Poor Farmer H. He's the Rodney Dangerfield of the Mansion. He gets no respect.
Sometimes, though, he brings it on himself. The #1 son took a long-sleeved St. Louis Blues t-shirt out of his birthday bag tonight. "I really like this shirt!"
"Too bad they won't let you wear those shirts to school."
"You can't wear it."
"Yes we can."
"Oh. Yeah. It's cigarettes you can't wear."
"The Blues are not cigarettes."
"I know that."
Later, Farmer H asked to look at #1's birthday card. "Made from substantially grown forests. Hmm. See? It's good for the environment."
"Let me see that. It says 'made from sustainably grown forests,' not substantially grown."
"Yeah. I wondered what that meant."
Sigh. I also double-checked on the mystery Dollar Rolls. Auction bread. I suppose the next course of auction edibles will be romaine lettuce. He might as well save his coins. I draw the line at auction food.
