Toddlers and preschoolers just don’t get sarcasm.
It’s a shame, because, really, I can be pretty sarcastic.
That’s why I couldn’t resist using this prompt from Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop as a jump start to this week’s Thankful Thursday post… Who do you have to thank? Following Jimmy Fallon’s famous thank you note writing style, write or vlog a list of 10 thank you cards you’d like to write this week.
Thank you, whoever decided there should be 2 different 1812 addresses on the same road in Peoria… You made finding our hotel much more interesting as we drove back and forth 4 times before stopping and calling the hotel and finding we needed 1812 on the north side of the street and we were at 1812 on the south side.
Thank you, public library, for changing your website so now I have to click on 3 different links, each opening a new page, before I can even get to my account to renew a book. Being able to waste that extra little bit of time in the attempt to not have late fees? Priceless.
Thank you, ex-boss, for the comforting words, “Just because you worked here before, doesn’t mean we will hire you back…” when I spoke to you about trying to decide whether to keep working or to become a SAHM. (By the way, just because I worked there before, doesn’t mean I’ll want to work there again.)
Thank you, McDonald’s, for giving super huge sized cups of sweet tea and pop instead of just the normal sized cups — doctors everywhere will be seeing more cases of obesity and diabetes. Those apples in the kids’ meals? Totally make up for it.
Thank you, Fluffybutt, for the constant licking and snorting you do at night. It’s like having my own “heavy breathing phone call” to wake me up right there in my room. All. Night. Long.
Thank you, political parties, for calling my house at least twice a day. The excitement I feel when the phone rings, thinking someone I know has called to chat, is almost worth the disappointment I have when I realize it is just another electronic message.
Thank you dearest members of my family who feel compelled to wear not just one outfit during the day, but who need to change clothes several times. The extra laundry insures that I’ll be doing another round of wash much sooner than I would otherwise, and you all know how much I LOVE laundry!
Yes, the prompt asks for 10 and I only wrote 8… That’s because I want to hear what you’ve got! Leave a comment with your own sarcastic twist to a thank you card. Or link up your own in the linky! (Be sure to link back to There’s Just One Mommy, please!)
