Harere's Diary: Part 12

Payni 26
Dear Diary,
The pet show went great. We were third to last to show a pet to the judge. We were right after a gazelle who could run faster than any other I'd ever seen, and we were very nervous. Finally, we went up to the front. The owner of Nafrititi's House of Honeycakes was judging. I brought out the hoop and told Femi, ''All right, it's time." I held back the hoop and crossed my fingers. Femi took a running leap and back flipped through the hoop. We went back and watched the other acts finish, and then the score was announced, and this is how it went.
first: a funny turtle dove
second: Femi!
third: the fast gazelle
It was great!


  1. Congratulations, Femi and Harere! How exciting! And where can I find Nafrititi's House of Honeycakes? It sounds delicious!

    by Harere

    Nafrititi's House of Honeycakes
    serves oh so very yummy-cakes
    and unless I'm mistaken
    my brother's quite taken
    with their meal of the week, lotus-cakes

  3. Lotus cakes? What are they like? They sound potentially yummy.

  4. Oh, how I wish I had money
    To buy cakes of lotus and honey,
    But even with wealth
    I would ne'er find a shelf
    Full of honeycakes so very yummy.
