Eating Snakes

by Sarah on January 27, 2012 · 11 comments

“Miss Smart, are you eating snakes?”
 ”Oh no, small child. That’s squash. It’s called delicata.”*
*And I made the rings by slicing, scooping, seasoning (with oil, cumin, thyme), and baking.^
^Are you at all surprised by how legitimately disappointed I am that I couldn’t continue with the alliteration there?
 
“Looks like snakes.”
What do you think? Squash skin shoes?
I don’t know…then I’d actually like putting my foot in my mouth.

Then we Are kindred spirits…I'm always putting my foot in my mouth. My old catch phrase was that I put my foot in my mouth so often that now I talk with a limp…get it…lisp…limp…oh, well, it's early…
