Maggie Sez...

... Mrs. Pruney dropped all the tea cups in the soup, Mom!

Me: Who is Mrs. Pruney?

My imaginary mom. Mrs. Pruney is a VERY good mom!

What about me?! Aren't I a good mom?!

Yes, you're my real mom, and you're also a very good mom, but Mrs. Pruney is a VERY good mom.

How is she such a good mom?

She's not like you, she let's me stick my fingers in my nose.

I don't think I can compete with that.

Ring, ring! Hi Mags, it's me Kate.

Hey. I'm eating lunch, what's up?

Hold on a sec. I've got another call.

Oh, it's just my accountant. I'll call him back later. I was calling to find out if you already ate all the cherries out of your fruit cocktail, and if not, can I have one?

Sorry dude, cherries are gone.

Oh well, it was worth a try.

No prob... Oops, the call dropped. This stupid hot dog bun gets terrible reception.

This is what we do around here on rainy days.

I haven't posted one of these in ages! It's not that we haven't bought any good new music lately, it's just that I'm a slacker. But I'm here to make it up to you...

Here are a few Justin Townes Earle videos:

I can just sense my brother-in-law Roger rolling his eyes at the hillbilly-palooza on display here. Don't worry, we'll bring him over to the dark side eventually.

She Don't Get No Respect

My cousin Amy recently sent me an email full of corny jokes which reminded me that I needed to share about Maggie's current infatuation with telling jokes. She loves them, the cornier the better! They are made hilarious to us by her uniquely four-year-old style of punchline delivery and the fact that she laughs with such delight after each one even though she's told it a hundred times already. Here are some of her favorites:

Why did the chicken cross the street (yes, she usually says street instead of road)?
To get to the other side

What do you call cheese that doesn't belong to you?
Nacho cheese

What did one snowman say to the other snowman?
*sniff sniff* Do you smell carrots?

Why was six afraid of seven?
Because seven ate (eight) nine

What did A say to B?
(This joke was originally made up by our friend Kevin's daughter, who is the same age as Maggie. Maggie thinks it's brilliant, so they are obviously on the same wavelength.)

My mom says she's going to bring Mags a bag of Laffy Taffys so she can work on some new material! I'm sure she will love that.

Maggie Sez...

... Wanna play a game called Two Kids Stuck in a Bucket with me, Dad?

Kate wasn't allowed to play because the game wasn't called Three Kids Stuck in a Bucket.
