Great News Dear Readers!! The Vegetable Lady has agreed to answer our most pressing vegetable questions! Are we lucky or what?
Vegetable Lady, for our first question we would like to know if cauliflower is really a flower?
Cauliflower? Golly Jeepers I love Cauliflower! I remember one time when I was twelve right before Daddy was lost at sea, we were eating cauliflower and Daddy said, “pass the cauliflower and if I never see you again I love you.” But, Golly Jeepers! Mother and I could never figure out if Daddy was talking to the cauliflower or to us.
Uh . . . let’s move on. What are your feelings about celery?
Celery? Golly Jeepers I love celery! I remember one time right after mother and I joined the circus, we had just sat down to eat a big platter of Celery when Mother announced that she was going to get a “change” and I said you mean a sex change Mother? And Mother said no she meant a “species change” and right after that she started performing with the circus elephants, and Golly Jeepers she sure wasn’t very good. But the celery was delicious!
Hmm . . . Let’s move onto cucumbers. How do you feel about cucumbers, Vegetable Lady?
How do I feel about cucumbers? Golly Jeepers I love cucumbers! Even if father did get lost at sea sailing on a cucumber raft he made from our bumper cucumber crop! Golly Jeepers it floated and everything! Father was planning to be the first man to sail around the world on a cucumber raft but about 400 yards from shore, he got a terrible hankering for cucumbers and he hasn’t been seen since. Golly Jeepers Father loved cucumbers!
So you’re telling us your mother is now an elephant and your father went sailing on a cucumber raft and got lost at sea? This is an awful lot for us to swallow, Vegetable Lady.
Golly Jeepers it does sound a little strange when you put it that way! I know it’s hard to swallow but it’s all true. Speaking of swallowing, my sister once got hungry and ate an entire bushel of tomatoes that Mother was planning to serve when Father got back from circumventing the world on his cucumber raft. But Mother wasn’t mad because she said Father was probably dead anyway. Golly Jeepers Sis loved those tomatoes!
Well thank you for coming by the blog today Vegetable Lady.
Golly Jeepers, you’re welcome!
Until next time . . . I love you
