Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I won't name names, but some of you bent the contest rules yesterday. One comment per day does not mean you are allowed to put multiple guesses in your one comment. Play nicely and stick to one guess a day, please.
Mommy always has to give such specific instructions.
Now, where are the tulips today?
Ah, here they are in the family room, on top of the pie safe. They wanted to prove they aren't afraid of heights.
Because no one guessed the giver* of the tulips correctly yesterday, I offer one clue to help you decide who sent the tulips: The tulips were delivered by a florist.
Next on our agenda is a video in which George Carlin talks about how "shell shock" eventually become "PTSD." I saw this video on someone's blog and wanted to ask the blogger "do you mind if I use it," but it didn't work because I thought the blog was fishducky's at fishducky, finally! I emailed fishducky to ask if she objected to my using the George Carlin video she used recently. She said she didn't know what I was talking about, but to go ahead and use whatever I wanted. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Thus, I don't know which blog showed this video, but I thank the person who used it because it helps me make my point:
Notice, please, that we (Americans) change words as we try to depart from reality.
Here's a photo, taken during the first World War, of a shell-shocked soldier:
So sad, isn't it?
I look forward to reading your guesses: Who sent the tulips?
Infinities of love,
