Toes, Tongue, Tattletail, & Tazo Tuesday

It's important to keep your speckles very sparkly.

Now for the tattletail part: Last week, Daddy was going to have a bowl of cereal for dinner because Mama can not cook to save her life. Oh, wait. That is not the tattling part. Anyway, he poured the milk all over his cereal and it came out of the carton all chunky. It grossed him out, plus he was a little bit mad because an entire bowl of Cap'n Crunch was wasted. hee hee Mama started feeling around in the refrigerator and everything was warm. She was a little bit crabbilated because she had just bought lots of groceries the night before. She wented to work and told everybody about the refrigerator and they all told her that you have to clean off the coily parts every once in a while. (That's a little bit of the tattletail part because the refrigerator is 8 years old and they'ver never pulled it out before - hee hee) So Daddy camed home on Friday and Mama had him pull out the fridge and they cleaned everything out (AND found a ton of jingle balls and milk jug rings and my very favorite disembodied ear from one of Titus' stuffies). It still didn't do anything to help it be colder. And Mama started pricing the refrigerator of her dreams (she really doesn't like our fridge at all). A few hours later, everything was still warm so Daddy started poking around in there. And here's the tattletail part (hee hee): there was an empty pretzel bag pushed up against the venty part waaaaay in the back of the fridge. Once Daddy pulled it out, the fridge kicked on and started cranking out the cold. He was happy. Mama? Not so much. Her dreams of a new fridge went right down the drain. hee hee

And I bet you're asking why on earth there was a empty pretzel bag in the fridge? Well, if you throw anything remotely tasty-smelling in the trash, the boys pull it out. And EG will nom on plastic like there's no tomorrow (he really has helped us become a greener household since Mama doesn't really want to go throught the whole obstruction thang again - hee hee). So sometimes, if the trash isn't ready to be put outside, Mama and Daddy will just chuck it in the fridge for safekeeping. She says they probably shouldn't do that any more. Unless, she wants to get a jump start on a new fridge...


  1. My mom hates to cook. She is so thankful for human sister (daughter). We know how your mom feels... about a new refrigerator!

  2. Sounds to us like maybe an old fridge for trash and a new one for food? Would that work, Tazo?

  3. I khan send a BIG HONKIN' BAG of Sibe Fluff....

    Woo khould pakhk into the khoils...

    Please let me know!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Titus!

  4. We sure are glad that your dad figured out what happened to make the fridge warm. Saved lots of money that can be used for delicious treats! (Your poor mom didn't get a new one, however, but treats are far more importatnt!)

  5. Hee-hee that is a funny story but I'm sorry your Mom didn't get her new refrigerator. We used to have to hide stuff from Bounce in the refrigerator because he would eat anything!

  6. Our Mom is on the prowl for the fridge of her dreams too. She also uses the freezer in the garage to store any stinky garbage until trash day - it can really get pretty hot in our garage and OH THAT STINK.

    Tail wags, the OP Pack

  7. Oh my, that is a very funny story. Mom has to barricade the garbage from me, as I like to spread it all over the floor.


    Sorry about the fridge. Do tell your mom that new fridges use less energy than 8 year old fridges.

  8. Yikes about all that food spoiling. There was probably lots of nomming opportunities lost.

    Mom got a new fridge a few years ago when we moved to Georgia. Her old one was about 15 years old and it was the only one that would fit into the small space in her tiny cottage kitchen. The only thing the new one does that her old one didn't is the water and ice in the door thing. That totally is a necessity from now on! We get chilled water now, and ice cubes for our outside water. Chilled water ROCKS!

  9. Hahahaha! That's a funny story! Too bad about not getting a new refrigerator though.

    My Mommie knows how to cook real good... in the MICROWAVE! Our oven only goes on for frozen pizza.

  10. Hahaha! That's a good tattle tail!!

  11. Well yoo know if another bag just so happened to get stuck again then yer mom wudnt be crabbilated so much. Get to work kittehs help yer mom out!

  12. See, you never have these problems with a good old-fashioned ice box! ;-)

  13. Oh goodness! That is very funny!!!

    Poor Mom.....can't get her new fridge.


Thanks fur stopping by!
