Elmer Fudd

We have one of those drawers that just collects stuff. You know what I mean... we all have one. Okay, maybe two! Anyway, this particular drawer is for the games, cards, fun stuff like that. The other day I asked Meriam to take all of the cards out of that drawer and match them up by sets. If there wasn't an entire deck it just needed to get thrown out.

As she was matching the decks she was particularly interested in the Looney Toon set.

Meriam (holding up a card): "Is this Elmer Fudd?"

Me: "No, that's Yosemite Sam."

Meriam: "Oh okay."

A couple of minutes later....

Meriam: "So did Elmer Fudd invent Elmer's Glue?"

Me: "Um. No."

Meriam (slightly said with attitude): "Well how do you know?"

Me: "Ummmm...because he's a cartoon?"

Meriam: "Oh yeah, that makes sense!"

This weekend we were enjoying a BBQ with my family when my ex-husband showed up. This is the text conversation that then took place between Meriam and myself:

Meriam: Is IT going to stay?

Me: Don't ask me... IT's yours not mine.

Meriam: It is your fault IT's mine.

Me: Maybe so but the fact is that IT's still yours!

*A few minutes later*

Meriam: You're a trooper for doing him. :)
