Something Different

A friend of mine was asked an odd question by one of his neighbors. I could not stop laughing when I heard the actual request. So what I'm asking is that you take some time and then post your most odd/funny/humorous answers to:

My neighbor called and asked to borrow my ____________. The said they needed to _____________ under the ________________.

I'll post the actual request in the new few weeks.

Happy Birdhaday Cooper

My mom checked the spelling of "Cooper" before she left the shop. She did not think she'd need to check anything else.

My guess is the cake writer is not a native English speaker.

BTW - it's not from Porto's; it's from another Burbank bakery.

No, roaches. Bummer of a day to be closed by the health department - 106.

How bad must the infestation be to get an ice cream store closed.

People were walking up to the sign to see why the store was closed. Most said what we were thinking - it will be a long time till I get ice cream from that shop.

Free cone day is not till April. They'll surely be clean by then.

Today's lesson in Sunday school was about Peter's vision from the Lord that all things are good to eat.

In keeping with the lesson we went and had some wonderful non-kosher foods for lunch at Porto's; Cubans know how to slow roast a pig. Mmm.

Valencia's Gator

On our walk this morning to the fake lake, Cooper said, 'look a gator'. Thinking he had spied a large lizard I kept walking. Then Campbell pointed and said the same thing.

Sure enough a gator's head could be clearly near the bird sculpture. But like the lake, it's fake. We think it may have been put there to discourage the geese from eating the plants near the sculpture.

The next question is what should we name it. I like fauxlagator.

I'm open to suggestions.

No - this sign is in the parking lot of a Holiday Inn in Valencia. I think icy is not possible.

Quick, I need a bag to breathe into.
