Be As Smart As You

by Shari on December 1, 2011


Apparently, The Pistol wants to launch her own website.

I came home from a work function to this on my table and was, all at once, delighted, impressed, taken aback and thoughtful. And I tried to figure out how she cooked it up in her little convection oven of a brain.

Here are the factors I think led to this creation:

1. Do Your Best. I always try to drum into my kids that they don't have to be THE best, but they should always try to be THEIR best. "Whole-hearted" and "give it your all" is my mantra. I genuinely believe that since God made every single person to be completely unique, all he asks is that we do our best to be 100% the person he designed. Be as smart as you can, and no smarter.

2. There is such a thing as a Smart potion. As you can see, the animal in the middle is handing out potions to the two participants (I'm assuming the wickedly happy one on the left is The Smarter, a.k.a. The Pistol). She is in a scientific phase, constantly making potions out of dish soap, boogers and orange juice and the like, and insisting that they will solve all your problems. The grumpy animal on the right obviously got the booger potion that makes you dumber.

3. I am not on the computer too much, shut up. Lately everything has been www.this and www.that, which can only mean that she's emulating someone. Thank God I know it's not me, because I never ever ever try to squeeze some work in when they're home from school so that they are watching too much Spongebob and eating junk food and lighting matches and sticking forks in the electrical sockets and calling 911 to say that their mother is paralyzed by a small white box with an Apple on it so I don't know where this is coming from, so shut.up.


I'm over on Aiming Low today, telling the very sad and very true tale of the time my dog pooped in my hair. Come on over and enjoy!

This is too cute! She cracks me up. Does she have a potion that could help me to ace my Evolution final? It’s going to be a pain. Preferably without boogers!
