a feel good song from Lucy

Five year-old Lucy happily sang to herself a song she made up about her older sister:

"Iris is a servant
Iris is a servant
Yeah yeah yeah!
She does all the boring stuff
She does all the boring stuff
Iris is a servant
She does all the boring stuff
Like cooking
And washing all the clothes."

Later, Lucy walked up to me and asked, "Wouldn't Iris make a good target?", her beautiful cherubic face beaming.

Queen Lucy spends another happy afternoon extolling the virtues of her serfs in all ways.

I just looked it up, Hallmark says it's serf appreciation day.
Who knew? (Lucy apparently)

Silliyak, Iris loved your comment about Serf Appreciation Day.

Hughman, you guessed it: 'tis moi who washes the clothes and does the bulk of the cooking. The husband, though, has to unplug the toilets from time to time, do all the tech support, and vacuum (I hate vacuuming, but now I have a little hand vacuum that is quite powerful, so I will do spot vacuuming here and there, especially around the litterboxes).

I'm afraid you've committed a grievous error, you've encouraged me. This drops the quality of comments while increasing the quantity. It definitely brings out the Crusty the Clown in me. Hey Hey Hey!
