Not long ago I solicited questions for Iris and Lola, and Lola is ready to answer her questions! Without further ado, I hereby present "Ask The Lola."
Longterm reader Silliyak asked, "Should there be a 'Burning Woman' event? Where? What would it be like?"
Lola opines, "Yes, there should be one. I have no idea where it would be. Yeah. There would be no men, I guess, since it's 'Burning Woman.'"
An anonymous reader asked, "Lola, is it fun to be the Fun Police?"
Lola said, "Yes. Yes, it is!"
"Is there anything else you want to say about that, Lola?"
"No. The Fun Police work alone."
Another anonymous reader asked, "Lola, what is your favorite word?"
A third anonymous person asked, "What is the best advice your sister has ever given you? What is the worst advice your sister has ever given you?"
"I don't know."
"Lola, you gotta say something."
"Seriously, I have no idea."
"Has Iris ever given you any advice?"
"Not that I can remember."
Carroll asked, "What advice would you give to a nine-year-old girl who is starting 3rd grade at a new school where she doesn't already have any friends?"
"Make friends or be alone forever!"
"How would she make friends, Lola?"
"That's the hard part."
"Do you have any advice for her to succeed?"
"Stay in school. Don't tattle on people, or they'll be like [aarrrgh noises]. Yeah."
More questions from Carroll: "Please describe some of your mother's cooking projects for us. Successes? Failures? Your personal Favorites? Do either of you like to cook too? Do you get to use the Aga?"
"Sometime I get to use the Aga. My favorite is da da da da, drum roll, umm, I think mashed potatoes. Definitely mashed potatoes. I don't like any kind of salad, not just that [Muzzy] makes but in general. I don't like salad. I don't really like to cook, but I like stomping mashed potatoes. Muzzy has made broccoli pasta, she has made ... why can't I remember anything you've made? You've made lots of food."
Jane asked, "Lola, I'm buying a new couch this week. What color should I get?"
"Oooh ooh ooh, couches. Orange! If not orange, then black."
Anything else you want to tell the readers, Lolz?
"Pet the cats! Be happy! And that's a wrap."
Mmmmmmashed potatoes, for the win!
Thanks, Lola. I will definitely pass along your advice to my young new-to-her-school friend.
Have fun in yours (your school, I mean) this year!
Thank you Lola, wise words as always :)
