….as we drove up our long driveway.

The Peanut Gallery: LOOK at that – it’s simply AMAZING.

Moi (‘cause obviously he’s referring to the fact that my pink flamingo flock looks especially vibrant and remarkable now that the green foliage of his front walkway has died back enough to look like said flamingos are CONSUMING HIS GARDEN): Yeah, totally AWESOME!

Moi, agreeably (thinking SOMEBODY HAS FINALLY SEEN THE LIGHT. The Pink Flamingo Light, that is…): There’s something about dark days that make bright color just POP.


TPG (warming to his subject): NOBODY ELSE in the neighborhood has this!

Diane, seriously? You have that many flamingos in your yard? There must have been some kind of sale on flamingos. That would be a lawn mowing nightmare wouldn't it? And yeah, don't I know about those phrases that indication I was in big trouble. Have a great flamingo day.
