More on the High End Offspring She's Raising

Yes, the family returned to city life at 9 pm on Tuesday! The Matron beat her breast against that sultry city ground!

But last night, as the vacation's evening festivities were well underway, such a scenario (involving one of her older children, you guess) transpired, that she was forced to say this, to Merrick.


"I'm sorry. You have to be 12 years old to smoke a french fry cigarette."

That Matron! Twelve years old before you can see if french fries and pizza crusts are smokable. She's certain she's setting some standards.

Welcome back to Civvie!! Lization, that is.

French fry cigarette?

We just call it the smelly stuff at concerts. If it's actually french fries I fear for their cholesterol level.

It's good to go and better to return.

Seriously. You have to draw the line somewhere. Twelve sounds good to me.

I don't know. 12 is awfully young to start such a nasty habit. Plus, you might want to research the long-term effects of potatoes on the lungs.

As long as they are not smoking mosquitos. Now that's some potent stuff.
