Lala Thought This Was Hilarious

December 20, 2018

While at Disney World, Lala and L’s Mother meet a few princesses, one of them being Ariel.  Ariel took one look at Lala and said, “I thought *I* had long hair; you couldn’t get a dinglehopper through that . . . you’d have to use my father’s trident!”


I Knew As Soon As She Grinned And Launched Into A Silly Dance

“Do you want to watch something funny and short before bed?” L’s Mother asked me last night, so I took a step back and looked at her expectantly.

She got it.

After Two Cups Full, I Was Ready To Go!

(No, the news isn’t cheery of late.  I’m not in denial . . . I’m being obstinate!)

Today I discovered that doing without morning coffee isn’t so bad when you substitute it with morning cookies provided you keep the doses the same.

I was looking for directions on the box on how to prepare this, and the first thing I saw was “keep frozen” and I thought to myself, “That doesn’t sound tasty at all!”

– L’s Mother’s latest attempt to see if I was really listening to her

Life around here is running on more or less an even keel again at the moment, and that’s nice, but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember the not-so-long-ago time when I was making up new words to best convey my precise level of disinclination to deal with the latest dilemma clamoring for my attention.

This morning my son asked me if I knew what a “hot Jupiter” was.  “Sounds like a drink to me,” I told him, prompting him to giggle and tell me that was silly.

The other day I noticed that L’s Mother was listening to “The Best of Badfinger.”  As I walked away I found myself thinking, “Doesn’t that make this compilation the good Badfinger?  And by that logic, is there a bad Badfinger compilation out there?”

It’s True

They say you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but a spray bottle full of vinegar can knock fruit flies out of the air with a single spray.

You can’t do the same trick with honey.

Last Friday I mentioned Lala’s (questionable) assertion that I’m Batman.

Naturally, not long after that a friend of mine named “Robbin” asked me if that made her my sidekick.

“Only if you wear the costume,” I replied with a wink, thinking (incorrectly) that would be the last word on the subject.

I was then informed that, “If you are Bruce Wayne rich and will cover my living expenses, THAT CAN BE ARRANGED!”
