Elmo Juice

A little while ago I opened the fridge ... and behold, I found a couple of new juice selections...

Bob: "Joy-eeeece!"

Joyce: "Yay-ess?"

Bob: "We have Elmo Juice in the fridge ... and Belle from 'Beauty and the Beast' is trapped inside a plastic wrap, and she seems to be staring at me rather accusingly."

Joyce: "That's Cinderella."

Bob: "My bad. Uhhh --- does this have anything to do with the granddaughter flying in from Alaska on Tuesday?"

Joyce: "Why yes, as a matter of fact, it does."

Bob: "That's okay then. I'm just glad to know you aren't buying the Elmo Juice for me."

Joyce: "Now that raises an interesting question: What do you suppose is in Elmo Juice?"

Bob: "Isn't that obvious? You take a quart pitcher of water and stir in a half cup of ground Elmo..."

Joyce: "Dear, that's obvious only to you."

I wish there was some way to record the chuckling and chuckling emmanating from your chair as you wrote this post. I knew it would be a good one. And look at all the good exercise you gave your belly. It made me chuckle to hear you.

Actually, the credit belongs to Andy who inquired about whatall Elmo juice is. I know Andy likes to shop, so surely they have Elmo juice in Alaska!

And you can almost make out the diet cokes that Lauren likes...

good frig capture there, Bob! And thank you for assembling the toddler bed and the Christmas Tree for Abby.

word verification: artallar: Abby is too tall for the pack and play bed.

Your Elmo juice recipe is hysterical...
I might have to use it...

joyce said...

it says one hundred per cent fruit juice. but, I bet its a mixture, as it says "punch".

Mrs. JP said...

Wow,,,that Cinderella character does look kinda spooky! Yikes.

My kids only get juice boxes from my parents' house and let me tell you, they score big points on account of them!

Bob said...

That's what grandparents are for.

Mrs JP--
You got that right. Seeing Cinderella encased in plastic in the refrigerator will seriously creep out anyone.

Really? I says "punch"? So are we supposed to punch it? And yes, I did enjoy writing this. (Thanks for not pointing out the artistic license I take when I blog -- my embellishing will just be our little secret.)

Caution: I may have gotten the Elmo-to-water ratio wrong.

joyce said...

your chuckling and chuckling at your self was well worth any artistic license you wanna take. Just don't make me look like a shrew. ha

and thanks for not telling Ben the secret indredient in the new biscuit recipe. I ate three today, and they put me to sleep sitting here at this computer chair!

joyce said...

remember that old "punch" commercial for the little Hawaiian guy (probably too politically incorrect now) that would ask if you'd want an Hawaiian punch? And then he'd sock you and laugh?

where we get spagetti, and some go on vacations. also spelled Italy.

alas, the princess juice, and most of the elmo juice is headed to Houston. Five months ago, Abby would guzzle the apple juice. Not yesterday. Not today. And she really likes the bed you assembled. Too cute.

Elmo Juice? Isn't that what Tiger Woods has been um, sharing?

Hey the grandbaby is coming? Lucky you!
