My mother keeps asking me if I'm going to finish "That little mouse story, you remember the one, with the snow and the single corn kernel. You know, when you have time for it."

I haven't had time in close to thirty years, which makes me feel oddly guilty --- but she really likes the story, which makes me feel happy --- but of all the stuff I've done in the past thirty years, that's the one she thinks is worth mentioning over and over?

It's a circle of life thing.

Ha! Aw, it's nice to have such a consistent and persistent fan. And now I wanna hear about the little mouse story!

That's sweet that your mom remembers that. And I love the American Pie mythology homework!

Once for history class, my friend and I told the story of Paul Revere as a rap. The only line I still remember is: "Down below lay the dead, six-feet-under in their dirty beds" puh puh, CHH! - puh puh, CHH!

Aw, I heart your mom. Hi, Judy! You can blah, blah, blah at me any old time.

So Tickles, you remember the American Pie Star Wars parody? 'Bye Bye to the little green guy. He trained Vader and Kenobi and Luke to be jedi. And now he's off in that big bog in the sky, singin' Luke there is another young Sky. Luke there is another young Sky....walk....er!' Um, yeah. That was awesome.

That also reminds me of when I was probably nine or ten, I wrote a parody to the tune of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. It was about John and Lorena Bobbit. I'll leave the rest to your imagination. My family still talks about that song.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

LOL! And moms totally remember that stuff. Like FOREVER. :)

B/J Thompson said...

Aw, and I heart you too, Robin! And to my sweet daughter who never rolled her eyes (except when I couldn't see), who always LOOKED as if she was interested in what I was saying, and almost always laughs at my jokes...I love you dearly! "blah, blah, blah..."blahhed Mom! PS. I think Ms. V. planned to use that song in her class each semester. At least she kept asking me if I thought you'd mind!

Adam Heine said...

Aw, I wanna know what Debbie said too...

Kristan said...

Lol. Yeah, what Susan said.

Also, does a grown woman who regularly wears her hair in odangos really have any right to judge you?

L. T. Host said...

I only have one question:

What the tater-tot are odangos?

Stephanie Thornton said...

Haha! I once wrote a story about escaping my 12th grade government class through a hole in the ceiling. I think it's the only thing I've written that most of my friends have ever read.

And I had no idea what odangos were until today!

K. Marie Criddle said...

Keri - I NEED TO SEE THAT RAP REENACTED AND POSTED ON YOUTUBE.

Robin - YOU TOO WITH THE BOBBIT. Also, if prompted a little, I can totally still recite all six verses of that SW Pie song for you. That's how much I loved it.

Susan - Ha! I can't wait to see what my little girl will have for me in a few writable years. :)

Mom - I'm glad you understand the true genesis of this phrase!! I never thought you blahhed, I was just EXPERIMENTING. (And seriously? She still used that? Dang, I liked Ms. K.)

Adam - Debbie always had the coolest stories. At least the beginnings of them.

Kristan - I know, right?? She actually was really cool, though, odangos aside. She all blamed us once for making her kill her Tamagotchi. Mua ha ha.

L.T. - It's Sailor Moon hair! Meatballs on the head! (Mmm...meatballs and tater tots...now I'm hungry.)

Stephanie - Ha! Love it. I hope that's included as a website extra when your book comes out one day! :D

Peggy Eddleman said...

Hahahaha! Your mom is awesome. You'll live on in immortality forever with that one!

K. Marie Criddle said...

If it's the only thing people remember me for, I'll be happy. (NO I WON'T PLEASE REMEMBER ME FOR OTHER THINGS)

Lindsay N. Currie said...

Awwww, I thought this was fantastic! So nice to "meet" you BTW - I've seen your name pop up in a few places but didn't know we were agency sisters:) Hope you had a LOVELY thanksgiving!
