shiny refrigerator.
An exclamation choked in her throat as she stumbled forward. “Ow!” Her aching neck swiveled downwards to see the offender.
Swallowing the outburst, Jan retrieved the bothersome square, a renegade remnant, evidence of nephew Teddy’s visit yesterday. Her fingers curled around it until the plastic cut into her palms. Reaching the refrigerator, Jan traded the lego for a slab of chocolate marble cake, leaving the cheery yellow cube in the plastic container, to cower in the darkness of the cool environment.
Rich brown crumbs stuck to her golden-red gingham manicure, a perfect harmony of comfort and sophistication.
A just reward.
Soft chocolate cake, the stiff icing warming in her hand, Jan savored the first forbidden bite. The pleasure complete, her steps turned to the kitchen sink, where she finished the treat in blissful silence. Licking her fingers with solemn expertise, a single sigh pushed past her lips.
Poor little lego cube.
Okay...might be a bit long and completely off tangent here, but I felt really sorry for the lego cube...
