Questions And Comments From The Nuthouse

I receive lots of questions. I suppose because I'm a questionable person? I've decided to exact a little damage and answer some of your questions.*

Why did you start blogging?
Because there wasn't quite enough terror in this world.** Actually, my mama and hubby were the instigators. Blame them.

How old are you?
Young enough to still think cuss words are funny and old enough to grumble about disrespectful little punks. 

Will you adopt again?
More to come on this topic in the coming months. For now, suffice to say that we will stop when God tells us to stop. So, stay tuned. 

You're so fun to read! I wish you'd write a book!!
Thank you! I did, but it's not a funny book and it's unpublished. And unless you're a kid you're not my intended audience, and if you are a kid you're not old enough to have an e-mail account, so stop it and go clean your room!


What's your go-to dinner for your larger than average family?
Pfft. I love experimenting in the kitchen, but my go-tos are quesadillas or spaghetti or popcorn, apple slices and cheese. I just lost all respect from you didn't I? 

Lastly, is quite possibly THE SWEETEST comment I have ever received from a reader, which is found on this post:

Hi Cynthia,

i'm a friend of your friend the puppetmaker. she shared this post with me. i thanked her and now i'll thank you, too. this was beautifully written and totally made me think about my thought process. and sophia is adorable and very obviously loved (which is most important). 

a chocolate mama with a chocolate daughter go through a lot of experimentation too. my mom tried more things on my hair than i can even remember. we learn together. :)

You, my dear, blessed my socks clean off my feet.*** 

Traumatizing My Readers One Post At A Time,

*I'll apologize in advance for bursting your image of me.
**And I think it's actually a sign of the Apocalypse...?
***And, yes, I have a puppetry friend who is the best of the best in the puppet biz. 


  1. Popcorn, apples, & cheese for supper? How very Burkitt of you! :-) It's one of my favorites too…but hubby thinks I'm nuts. :-)

  2. Love all of it, and you! I wish we lived closer to connect first hand! Can't wait to see what God has up next for you all!

  3. I'm famous!!! I mean...yeah. Hi. So...Spaghetti, huh?

  4. Popcorn,apples,cheese and add a jar of home canned pickles. We do it once a week around here. Love reading all your offerings.

  5. Hey, starting the Apocalypse, huh? I think I'll grab some popcorn and apples and watch the show. ;-)

    Love your blog! So delighted that you accepted the nudges.

  6. So glad to hear apples and cheese and popcorn are an acceptable dinner. Whew! I feel better knowing if the Pope ever visits I can whip this up for him.


Please comment, but play nice.
