Easter Eve is here and in houses throughout the land people are nearly dropping dead each time they open refrigerator doors as they are overcome by the toxic, obnoxious scent of hardboiled eggs. “Mom, it smells like something died in the fridge.” We walk around with blue fingertips from the dye we couldn’t remove from our fingers because the stupid little wire thingies that are used to scoop the eggs out of the dye never works quite right. And the microwave is all sticky from the Peep’s we never tire of blowing up.
And tonight when the children are sleeping the Easter Bunny will hide their baskets, typically in a high location or a place where the dog can’t get at them. In the morning they will eat the ears off of their giant chocolate bunnies and walk around with chocolate smiles and brown stains down the front of their PJ’s.
Later in the day they will hunt for Easter Eggs in the back yard. The eggs have to be hidden at a strategic time though as our dog Charlie has figured out how to crack open the plastic wonders and last year he ate many pieces of candy that he found inside. The children will run around wildly through the yard and inevitably someone will step in a pile of dog crap

My mother always sang ORGAN in place of orchid. An organ for your mommy? Was she thinking a giant keyboard type thing or a body part? That makes the song kind of creepy doesn’t it? Imagine mommy getting a lung or heart from Peter Cottontail for an Easter gift.

only $14.99 but sadly they are sold out. If you have never been to the ThinkGeek site, you have to check it out. They have the funniest stuff. From canned
