Once upon a time there was a witch called Witty,
because she was witty,
at least that’s what they said at the time,
and at that time no one had the
wits to disagree, since Witty was a witch.
She knew which way was which and
she was amusingly droll and even jocular.
At any rate she lived in a very stylish apartment,
which was, as witty as Witty was, or so they said.
I never met her.
Although I might have, if I’d had my wits about me.
Somehow, I think I did. Meet her I mean.
Um the apartment, they say, was pretty weird,
But anyways she liked it. I heard she thought it amused
her, although no one was really sure.
I know I wasn’t… sure, I mean.
One day, they say, someone witnessed just how
witty it was, although they didn’t really have their
wits about them. You know how rumors are.
The Witty building, I mean apartment, was getting
a little weirder everyday, since Witty’s spells were
becoming a little witless.
“That’s a word right?”
I mean, her spells as witches go were a little strange.
The building, or apartment was becoming, I mean
starting, to look like her. At least the green part did.
That’s what they say anyway.
Witty had a greenish kinda glow.
You know how witches are, I hope, because
I don’t. I’ve never met one. I don’t think.
Here’s a picture of the Witty building aka
Witty’s place, or apartment.
As you can see it’s pretty odd. Not making
any judgmental remarks! I wouldn’t do
that! I’m a good guy, even amusing at times!
But it is a little strange. Just a tad mind you!
BUT! One day, they say, Witty and the whole
kitten kaboodle just up and disappeared and
they Lived Happily Ever After. Pretty good eh?
DAD! Next time I’m telling a story!
