Sweetums? Hey, sweetums?

Ian in Ontario was browsing in a used bookshop when he found this copy of one of Roger Hargreaves classic “Mister” books — complete with a gift inscription to the book’s previous owner. Adds Ian: “I can’t imagine why ‘sweetums’ didn’t want it anymore.”



WARNING: HEH, HEH, Don't take this too seriously, sweetums. It's just a joke.

    He was probably too lazy to open the cover and read the note inside.

    I guess Mrs. Lazy was counting on him not bothering to file divorce papers!

    Actually, between the right couple, this sort of gift would be a funny litle jab. But the notewriter probably wouldn’t have had to explain that it was a joke.

    One reason I love used bookstores is because you can find the coolest stuff inscribed on the inside.

    We have a children’s book that belonged to my husband’s grandmother. The inscription is from her aunt, a woman long dead by the time we came along. The next page is filled with childish printing, of little Grandma practicing her letters. It’s absolutely wild. I love it.

      Heyt, if just a tiny hat is good enough for the cover of his biography, it should be good enough for the neighbors.

    You’re having a jam sandwich for dinner, dear.

    What? You don’t see any filling? It’s jam, dear – two pieces of bread jammed together.

    Heh heh.

    I picture the note writer as a guy who was asked to interrupt his busy schedule of watching , to go to the grocery store to pick up something essential for sweetums, who is cooking up a storm ahead of the family coming over. He got the wrong thing of course, powdered egg whites, when she needed eggs for a cake say, but didn’t forget to get her this little gift to remind her she’s too “lazy” to go to the store herself.

      Ah, but you have to take points off for capitalizing “Don’t” and no end punctuation.

      I’ll give it a neutral.

    Love the Mr. Men and Little Miss books. I have a huge collection of them saved from when I was a child. Read them to my kids all the time.

    Mr. Lazy is pretty cool but everyone knows Mr. Tickle is the coolest.

      I doubt it’s from Canada. Shouldn’t it say, “Eh, eh” ?
