Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy’s New Toy

“What’s that, Little One?”

“My new toy. It’s called a green stick.”

“What’s it taste like?”

“Humm. Let me see.”

“Well?”

“I think it tastes like a margarita.”

“Wait a minute. You have never had a margarita.”

“I know, but I’m thinking a margarita would taste like my green stick.”

“I wonder if the big shots at the toy company know that?”

“Well, if they don’t, then someone ought to tell them.”

“Ya hear that you big shots at the toy company. Marketing pro Twiggy says your green stick should be sold as a margarita flavor.”

“Would get a lot of new users, I’ll bet.”

“I think I’ll stick with the bacon flavors.”

“Of course you will. When the next big thing comes along, you’ll still be taking a nap.”

“Hmmm. Now that you mention it. Hey mom. Open the door, please.”

      1. I had a sense of it just from the still photos. Did Lucy get a new toy as well?

      2. Lucy doesn’t play with toys too often. She likes to watch Twiggy play. She does pretend to take the toy away but never does. Short answer – No

  8. I don’t know which sounds better… a margarita or a nap. Given this margarita is plastic, I guess I’d go with the nap. Fun post, John. Give the girls ear scratches from me!

    These two always brighten the day! BTW, your yard looks lovely. Our temps have dipped mightily (currently 15 degrees), and with the chill, the vegetation is laced with ice (at best). I think it might be a long winter. ❄⛄❄

  19. Monkey has one of these, only it’s red. Probably takes like a Bloody Mary, ha! But seriously, it’s been a good investment — thus far, he hasn’t been able to destroy it like he has some of his other toys … and he seems to like it. Too bad we don’t live closer to you — I can envision him and Twiggy having sword fights with those sticks!

    1. Hahahaha. Battle of the sticks. Would be fun to watch. Of course they probably would trade and not have a sword fight at all,

  24. Looks like a good toy and Twiggy looks pleased as punch to have it. Dot used to play with toys but has lost interest and Lia doesn’t have a clue what to do with them. So we have a toy box full of toys that are collecting dust!

  30. Now that’s what I call a green stick!
    Was it bought for Twiggy? Or, does she take over all toys. She seems to be the one playing with toys when I come visit.

    Bacon flavour? You can’t make bacon flavour sticks!
    Maybe a bacon flavour slipper.

    1. It was bought for Twiggy. She loves big dog toys. Twiggy is the one who plays with toys. Lucy doesn’t much care for them anymore. A bacon flavor slipper would be terrific. Thanks for the comments, Resa.
