This has always been one of my favorite days. The past couple of years, I have laid low. Let me share what happened this year that made me laugh as I lay in bed at midnight.
Matt told what he did and it still make me laugh. You know what Oreo cookies are, right? Well, so does Matt. He took apart an oreo cookie and carefully put some toothpaste int he cookie. He then put it back together again and put it back in the package.
At some point Mippy took the cookie, dunked it in her milk and took a bite. Matt (and Katie) looking on. Mippy hesitated, looked at the cookie, then dunked it again and took another bit. SHE ATE THE WHOLE THING.
When questioned about this...her response? "I thought I bought the mint oreo's". When questioned about the consistency she replied "I dunked it".
WAY TO GO MATT! You are my hero, following in my footsteps.
I don't know which was my finest hour. Was it the police knocking on Scott's door telling him his dog barked too loudly? (Oscar doesn't really bark).
Was it having Bruce call Scott at work pretending to be the doctor telling Scott that Mippy was having twins when she was pregnant with Matt?
For Scott, was it putting the "For Sale" sign in my front yard?
I think that was his ONLY good one. There were some other feeble attempts, but not as successful as mine.
On a sad note...Pens have lost two in a row. Badly. I know, Steve tells me they will succeed and I hope he is correct. Matt and Scott went to game on Saturday, thanks to Carolyn, and saw them win 15 in a row. They were bound to lose, and it's okay. It was a good game that they saw, though Sydney lost some teeth and got a fractured jaw. Get well, Syd, feel beter.
On a happy note...Pirates won. Nice steal of second, Cutch. Matt and Scott went to opening day...I hear all they did was eat, cheer, eat and freeze.
Spring is coming, I know it is. Please come. Snow squalls again today. Darn.
