Joke of the Day

Aunt Rosmarie, my sister-in-law, made an outrageous chocolate mousse today for when the boys came home from school. She made it with Toblerone, the dark kind, and heavy cream. Oliver, who went back to school yesterday, is spotty -- covered, really, in those scabs that remain itchy and keep him fairly irritable. It's also about ninety degrees today, unseasonably hot, making itchy arms and legs and head even more awful.

He ate the mousse with great enthusiasm, though, and after licking the bowl clean, I asked him whether the mousse had hit the spot for him.

Yeah, Mom, he said, and lifted up his shirt, it hit all my spots and I had a lot today to hit.

Remind me of his sense of humor next time I threaten to kill him.


  1. Appropriate joke indeed!
    Tomorrow- recipe?

  2. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, as they say. He's adorable.

  3. cute and funny should keep him alive for a while. brilliant!

  4. Here's hoping his spots disappear quickly - almost as quickly as the mousse. (But I hope the sense of humor stays).

  5. you know, as soon as Oliver discovers quality duct tape, as sees his error in using scotch tape, I am inclined to think threatening him will only encourage and sharpen his skills.

    It looked like the wascally wabbit was on roll of duct away from d turning to an f, on the tape which bares that name.

  6. Thanks for the smiles. Love the Teletubby costume, too!
