Doodle and I were spending some time together yesterday afternoon, getting ready to read some books together. "How did you get so handsome?" I asked him.

"Well, it's because Mimi combed my hair," he replied matter-of-factly.

This cracked me up because 1) he hasn't seen Mimi in almost a month; 2) it has been several months since she combed his hair; and 3), because I think his hair looks great almost all the time (he doesn't get the morning spikes like Carman), I seldom comb his hair at all. He must think that the effects of the hair combing from Mimi has lasted a really long time. Thanks, Mimi! - milkmaid
