The Weekly Wonderings #116

1. Why Labradoodles? Did we really need to supersize poodles?

2. All rat dog lovers, please send hate mail to wheeallthewayhome AT gmail DOT com.

3. "Daughter sucks eggs," Youngest shouts at his sister in the pool.

4. Released from his time-out to go back in the pool, he is admonished to not say those words to her again. "Okay. I'll sing them."

5. Damn. Damn. Damn. I need this snarky smart-ass like I need a butt-scratching monkey in the kitchen.

6. The exchange related above occurred all of three hours after Daughter returned from her week's stay at sleepaway camp. For a boy who purportedly missed his sister dreadfully, that's a hell of a welcome home.

7. Daughter had a fab time, of course, and she cried when she had to leave her counselors, Kate and Bean, and, oh, Mike, too. And look, wah-wah-wah over her new friends Hannah and Jaycie. Oh, Lindsie, too.

8. You can call it the Great Flood of '09.

9. Unless that title has already been used for some calamity or other.

10. And if you were a part of said calamity, um, sorry for the attempted takeover of the name. And for any damage you and yours may have suffered. Of course.

Ah, your daughter's flood is SOOOOO girl drama; my husband is completely ill-equipped for what's coming down the pike with our 9 year old. He keeps looking puzzled, when she does thing like acting idiotic before one of her friends comes over, and saying things like, "But there's no reason for it. It doesn't make sense."

I assure him that most of her behavior in the next 9 years will be goverened by those statements.

'Supersized poodles?" Bwaahaha! Never thought of it that way, that's hilarious!

I'm waiting for the really f**d up crosses to happen with dogs: Bull Mastiff and Chihuahua. Dachshund and St. Bernard.

Oh wait, maybe those are just mutts.

Janet said...

I played a Labradoodle in a play once, but I wouldn't want to own one.

There can be any number of Great Floods, depending on geographic location.

"a butt scratching monkey in the kitchen" OMG, you crack my stuff up!!! I can't stop laughing! I just love your humor.


I mentioned to Eldest the other night that I had a fairly wide open day Friday. Writer that he is, he wondered if I would perhaps like a wri...
