Ask the Informinator

Reader Letter #2

Dear Informinator:
What is the best way to put a sheet on the top bunk bed when one cannot reach the left farthest most corner of the bed so that the said sheet shall fit over all four corners???

Dear Anne Marie,
The Informinator feels your pain.  The beds recently became unbunked here and there was much rejoicing.  Although I cannot offer an absolute sure-fire solution, here are a few ideas:

  1. Child labor is the bee’s knees.  If they’re old enough to sleep on the top bunk, they’re old enough to climb up there and tuck in the back corners and pull the sheet over to you to tuck in the front.  And what better way to build self-esteem than forced labor.
  2. Triple sheet the bed.  The Informinator has been know to pull the whole mattress down and put two or three fitted sheets on at the same time (and even water proof pads in between layers during the potty training years).  Then it’s only a  matter of pulling off one layer when it’s time for a clean sheet.  This also works well for crib sheets, as they are of the devil.

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle,
The Informinator

Dear Elainforminator,

What would happen if Missy straightened her hair?  Like, I already know it would goof up the local weather channel as I have heard the station utilizes her unruly locks to plot the area’s barometric pressure readings.

Enquiring minds want to know…

Signed,

Dear Curious in Virginia,

Although the straight-haired Missy is an extremely rare sight, the Informinator was present on such an occurrence  View now what may never be seen again, as the amount of flat iron energy consumed for the occasion has been red flagged by Al Gore.

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle,

The Informinator

As you know, Elaine the Informinator knows everything. She knows important information. She knows useless information. She knows useless information that becomes important later and important information that eventually becomes useless. If there is a fact not readily tucked in her brain, she knows the place to find the answer.  I don’t know how she does this. But I don’t need to know. I know how to call the Informinator.

So without asking her permission at all, I have created a little cozy spot for her to answer reader letters. It’s your time to shine, Elaine. Go ahead, informinate.

What do you want to know? Does your dog smell like nachos and you don’t know how to eliminate this smell? Is your daughter completely against leggings? Just ask Elaine.

Ask. Ask like the wind.

  2. Elaine or informinator or whatever, we all know why Missy doesn’t straighten her hair! That would take time, and she has none for such frivoloties! AW

    1. I ALWAYS have wondered what she would look like with straight hair. Loved getting to see the picture and she definitely can pull if off. Nice job Informinator!

  3. It’s “inconthievable!” (read that with a lot of spit spewing from your lispy teeth). The hair in this photo is a biological miracle! I do, however, seem to recall hearing in the news about a domestic residence that single-handedly managed to cause a black-out in the Tampa area. Flat iron, huh…

    What is also inconceivable is that the Informinator managed to discover a sweat-free photo of this blog’s illustrious, yet sweaty editor. Maybe Elaine DOES know everything….
