The wishing trips

Edna: Margie, I've seen many an odd sight in my time. I once saw a two-headed cow at the county fair. I even saw you try to dance the lambada once with Stanley Richmond's grandfather. I guess the world is full of oddities.

Margie: Well, I once saw a two-faced sister. How's that? Oh, one thing I saw was an albino squirrel. That was a strange sight. It was sort of odd like that time you turned green after drinking so much hooch.

Edna: Pfft, an albino squirrel isn't so odd. Cousin T would say that's probably just a regular squirrel that had himself a scare.

Now, one thing I've always wanted to see was that giant elephant building they have over there in New Jersey. That must be a sight! What do you suppose would possess someone to build such a thing?

Margie: Edna, I suspect they built it to attract morons who'd pay to look at the ugly thing.

I'd like to see that Corn Palace in South Dakota. I do love my corn. Why do you think they wasted all that corn on a palace? I'd put it in my freezer for hard times.

Edna: I like the idea of a palace made of corn. Maybe they could eat that building when times get tough.

Margie, we should plan a vacation for someplace warm this winter. Your bones aren't getting any younger, wouldn't you like to go to the Florida Everglades? I hear they have one of your old beaux down there. I bet he'd even take you back if you sweet-talked him a bit.

Margie: Edna, this is Sunday and I try to hold my temper on Sunday. You make that difficult.

Why don't you go find all your old beaux?

Whoo-eee, now that's a tall drink of water!

Edna: Margie, I don't think we'd ever be able to travel anywhere together without bloodshed so perhaps we shouldn't even try.

Margie: Edna, that's the most intelligent thing you've ever said!

Girls, girls, you'd think, after a summer break, you'd be all sweetness and light. You can just stay indoors and drink your special tea. I'll bet that will keep you warm all winter.

Margie and Edna said...

Edna: You try being sweetness and light after listening to my sister moan and complain all summer about nothing! It's enough to drive a body to murder. That's a good suggestion about the special tea, though. I'll be taking my special tea to my room this winter and locking myself in, lest Margie find herself in mortal danger.

My nasal cavity hurts after snorting coffee whilst reading about the Corn Palace - you ladies are wicked!

....and we love it!
