A friend, whose love of Halloween and all things spooky know no bounds, once had a model hand that scuttled across a hard surface when someone was nearby. Recently I was reminded again of that spooky novelty hand and decided that I really needed one. I would call it Spare and it would be my constant companion in life. Here are some of the uses I’d put Spare to:
If friends needed help I could give it to them as my helping hand.
I’d keep it on my right shoulder and it could be my right-hand man.
If it happened to be a right hand I’d put a plastic knife in its hand and call it Dexter.
Or If a left hand I’d find it a funny hat and call it goofy.
I could start a serious study into the sound of one hand clapping.
Need to start a new project, I’ll just turn my hand to it.
With a bird in the hand I could go after the two in the bush.
I know it would always be at hand.
I could always leave a task in safe hands.
Need to vote on something, well lets see a show of hands.
Feel I can’t deal with a situation, I can just wash my hand of it.
Difficult person, nah I have them feeding out of the palm of my hand.
I’d never lose anything, it would always be at my fingertips.
See how useful a Spare hand can be.
