Conversations With Lucy

"I like Tom and Jerry. I like to eat Tom and Jerry. I like to hug the cat and eat the mouse. He's tasty, like chocolate. I want to dunk the mouse in chocoate and eat him," Lucy explained.

"That's nice, honey; Good night."

"Good night," she said.

  1. Over the weekend, I took a mouse for a ride in the car. He had been staying with us, but he had overstayed his welcome. Lured by the promise of peanut butter and tortilla chips, he found himself being driven out of town in a snowstorm.

    I took him to the usual spot. There's a dense carpet of dry needles on the ground under the line of pines and a little forest nearby for the outdoorsy types. If they want to chance their luck with a new person's hospitality, there is a cluster of university outbuildings in the other direction: sheds and garages and whatnot.

    He didn't want to go, but he bid me a beady-eyed, wiggly-nosed farewell by the light of my headlights and scampered off into the underbrush.

    He was cute, but I don't think I'd dunk him in chocolate and eat him.

  2. Blinder!! Give that kid a black beret & sunglasses and sign her up for open mike nite at the Barking Spider.

    I wonder what else she would've said if you didn't say "goodnight"??

  4. Then she's going to squish his head off and hang him from her rearview mirror.

  7. If you read this in the voice of Will Ferrell, it's really freaking hilarious.
