The Woolly Mammoth's eggplant birthday party

No eggplants were ate.  I didn't know diddly about eggplant in 1995, and I still don't.

Why do young growing eggplants wear purple Charlie Brown t-shirts?
They are just hanging there on the plant like third-grader monkeys at an eighth birthday celebration.

Oh my baba ganoush!  Aren't those the cutest, smartest, funniest, best-behaved kids you ever met?  I am cherishing the memory of all those funny extra sons who used to hang out at my house.  I know the current status of three of these goofs, and wish I knew the other three.

Because I had designed and made the costumes for a production of "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" along with the the promo t-shirts, the birthday gang headed to the performance.  First, we made an important stop at 7-Eleven to concoct bizarre Slurpees.  If you are an eight year-old male, Slurpees are sport championship, art form, gross-out competition, and beverage.  This phase is harmless in the long run, and is not a gateway drug to tattoos and visible piercings.  So go ahead and celebrate 7/11 with a free Slurpee:  

Monday, July 11
Happy 7-Eleven Day
Our Birthday, Your Bash
Stop by for a FREE 7.11 oz Slurpee drink, general merriment and a one-man dance party should you choose to start it. 
When: Monday, July 11 12:00 AM until 12:00 AM

Not imagining Slurpee eggplant flavors! Just wondering why our garden veggies wear those little aubergine shirts with the zigzags.

We had a phase of home-made gross out blender drinks...milk, juice and diet coke was the kids favorite concoction. They thought it was ambrosia.

It's so weird how kids suddenly go from not wanting any foods to touch each other on the plate to making those gross concoctions.
