The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Eat Shades

Imagine for a moment you are Imp, walking around the backyard, enjoying the nice fall weather. You are relaxed, comfortably dirty, and you have your shades on. Life is good.

Then suddenly, ATTACK!

Maple: 10 points. Imp: 0 points. Sunglasses: Beyond repair.

"Imp, don't let the dog eat your sunglasses! That was your last pair."

"Mommy, don't worry, the stores have plenty of sunglasses. We can buy some new ones".

Oh dear, here goes the lecture AGAIN that money AND sunglasses do not grow on trees...

That darn smug dog.


  1. That picture is HIL-A-R-OUS!!!! I love a great dog photo.

  2. Those are great pictures! They really struck a chord in me - aren't dogs supposed to grow out of this stage at some point?

  3. My daughter says the same thing about the headbands she keeps losing! Last week, exactly 15 minutes after purchasing a new black headband to replace the one she had lost I discovered that one was lost as well, she said, "don't worry Mom, there's plenty where that came from."

  4. I hate that lecture! I never thought I'd be the person to repeat everything my mom said to me, yet here I am.

    And I don't even have kids. It's my boyfriend's son.

    I have to giggle at how completely clueless kids are about money.

  5. What a laugh! My Jack Russell stole a pair of my eyeglasses that were laying on an outdoor table and mangled them. Walmart managed to put them back together not once...but it happened again! Bad dog! Peggy from PA
