This week, there's been nothing special to write about and then on my morning perusal of the bloggerverse, I saw that I had been tagged by Christy P-maker of cute dresses and all around cool person. So, I'll tell you a quick story about the young man (Jared) before getting to the ABCs of moi. A few days ago, Jared and I were on our way home from Alona's and we were talking about Alona's dogs being preggers and discussing that we needed to get Miss Sally fixed so there wouldn't be any puppies at our house. My parents asked who the daddy doggie was, and he informed us in a very grown up and mature voice, "that Beenie, he's just a maniac about THAT sort of thing". All of the adults in the car quickly looked out of the windows and tried really hard not to laugh. This is also the child that told me the story of the Headless Horseman using the words "a.k.a Bram Bones" and told me yesterday he wanted to be "a fixer" so that when other people's stuff broke, he could get lots of money for fixing it. He's a joy!
