Ask Margie and Edna


This question is for Miss Edna. When you was in Paris France did you see any outstandin' art work in the louver?

Edna: That's a fine question, and I could see why you'd ask that, considering that it's well known that I spent some time in Paris, France as a young girl. France is known for its many works of art, especially in that fancy art museum there in Paris. I should point out that when I was there, I had my hands full with other matters, there was no time for swanning around like a tourist in art museums. Let me put it this way: I went for vacation, as was the fashion for young American ladies at that time. But once there I actively resisted leaving the French in the state they were in, if you catch my meaning. Besides, there wasn't anything to see in the Louvre then; the Frenchies had the good sense to hide their artwork away to keep it safe from this nasty little man that Europe was dealing with at the time.

That's all I can say about that, I'm sure you understand that anything else I could say about my time there is considered classified information.

And here is one for Miss Margie: Do you think people are gee-netically predisposed to lie?

Margie: I am proud to say that I have studied this question in depth for many years. I will tell you what I have discovered.

There are liars, lying liars, and people who just wouldn't know the truth if it bit them. Liars only lie when it's convenient so that's not genetic.

Lying liars are people like Edna who lie because they are sad creatures with no one paying them any attention.

It's only genetic if you don't really know what the truth is. Like delusions.

Thank you for asking.

Edna: Amy dear, don't you fret. That's just something our lawyers make us put there. Of course we're real! ;D

What exactly is swanning anyway? Is that when you glide gracefully in fer a landin' along the promenade?

Old Europe sure is full of dark mystery. That is why I have no desire to glide over there m'self.

Delusions of grandma!

Cousin T,

Swanning is what Edna does in front of a mirror but they always shatter.

I'm going to start rationing your Special Tea.
