How's *this* for muchness?

Since we still only have one road worthy vehicle, I usually drive Mike to work so I can use the car during the day. Or rather, I'm the bleary absolutely-not-a-morning-person riding as the passenger until we get to his office.

Anyway, on our drive yesterday morning, there came a faint buzz and then a chirping from my back pocket. It took him a second but Mike looked at me.

"Was that you?"

"Yeah," I said. "It was my iPhone reminding me about court tomorrow." My hit (twice) and run driver was changing his plea and I wanted to watch.

Mike nodded. "....and in today's legal news, traffic court proceedings were continuously disrupted by a small, angry woman who kept leaping to her feet and yelling, 'Off with his head!"*

I smiled wryly. "I am so blogging that."

(I'll let you know how it goes.)

*I was once in a production of Alice in Wonderland. 8th grade, I think it was. I played The Duck. Don't ask.

Boo-yah! I'll make you a sceptre!!!

Shouldn't that be "Leaping to her foot"?

Ducks & Runs....

I hope the TSA doesn't see this post, they'll assume you're hiding a machete in your leg....

Robert, Robert, Robert.

You know reporters never check their facts. And in this case, any one that did, would probably be thumped severely.

It is generally assumed (and usually a fairly reasonable assumption) that when a small, angry woman is leaping up and down and yelling "Off with his head!", that she is leaping from two feet.

We know that our beloved Breda only has one permanently attached foot, but the reporter would have no reason to make that assumption, unless she were to have a crutch with her.


The more important question now, is:

How'd it go, Breda?

Lydia said...

yes, Alice in Wonderland was 8th grade for you...I was on the stage crew for the show.

Breda said...

You'd better not have photos.

PPPP said...

Ooh, ooh, ooh. Please, Lydia, please? Photos ?????

Lydia said...

sadly, I have no photos of that show...her high school graduation party is another story.
