HEYYYYYYO…..It’s me, Surly Amy filling in for Mindy!
I have been the understudy for the Sundaylies FOR SO LONG. Quietly waiting in the wings, practicing my lines, perfecting my pirouettes. I feel like this is finally my chance to SHINE! And shine I shall because not only is today Sunday, it’s the best SUN day of the year! It’s Eater Sunday! The day when children and adults hide chocolate eggs EVERYWHERE and you get to find them and eat them- no matter where they are! Such a fun-gooey-chocolately time. The winner of Eater Day (whoever eats the most chocolate eggs of course) gets to wear the coveted Bunny Ear Hat! I love Eater Day so much I even baked a cake. Celebrate my friends, for life is short. You never know if THIS Eater day, is your last.
Oh hey it’s also the Sunday funny time! Did you see my text? Did you get my email? Have you seen Treelobsters lately? They live in trees and are excellent: Have a look but don’t get pinched!
