Scared to Read

These are the awesome people I once worked with. We chose the biggest book we could find so we could crown around it for a picture to encourage children to read.
And then I made a scared face and claw hands while everyone else is smiling!
Does that make children want to read?
Does my pose put them off, make them curious, or feel like giving me slight push to see if I can easily be knocked off balance?

Happy Truck!

You have to look closely, but on the back window of this truck, right behind the driver, are three little words. They read:

Happy, Happy, Happy!
Three times is better than one!
What are you happy about today?

Going Chinese!

I got free soup at a Chinese restaurant because the waiter brought the wrong kind. He just gave it to me, "flee of chalge."
I also had bananas fried dough (what were they called?) Yummy bananas!

I also had seaweed salad, and it wasn't slimy! It was even kind of crunchy. Yes, it did taste like seaweed, but not too much. I only looked over my shoulder for the ocean once. 

Spring rolls. They tasted good, but they had chewy cabbagey chopped up inside that was kind of hard to chew. I actually dipped the spring rolls in the seaweed salad sauce as much as the yellow sauce that they came with.

The bananas were the best, IMHO. (Do you know what that means? "In My Humble Opinion." Or it could mean "I Make Hot Oatmeal."
What would you say it means?
(And which of these foods would you like the best?)

Flip Flop Blowout!

I blew out my flip flop...

...but I didn't step on a pop top!

The thing is, this happened when I was out and about town, and I didn't have another pair of flips, or sneaks, or boots, or stilts.
What I DID have was a length of tan elastic in my purse.
(Yeah, I know. I don't know why I had an unshucked ear of corn in my pocket in a long-ago picture of me kneeling beside a swimming pool, either!)

Ta da! Now I'm allowed to walk in public places.
Considering that historically we've had fashions that make people's butts look big, and shark ripped jeans, and shirts that look like the seams are being worn on the outside, do you think this style might catch on?

Farewell to Watermelon

One of my favorite foods on the planet just got cuter!
Who knew this delicious, one-of-my-favorite foods could get even better? 

Why isn't watermelon like bananas, available year 'round?
Ah, well, it just gives me something to look forward to next summer.
But isn't there spring watermelon? 
(Please tell me there's spring watermelon!)
Are you a watermelon fan or foe?
