You know when you are walking out the door in the morning and you have a million things in your hands because you have a billion errands to run?
Well, that was me yesterday morning.
As I was walking out I realized I hadn't eaten anything yet so, I decided to grab an orange from the fridge and just put it on top of my daily handful o' stuff.
Unfortunately I grabbed the wrong Blasted Orange!
I swear he had it out for me.
He jumped right off the top of the pile and started running around my house.
I thought I had him cornered by the dinning table, but no, he kept on getting away.
Of course, I started clumsily dropping all my million other things.
I even caught myself talking to the blasted orange "Oh, you think your tricky do you? Fine I give up."
By the time I arrived home he had disappeared.
but I have a message for all his little sphere friends!

Did you put the knife in the orange? If so did your kids freak?!

Janalee said...

that reminds me of a jack handey deep thought from SNL that said something to the effect of, '...one way to scare somebody is to set out a pumpkin with a knife in his head that says 'you'.." So once in college me and my friend did that to someone and left it on there car and it was funny.

Yes, I put the knife in the orange, and have you met my kids? No, they did not freak out. They live with me and actually are quite used to my deranged ways.

way to show that orange Mer. Send out a message to all the rogue fruit out there. Face your fate. You are food and will be eaten.

I loved your table. What a cute idea to have someone else decorate each table. I love hearing other peoples idea. If I were in charge it would have been dixie plates so you win for the best creativity!!

Sheri said...

You showed it! And, I was totally cracking up about the deep thoughts comment. Oh, how I miss the "Deep Thoughts" on SNL! I have an old calandar around here somewhere that had a "Deep Thought" for every day of the year. I need to find that thing:)

Bridget said...

You are so funny. Glad I didnt' have a "run in" with you that day...

Merilee said...

Just a note to you all. You have no need to worry about running into me on a bad day. I am not in the habit of stabbing things, especially people!

megan said...

I just have to let you know that both reuben and i were cracking up at your revenge

Jodi said...

You are so awesome! I bet any orange within your general vicinity is squirming in their peels tonight :)

Cheddy said...
