Apparent Obfuscation

Thursday, 1 April 2010
tags: ,

Really. This is what the saleswoman showed us when she sat us down to go over the proofs. Syl and I were unable to contain the laughter.

Saleswoman: This is just one example of what can be done with your picture.
FrumeSarah: I don’t think this is going to work for us.
SW: People just love getting these…and they come in packs of fifty.
FS: I’m sure they’re great. For Christian people.

Again, people, Easter is a religious holiday.

Which is why Poppyseed’s class had a “Peter Rabbit” party today. The school knows that they aren’t supposed to have an Easter party. But apparently the children’s life experience will be diminished without an egg hunt.

“A-ha! We can call it a Peter Rabbit party and perhaps no one will notice,” thought some well-intended parent.

Except…we noticed.

We had a Easter Egg hunt today, Mama. But they kept calling it a Peter Rabbit egg hunt. {{sigh}} Rabbits aren’t even oviparous.

Impressive use of your new vocabulary word, Poppyseed.

      Thanks. What was even stranger is that this wasn’t even the best of the shot they took. We ended up choosing a completely different pose.

      I think you just love the idea of a six-year-old correctly using the word ‘oviparous’ in a sentence, Chavi 🙂

    is it wrong that i literally laughed out loud at this post? maybe we need t-shirts that say something like “we’re not fooled?!” thanks for the laugh, even about a serious topic. we all need that sometimes!

      Nothing wrong. Syl and I laughed at the time…and for some hours after 🙂
