    #741 Believe it or Not. Mr. PJ has corduroy shorts left over from the 70s. Not only made of the finest wide wale corduroy, they are also cut very short.

    He does not understand when I plant myself in the doorway and repeat the word NO like an over wound metronome until he cracks and takes them off and puts on anything else. Anything.

    I am certain he is saving them to wear in The Home after I die.

    What, festive paper towels don’t completely transform your kitchen?

    Toddlers. I have a theory that we are all born with a finite amount of energy. Because that energy is contained in such a small container when you are a toddler, it is impossible to keep it contained, thus they move like the Flash on Ritalin. As we get older, and consequently bigger, the energy has more space to spread around, so we slow down on the outside. This does not however explain Tommy Tune’s tapping toes.
