Shine on me sunshine
Skip with me world
It's a jumpity-do-dah day!
As such, according to the FIFFA Bylaws, I simply had to enter the CASology challenge before it closed because the cue card word this week is JUMP!
I had a few ideas in mind, but then two things happened. The first is that I happily won a challenge at Paper Smooches (PS) and my winning stamps arrived which changed my ideas. (I was hoping to play in the Anything Goes challenge, but I missed it by a day.) You should check out PS; there are great prizes, but more importantly, Kim's stamps are great to work with.
The second thing that happened was, well, it's sort of a long story and I won't be offended if you skip it. Or maybe I should say: jump past it.
My story brings me back to the introduction. FIFFA is a members-only association and to be a member you have to be recommended, vetted, and withstand a very rigorous initiation ceremony involving ice cubes. You are also sworn to secrecy for as long as you live about everything remotely related to what goes on at the meetings or what you learn about frogs.
So. Okay, fine. Back in 1992, Bennett Chambers was recommended for membership by Jeanette from the bank. A lot of us were opposed to Bennett's membership because Eleanor could see from her attic window that Bennett would enjoy an adult beverage more often than is considered normal in a police society. So we could foresee, don't you see, that loose lips sink ships. But we were overruled and Bennett became a member.
Sure enough, fast forward to last Tuesday week, around 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon (you pick), Bennett got an unexpected invitation to sub for a bowling tournament at Leonard's Lanes. Bennett was so honored to be asked, he forgot he was two sheets to the wind. This became readily apparent to everyone, however, when he laid down his first ball and slipped. When he came to a full stop halfway down the lane, he was sprawled over Kim Bo, and everyone was either horrified or started laughing hysterically. Lucille had to dash off knock-kneed to the ladies loo.
Trying to save face when he was helped to his feet, Bennett brushed off his trousers and sputtered, "Yeah, oh yeah?! Well ... well ... frogs drink coffee and THAT'S why they are able to jump so high!"
While FIFFA sorts out how they are going to recover from this monumental breach of confidentiality (thank God I'm not still president!), I hung up the phone and decided to make the most of the situation by redesigning my card to allow me to also play in the Addicted to CAS challenge where the code word is COFFEE.
Turns out since my focus pocus is m'frog, I can also play in the Simply Create Too, which is St. Patrick's Day [or use GREEN].
