Forget It


“No, first the noose then the head, neck, torso and limbs. Guess carefully, a life hangs in the balance. Too many wrong answers and…well…forget it. Let’s play Old Maid instead. The player who ends up with the Old Maid is the loser. Why? Well…because…forget it. It’s time for lunch. I made yummy cheesy grilled eggplant sandwiches! I know you don’t like eggs, no we’re not having eggs. It’s called eggplant but it’s not an egg…or a plant…it’s purple…forget it.”

The hardest part of toddlermommyhood might be having to explain the inexplicable.

  One thought on “Forget It

    SHE DOESN’T LIKE EGGS??? Maybe you can scramble up eggplant into eggs like a purple migas? It looks like a nail is stuck through that Old Maid’s bun. Truth be told, if I hadn’t played it as a child and was just seeing it for the first time as a militant feminist (who has time for THAT?), I would think Old Maid was mean and derogatory. She looks happy enough and has fabulous accessories.

      I couldn’t agree more! Which is why I gave up on explaining why nobody wants to end up with the Old Maid. Poor gal in her snappy glasses and carpenter nail hair accents.

    How about hopscotch, Oliva and sis Sandra? That’s where you jump in on one foot and count as you bounce … oh, forget it! That is tough, mi hermanita!

      No kidding, hermano. And how about trying to explain Elsa in handcuffs on the 5pm news? “Sweetheart it’s not real. I know it looks real, the handcuffs are real, yeah that’s a real cop, and it’s on the news…forget it.” It’s no bother really. Some things in life are inexplicable, right? It’s a good lesson in what will be will be.

        She might as well learn now, Sandra. Sigh. Just leave out the really bad and ugly and unfortunate details. Parents these days have to be editors, too, sis, I guess.

    Yes, we all go through the explaining sometimes with no success.
