Wordy Wednesday #98: They're MONSTERS!

Cookie monsters, that is. Yes, we're pimping our wares outside the Blockbuster, right next to the Zombieland poster.

"Mom, why would Abigail Breslin do that movie?"

"She's a whore, honey. That's what movie stars do."

Okay, I won't win on the verbal parenting skills, but at least I'm present.

I don't think I've ever used the word whore, but I am pretty blunt with my kids too. Sometimes I get this reaction: "MOM!!!!"

Although I'd LOVE to scam folks for extra money, $4 is the going rate here. Do you mean to say they sell for just $3.50 in other parts of the country?

P.S. The Blockbusters are going belly-up here.

cjm said...

Yep, $3.50 in Texas, too. But I'd pay $4. :)
