A Riddle

February 4, 2011

My blogging has come to a screeching halt.  My new laptop met with a foot in the middle of the night resulting in the presence of several large black feather-things on the screen.  The events of last evening unfolded as follows:

6:30 p.m.  Dan: Maybe Costco would take it back.  Do you have the box? (Dan to his desk to rummage around for the receipt.  I to the attic to dig around for said box). Let’s see, 90 days.  You bought this on Nov. 5. Dan and Carl put their heads together for this complicated math situation….a calculation which involved reciting 30 days has September…

7:00 p.m.  TODAY IS DAY 90! What time do they close? 8:30!

For Dan: realization sinking in that our receipt expires in one hour.

Lucy: realization sinking in that I’m about to be left with three children who are NOT IN BED.

Dan: “Quick! Where’s the box?”

Lucy: “Quick! Everybody into bed. Everybody into bed.

Dan: Wrestling the computer into its box.

Lucy: Wrestling everybody into bed.

The race to Costco is on.

8:30 The phone rings: Me: “Hello?”  The other end: “Maniacal Cackling (this means they took it back)”.

I will be replacing my laptop this weekend and will resume blogging on Monday.  Look for upcoming posts including: “Facing the Giant” and “Don’t try this at Home.”  In the meantime, let us set our minds on warmer days ahead and look at some pictures from last summer.

I would like to leave you with a riddle: Which of the three little peppers loves all things chocolate?
