What a day it’s been Chez Soup! First, I had the shocking discovery of a guest reptile lounging about my bedroom. After helping it find the woods, I packed up my laptop and hightailed it to the public library, thinking I could push the critter from my mind while using their Wifi. That worked GREAT until… the Wifi crapped out. Fortunately, this turn of events coincided with lunchtime. I packed up again and headed over to Five Guys (Damn them!), thinking that a juicy burger and some fresh-cut fries might help mitigate my mental anguish over the aforementioned serpent. Then, I headed to the nearby hundred-dollar store Target to pick up some stuff I didn’t know I needed hair color. Because? You know – Retail Therapy.
I was feeling better as I loaded my ten bags purchases into the car and drove away, but then I noticed that the World Market had closed! Sign off the front, store completely empty. WTF? I didn’t even know this was happening! Why didn’t anyone tell me?? I’m in mourning!
Meanwhile, Chrysler’s gone into Chapter 11 and Swine Flu is spreading and Senators are switching teams. Is there nothing we can count on any longer?
Fortunately, there is one thing: If it’s Thursday, I’m gonna be here begging and pleading asking for your assistance with Peezer’s show and tell this week. This week’s letter is:
You remember the rules: It has to be kid-friendly and fit into a repurposed shoebox. I’m sure I will think of something right after I get the image of that damn snake out of my head.
Ready? GO! (And thanks.)
