My sister and I slipped away from my mother’s watchful eyes one day,
Or maybe Mom didn’t realize I was in town for the weekend.
We slipped away from caregiving on a secret adventure
To DinosaurLand! With its giant fiberglass dinosaurs and an octopus and a bright green praying mantis too. All somewhat worn and torn but we giggled and posed amid the fiberglass gore and on King Kong’s palm too.
Two sisters having fun yet feeling bittersweet sadness with a taste of guilt.
