melanie-isms II

Note passed in church:
Mel - I'm bored and Roxanne ditched me, so who am I supposed to pass notes to?
Mom - Sister Majors right there in front of you, of course.
Mel - I don't think she wants to pass notes.
Mom - How can you tell? Try it.
Mel - What do I say? But I'm sure she wants to pay attention to the talks, not pass notes back and forth with a 13 year old.
Mom - ok, . . . I guess you'll just have to be bored. Oh, I know! Why don't you pay attention to the talks???!!
Mel - No way hozay!

Melanie: (said to a boy who sits next to her at school) "You smell like Disneyland!"
Boy: Is that a bad thing?
Melanie: No, it's perfect!
Rachel: I'm going to see the play 'Hello, Dolly'.
Melanie: Wasn't that the sheep that was cloned?
Mom: Yes, Melanie. There was a sheep named Dolly that was cloned, but no, they didn't make a stage musical out of it. (Yes, she sewed her hair in the sewing maching. No, I don't know why.)
"Look what Lexi did! She chewed up my shoe in the night! Get out of here Lexi, I'm mad at you. No! Get away - I'm giving you the silent treatment!! Don't you cuddle up to me, Lexi! I mean it!! . . . . . . . oh, you are so cute. . . ok, I forgive you!!" "Good Night, my fellow family members!"

Where does she come up with these things? I couldn't be that creative even if I took a class and studied creative comedy.

Funny AND beautiful...a deadly combination. Melanie is HILARIOUS!

Mel is swell.
Mel is sweets.
Mel's the delight
of all she meets.

This kid cracks me up. I dont see her that offten but when I do I have MANY stories to take home to my mom, I wish I could just take Mel home with me. No one tells stories like she can. You should write a book about her called Melanie-isms!!!! It would sell like crazy!
