Up the stairs-
feeling the platform rock.
Ropes quivering,
clips clinking.
One foot gently in front of
the other.
Swaying in the breeze,
I walk across the rope.
Feel the ropes sway.
Stop.
One foot
gently
in front of the other
again.
Feeling wind-
urging myself forward.
Feel a sway as
someone walks
behind me.
A rush of excitement.
My feet on the platform
reaching carefully-
stepping over.
Clink, clink.
I can move on.
I step on a rope-
swaying.
Now for the next.
Stepping-
Swaying-
Wobbling-
Continuing.
Back and forth.
Stepping up.
The platform,
firm and solid
beneath my feet.
One solid beam.
Going forward.
Wobbling-
Bouncing.
Reaching up.
Stepping forward.
Click, click.
Clack, clack.
Forward.
Continue.
Bounce.
Rock.
Sway.
I feel it all
as I walk
across the beam.
Platform again.
Clink, clank.
Grabbing on.
Going down.
Wind rushing around me
swinging and swaying
down the zipline.
Hanging,
dangling,
going down-
Standing up.
Confidence surrounding me.
I did it.

Shark Dress Mystery

by Rebecca Melsky December 18, 2020 3 min read

About a week ago, a very kind customer wrote in to say that two of the "Hello Chum" sharks dresses she received in the mail had two strange discolorations on the skirt. They seemed to line up perfectly with the tape that was on the clear plastic bag holding each dress.

"That's so strange!" we wrote back, and immediately sent her two new dresses assuming it was some one-off problem with the dresses she had received. But after we heard from another customer with the same problem, and the first woman's replacement dresses ALSO had these strange discolorations, we knew something was up.
