Since Annie found it necessary to publicly ridicule my "stroller", figured I'd entertain you all with a photo of it. Yes, it is the size of a small motor vehicle, but it serves us quite well. I actually walked to the park the day the photo was taken, complete with the watermelon keg (thanks, Jill!), and no one laughed at me! Half way there, (it's a whole two blocks) I did take Belle out to carry her and Grace got it. It gets a little tough to maneuver when all three kids are in it (I don't usually carry watermelon kegs with me), as I figure at full capacity it weighs about 130 pounds. Seriously, with that work out, I should be much more trim than I am!

Anyway, as Annie noted, my dear stroller deserves a name . . . any suggestions?

Well, according to an on-line dictionary the synonyms for stroller are: stroller
Part of Speech: noun
Synonyms: actor, beggar, buggy, carriage, perambulator, performer, pram, tramp, vagabond, vagrant, wanderer

and for blue are: amethystine, anthocyanin, anthokyan, aqua, azure, cerulean, cobalt, cyanin, cyanosis,

I was trying to think up a cutesy one...not just blue buggy..cobalt carriage...cyan scion (after that silly looking car?)...brood buggy...troop tramp (monkeys live in troops)? Trooper scooper/troop scoop?...M.I.L.T.O.P. (Mom's Incredibly Large Troop Organizing Perambulator (I tried to make it MILTON but couldn't figure out a good N word quickly).

How about "the smurf buggy"? And hm...watermelon keg--I want in on that action! ;)

Anne said...

Wow. That thing is huge! I'm in the market for a double stroller now. I'm going to stop into Once Upon A Child this coming week when I'm home and pray that they have exactly the stroller I need!!

Anne -- I got this on at Once Upon a Child. They have great double joggers as well. I highly recommend the "swivel wheel" in front!

Sam -- Wow! You put a lot of thought into that! Impressive. I like Trooper Scooper, although it ryhmes with Pooper Scooper (but I do a lot of the too!)

I'm so psyched that you made a watermelon keg!! So it actually works? Was it hard to do? It looks awesome.
I love your stroller too. I've seen those for two but I don't think I've ever seen a three-seater. Wow.

Anna May said...

This post has given me a lot of laughs. All those posting comments, you have done a great jog. It all brightened my morning.

I WAS wondering what it looked like after Annie said something.

Jessica said...

That is SO funny! I love it!

I have never seen a watermelon keg. How cool is that?!

And a TRIPLE wide jogging stroller?? I have a double jogger--with the swivel wheel, which I love-- but a triple stroller must be quite convenient and QUITE a workout!

Big Blue, of course!
