Smartypants is a little melancholy today. Hit me with your funniest.

Froot Loops and Sesame Street. Kids have it good.

Sometimes, when I am immersed in the cares of this world- betrayal and friendship and love and hate, I wish I could just zip back to an age when stress was my cheeseburger falling apart.


but increasingly complicated

loving someone

and hating what they do

the wounds of a friend


Forgetting the possibility

that all at once

the dagger could strike again


the wounds of a friend


  1. "I wish I could just zip back to an age when stress was my cheeseburger falling apart."

    Would be nice sometimes!

  2. Jess, we cool? Ha - Richy

  3. I like that poem, don't like the reality! Good job - Richy

  4. is r1 putting too much stress in your life?


  5. i wish i could zip back too

  6. "faithful
    the wounds of a friend"

    Ok, ok, I'll put the dagger out now.... sheesh....

  7. Mrs Smartypants,

    How old must you be before it can be said you died of old age?

  8. Mrs SP,

    Since we have angel food cake on earth, do they have people food cake in heaven?

  9. 'people food cake'- probably.

    just like we desire to see angels..
    angels desire to look upon us & God's dealings with us..

    sure, they might want that cake!

    Hey, Jennifer, what would that look like? Could you find out *somehow* & make one?? hee hee

    Jennifer, congrats on your little one on the way!!

  10. iron sharpens iron

    irony sharpens irony

    mrs. sp,
    please explain why music soothes the savage beast

  11. Jess, your poem is painful & tiring to read : )

    to have simplicity in being okay with a 2nd or 3rd wound..

    Keith has been stomping when upset & can't have what he wants (more so when hungry & tired) & stomps on my feet.

    oh, patience for my toddler, Lord, fill me up

  12. Ms SP,

    Can music save my mortal soul as quoted from the song "Bye, Bye Miss American Pie"?

    Just Wondering

  13. hey smarty girl - when sour cream goes bad does it become sweet

  14. Mrs SP,

    Is eating a mermaid considered cannibalism?

  15. Good... good. Keep em coming!

  16. My Dear Ms Smartypants,

    Which is best:
    To put ones socks on both feet, then the shoes, OR sock on left foot, shoe on left foot, then sock on right foot, sock on right foot OR sock on right foot, shoe on right foot then sock on left foot, shoe on left foot?

    Inquiring Mind

  17. Oh Smartypants,

    I've always wondered, can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the car-pool lane?

    Car-pool Carl

  18. Who hurt my Jessica!

    Is it your Hubby? Wassup.? Why so hurt..? Who...?

    Do you want me to take em down?

    Why so crushed?


  19. dear SP

    what does home owner do to remedy problem of one certain mama cat that flails herself upon the window screen in demand of a breakfast platter???

    (by the way, don't tell anyone... but Sing Sing disappeared about a month ago... I don't know what happened to her She must have run off to seek her fortune...)

  20. Dear Ms SP

    If laying in bed wide awake for hours......2am......after prayer and talking to God an still being wide awake........should you.....jump up.....and clean the house or lay there for 3 more hours?

  21. By the way, the poem is NOT about my spouse... it's more of a general lament.

    Waaaa.... Waaaaa.... Waaaaa....

    = )

  23. Yum-O...

    Josh, Shannon -- this is YOUR state. What else should we know about?? =)

    Ham, Latke-Flavored Soda On a Shelf Near You
    Saturday, November 10, 2007

    SEATTLE — Coming soon next to the Coke and Pepsi in a store near you: ham-and latke-flavored soda to make your holiday feast complete.

    It even will be kosher, the company making it says — including the ham.

    Jones Soda Co., the Seattle-based purveyor of offbeat fizzy water, is selling holiday-themed limited-edition packs of flavored sodas.

    The Christmas pack will feature such flavors as Sugar Plum, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog and Christmas Ham. The Hanukkah pack will have Jelly Doughnut, Apple Sauce, Chocolate Coins and Latkes sodas.

    "As always, both packs are kosher and contain zero caffeine," Jones said in a statement.

    The packs will go on sale Sunday, with a portion of the proceeds to be given to charity, the company said.

    Jones' products feature original label art and frequently odd flavors. Last year's seasonal pack was Thanksgiving-themed, with Green Pea, Sweet Potato, Dinner Roll, Turkey and Gravy, and Antacid sodas.

    For its contract to supply soda to Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks, Jones came up with Perspiration, Dirt, Sports Cream and Natural Field Turf. The company — fortunately or unfortunately — prides itself on the accuracy of the taste.

    (Eeewww. Persperation flavored soda????? Just make a gefeltafish flavor and get it over with already. -- lisa)

    Jones also makes more traditional flavors, including root beer, cherry and strawberry sodas.

  24. Dear Ms. SP -
    why do most theological discussions with children happen at bedtime when all you want is for them to put their head down and sleep? Or at bathtime when they ask if Adam & Eve had bellybuttons?

  25. A riddle for everyone...

    The more of these you take, the more you leave behind. What is it?

  26. HEY! You missed the FILM FESTIVAL!!!

    We had over 200 people show up! It was great! I believe lives were touched....and the truth was sent forth....

    We are ready to do it again!!! In theatres, next Spring!!!

    We all learned a lot....and are ready to make more happen....

    Thanks, Jess, for your involvement....

    oh, how's little R2's forehead??? i thought of him several times this afternoon - then I fell asleep and almost missed the FESTIVAL!

    next on the plate - we're preparing the entertainment for the Christmas Banquets for CTK and TFH.... and possibly another venue or two....

    Good night dear friends....
