Beanie, pointing at the picture of the Pillsbury Doughboy on a box of muffin mix: "Who’s that?"
Rose, dead serious, in a grim, disapproving voice: "The devil."
Me, surprised: "Wha?? The devil? Honey, that’s the Pillsbury Doughboy."
Rose: "I call him the devil."
Rose: "I SAW him on a box that said devil’s food!"
No time to elaborate right now, but I wanted to pass on the link: Shakespeare for the Ears by Chirotoons. It’s a $19 disk that has a bunch of mp3 files including an audio recording of Nesbit’s Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare, some old-time radio adaptations of Shakespearean plays, and a bunch of other stuff including PDF files of study guides and whatnot. I have ordered other things from these folks in the past and was quite happy with the quality. Just had to share!
Well. That’s pretty nifty, I must say. But what a pain, and yes I know complaining about keypad typing makes me an old fogey. I know all the kids are doing it these days. Maybe I have finally found the secret to keeping my posts short!
Maybe I’ll just have to live-blog our cross-country trip in haiku. And add the capitals later, because that shift key business is a knuckle-buster.
Does this really work? Whose thumbs can take it?
