I Really Know Better

Last week Way Cooler was stuck at Wal-Mart for an hour or so while our winter tires were being switched out for summer ones.  This is a guaranteed way to bring on more winter.  So if you live in my neck of the woods, I'm sorry, this latest snowfall is totally Way Cooler's fault.
For all my Southern friends, I'm from the Canadian prairies.  It was so warm on Monday that we were in shorts.  Today we have snow.  TOTALLY NORMAL.  Not fun, but hey, that's the price you pay for living in God's country.

ANYWAY, he had time to kill so he called and asked if I needed anything. Completely forgetting the whole potato incident I asked for green grapes and a bag of icing sugar. He brought home four DVDs and this.

A tub of trans-fat and high fructose corn syrup. The poor guy was totally dumbfounded when I told him that was not what I was looking for. I had to show him the nearly empty bag of icing sugar. Which, by the way, is a staple in my pantry. On the other hand I've only purchased the heart attack in a can once in 12 years, then read the label and promptly donated it to the food bank.

But hey, at least he didn't bring home twenty pounds of it.

On a different and much healthier food note, the cucumber has been located.  My sister All you OCD types can now sleep tonight.  It was in the crisper drawer where I left it.  The crisper drawer I checked three times.  Is it too early to sign up for a nursing home?

It isn't all WC's fault.. I put the shovel in the basement on Sunday. I did keep it out until April 19th but apparently that wasn't long enough.

Yay... the wandering cucumber finally came home! I can't help it; it makes me think of Larry and Bob and all of the VeggieTales gang. Oh, the things that cuke could tell you (if you only hadn't cut off his head!).

"PHEW" We were all worried about that cuke.

Can I sign up Way Cooler to do my grocery shopping? It sounds like it would be Way More Exciting than doing it myself!

Love the "Anne" reference. Shall I call W.C. "Matthew" from now on? :-)

SNOW. Ugh.

It's a man thing. They keep making mistakes on shopping errands to make sure they don't do it next time. That's my theory anyway! And welcome home, cucumber.

Phew! No moldy cukes for you!

And regarding the icing.... "Ai yah" is what the Chinese would say.
