: : And PLEASE Miss PaddleTALE, get plenty of rest and liquids so you can recover completely, quickly and rejoin us! Anything we can send you? Do ducks do chicken soup? What DO ducks do when sick for liquids?
: : GnomeDome
: *cough, cough...hack,hack,hack, quarkle!*
: My Dear Mr. Gnomeling, Sir,
: I answered this question a few minutes ago, but it seems to have been swallowed up by a duplicate post from someone named Doc M. *SQUAWK! This is where I should scream about the sky falling, and the world coming to an end, but I'm just too pathetic today to even try to be hysterical!*
: So...I shall TRY, feebly, to repeat my previous response. *ahem*
: I hate to tell you this, Gnomie, but...ahh...ummmmm...my Ol' Mohican Granny, Squawksalot, used to swear by a broth made of the well-stewed carcass of a wee, tiny man under the height of say, 3' or so. She insisted it would cure the common cold, in-flooo-inza, rheumatiz, consumption, liver ailments and chilblains, plus it made a dandy soak for tired, aching webfeet.
: Now, myself, *quack, quack*, being a farm-raised duck, prefer my liquids in the form of corn squeezin's, if'n ye get my drift. Pity, though...I'm fresh out! *feeble cough* Ye wouldn't by any chance be able to rustle up some for a pore, sick duckie, wouldja? I'd hate to have to resort to Granny Squawksalot's recipe, ya know. Mebbe you could get back to me on that? *cough, cough*
: In the meantime, I'll just sit on this recipe for Broth O'Shorty. I wouldn't want it to *accidentally* blow out my nestbox window, and end up in the hands of someone less scrooopulous than I. *quackquack...cough, hack...quack!*
: Yours VERY Feebly and THIRSTily,
: Miss Paddletale
Oh, don't get yer pintails in a knot, Miss Paddletale...
or should I say Miss PaddleWAIL! As a matter of fact,
your old Granny got her receipt thanks to MY old
Granny -- did yours happen to migrate over Salem
at some point? Anyway, fresh from the cauldron,
here's my Granny's receipt for her special GnomieGruel --
Take yer Gnomie
Fresh and plump't
Into yer large
Bile and straine
And lette coole
Skim fatte, reheate
That's Gnomie Gruele!
If yer achin'
If yer wailin'
If yer little
Pull ye up a
An' have yerself
Some Gnomie Gruele!!
