Happenings

Well, I didn't have to disect anything yesterday. YAY! :) The friend that does the experiments with us got the flu. :(

We played frisbee today and had a very fun time. I wasn't going to play, but then I changed my mind. I'm glad I did. :)

Last night we decided we wanted something to do, so we went to Blockbuster to get a movie. Jo walked up to the counter and asked the guy if he could tell us where we'd find 'Penelope'. The guy looked at us funny and asked "Is that with an E or an I?". Not sure where the guy would have put the I, Jo said "Umm...an E." The guy typed it into his computer and said "We don't carry that movie." Jo was confused. We knew they had it, we just didn't know where it was. "Oh.". A second guy had just finished taking care of a customer, so the first guy asked him "How do you spell 'Penelope'?". The second guy got the funniest look on his face and said "P E N E L O P E" slowly and then, even slower, said "Pe-ne-lo-pe". I was trying so hard not to laugh as the first guy typed it into the computer. All of a sudden he went "Oh, we do have it!". :) He was kind enough to run get it for us and we enjoyed our movie night. Although the moviemakers should have thought of a way to do it without the witch. :( But, witches and some swearing aside, it was pretty good. And boy did that writer have a good sense of humor. :)

I'll leave you with a picture. :)

Your story is so funny! I have to say.. I've had some trouble myself, with that name Penelope. I used to think it was pronounced...Pen-e-LOPE. (as in, rhyming with 'cantaloupe') *lol* I'm glad I finally figured out how to read it correctly!

So was PE-NE-LO-PE good? That was a hilarious story...you did get a chuckle out of me...although I have heard that boys are better at math than spelling. :) Have a great week! Love You!!
