Orio Boscal (Please Boom)

Today is the birthday of the Oreo Cookie.  I don't remember which birthday.  I was told, but I guess I thought they had ALWAYS been around.

Anyway we are having a party.  Well, actually any excuse for a party is a good one.  We are having cookies and milk, and are playing the five contenders for Oreo Jingle of the year.

But what startled me was an announcement on the bulletin board:    3:00 Orio Boscal (Please Boom). I studied that handwritten notice and the calendar of events and discovered that Anna, the youngest resident here, and quite dyslexic, had copied the notice from the calendar to the bulletin board.  She is the most active and the most willing volunteer for any of our activities.  No one is  willing to say "Anna, please don't help," because she tries so hard to be helpful.

Nevertheless, I did write a translation under her notice

  Your story has dredged up a rather odd memory from my scrambled psyche. I seem to remember Mike Douglas getting lessons on the proper way to dip and eat an oreo cookie, in both milk and coffee, from (and this is where it gets a little bit strange) Tony Orlando. Now either that TV show really happened, or my mind completely invented that memory, and I'm not sure which one of those options scares me more.

Since you wrote about cats and cookies I'll just say my daughter had a black and white cat named Oreo. It chewed up her new leather brief case so she gave it to an elderly woman to give it a good home because she thought Oreo was lonely with my daughter and her husband gone to work all day. Paula
