Call it Your "Family Share Plan"

Today's entry is about toffee. HA! I kid! It's still about fudge...

December 16:

This morning you overheard the same teen-ager from yesterday whining into her new $300 cell phone that she's "hardly getting anything for Christmas this year".

Fudge is magical with those phones, especially when the hot marshmallow mixture is poured directly onto the keypad.

("Can you hear me now?" )

Denae--you are cracking me UP this month! I am loving these entries. :)

You are a riot. A fudge phone??? I think if the $300 dollar phone was taken from said teenager and wrapped up and put under the tree. Just maybe they would realize that they are getting and have a whole lot more than they think they are at Christmas as well as year round.

So funny! I wonder how her phone plan feels about replacing such damage.
Hope you are doing well.
Are you coming to save your daughter from the depths of the Artic ice?

I needed that chuckle this morning!!!

The gimmee, gimmee sydrome is a constant struggle, but especially at Christmas time!

Becca said...

Love. Love. You are the goddess of Christmas cheer.

Just wanted to pop in and say I am enjoying your fudgey humor as much this year as last year and the year before and the year before that! Yes I am that much of a fan, or that much of a nerd, that I keep it in my file for a good chuckle every year when stress is high. So, when are we going to see your book out in bookstores?

This made me laugh and laugh DeNae...

I would remark on the audacity of teens yet do not want to call the kettle black since I had a few bratty episodes back in my day too.

I know I don't often comment on your posts, but you make me literally laugh out loud every single day.

I just thought you should know. :-)

This is a situation which does indeed call for the heavy artillery. Like fudge. Or skittles. I'm going with the skittles.

Don't get me started on teenagers and cell phones. A fudge phone is about all I think I'd let my kids have. =P

My kids are just excited when they get reception---you gotta move them to the middle of nowhere Montana for THAT kind of gratitude...
