we've got somethin' for what ails ya



Let's shake up the summer doldrums, people! Get your asses in gear! I know it's hot, you're feeling blasé, college hoops is still four months away, but life's meant for livin', dontchya see?

Lucy and I have been talking about an idea called "Ask a 4-Year-Old" where you, the blog audience, asks questions... and we answer them for you on video. You can post the questions in the comment section, or you can email me. Any topic is fine, as long as there are no swear words (I know, the hypocrisy is mind-bending) and I assume all of you will keep it *ahem* APPROPRIATE. So what's on your mind?

Lucy, my beloved beagle died in May. Where do you think he is now? What is he doing?

I am hoping to have a baby some day soon, and I'd like that baby to grow up to be as sweet and smart as Lucy. What should I do to make that happen?

Dearest Lucy, if you were to get in trouble, what should your punishment be? What works?

Dear Lucy,

what is the one thing that bugs you most when adults talk to you?

Here are mine, based on our recent visit:

1) Lucy, what is your favorite thing about Lily?

2) Lucy, tell me about ballet class.

3) Lucy, why do you pick carrots at random from the raised bed?

Dear Lucy,

Who's your favorite godparent?


Okay, real question: Can you make up a song off the top of your head and, if so, will you sing it to me?

LFMD, I'm so sorry about your beagle. We just lost BOTH our labs and are heartbroken. It's really hard for an almost 3 year old to deal with.

Ok, question for Lucy. If you're not afraid of thunder, how do you convince a little kid it's not scary??

Lucy, are you going to follow Tyler Hansbrough in the NBA? Are you a Pacers fan now?

Lucy, can you say Me'Shell Ndegocello?

Who do you think is cooler - Suzi Quatro or Tina Weymouth?

Dear Lucy,

I'm thinking about a career change -- what's the absolute coolest job in the world?

Posted by: LFMD at July 15, 2009 2:53 PM

Thanks, Lee. So sorry to hear about your labs. It is ridiculous how much I still miss Jack. . . hang in there. . .

Thanks for snapping me out of the doldrums. I am looking forward to hearing from Lucy!
