Daily Story 206 - The Yarn Family

There was once a ball of yarn that was made up of a family. There was Mommy Yarn, Daddy Yarn, Daughter Yarn, Son Yarn, Doggy Yarn, and Crazy Hobo Yarn, and they all lived in a pretty little house made up of baby blankets and doilies and hand-crocheted coasters. One day, though, Daughter Yarn decided that she wanted to move out.

"But why would you want to leave us, sis?" asked Son Yarn in his saddest sad voice. He did not want Daughter Yarn to leave.

"Because I'm tired of being stuck in this ball all the time. I want to go out and live, to make new things, to... to be free!" Daughter Yarn replied dramatically. She was a very dramatic theater major.

"Fine, then we'll have to get the scissors," Mommy Yarn said. "Daddy Yarn, would you do the honors?"

"Certainly, my dear," said Daddy Yarn, and he went off to fetch the scissors, leaving Son Yarn to say his tearful farewells.

"I'll miss you, sis!" he sobbed as he gave Daughter Yarn a yarn-hug.

"I'll come and visit," Daughter Yarn reminded him. "It's not like you'll never see me again."

"You promise?" Son Yarn sniffled.

"Yes, I promise," said Daughter Yarn, just as Daddy Yarn returned with the scissors.

"All right, here we go," said Daddy Yarn, and with Mommy Yarn's help, he cut Daughter Yarn away from the rest of them, and she said one final farewell to Mommy Yarn, Daddy Yarn, Son Yarn, Doggy Yarn, and even Crazy Hobo Yarn, and they all yarn-hugged her in return, except for Crazy Hobo Yarn, who was a little preoccupied with some fishes, before she set out on her way to a new life and new adventures.
