Some girlfriends and I were at the pool with our kids the other day, so of course the conversation turned to shaving and other topics. When I came home to talk to Derek and get his take on the information he just shook his head and wanted to know how in the world we were able to talk openly about all of this stuff. Why is it that women can talk about such topics more openly than men?
Driving around lately I've noticed several vehicles with memorials listed on the back windshields. Things such as: In Memory of Christina and her birth and death dates. Now, I'm not trying to be inconsiderate, but what is the memorialization of? Are you driving safely to honor this individual? Did you buy this particular vehicle in honor of the individual? I guess I just don't get it. I understand tombstones--there's a body under there. But what's the car memorial about?
I was grocery shopping at Walmart last week. I went to the bakery to get the kids some free cookies. While I was waiting, I started watching this old lady look at the cinnamon breads. She opened a package and tore off the corner of a piece of the bread and ate it. She then closed the bread back up and put it back on the shelf and turned to other items. Hello? I told the bakery worker what I'd just seen and she went over and retrieved the bread while the lady was standing right there. Then, I see the bakery manager come out and ask the woman if she'd sampled the bread. The woman just got a big smile on her face and acted pleased that the bakery manager had been so courteous to locate this loaf for her. The lady put it in her cart and continued to shop. You would think that's bad enough, but no, I happened to run into this lady when I was finishing up my shopping in another part of the store. A look into her cart revealed no bread. I hope none of you bought it. Gross and gross. Now I'm going to have something else to be worried about when I shop: Wackos who eat bread and put it back thus exposing me to their crazy genes.
