Goofy Grammar Rules

 

 

Today's Snack: Let's get goofy! Either eat dry cereal with the tail end of a spoon, or put your bowl of cereal on the ground and eat it like a dog or cat. No hands allowed! Now, that's goofy! To top it off, drink a glass of milk and give yourself a milk moustache. Be sure to have your picture taken that way . . . you goofball.
