phoebe, boo boo the mouse, me and my wife, mushroom burger on the grille

It’s Me, You and Surprise BBQ with Boo Boo

Boo Boo liked his privacy

when he chewed

on

his

nuts.

imagine that.

he grew old

and we didn’t

know where

he went.

Until, one

day we

followed

a trail

of peanuts.

and, there was

Boo Boo with a smile

from ear to ear.

he wore a chef hat

deciding

to BBQ my vegetarian

favorite between two

buns…

a Portobello mushroom

burger

with sautéed onions

(my wife gets

a real burger.)

I was going to help

him

flip the mushroom

over, but he looked

able to handle the

hamburger flipper

just fine.

I knew he wanted

to do everything

himself

because it was all for me.

It was my birthday surprise

dinner.

he’s been working

out lately.

I didn’t know

a grey mouse

could grow

arms that big.

I was so wrong.

I hoped he

wouldn’t ask me

to arm wrestle.

lucky for me,

he

did not.

I asked him

if he’d mind throwing

another

mushroom

on the grill

for Phoebe.

Oh, she’s

the one

with a death

wish

sitting on

the railroad

tracks.

she’s a lot of

fun, even

though she

doesn’t

smile

much.

By the way,

Boo Boo

loves

Phoebe.

Why?

he knows she

understands

him.

she may look

stone cold,

but she’s

all heart.

my grand-niece

decided

to come into

town

and drop by.

It’s always

nice to see

someone

so different.

kind of like

that girl

in Beetlejuice.

my kind

of person.

she’s a

vegetarian,

too.
