Things that make me smile and laugh…

Remembering Lily Tomlin’s character ‘Edith Ann.’  Read on for a quick summary of her character.

Edith Ann, the 5 ½ year old who knows too much, is one of Lily’s funniest characters. Rambling on and on, Edith Ann often times offends the people around her without even knowing it. Making up stories is also a common occurrence, such as “I don’t get sick much I have leprosy” and “My friend Junior Philips went to Vietnam. He’s 6 years old”.

Her best friend is her dog Buster, and she’ll kiss him right on the lips. Sometimes she puts mouth wash in his doggie water because kissing a dog is NOT pleasant. She also likes to dress him up and try out household products on his fur to see what happens. Once while giving him a bath, some Clorox “accidentally” fell in, and all of Buster’s fur fell out. Now she writes on him with a magic marker.

Edith Ann is the middle child, with an older sister, a baby brother, an alcoholic father and a spaced-out mother. Often told that she was a horrible child and that mothers get to pick what baby they want to take home (and her mother didn’t get her choice when Edith was born) it’s no wonder she’s such a bizarre little girl. Edith Ann always ends her rambling with the phrase, “and that’s the truth.”
