Hello – What? πŸ€”

Hi Everyone!

Hope: I can’t believe it?
Dot: Oh! Shot-clog Abby left the building!
Hope: Yes!! She just walked right out without paying the lunch bill! What a shot-clog!!!
Mabel: I can still see her. Do you want me to give a yell? You know my voice carries for blocks.
Hope: Thanks Mabel, I truly love to hear your voice. Just let her go.

Dot & Mabel: We will just split the bill this time.
Hope: No, that’s okay. I’m going to send her a bill in the mail marked “payment due” in fifteen (15) days. Late charge $25.00.
We all looked at each other and said “great idea” and started “laughing so hard” our hats feel off.

Hi Everyone!

What is your favorite “buzzword” to use?

Makeup products may use organic, natural, Vegan,
Foods may use organic, natural
,
Flavors may use both natural and organic,
Household products use “eco-friendly”, natural, green.

Me I use “bonkers” to describe myself. Bonkers is a nice way of saying your crazy, mad. I might say I’m “bonkers” for the new Hellboy 2019 movie.
The first time I heard “bonkers” was in Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska.

Have a great day! Hope
