“Shut mouf, Burt” is really starting to litter our everyday conversation.
Our new favorite, edifying comic.
Child: “Why do I have to do a paragraph? It’s too hard, I wrote one yesterday, I lost my pencil….”
Sophisticated Parent: “Shut mouf and write paper, Burt!”
I was trying to think what our moms really wanted for Mother’s Day. And then, I realized, it’s the same thing they always want. A family picture with everyone matchy matchy, in some idyllic location (not in an alley), smiling with teeth.
Yes, it is too much to ask. But we tried.
Happy Mother’s Day, mas.
