If You Give A Mom A Cold Afternoon

If you give a mom a cold afternoon, she's gonna want a cup of decaf to get through it.
If you give her a cup of decaf, she's gonna need some cookies to go with it.
If you give her some cookies to go with it, she's gonna need to work it off at the Y.
If she works it off at the Y, she's gonna notice how cold it is outside.
If she notices how cold it is outside, she's gonna need some decaf to warm up.
And so the cycle begins.

Do you know the process that coffee goes through to take the caffeine out? It involves large quantities of formaldehyde - I think I'd rather have the caffeine

It also solidifies in your bloodstream.

stick a "need" between the 'just' and 'to'.

Great post, except for the "decaf" bit. That's just wrong. In other words, what Seth said. How 'bout some tea? Or hot apple cider? Otherwise, you might as well just add Nutrasweet to that decaf and expedite your brain tumor. ;)

Decaf? DECAF? MINDY! Tsk, tsk.

Mindy said...

Good gracious folks. Do you not realize my little "story" (inspired by Laura Numeroff) is exagerrated for comic relief?! I have a cup of decaf maybe once a month!!!

Seth said...

Apparently not

Ina said...

We're plain folk here, so you should just start by explaining what your little story is inspired by. Otherwise, we just take everything literally, you know.

Next time you're at a bookstore just look in the children's section for books by Laura Numeroff & you'll understand this post a bit more. I kinda wrote it with other parents in mind.

Ah, I see. We're a bit behind in that area, I guess.
