I bet you think I’m going to tell you about the 4th of July.
Here’s the thing: I’ve already written about how fireworks are legal where I live. I’ve shown you this video of the explosion that burned down my house and told how it resulted in happiness because the son who exploded my house got an “A” on the project he was working on at the time. I’ve shared my jell-o recipe and yes, it’s red, white & blue. Over the past month I’ve featured recipes decorated in the colors of the flag, like my Patriotic Pavlova.
So no, I’m not going to talk about Independence Day. And besides, being predictable in these posts is just not why I do them.
Today I’ve made up some riddles for you using the words I’ve been assigned:
Q: Why is finding a spider in the house patriotic for me?
A: I turn bright red when I fall off the chair I’d been standing on trying to reach it on the ceiling.
I turn white when I get up off the floor and realize I’ve now lost sight of it.
& blue holding my breath until I find it again.
Q: Once I do find it (again) what’s the best way to get rid of a spider in the house?
A: I’m no expert, but I hear that fire works.
Q: Why does the knowledge that I’m baking with alcohol result in both of my boys shutting their doors and putting on their head phones?
A: They don’t want to be startled by the explosion.
Q: Why might you see me doing a happy dance on the kitchen counter?
A: Not all my recipe ideas work but I do love to see a good plan jell – Oh, and I don’t mind embarrassing the boys either.
Q: What comes the day after Saturday and Sunday during the school year (but not in the summer)?
Q: Why do people marching in a parade wave a flag?
A: Because carrying an empty pole would look stupid.
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To avoid the red, white & blue fireworks explosion that’s causing so much happiness to the jell-o eating, flag waving drunk guy who doesn’t realize that Independence Day was two weeks ago. Sheesh, give a chicken a break, will ya?
