Random thot...

You know you need to buy more clothes when... you wear new pants 2 days in a row (meaning I bought 2 pairs, not that I'm wearing 1 pair for 2 days) and EVERYBODY compliments them. Yeah, apparently I really need to get more clothes.... :-)

Foot in mouth disease.......

He's got it!

Standing in WM in the vitamin aisle. I was reaching for my generic 4$ vitamins when he says:
"You should get these."
"The Centrum SILVER. I've heard they're good"
Mandy, with a death glare, points to the corner of the box that says "50+" and says "Excuse me??"

Cue frantic backpedaling......."Didn't mean you were old!!" What does he think the SILVER implies?!?!?! HELLO!

Later tonite I get a phone call.
"I think I miss the weather up here in the summer. It really is better than KC." I think I deserve a good 3months worth of "I told you so's" out of this. AAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I went over and said hi to Kt and played w/ the babies before driving home last night. That little boy kitty is a LOVER!!!! He would get down and play and then come back and want to climb my leg and be harassed and play and sit on my shoulder and purr the whole time!! Even when he's play fighting he's purring. And the girl. OH! my goodness. It's a shoe. Oh dear. Everytime it moves I must jump STRAIGHT up in the air w/ all 4 feet. Hysterical! (I didn't have my camera with me so you'll have to do with my verbal descriptions.) At one point the little boy hid by a towel, wiggled his rear, and then POUNCED on his sister with such force that they both skidded across the concrete floor. I think it startled them both b/c he took off running and she's left sitting there going "What the heck was THAT!?!?!"

Scarred for life....

You know those things that you grow up with that 20 years later someone mentions and your upbringing just HOWLS in revolt? I sent this email to my sister just a few minutes ago...

"Does hearing about soggy cereal make you gag?
We were discussing grape nuts at wk (long story) and Laura said her mom used to rave about how she loved it "for the crunch" but she would pour it out w/ some half & half and let it soak for hours before eating it. My stomach is literally gagging just typing that. I think its the whole "pour less or you'll eat it for lunch" thing. I can't even eat a full bowl of honey bunches of oats at once b/c the flakes get soggy. I have to pour a bit, pour milk, eat. Repeat repeat."

She does it too.
See mom - we learned our lesson well. Never eat soggy cereal.
I wonder if this is where my dislike of all things not chewable (pudding etc) comes from???
