Remember that old series “Goofus and Gallant” that was in that kid’s magazine, Highlights? I was thinking about it this morning and how much Henry and I are like the Goofus and Gallant of the 21st century. So I’m reinventing the series.

Here’s the first one:

goofusgallant

My hair is actually darker than that. But everything else is TRUTHFUL, right down to Henry’s empty box of hemorrhoid paste. No wait, I lied! Our garbage can is blue.

[A Note: The last time I read Highlights was the summer of 2004. I had taken my grandma to her doctor appointment and as we sat in the waiting room together, I took great pleasure in reacquainting myself the aforementioned Goofus and Gallant, and also the Timbertoes, whom I loved! Guys, they were a family made from TIMBER. After getting completely cocky from finding all the objects in the Hidden Picture thing, I began reading a page of riddles and jokes. There was one joke that I totally did NOT get (and can’t remember, so don’t even!), and had to actually ask my grandma to explain it to me.

One of the many millions of times she’s mumbled, “Oh honestly, Erin.”]

  1. That is pretty damn funny. I found your blog via Blog Frog. So far I really like what I see – you’re pretty hilarious and nice work!

  2. Your humor and child like attitude is refreshing. Please I said “child like” not “childish”. As we get older we sometimes forget to see the fun and beauty in life.

  3. I am Tolhursting so bad over here! Please make MOAR.

  4. I used to love the Timbertoes! ha haaa Sorry about the cascade of comments (<<– I'm trademarking that phrase so hands off!), but I'm catching up on mah reading.
