less visible.

Standard

how many grandies (and one hoverboard) does it take

to help me carry all of my leftovers home?

four.

this is very kind and also might be a sign

that I am bringing home too much food. 

 

“leftovers in their less visible form are called memories.

stored in the refrigerator of the mind and the cupboard of the heart.”

jello….is it me you’re looking for?

Standard

with the big holiday looming

don’t spend a minute worrying about

what to do with all the leftovers

the solution is just waiting for you to discover

rest easy.

because, jello.

what’s the weirdest jello recipe you’ve ever been served?

was it considered:

a dessert?

a salad substitute?

a side dish of the main meal?

other?

 

“it’s as if we spend our entire lives avoiding Jell-O

but it is always there at the end, waiting.”

no real boundaries in a parade.

this family of turkeys behind the line at the parade

“in general, costumes are the first thing in life

that let other people know who we are.

they indicate who the person is without saying anything.”

traveling with the family to nyc

to spend some quality holiday time
