Shorttakes

It's June 16th...do you know where your FUDGE is??

Today is another one of those days with less than awesome choices, but you know we're good at making those obscure connections.  Plus, hello, fudge!  So, where ARE we going with this?  W're not going chocolate, or ice cream or treats...  I tried to make it about "fudging" your mistakes, but I couldn't get there... AND THEN, I went to the clip art (at least I could find images...) & it hit me:

You can't have just 1 bite! 

Or, if you can, I don't understand you.

 

So on June 16th, you're getting

a second bite.

 

When we had "Repeat Day", I thought it would be a flop.  Turns out, y'all loved getting to find that "one thing" you forgot.  So, we're doing it again.  You get a 2nd bite of the treats SINCE REPEAT DAY!  That's right, everything featured since June 4th is yours for the taking AGAIN. 

Now, don't worry if you can't find your newsletters because I'll recap it here for ya.  As always, if you find something that fits a category, according to you, as long as you can make that connection you win!  And you see how we can tie the strangest things together, so tell us a story, entertain us!!  We might even steal your idea for another time!

 

Let's go!
