Adventures of The Pickleheads
One morning a long time ago when the kids were little,
Mom woke up to the sound of laughing and giggling coming from the kitchen.
Later, the day seemed pretty normal. Mom got up and
did the chores. For lunch, she decided to make her favorite -- tuna sandwich.
After carefully mixing the tuna and making the sandwich, she opened the
fridge and got out the new big jar of kosher pickles she got at Price Club.
"Mmmmmmmm, great," she hummed as she plopped down a
big pickle on the plate, then added some potato chips and poured a big
glass of fresh lemonade.
The next day, she awoke to the same sound of laughing
and giggling coming from the kitchen. Again she yelled at the kids, again
they said everything was ok, and again she trailed off to sleep. Later,
she had her favorite lunch again, and putting away the pickle jar, she
noticed a few more pickles were gone.
Well, this routine went on for several days. And by
the end of a week, she noticed that a few pickles were looking lonely swimming
in that great big jar.
Finally, one day, she woke up early, fully rested. Groggily wiping the sleep from her eyes and stumbling into the kitchen, she couldn't believe what she saw. The kitchen counter looked like a buffet -- peanut butter, jelly, Oreo’s, green olives, and her prize jar of pickles.
"Hey, what's going on in here?" she screamed.
"Wait a minute," said Mom, you mean this is why you've been skipping lunch all week, and this is why you've been getting sick. You kids have been eating pickles and olives for breakfast every day!!!!!!!"
Well, caught red handed, the tears began to well up
in their little eyes as they began to cry.
Well, that did it. A Mom can only take so much of her
And, you know, so far, she's right, they haven't run
out of pickles.
And from then on, the kids were sometimes affectionately
known as...The Pickleheads!
