Honestly it was another slow day here at home. Jim returned to work after the holiday weekend while I returned to job hunting and such.
I had a short list of grocery items that really could have waited but I wanted to get out of the house and do “something” so off to Walmart I went. While standing at the checkouts, I heard this squeaking sounds here and there as if a clown was entertaining shoppers with a silly horn. It was strange. I heard the sounds amplify as I waited on line. I started to wonder if it was some sickly hydraulic lift that the store was using. I looked around, still couldn’t locate the source. The noise got louder and saw people looking down but I couldn’t see beyond the register’s displays. Finally:
Yeah, cute for like the first 3 seconds and then thereafter I wanted to steal her shoes. Not to sell. Not to wear. Perhaps to dissect. Maybe to burn. Obviously the inventor didn’t have kids. This is definitely something Jim and I would buy for your kids/grandkids just to piss you off. We’ve threatened our friend Tim with such behavior and he nonchalantly fires back that he’d disable the noise maker and tell the child it’s broke.
About the turkey bacon. Tim (yes, another mention) said he loves bacon has been enjoying turkey bacon. I should have asked him about which brand he used. While at the grocery store we chose Jennie-O extra lean turkey bacon. It only has 20 calories per slice. We chose it for being the lowest amongst the choices. This afternoon I decided to cook the bacon in preparation of tonight’s meal. The package gave directions of several different cooking methods but didn’t recommend microwaving. I texted Tim asking how he prepares it. He responded “microwave”. Well, it didn’t make sense so I called and found out he never used the brand we purchased. I fried it up with some Pam, per the package directions. It wasn’t great, it didn’t suck. It was “eh”. Turns out he likes the Oscar Meyer brand so maybe next time I’ll sacrifice some points for a better flavor.
|Tragedy befalls a fellow RVer. Jim’s credit card is late to react. I preach about being the best at your job that you can be. We visited “The King’s” estate. The bad BBQ experience – more hype than service. Pink limo’s. This is quite an interesting day, read about it here.|
