Life in the Cage

I had another dream about that boy again. Dream Boy. The one who wanted me to be the new Queen of the Tall Ones. He was still twenty feet tall and gorgeous, but his arms were crossed and he looked soooooo disappointed in me. I wanted to hide my head in shame, and I didn't even know what I'd done.

"I see the little people have made you a new cage," Dream Boy said.

"Do you mean my shed?" I asked. "What's wrong with it?"

"You should be living in a palace, eating off golden plates, wearing pearl-encrusted silks."

I laughed. "You don't know me very well."

"No, my queen, you don't know yourself."

I know he's only a dream, but really!!! What right does he have to say something like that???


  1. lol.

    Your dream made you mad. That's kind of cool! ^_^

    Maybe a part of you thinks that the shed is a cage because you had little choice about it, or that it would be nice to be spoiled and have rich things and be spoiled, but you also identify yourself as a simple girl who is grateful for the new things she's experiencing.

    It's cool that these parts of you can communicate so well! Your're right! Your Dream Boy side has no right to dissaprove of your country girl side! You know yourself fine!

    I really like the way you laugh at yourself through everything while still standing up for yourself and things that are important to you. With the blog title, with your blog name, and even in your dreams you shown your good humor! That's an awesome characteristic. =) I'm too serious about myself. I need to laugh more, not just when I make fun of myself, but when life is funny too!

  2. Everyone should laugh more at life!!!

  3. I wish everyone could be so satisfied with simple things!

Illustrator Challenge

Artists can create illustrations of me or the events in my life, as long as they are appropriate for my young readers. Any previous post on this blog can be illustrated. If I like an image that goes well with a post on the blog, I may add a small thumbnail version along with credit to the artist and a link to the full-sized image. Images of me posted elsewhere should link back to the "Giant Girl Rampages" blog.

If you want to draw a picture of me, here's what you need to know:

I'm 15 years old and almost (but not quite) 18 feet tall. Mrs. Appleton says I'm very pretty and well proportioned, which I guess is a complement. I'm not super thin or anything but I think I'm in pretty good shape.

I have dirty blonde hair that's kind of wild because I trim it with Pa's old hedge trimmers. My eyes are green as the ocean, as Ma always said, but I wouldn't know because I've never seen an ocean. My skin is tanned from being out in the sun a lot but not too dark and (usually) not burned.

I wear a blouse and skirt-shorts that my mother quilted for me three years ago. They look like a big patchwork cuz she used many squares of fabric and cowhide. I've grown since then, so the skirt-shorts no longer come down to my knees, my blouse is way tight, and there's a bit of skin showing in between. I don't have any shoes (and that makes me sad to think about so I usually don't).

If you do draw my picture, send the link in a comment so I can post it to my blog. Thanks!!!

Fan-Fiction Challenge

You can write fan-fiction about me if you want. Just let everyone know your story is made up and not real, unlike this blog which is absolutely 100% true.
