I’m sleep deprived and have a bad attitude today. Some little imp decided he had to have a party in the middle of the night and attempt to bring the noisiest, most annoying toys we have to bed with him at 4am. Not only that, but we also had to have Thomas on demand while we partied. I’m thinking only 50% of us enjoyed that party. That’s one out of two of us, for those of you not good at math.
Anyways, I’m at least happy that the weather has cleared enough for ping pong balls little boys to have the opportunity to get OUTSIDE. It has rained for two straight weeks, y’all. Every. Single. Day. That’s, like, fourteen days. Two weeks. That’s about thirteen days past my insanity threshold.
In honor of the fact that I listened to chirping, noisy freaking birds from four-thirty to the present (yes, they started that early. Little sh*ts.), I’ve prepared you this quiz. Enjoy. And have a weekend. Notice I didn’t say have a good weekend. Or Happy Mother’s Day. Trust me, you don’t want me on that soapbox now, I’m in a ranting mood.
