A Discussion with Mama

by Marinka on August 29, 2012

Something very strange happened this morning, Mama tells me when she comes over Sunday afternoon. Do you want to hear?

Do I want to hear? Of course I want to hear! Stories from Mama is why hearing was invented!

Yes, please, I say.

Okay. Papa and I go for walk early this morning. Early walk in park, while lazy people are sleeping.
It’s six in the morning. And we see a guy, very skinny, in a van. And van has cardboard sign in window that says MISSING SENIOR. He parks the van, and he the runs into woods.

What woods? I thought you said you were in the park?

Park and woods are the same thing. Continue to the listen. He runs into the parkwoods and then dashes out. And then drives another few meters and dashes in again and out.


More than the weird. Under suspicion.

Why under suspicion?

Because when Sly (the cat) was missing, I drove around and asked “did you see Sly the cat?” when I saw people. I didn’t put sign in window and do that nonsense.

So what do you think was going on with this guy?

Only one explanation.

Which is?

This guy killed the senior citizen and disposed of body. But not to look like the suspicious, he decide to make it look like he was searching for missing senior. But see? He made him missing by murder.

Mama, this sounds a little nuts. Did you discuss this with Papa?

Of course! It was his idea and it makes a lot of sense to me. He is murderer.


No, not Papa. You always have to make stupid joke. But Papa said that if he is ever missing, we are not to search for him.


Wants to be left alone in peace. Who knows? I told him that I will search for him.

OMG, we should definitely search for Papa! Where is he now?

Now he is buying watermelon. He will bring it soon.

The “very skinny” description well help crack this case wide open.

Glad you always have to make stupid joke.


Alexandra August 29, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Oh yes.

And this post proves it.

The listening was invented for the mama stories.


How would anyone ever come through mama and awesome dude and not be one of the sharpest humor writers out there.

Lots of favorite lines here but I think this one made me the happiest:

“Early walk in park, while lazy people are sleeping.”

Slapped my thigh over that one.

“But not to look like the suspicious.” My new favorite saying.

These stories are why seeing was invented! Thanks to you and Mama! And Papa for the watermelon.

Maybe the guy’s cat’s name was Senior and he was too shy to ask people if they had seen Senior the cat. Poor kitty was lost in the parkwoods.

And to think that it was all Papa’s idea,


Mom of A and a August 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

We love that you always have to make the stupid joke!!

“Waiting for Watermelon” = Bestseller.


joeinvegas August 30, 2012 at 12:59 pm

But the important question: was the watermelon good?


awesome dude August 30, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Actually I bought two watermelons. Both were good and my grandchildren may have a watermelon habit now.

The skinny guy looked nerdy indeed and acted strangely.


Lady Jennie August 31, 2012 at 12:09 pm

I love LOVE when your mama and papa talk. You’d better continue to the listen.

Yours is the only blog where I am afraid I will miss out on extra doses of humor by not reading the comments. Marinka, you’re the best. Along with Mama and Papa
