"If only...


...there was a place that a man could go, and eat muffins for all of eternity."

"Those muffins are the reason I married your mother!!!"

"I am the muffin king!!!"

--Actual quotes from a children's television show.

The hubs and I were giggling like little kids througout the ENTIRE episode. The general premise of this particular episode? The father, trying any way he could to get the mother's muffins. The kids were even trying to PROTECT mom's muffins from dad.

What a metaphor. Man's quest for muffins, and the many roadblocks he encounters... LOL!

Sorry I've been MIA. We're hosting an engagement party for BIL and his fiancee tonight. I've been busting ass cleaning house and yard for it. Almost done, though!! Can I just say, though? I HATE CLEANING BATHROOMS!!!

Ok. I feel better now! LOL! The minute these kids walk out the door tonight (they are spending the night at grandma and grandpa's... WAHOO!), I am planning on getting totally blotto! Wish me loads of drunken fun! LOL! Ooh. Maybe drunken sex??? YEAH, BABY!

Have a wonderful Saturday night, my friends!

XOXO,
Daisy

Drunken fun, drunken sex... sounds like you might have to clean a bathroom again.

Oooo, the symbolism is even more sinister. The children are trying to thwart their father's desire. Shades of Oedipal conflict and, worse, the castration of Saturn by his son Zeus. By depriving the father of the mother's "muffins" the children are, in effect, castrating the father by thwarting his libido. Gosh, I don't think I can look at breakfast the same way again.
