Fragments of my Life

You know how when you go to the grocery store and you are buying gum or a candy bar, the bagger always asks if you want to take it with you? Well this is embarrassing to discuss, but last night the husband and I went to the grocery store. Among other things, I was buying a bottle of stool softeners. So we're waiting for the bagger to bag up the groceries and he holds up my bottle of stool softener and asks if I'd like to take it with me. I said no. And I looked at the husband, thinking he hadn't heard this, and he had this big grin on his face, and when our eyes met, we just cracked up. What was this guy thinking?
-----------------------------------

Went to dinner tonight at this local Italian place. This is the same place we went to a year ago where the waitress had a tantrum and told the owner that "they" (us) "could get their own food out of the kitchen." So we were a little nervous about what we would find, but tonight we found the opposite - a young smiling waitress who told us several times that she was just a happy person. No matter what we asked, her response was "no problem." Once we realized this, we would smile at each other when she responded with "no problem." Then the husband said "I think I'll ask 'how bout a blow job?'" and see if she still responds "no problem." Needless to say, he didn't.

That's all that's new over here. The son turns 20 in a few days - we will have a party tomorrow and I am going to make a giant snowball -http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/snowball-cake-114038.aspx. He won't let me use coconut so I'll try chocolate chips.

Too funny! Reminds me... once we had a boss we called Mr. N.P. Everything plan he had he assured us would be no problem, no problem at all. Until the one time there was a problem. A big problem. And then he was gone.

There's going to be a picture of this cake? Sure hope so!

I'd like to know what you did to get the other waitress's suggestion that you serve yourself.

I guess when you're constipated relief just can't come fast enough...

Bonnie - try adding insoluble fiber to your diet. Should solve your problem.... and the bag boy will never know!

Shoot, we always have a bottle of stool softener we can chug in the car on the way home. Sometimes I hate cashiers... Hilarious!

Don't be too embarrassed about the stool softener. Heck, I eat poop...I'm a dog!

Happy Birthday to your son!
