That Mama




I found this the other day when I was sorting random papers, an odd relic from last summer. Well, all I can say is that my family is nothing if not eccentric. I'm not sure which is funnier--Hedgie's use of the antique term "courting," the seeming acceptance of the tedious fact that mama has a crush on a fictional character, or that she wrote it down on paper. To whom is it addressed? Is she trying to warn Sarge of the competition?

We're an odd bunch over here.

Is it meant as a ransom note?

I'm adopting Hedgie. She's my perfect child!!! Too funny. And no, you aren't an unusual bunch, you're just right and I adore and love you.

Thank you for this. Leah, really, it's just too funny. You're a very lucky woman. I know it's hard being a mom, but you've done a brilliant job. Hedgie is proof.

so hows the snape courting working out... getting any action on the side?

Leah said...

working backwards--

IV--courting a fictional character is the ONLY way to get action on the side...

Karrie, hey you! It's great to "see" you--happy back-to-school to you and your gang as well--

Hi Rima, hope your research/writing's going well...

Suzanne, we're not unusual but only speaking relatively!!!

MJ--I think you're right. But who's the hostage?

Kylie, mama courting Snape is the absolute status quo ante.

Hi Skeeter!

Hi Murali!

Faycat--isn't she eccentric? But then, aren't we all a little?

love--
