Here is the UFO that swallowed my grandkids.
Lexi, 10, has assured Loch, 7, that he will love being slammed and flattened against the wall, defying gravity as the UFO spins rapidly in the air.
I’m not so sure that we won’t have to stop the ride and go into the UFO and save Loch from his folly.
We’re at the local Fair. What I’ve noticed about this Fair is that most people here, (the public and the carnival workers,) need to wash their hair. Also, most folks are a bit more than just fat; they’re pretty much dragging loose flesh around as they slap through the dust.
I feel my own hair and pinch the skin muffin around my own waist.
We’ve been here for several hours. I’m tired and hot and I want to go home and wash my hair and lose weight.
Here is the joke Loch tells Bill and me as we drive to the fair:
” What do you get when you cross the road with a dog and a rose?” The answer: “A cauliflower!”
We think he means, ‘What do you get when you cross a dog and a rose?’
We find his joke hysterical and he is much pleased. Then Bill tries to explain that you don’t cross a road with a dog and a rose to get a cauliflower, you cross a dog with a rose.
Loch doesn’t get it. Neither does Lexi and they are outraged when we laugh even more.
They keep shouting, ‘Why are you laughing so much! Explain it!’ We do, again and again in various ways and get no where. Maybe because there are a lot of holes in their understanding of the birds and the bees. In Loch’s case, he knows nothing, and Lexi has had only had a bit of ‘The Talk’ which sent her into outraged hysterics, at the time.
At the fair, it’s getting late. The kids want to eat dinner and then come back and do more Rides.
Lexi chooses chips with melted fake Velveeta cheese as her meal and Loch gets a hot dog. For dessert, they can’t decide. Caramel corn, waffle cake or poison dyed snow cones.
I’m glad when they choose the evil snow cones. Do you know why? Because the kids are anxious to get back to the Carnival for more Rides. It’s getting cold and dark and I want to go home.
My approval of the snow cones works perfectly. After the kids are halfway into them, because they are wearing shorts and tiny tops, they get chilled and want to leave!
And so we do.
Once on our way, the kids start badgering us about that darn dog crossing the road again, but I tell Bill, ‘Let’s leave this one to their folks!’
And so we do.
(And, now that I have finished this Blog, I am going to the kitchen and make another peach cobbler. The one I made last week with an oat topping, didn’t turn out so well. I had to eat it as a breakfast cereal!)
