THE PARENT TRAPPED

I cling - you might think this is mean - hee hee ...but mom has fallen in love with a star. Bewitched and switched by fortune cookie, she has thrown a temper tantrum big so far. She’s pimple gained and my large waist, and frown, but I look fantastic - I’m phat for him. I lock her in my room - I wear her gown. She’s red as blood, her big fat legs not slim. The bag is banging door - she threatens me. So this’s tough love and that’s no way to treat a bombshell-child and groom who’s wild for she. I’ll slide a tray and feed her soon - I’m sweet! This flip-flop worked just great for me, dear mom! Like you taught me, just count to ten — be calm.

You fooled me too with your title. I have seen both movies and enjoyed them both. To experience such drama would be incredible Kim. Loved your version! Congratulations on your win! : ) xxoo

Truly funny, and I liked the way you used fat and phat; they brought each other out, in a great and happy way. At first I thought you were talking about The Parent Trap because of the title, and it is my all time favorite movie. After I read the name of the movie, I re-read it and it made a lot more sense.

LOL...quite a twist, right?! Used the title of one movie and the basic plot of another. Glad you enjoyed!
