Do you ever wonder?

Well, I do. About me.

For some reason, the song Mairzy Doats came into my head just a few minutes ago. I decided to look for it online ... and then I realized what I was hearing as I slowed down the words.

Mares Eat Oats and Does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy. Kids will eat ivy too, wouldn't you?


It was written because of an English nursery rhyme - Cowzy tweet and sowzy tweet and liddle sharksy doisters.

Kind of reminds me of a story about a kid who came home from Sunday School telling his mom about a bear named "Gladly" who couldn't see very well. Yup, "Gladly, the Cross I'd Bear."

Of course Max knew all along about that crazy song. I often wonder what joy mom took in withholding pertinent information from her kids.
