Ah F-F-F-Foolin'

While I was on the phone with a friend...

"Hey Mommy, who are you talkin' too?"

"I'm talkin' to the gypsies, Griffin. We're trying to agree on a price for you."

"Oh.... I DON'T WANT TO BE SOLD TO THE GYPSIES! Wwwwaaaaaaahhhhhh! DON'T SELL ME TO THE GYPSIES! I'D MISS DADDY TOO MUCH!"

"Daddy?"

"Yeah, Daddy! BECAUSE HE'S NOT THE ONE SELLING ME TO THE GYPSIES!"

"But it's because of HIS five-week business trip that I need to sell you to the gypsies!"

(One more day, oh my heavenly fuck, one more day.)

Hang in there! Then you can sell yourself to the gypsies and take a break...I saw some gypsies in Venice when I was there...Venice would be good, no?

Love the new banner! And I'm cracking up about the gypsys. My mother used to say that as well.

When our oldest was approaching his tenth birthday, I had him convinced that at age 10, parents had the option of trading their kids in for another kid -- or a puppy.

I've never thought of that one......but then it would just start the "what's a gypsy? What do they look like? Where do they live? ........on and on and on
