I Think I Know Where Jimmy Hoffa May Be Buried


My boy's room.  It's like walking through a minefield.  Whenever I open the door and peek inside, the song "Why" by Annie Lennox pops into my head.  If you're not familiar with that song, you can listen to it here: . Copyright infringement aside, I think it's fun to replace song lyrics with some of my own.  For example (and dig the cool unintended arrow formation):

How many times do I have to try to tell you
To please pick up after you’re done?
But when I start to try to tell you
That’s when you always tell me
Hey...Ma, I've only just begun.
I tell myself too many times
Why don’t I ever learn to just keep his door shut?
That’s why I’m scared to look inside and see
Those Legos scattered all around
Scattered all around
Scattered all around
Tell me…

Now mind you, my kid is awesome in every way and I wouldn't change a thing about him.  It's just that boys are really messy.  Really.  Messy.  The picture above shows his room at one week post-cleaning.  If it went any longer than that, I am confident that there would be no visible carpet left.  But, tomorrow is cleaning day and all will be right with the world (at least for a few hours).  

In other news, I'm going to try to post more often since this blog is totally lame with only 3 posts.  Therefore, I'd like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to my 6 followers.  If it wasn't for you guys, I just don't know where I'd be today.  I really do it for the fans, you know?  


  1. You are a hoot and a pip. I am one of your six followers, so you are welcome ;)

  2. You are pretty hoot-worthy yourself!

  3. I wish the picture was scratch-n-sniff. The visual doesn't do it any justice without the "boy smell"!!!

  4. First of all, your Annie Lennox remake KILLZ.

    Second of all, a big "HOLLA" to MarshallK for his insightful addition of the "scratch-n-sniff" reference...I hear ya on the boy can take over a room like a B.O. monsoon...

    Third, NickyB ain't got SH%# on Jack's room. I only see 147 legos out in Nick's room. Jackson's has at least 382...not to mention the miscellaneous gameboy games and pokemon cards...walking through there can be like navigating a mine field (and since I have broken my toe stepping on a lego in the past, I say this with all seriousness...)

    Last, I promise to sign up as a follower right after I leave this comment. You are one funny woman, Mrs. B, and I don't want to miss a thing!!!
