And The Winner Is…

I'll call it a semi-tie.  While no one got it exactly right, Sierra put so much into her answer, I have to give her the win.  And she's not that far off.  And melane got the shovel part right, even if she didn't give the whole answer.  So yay for the new girls!  And welcome ladies.  It's nice to have you here.

It seems this picture caused quite a commotion at school.  So much that Mommy had to send a note explaining it to the teacher.

Dear Mrs. Jones,
I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer.
I work at Home Depot and I told my daughter how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit.  I told her we sold out every single shovel we had, and then I found one more in the back room, and that several people were fighting over who would get it.  Her picture doesn’t show me dancing around a pole.  It’s supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot.
From now on I will remember to check her homework more.

I might buy the shovel.  Not so sure about the story.

That was one of my all-time favorite e-mails! I felt like I was cheating when I posted last night, since I already knew the answer:)

That's okay melane. To know is to answer.

I've seen this one before--always a fun reminder to watch what we say and do in front of those little eyes and ears...

Whoo hoooo! Thanks for the win! I must say I enjoyed writing that unionizing story. I was totally into it. I had to edit it down and cut the parts about workers sobbing in their cars in the parking lot during breaks, and furtive passing of notes in the hallway before the factory whistle blew and they all scurried back to their posts.

And the end of the story, is, of course, that while the mommy successfully unionized, her actions also sparked a deep-rooted bloodlust, and all of the workers turned on the cigar-chewing foreman and RIPPED HIM TO SHREDS and then ATE HIM.

Horrors. Awful story. The mommy didn't tell her kid that part.

Goodness me. Are you in therapy, Sierra?

Sierra just needs another trip to Santorini. She'll be fine:)
