Still feeling silly? Yes, but also a little under the weather too. Ugh, the challenges of having a kiddie get sick, then they get you sick. Boo hoo. don't ask. An Ostrich pair of scissors dancing with Cheech (or is it Chong?) the mop. The instructions read; Draw these four things; your made bed, a mop or a broom, a pair of scissors and a washer machine.
