(1)Why does Blogger want me to capitalize the word "popsicle"? Is that a brand name or something? What do they want me to call it? Frozen edible sweet liquid cylinders? "Let's blow this frozen edible sweet liquid cylinder stand!"
Speaking of words being denied their wordliness by being given a red squiggly where it doesn't belong: doofuses. Yep, there it is. A red squiggly. It's a word, y'all! I looked it up and everything. If the internet, which clearly knows all there is to know in this world, says it's a word then it's a word. I'm using it, dang it.
Speaking of words again, do you know what's a shame? My kids don't know what the word 'bombastic' means. No, not the real meaning, silly. The awesome meaning. Clearly they have not been watching enough Mr. Bean and/or listening to lame 90's music. Or maybe watching enough Beavis and Butthead.
Holy cow, have you guys seen this sped up version of the Mr. Bean dance? I really do need to find a way to spend more time on YouTube. This is comedy gold!
(5)Okay, remember how this place was a jungle when we got here last summer and Tommy had to excavate a path using his favorite machete and a prayer? Well the jungle is coming back, and do you know what it's made of?
Speaking of stuff that grows, our neighbor....wait. Let me back up. We
have had a huge lilac bush growing right in front of our house, but then Tommy was worried that rodents were using it to scale our house and build forts in our attic. As it turns out, they weren't. Even if they were, the snakes would have probably eaten them. But anyway. He cut that bush down real good last fall and our neighbor ran over, wailing and gnashing his teeth and cursing the day God allowed foolish city folk to ruin his floral paradise. Because we will have to wait until next spring to have blooms again. Which resulted in the wailing and the gnashing of MY teeth. And so the other day, he brought these over to help us get through this painful time....
(7)And just look at this. We have real trees! With a tire swing! And sunshine! And a boy with shorts on!
