I’d rather be Parallel Universing

Anna!  Look!  We’re in the Parallel Universe!

It’s almost exactly like our universe, Bob.  Our names are even the same!

Ugh!  Anna, the ocean’s saltwater!  Don’t cry Anna.  It’s not that bad.

I miss our Lime Jello ocean.

At least  they have the same statue!  Doesn’t that make you feel better?



She’s not holding a stick of Arid Extra Dry deodorant like ours is.

Oh Anna, cheer up!  Look!  Some of the words on the plaque are the same as ours!

Which ones?

. . . your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free . . .

* * *

Until next time . . . I love you

    • Ha! I had a feeling those typing drum sound effect lessons would come in handy some day! Lime Jello isn’t my favorite flavor ocean, but I think it’s the most appealing to eye. 😀

    • Haha! I think you’d have to eat your way through a lime jello ocean — luckily there’s always room for Jello, though otherwise the whole Jello-ocean concept just wouldn’t be feasible. 😀

  1. Haha, very good! Transitioning from an ocean of lime jelly to salt water must have been a bit of a shock.I guess in their universe you simply eat your way to the Statue 🙂

  2. So do they got to the Jell-O ocean to wrestle? Have dry t-shirt contest? (sponsored by Arid Extra Dry of course) Is English humor considered wet humor? I want to go parallel parking…I mean to the parallel universe. Fun stuff.


    • Hah! I just asked my husband who is an engineer what quantum coupling is. He’s still talking . . . I better get back in there before he notices I’m gone. LOL!! Thanks for your comment Doug! 😀

  3. I just want to say that I found your story very inspiring.

    It inspired me to take a bath– something I hardly ever do.

    I added 100 boxes of Lime Jello to the water, which may have been a little excessive.

    Gee, I sure hope this wonderful “tan” lasts till St. Patrick’s Day… : P

  4. Ahhahaha! Yes but Lime Markie MacGiggles Jello would be such a boon to the Jello industry. See it wiggle watch him giggle . . . . you’d be more famous than Jared from Subway! Tan or no tan! 😀

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
