Mail Order from Where? (Raita)

“When I first saw Bo-bo in the garden— I thought it was ‘cause I was takin’ them dizzy pills.  I tried to convince myself that Bo-bo was just an alien mirage.  But after a week — when Bo-bo was still there — I figured I should be more hospitable and offer up something to eat.  You should have seen how cute Bo-bo looked gobblin’ up all my homemade raita.”

—Mama Bonnie
