Hot Toe Picker

DaGoddess @ 13:56

If you’ve never watched an episode of Foster’s Home of Imaginary Friends (the ep is “Squeeze the Day”), do yourself a favor and check out the one episode where is left at home all alone and is suffering from Boreditism™. It’s one of the best of the whole genius bunch. (I’m so sad there’ll be no more new episodes after next month.)

This is often the conversation between LD and crazy mom on a hot day:

Weather Forecaster: As a cold front sweeps in, you can expect showers in Spokane
Blooregard “Bloo” Q. Kazoo: Showers in Spokane. Spooo-Caaaahhhnn.
Weather Forecaster: Temperatures are up there, and it’s hot in Topeka.
Bloo: It’s hoooooooot in Toooooo-Peeeee-Kaaaaaaahhhh. It’s hot. Hot hot. Hot. Hot. *breathes out* Haawwwwt. Hawwwwwt. It’s Hot hot hot! It’s hot in Topeka! Toe-peeker. I’m a toe-pick. I’m a hot toe-picker. Pick my toe, it’s hot! Pick my hot toe-pick-it! Topeka’s hot. My toe is hot. Pick it. It’s hot in Topeka. It’s hot. It’s hot! Its hot. It’s Hooooot! It’s Hotten, it’s hotten, it’s hot in Topeka!

Guess what? It’s hot. In Poway. The stupid internet says it’s only 95˚. I beg to differ. Maybe it was at 9:30am when I left for pool therapy, but it ain’t that now! I missed the mid-town thermometer, too, because the phone rang right about that time and it was the school calling. (Just a recorded message from the principal about an unknown “person of interest” seen on the school grounds who turned out to be someone hired by the local soccer arena, blah blah blah. At least they let us know what’s going on.) Anyhow, I missed the temp at 1300. Oh well. I’m indoors now with the blinds closed, the fan on, and my pain meds kicking in. I’m staying right here for the time being.

Wanna know something funny? I got a little sunburn while at pool therapy. It’s an indoor pool, too. I’ll let that sink in for a few. Can you figure out how this happened? Post your guess in the comments and whoever gets it right will get a prize of some sort. Gotta have while our brains are melting, right? Right.


  1. A sunburn while swimming in an indoor pool? Is the roof a ‘greenhouse’ type? I’ve seen one of those; very cool.

    Hmmm… or walking to and from transpo?

  2. I would guess that there was too much chlorine in the pool, which would make it a chemical burn, not a sunburn. Did it turn your hair green, too?

  3. Hmm, 72° and sunshine all afternoon here. Just about damn perfect…

  4. It is 47 degrees and rainy and windy tonight, going down to about 43 by dawn. Tomorrow’s high will only be 49 degrees, and Tuesday night we will have a chance of snow showers. I would love to have your 95 degrees…..

  5. Pam, you genius, it was one of those greenhouse type roofs. Guess I owe you a prize of some sort. Whatcha want?
