I come clean

It was a great weekend! Hope yours was too. One of the highlights was….

Dum dum dum, da da dum….

A “new” apartment sized washer and dryer! Courtesy of Vegetable Man’s ex-girlfriend. Is she trying to make me feel guilty, or what? I don’t care, it was a very nice thing to do! She did the plumbing for the washer, too. My Mom and I had gone to the laundromat in the morning after she came home from church. I lugged down two heavy laundry baskets, and lugged them back upstairs when done, too. Having an in-house washer and dryer will be totally wonderful!

From my E-Mail
All About The Sea
A number of primary schools were doing a project on "The Sea." Kids were asked to draw pictures or write about their experiences. Teachers got together to compare the results and put together some of the 'better' ones.

1. This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly age 6)

2. Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves to chargers. (Christopher age 7)

3. Oysters' balls are called pearls. (James age 6)

4. If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island. If you don't have sea all around you, you are in continent. (Wayne age 7)

5. I think sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She's not my friend no more. (Kylie age 6)

6. A dolphin breathes through an asshole on the top of it's head. (Billy age 8)

7. My uncle goes out in his boat with pots, and comes back with crabs. (Millie age 6)

8. When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn't blow, the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off eating beans. (William age 7)

9. I like mermaids. They are beautiful, and I like their shiny tails. How do mermaids get pregnant? (Helen age 6)

10. When you go swimming in the sea, it is very cold, and it makes my willy shrink. (Kevin age 6)

A Happy Monday to ya, the start of the week and all that.

Too funny about the kids!

Congrats on the washer/dryer. My washer was broken several weeks ago and I went to the laundromat. It was nice getting it all done so fast...10 loads, washed and dried, 1 1/2 hours, $20...but I'm thankful I don't have to do it all the time! :)

Oh these little 'sea' factoids were MARVELOUS! I especially loved the one about the dolphins. haha ... now had I only known this information while I was still working at the aquarium. I could have announced it to everyone around me!

Hey, GOOD DEAL on getting the washer and dryer. I swear, next to having my daughter, that was the single most important delivery in my life! :) I'm really happy for you.
