Week of Tallulah: Thursday

Tallulah Mae, you look like an alien here, an adorable alien giving us the raspberry: "Pthbbbthhhth..."

BTW, check out this Wikipedia explanation of why it's called a "raspberry"--derivation is from "raspberry tart" in rhyming slang (as in Cockney), and "tart" rhymes with...well, since this is a polite little blog, I won't type the word here, but you can figure it out, I think. Funny!!!

and NOW I KNOW about raspberries! i love finding out idioms and phrases we use that have no literal sense in themselves... our language is a crack-up sometimes.
