It's a silly place.Hub left a few minutes ago to drive up and fetch Belle and Zappa, and bring them back home to Mommy where they belong, and should never have LEFT. . . . wait a minute.
No, they don't belong here, and it was time for them to leave.
It was a tough time for Momy, you can betcher arsifal areas on that one.
But it was time. They were grown up. They had jobs. Etc.
Too many adults in the same house? Trouble. Especially when two of the adults are really just very tall babies who have finally been potty-trained. Well, to me they were.
They were glad to move out, but they miss me. They especially miss my refrigerator, but I know they miss Momy.
It's all worked out beautifully. They were mine for nineteen or twenty years and somehow then they were ready to go out on their own and give it a try, just like we all did.
So far, so good.
I know they eat right, stay away from naughty people, abstain from alcohol, have no druggie friends, pay their bills on time, and only watch G-rated movies.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahaha. . . .
But that's how they were brought up, you see. I always wore a dress and pearls, and Hub wore a suit and tie and spent most of his time in his den.
Oh wait, that was Leave it to Beaver. That wasn't us. Turn the channel. What's that show there? Simpsons? Say what you will, it's maybe a bit more realistic. Fortunately, AND unfortunately. We weren't really like the Simpsons. But we were funky enough to appreciate them for what they were.
What kind of family were we? I like to think we were a meld of all the greatest snarkiest silliest goofiest warmest loving-est shows ever on TV.
But Belle probably summed it up best when she posted that growing up with Hub and me was like living with Monty Python, and Pinky and the Brain.
Throw a little unconditional love in there, and you've pretty much got the picture.
Did I say a LITTLE unconditional love? Try a LOT. That's better.
Now sit down here where it's cozy and warm, and Momy will fix you a grilled cheese sandwich and some eggs.
But first, WHAT'S YOUR NAME?!!! WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?!!!!
Okay. Now put the coconuts down and eat. We'll conquer the world after you've rested.
