WANT!

When I was directed to eat whatever I wanted for three days leading up to a blood test, I was excited by the thought of enjoying several things I'd been denied since mid-September.
I wrote a list and put it on the front of the refrigerator.

Mother Wants:
Pizza
Big Mac
Donuts

The family was enthusiastic and supportive.
And the next day, there was another list hanging next to mine.

Younger Son Wants
World Peace
Puppy
Donuts

Silly boy.
A day later, another list appeared.

Elder Son Wants
World Domination
Donuts

Apparently, Elder Son doesn't need as many things to make him happy.
But, clearly, donuts rule the world.

So, are you going to buy the Donuts or make them?

You mean to tell me they don't? I'm shattered ...

Watch Elder Son, it sounds as if he leans toward wearing a scary black outfit and talking about the "Dark Side of the Force ..."

BTW Roses, if you do not change your commenting settings to "Embedded below post," I can not subscribe to follow up comments on your blog.

And, that makes me sad...

I did a piece on it the other day. http://andysredneckramblings.blogspot.com/2012/03/edict-comes-down-from-yours-truly.html

Don't believe Andy. He really does want you to change.

Enjoy the donuts. And your new role as Regent to the World's Monarch!

And puppy trainer.

sod the donuts what about the puppy? I want one, I want one, pretty please. x

brandi said...

Pizza, yes! Big Mac, yes! You can skip everything else.
Although I am having second thoughts about the donuts....
Puppy? Only if it comes with a puppy wee wee walker! This is Minnesnowta, here, ya know. Right next door to you guys. I don't want to walk a puppy in the winter. Ever. Except for a very very good friend. Better be a good reason, too.

Got donuts this morning. :)

They don't rule the world but the people who eat them do. HA!

Bou said...

I love donuts. I could write poetry about donuts...

I want:

1.Free car repair or a car that never breaks down.

2.Free/painless dental work or teeth that never need dental work.

3.To be able to eat solid food again (refer to dental work, above).

I think you can see how my week has played out!

I once had a plan to rule the world based on taking over the coffee trade. I'm fairly sure is Elde son and I joined forces there would be shinny new Austrailias for all.

Dani: Coffee and donuts *would* truly rule the world.
