Here’s one for your Monday puzzlement. Just initials, because y’all don’t need no help, right?
I.H.: I’m going to be Mary in the christmas play. And if you try to be or raise your arm, you’ll wish you didn’t.
A.W.: I’m always Mary in the christmas play.
I.H.: Go ahead then. And next spring when the pussy-willows come out, I’m going to stick a pussy-willow so far down your ear where nobody can reach it. And it’ll sit there and grow and grow and grow so for the rest of your life, there’ll be a pussy-willow bush growing out of your ear.
