Comments: I'll Take the Word that Begins with QU for... Free

Of course I'm familiar with black eyed peas. And okra, too. That's what I had for dinner tonight, black eyed peas, fried okra and corn bread. Do they dance to fried okra too?

You had all that mess with that ecoli burger? That's a lot of food...

I had never heard of the Black Eyed Peas until last week. Some chick named Fergie sings in it. I thought that Prince's ex wife was in a band until one of the kids correcte me.

The thing on Oprah was the world record for the largest Flash Mob. Oprah didn't even know the producers had planned it. I'd agree with Mr. T, feeling stupid doing the dance. But he might get a kick out of the idea of a "flash mob" if he looked into it. There are some pretty funny stories out there.

Every parent has to get called to the principal's office at least once, Bou :) I'm sure when you do, there will be a good story that comes out of it!

The day that was on Oprah we were eating at a local restaurant with my family. Everyone was trying to guess what show and who was singing. I whispered in my 13-year-old niece's ear, "Is that the Black Eyed Peas?" She nodded yes. Yeah. I'm still cool.

*eye roll*

Sissy- Oh we looked it up. I was like, "what in the heck is a flash mob?" The boys kind of laughed...

Peggy- Oh my dear math-geek friend, you make assumptions that are not true! I have been to the principal's office more than you could ever imagine! I have three boys... we got to the point last year where when I saw the school phone number come up on my cell phone, I'd break out into a cold sweat. Sometimes I'd have to let it go to voicemail while I collected myself before I made the call back.

Jerry- I am not cool. But, honestly, the boys think it's kind of funny. They're more like, "Oh. It's Mom." Ringo didn't even blink when I asked if Fergie was one of the Princesses from England.
