Friday's Feast #32

What is your favorite kind of pie?

BLUEBERRY. Hands down.

My Aunt Doris (who died last August/September) made the most excellent blueberry pie from berries that she picked herself. She and my Uncle Ted owned property near Astoria in a place called Clatskanie, and that area is lousy with blueberries. Juicy, slightly sweet, and unforgettable!

Name something that made you smile this week.

My students are very low-skilled ... Their malapropisms and mis-pronounced story reading can be hilarious. A child was reading today and came across the slang "c'mon" ... He pronounced it "see-moan" ... Too funny.

What do you do to cool off when the weather is hot and humid?

Cold showers are nice as a temporaray fix. I like to shut the windows, turn out the lights, and crank up the central refrigeration until it's sub-Arctic inside!

Main Course
You receive $1,000 in the mail with a letter that says you can only use the money to redecorate one room in your home. Which room do you pick, and what do you buy to spruce it up?

That's an easy one! I'd rip out the living room and dining room carpet and replace it with a Bella Wood floor. The dark green carpet is excellent quality, but it's seen better days and smells really funky along the perimeter because of certain Feline Americans' pee problems ...

Fill in the blank: My _________ says __________, but I __________.

My t-shirt says, "I'm with Stupid!", but I dumped him years ago.

Hi my sweet DaisyMae. My mom loves blueberry pie too and she bakes several of them every blueberry season. She finds them quick and easy to prepare and she even makes her own crust. Apple pies, on the other hand, are a lot of trouble with all that peeling and coring.

Gosh, I think I can read better than some of those high school students. Mom thinks that would be very funny if it weren't so sad. These kids will inherit the earth.

I'm going to be lonely next week. I hope that you can teleport over and visit me.

Hi DaisyMae! Our Lady also loves blueberry pie but she buys it because she is not very good at baking pies! I just found out from the Cat Blogosphere that my Birthday is the same day as your Gotcha day!

Purrrrs, China Cat

when mom was in 3rd grade, there was an aide working with her reading group. the aide didn't know how to pronounce "ma'am', and none of us had seen it before either. she said it was probably a typo, and should be "mama". ALL these years later, mom still laughs!
