Mirtha, Mirtha! Wake up
now! Winter is over - time to come out of hibernation. You have work
to do woman!
Grrr...leave me alone queenie! I need a few more days...er, I mean hours
before I'm human again.
Well you do look a bit grizzly old girl. Here's a nice double latte mocha
cappachino no-cinnamon smoothie to get you going!
(sips gratefully) Ah, that's much better o seedy one. What's the rush
(Hands Mirtha her patented "Mirtha Stuwort" Day Planner). Check
what today is, Miss M.
Oh my! Thanks for getting me motivated this morning. We DO have work to
do! First off let's talk about:
Oh Mirtha?! What would you suggest for the proper gardening attire?
Funny you should ask that, o seedy one. This month I am launching my new
line of Mirtha Stuwort gardening ensembles. Very chic indeed.
Hmm, well what does it consist of? I am curious.
I'll tell you - I just love to talk about it. You know, my dear, that
every gardener worth his (or her salt), may get a trifle dirty while
working in their garden. So, being the practical person that I am, I have
invented a new material called, "M-Tex." The dirt just rolls
right off it.
Debbie to see
how Martha gardens...
Wow Mirtha! Do you realize that this means for you?
Yes - about approximately 50 million dollars. Oh! You're not talking about
money, are you?
Um, no Mirtha, but never mind. I am practical too, so I just wear whatever
is handy. I have even been known to pull weeds in my jammies.
You have weeds in your jammies? I always knew you were a bit strange
Don't go there Mirtha! Just don't go there! Let's change the subject. Did
you know we have one thing in common?
And what might that be? Now it's my turn to be curious.
Well. we each have a mother!
Oh my heavens! Does this mean we're sisters?
no, no! (God forbid!) I mean we each have a different mother. And
since Mother's Day is coming up, how about a lovely gift basket to show
how much we appreciate her?
that does sound lovely! I hope the readers check out our whimisical ODE
