SATURDAY SCAVENGER HUNT / WEENIES

I got yer weenies right here....





hee hee






There are a whole series of weenie books out there for kids. They're really cute too.







Okay... this one reminds me of a time... yes, a story... but a short one... about a time when Squeaky was a real weenie.


We were driving in to the town to the left and a guy in an ice cream costume was waving at cars outside of a Dairy Queen. As you know... we at my world do not hold our tongues well and we swear like the dickens. It was not terribly surprising when Squeaky stuck his hand out the window and flipped the ice cream cone the bird. The Bear and I had a secret giggle, then I stopped the car and backed up... pulled into the Dairy Queen and gave Squeaky a lecture about how humiliating it must be to earn your living as an ice cream cone... poor guy just trying to keep his family fed. Then I told Squeaky that he had to go and apologize to the ice cream cone. The Bear was hiding her smile the whole time... bearly. hahaha


Squeaky is a stubborn child and frankly I was certain that he would refuse. Instead, he looked totally abashed and slunk from the car to the ice cream cone, where he ernestly apologized for his behavior. The Bear and I were splitting a gut laughing. Yes... we can on occasion be mean. But we got it under control by the time he got back to the car.


Squeaky said "He told me that it was okay... I was only about the 30th one to flip him off today, but thanked me for apologizing." Then we all had a good laugh over that and I rewarded him with some sort of goodie.


Hey... maybe I was the weenie in that story!


Happy Saturday... this was a fun hunt Pamela! Thanks for the word "weenie".

  1. Awesome post, Ananda! I forgot about those Weenie books! Bad librarian.
    Loved the story too. The fact that Squeaky gave in to apologizing so easily must have meant he felt a little bad about it...so you probably did him a big favor giving him a chance to apologize.

    Happy Halloween, AG!!!
