Siily Sunday: Imitation

Silly Sunday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Silly Sunday is the place to come for weekly laughs.  The rules are simple, just have fun.

This is a great opportunity to get to know other bloggers and have a laugh or two in the process.

Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

Quite often when i am cleaning other people's homes, i see designs i would enjoy having in my own home, or things i absolutely would not want if i ever remodeled this place.  (No stainless steel appliances or glass cooktops, they are too hard to clean!)

Boudreaux an' Thibodeaux be such good friend dat when Boudreaux done remodel his shotgun house, Thibodeaux see it an' decide he want to do his own jes' de same.  So he ax Boudreaux, an' Boudreaux tell him jes' how much material to got, an' den he done got it an' remodel.

After Thibodeaux be done, Boudreaux come over to see, an' Thibodeaux say, "Mais, you can see my house be de same size as yours, an' I done got de material jes' like you say, an' now my house look real good like yours, but I gots me a whole box o' tile an' lots of wallpaper an' paint left over!"

An' Boudreaux say, "Me too!"
