Object Writing - "Wand" + an Excerpt Extra

The word, "Wand", unedited writing practice (taste, touch, sight, sound, smell, movement, body sensations), 10 minutes, go!...

Little Johnny waves his tiny spoon like a magician's wand as though he could conjure up an instant meal from his adult assistant who was scurrying from sink to microwave. This cutely pudgy little trickster with the unavoidable smile planned his next move as soon as he had his fill of the magical mixture of spinach and beets. Oh, mom was prepared to see his so-called wand become a flying instrument of mirth and amused laughter. The rubber covered spoon thuds onto the dark wood floor and releases the strategically planned uneaten contents of its infant portioned concave and splotches of green between the cracks become the next objects of discussion between mother and son. Pressure builds behind her desire to teach her boy right from wrong, but then she...

Ed. Note: I was going to go into something about exploding in laughter.

And excerpt from a previous 10 minutes with the word "Loom":
