Is a what now?

twimii is walking out of her apartment. There is a garda (police officer) outside her gate taking to three boys. One of the boys is saying angrily 'It wasnt us!!!'. twimii is closing the gate behind her, she looks at the wall and gasps 'OH!'. The L has been changed to an N. twimii happily says to herself 'well, that sorts it'. The garda turns around and looks at her puzzled. She looks up at him and says delightedly 'I am in no way responsible for that!'. She then walks off on her way. The garda and the three boys stare after her in amazement. One of the boys then says to the garda 'You'd want to keep an eye on that one' The garda's eyes narrow as he watches twimii and he says 'Yeah'.

Maria:In ten words or less - we've all got work to do. Twimii: Alright - well - zen - meditation - or - as - I - like - to - call - it[] Oh no! I ran out of words. Maria looks at Twimii unimpressed. Twimii smile half guiltily. Maria: If I catch you one more time you're getting a warning. Twimii: That's totally fair enough. Maria: OK keep up the good work team.
Looked it up – zen-buddhism.net says “Trying to explain or define Zen Buddhism, by reducing it to a book, to a few definitions, or to a website is illusion. Instead, it freezes Zen in time and space, thereby weakening its meaning.” … If only twimii had known…
