Crunch crunch munch crrchhh

"But I don't want to swim in there!" Johnny cried. "I'll get wet! And something will eat me!"

Mom shrugged. "That's the way it is. Some of us snap, some of us crackle. Your uncle Louie even popped. He always did have to be different. Now hurry up. The milk is waiting, and someone's hungry."

Oh that is sooo cute! Never thought about the poor guy who popped before! Very clever 55!

Janna said...

Kathleen: It was a moment of joy AND a snack break, all rolled up into one. :)

TallKay: I hope he popped outdoors. Sometimes those stains never come out of the carpet. ;)

Came by your blog for the first time today, just surfing around the 55s. You are really funny. I think I'll stay and visit a while. I loved the idea of Uncle Louie popping.

Larry said...

Uncle louie was the one I heard POP it was rather rude because he was such a big fella. You know when a big guy pops it's rude N ugly with all that flabbiness if ya know what I mean..
Loved the post it was fun to play with too. I'm up also just follow the link below.

Janna said...

Larry: I tend to feel rather flabby myself these days. Maybe Uncle Louie and I could have a popping contest.

MIke Kilgore said...

Thanks , Janna, how will I ever eat a Rice Krispie treat again????
Very fun 55-thanks for stopping by mine!

Janna said...

MikeKilgore: Rice Krispy treats are great, as long as you can ignore the screams. :)
