Georges Le Soq and me, we're like THIS

Georges has been staying with us for awhile. This morning he is like
"mon ami, we go to zee store, no?"
"why yes Georges, grocery day!" and Georges is like
"I come with. Mebbe we get more tater tots, mebbe we do more, how you say, kitchen experiments, tonight?"
and so we go to the store and he is like
"mon ami, zee tortillas, zee tomatoes vis hot peppers, zee enchilada sauce, zee TATER TOTS. Zeese tings we must have. We make magic vis dem" and he uses my credit card and we get 'er done....

Yesterday, of course, Georges was super excited because I had painted mugs to look LIKE HIM.
Georges is like
"mon ami, dese mugs, dey, how you say, ROCK IT"

I'm picturing seeing you pushing a cart with Georges in the toddler seat through a grocery store, and LMAO! What exactly do you say to the people who ask you if you escaped from some kind of home?

Seriously the title under your main blog photo should read...

"What's bigger than a beagle, yet smaller than a buffalo." - SPIKE!

You really SHOULD make a point of pushing Georges on the cart through the supermarket.
Supermarkets are too boring. They need spice.
BTW: I agree. Those sock monkey mugs are terrific!

Yes...walk thru Ithaca Wegmans with a sock monkey. Nobody will notice anything unusual.
