The Naming

Have you ever wondered how Chris's Coop got its name? Did I hear you say no? Oh dear! That is just so sad because I really have nothing to write about today. I am starting to get desperate. Up to now I think that I have been doing pretty durn good topic wise. Least you think that maybe I am acting a little bit the smarty pants, I want you to know that most of what I write is Oops having a brain fluff, will return and insert word that is acting illusive later when it comes to me satire directed at mostly myself.

Hmmm...I am thinking that maybe I have wrote about this topic before. Waves of dejavu crashing in my brain saying "check the archives" I answer "I don't think so, it is way too early in the morning for that plus I am desperate. Excuse me while I go and get another cup of coffee."

When I was little I always wanted a play house like my friend had. Her play house looked like something that came out of Hansel and Grettle. If you remember, that is if you can remember back that far, that play house was built to lure little children. If I would have been the child in that story, I certainly would have become witch food.

With the object of my desire firmly entrenched in my heart, I began the process of getting what I wanted. I began to hound my poor parents. In the morning I would ask: "Could I have a playhouse like Linda's?" I would ask at lunch, supper and before bed. "Please, please please" I asked both parents. "Could I please have a playhouse like Linda"s?" I was always polite and did not whine because if I had learned one thing about my Mom and Dad was that whining got a child nowhere. Please don't bother my Mom with questions regarding my good behavior because I am sure she can not remember that far back. She would probably say: "What playhouse?" My Dad is in heaven so I think he will be a little hard to reach. You will just have to take my word for it that I was an extraordinarily behaved little girl! I clearly remember the day that one of my parents broke down....


Part two to follow because I am at the point where I need to ration my material.

ROFL! You are hilarious breaking this up into parts. I can't wait to read the next part(s)!

i have a feeling that i know what it will be... it will be 5 words, is my guess... 17 letters... with possible exclamation points... but i'll probably be wrong... you have a gift for embelishment... so the 5 words i'm thinking of will probably take 3 or 4 paragraphs lol...

here's wishing you the safest of trips, great weather, and an enjoyble journey

I just know you were the bestest little girl around and that your constant begging could not have been considered whining at all...
