Recession Mama











{May 11, 2009}   Recession I am

By: Heather

I have to be honest mamas and papas. I’m sick of this recession. I’m ready for it to be over. A distant memory. Until then, I thought I would try to “punch it in the face” with a little grade school humor.

“Are you nuts?” you say.

“Certifiably!” I confirm.

That’s what makes me a true Recession Mama. We try to laugh a little when life throws us some serious problems. For some reason, Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss comes to mind. I”m not sure why. I can’t explain my nuttiness sometimes.

The Green Eggs and Ham plot, in a nutshell, is as follows: Sam-I-am is trying to get some guy (fluffy creature) to eat Green Eggs and Ham. He doesn’t want them, but he can’t get rid of this pesky Sam.

“Do you like Green eggs and ham?

I do not like them, Sam-I-am. “

The dude (creature) is REALLY annoyed. But Sam-I-am is trying his best to get him to eat Green Eggs and Ham ANYWHERE and with ANYTHING.

“Would you eat them in a box?

Would you eat them with a fox?”

That’s how I feel about the recession. We’re forced to digest this ugly little mess on a daily basis. So why not gobble it down with a side of chuckles.

Anyway, here is my “recession rendition” of the Dr. Seuss story.

Bon Appétit!
