Shoot a Blue Bean

It's taken me days to get to a reply on this, but I've thought of it every day since you posted it.

What you went through is unjust, I deem. I know I got a few undeserved whoopin's, but I understood what they thought I had done, even if I hadn't. Like all justice, Parental Justice is best when swift and sure, but the sure part requires knowing where the boundaries are.

I'm glad our Bluebird emerged from your trials.

My family had a, um, live-in nursemaid or something for a while, after my little sister was born, and as a fine upstanding Christian woman she would never say a bad word.

She did, however, frequently employ the variant "Oh, shoot a blue bean!"

GRAB THE SOAP! :mrgreen:
