Local I Do! I Like Them, Sam I Am!

Literally just yesterday I was Seussing it up with a group of friends who have kids roughly the same age as my own. Someone told a funny story, made funnier by the wording which sounded sort of Seussish, and someone else quickly remarked on that. Then I shared that when my husband is full-bore exhausted, he sometimes quotes Seuss, specifically, "Dad is sad. Very, very sad. He had a bad day. What a day Dad had!" And instantly every other person listening said, "Hop on Pop!" Because every single one of us has read that book umpteen times to our children and think of it fondly now that we no longer are called upon to do so.
