Purple Pumpkin?

Well, it’s not really purple.   It’s orange.   Annnnd, technically it’s not a pumpkin, it’s an orange.    Okay, okay!    It’s an orange orange, and the whole title is just 1 big lie!     Whew!   That feels better getting that off my chest.

The only reason I even said anything about pumpkins is, PP called it a “Puh-kin”.    Which you can see why:

huge orange

Pumpkin? or Orange?

 

It’s the same size, shape, and color of the mini pumpkin she had back in the fall!    And look!    It even has ridges on it!!!    All the evidence of her eyes support her hypothesis!

ridges in side of orange looks like pumpkin

Looks like a pumpkin to me!!

 

 

 Can you blame the poor baby for thinking it’s a “puh-kin”???    Considering she had never in her LIFE seen such a big orange,  she did a great job identifying it, I think!    Well, I could be just a little prejudiced, but I don’t think so!!!

 

 

But, there really ARE purple pumpkins.    See????

Hates:  Hmmmm, this is harder.

  1.  Bad grammar, especially in a love letter.  In 8th grade, I red-lined all my boyfriend’s love letters, and sent them back for editing!  Yes, I really did!  The gall!
  2. Long hair, on me.  I whack it off every chance I get.  When my girls were in Elementary school, I even shaved my head, much to their chagrin, and Mama’s horror!
  3. Shaving my legs.  Enough said.
  4. Abortion.  This is serious, I just couldn’t be all funny, without speaking up for the unborn.  They are precious little lives, no matter what stage of gestation.
  5. Frustation!  I’m not the most techie person in the world, so I get upset when I can’t just do what I want to do!  Why don’t I have a computer I can just speak to, and it instantly does my bidding????  WHY????
  6. Not having a sarcasm font.  I’ve asked for it enough times.  Someone should have invented this already!!
  7. Green. Yuck!
  8. Sushi.  Just the thought of it makes me queasy.  Believe me, I’ve eaten my share of stuff, so let me slide, okay?  Thanks!
  9. Running out of ice… and since I live alone, this would be the fault of ?????
  10. When I don’t get a nap.  So does everyone around me hate when this happens!!  (Can you say Grumpy?  I thought you could.)

Okay, so there’s that, then.  Onto the nominations.  And the awards go to:
