If You Give Him an Inch

Wednesday, November 14, 2007
Mom,

More proof that my mixed up metaphors will cause my career and reputation damage- or at least confuse the heck out of people.

Can you help me explain why, when in discussion with some of my colleagues, I shook my head slowly, sighed and said, "well, if you give a mouse a cookie..."?

Laura Joff-Numeroff's stories have imparted much wisdom to the young - If you give a mouse a cookie, If you give a moose a muffin, If you give a pig a pancake...all genious.

You must have snuck into the Kindergarten room and read all my favorite books. We wrote our own stories--if you take a mouse to the hockey rink, if you take a pig to a party, etc. Perhaps you could write one of your own.......

Somehow I think that "If You Give A Megan A Gin And Tonic" wouldn't hit the children's bestsellers list.

Sorry Mom.

PatZ said...

no, but I bet you could sell it at AA meetings.

But it comes prepackaged with mini-bar sized bottles of blue sapphire! That wouldn't go over well at AA.

Or WOULD it?
