Thursday Thirteen Ed. #68

November 23rd, 2006

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Remember to tell your kids on this great American holiday, “It’s not playing fairsies to go to someone else’s home, grab all their stuff, claim you ‘discovered it,’ then force them out of the house and move in. Pilgrims were not playing nice, dig?”

And now, for the Thursday Thirteen!


1. Let us get our ears pierced when we’re nine.

2. Let us stay up late — ten o’clock — every night.

3. Let us go shopping every day after school.

4. Let us watch “Star Wars.”

5. Let us eat as much candy as we want.

6. Let us do no homework.

7. Buy us whatever we want.

8. Let us eat all of our Halloween candy in one day.

9. Buy us a limo and a driver to take us all around.

10. When we grow up you guys have to let us get a mansion, with a big swimming pool in the backyard and a little yellow kitten.

11. Let us live in Minnesota and go to Mall of America every day.

12. No school.

13. Let us have as many American Girl dolls as we want.

    Oh, to be young and think the world is made for you and you alone. I wasn’t a big one with malls and dolls, but I would still go for that mansion with a pool and a kitten and all the Hallowe’en candy I could eat. Cheers!

    Don’t they have number 9? The limo is the family car and the driver is Mum or Dad! I know my sister’s kids think that the limo and driver are anyone and everyone :D

    Great list. Can I be a little kid again.

    All so true!!! We went to the Mall of America recently. Madness! But my daughter would love to go there every day.

    Do you live in the Twin Cities??

    Loved your list….especially the opener about the Pilgrims. My TT this week revolved around Thanksgiving misconceptions. Your comment would fit right in.:)
