We should have done a linky today. Mer, Kellie, Gretchen, and Tiffani did this meme and I’m copying because other than finding all of my Italian pottery serving pieces on the floor of the boys’ bathroom filled with water and floating Lego pieces, and making inedible soup for supper (a meal only saved by Whimzie’s Crack Popcorn), nothing much happened around here yesterday to warrant an interesting post.
So I brought them in for questioning and here’s what they had to offer, unedited. Since this is a game that Travis is challenged to participate in, I’m going to provide his answers in italics as the truth. Tommy’s in blue and JJ’s in purple.
