"Don't go to your neighbor's house too often; too much of
you will make him hate you"
It's really not that they are coming here too often it's that they just won't leave period. They don't say a whole lot but boy, they leave a mess in their wake. And when the kids are questioned as to who is the culprit for infractions it always comes down to these two: Ida Know and her brother, Not Me.
"Who drank all the juice and didn't make more?" - Ida Know
"Who emptied the toilet paper roll and didn't put any more on?" - Not Me
"Which one of you didn't put away the blankets and left the Dvd's scattered in the tv room downstairs?" - Ida Know
"Who spilt on the counter and didn't wipe it up?" - Not Me
"Who's turn is it to do dishes?" - Ida Know
"Who left dirty dishes in the living room over night?" - Not Me
See what I mean? These two gremlin siblings are wreaking havoc in my home and I am growing weary of their visit. So I'm putting out the call. If these two belong to you, they have outstayed their welcome and would you please come and collect them toots sweet. Or maybe I need to email Mr. Keane to come and get them because they did stay at his place first.
Ida Know and Not Me are characters in my all time favorite syndicated comic strip "the Family Circus" by Bill Keane
