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!
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.
