Funny stuff. I Laughed out Loud at the grenade in the French kitchen (which I think is a good idea, anyway.)

Tash,

Sure you could!! I think every writer has a silly bone somewhere because we always observe everything with a writer's eye. Sometimes, the absurdity of life and its words just tickles us.

You Sweetie! This would be a man's position on mopping the floors! I had to giggle because I've often felt like using a hand grenade and a John Deere to do my cleaning!!

Blessings,
