Hemingway, what are you doing out there in the kitchen?
Mom said she made mattress soup tonight and I wanted to see which mattress she used.
What on earth are you talking about?
She said she was going to make this soup for supper tonight and I thought she said mattress. I will admit that it sounded really strange.
Is there a box somewhere so we can check it out?
Yes. Help me lift the lid on the trash thing. I think I see it……… Yes! There it is right on top.
What does it say?
It says matzo ball soup mix.
Well, that makes things clear as mud!
Mud isn’t clear.
I know but I heard humans say that. I just can’t get used to the way they talk.
Well, at least now we know it wasn’t a mattress she used. I was afraid she might use one of our mattresses and that wouldn’t be nice. I wonder if she’s going to let us sample some of that soup.
I have no idea what it is and I think I’ll stick to my treats. Why did she make that soup tonight?
She said she was a little under the weather and that would be soothing for her.
Ok……..now I’m even more confused. I’m not even going to try to figure out how Mom got “under the weather”. I didn’t think that was possible.
I’m just as confused as you. Maybe someone will help explain things to us.
