Limerick madness returns to California

Me, my sister, my mother, Lance, and Mandy played the limerick game (each of us wrote one line of a limerick and then passed it, wrote the next line, and so on, until all five poems were finished). Great group!! We came up with some gems:

A blowfish came out of the sky
When a starfish hit him in the eye.
The blowfish cried "Ow!
The rules don't allow
for eye hits," he said with a sigh.

Dress ruffles collect all the crumbs
So do beards and pockets and gum.
When I shake out my shirt
And start my dessert,
My day's collection goes into my tum!

This one is my personal favorite:

The two girls wanted to bake a cake
With lots of sprinkles, for goodness sake!
Sugar high was the goal,
For the night, as you know,
Is sweet when you spend it awake.

Great stuff!

Lunch preparations...

Angela: I want to help you!
Me: OK, do you want to wash the grapes?
Angela: Umm...Actually, right now, I need to dance...

Elizabeth: I want to cut up the strawberries!
Me: Umm...
Elizabeth: [reassuringly] I'll use a butter knife.
Me: Oh, alright. You can cut them up into quarters like this.
Elizabeth: No, I want to cut them another way. Now they're all going to look different.
