Bedtime Stories with Grandpa Sam

Sock Monkey/Best Friend, originally uploaded by LydiaJo.

So Sam is out there slopping around in hot mayo. He was waving the wrecker on back, directing it with his big, tough hands when the back tire of the wrecker drove over a unbroken bottle of mayo which was lined up just right with Sam... spewing warm mayo, greasy, slick, and white all over his face, glasses, and the front of his shirt.
