If you have children and you get the Disney channel, there's a good chance you've seen their cartoon, Phineas and Ferb. If you don't, well, you're going to have to use your imagination on this one.
This is a picture of the family:
The teenage girl is Candace. The 1950's stylin' gal is the mom. The photo is unimportant, really, but I always like a visual image. And it brightens up the blog.
So anyway, there was a new episode last week I happened to catch with my kids that had me rolling on the floor laughing, and screaming: I have to find that to blog!! Sadly, these things aren't all YouTubed yet, so you're going to have to deal with just the written dialog.
The scene was Candace sitting in the living room perusing a stack of books her mom had just bought for her. She shuffles through them one by one and the conversation goes something like this:
Candace: "boring, lame, predictable, overdone, cliche..."
(Enter Mom): "you haven't read any of those! how can you judge them by the covers?"
Candace: "gee mom, I don't know. What made you pick these out in the bookstore to buy?"
The moral of the dialog? Well... I think I'll let you figure that one out on your own.
