In which we cracked up


You guys know that Andie is home. I know you do because I’ve written about it a ton and now I’m going to write about it again because … I want to and I can. Also because we end up doing lots of stupid and funny things.


Excellent news: I’m going to share one with you. Of course you might not think it’s funny because sometimes you have to be there and it’s totally not my fault you weren’t there.


Since Andie’s been home she’s drank all my TAB. You guys know what TAB is right? It’s only the original diet soda and along with FRESCA, the only one I’ll drink.


So anyways, Andie drank it all and we decided that we would run up to the grocery store and then get some froyo aka Frozen Yogurt. I told you that Kevin was out of town right? Maybe I didn’t.


We get to the store and we need three things: TAB, milk and I want some diet popsicles since that’s what I basically live on: Weight Watchers Fudgsicles.


Me:                  hey we need raisins too

Andie:             ok

Me:                  maybe we should get a cart

Andie:             we’re getting 4 things; we don’t need a cart

Me:                  sometimes the sodas are on sale

Andie:             WE DON’T NEED A CART


So we don’t get a cart and get the raisins and milk and fudgsicles and Andie sees some Diet Dr. Pepper on display.


Andie:             hey! I love Diet Dr. Pepper so let’s get some

Me:                  ok


… and we come to the soda aisle. Lo and behold a 12 pack of soda is $6.49 but they’re having a sale 3 for $12 which is quite a saving.


Me:                  see? They’re having a sale. It’s stupid to buy one.

Andie:             so let’s get three

Me:                  how can we possibly carry that?


So then Andie piles the 4 12-packs and tries to carry them. I meanwhile have a basket with raisins and fudgsicles in it and I’m carrying the milk and I almost die laughing because Andie is seriously attempting to pick them up.


I put the milk in the basket (making it weigh a ton) and grab 1 12-pack and see if Andie can manage the other three.


She barely makes it to the checkout aisle without dying and I can’t stop laughing and we go to pay. I tell her to get a cart (which she does this time) and while I’m paying she’s loading stuff into the cart.


We’re walking out and I say “Andie, why didn’t you bag anything?” because the cart just basically has raisins and milk and ice cream and stuff floating around in it.


Andie:             oh, I forgot the bags


And then we die again and I grab a bag to put the little stuff in so it won’t be falling all over my car.


Then we head of to froyo.


Now neither Andie nor I really get toppings. Usually Kevin gets Reese’s Cup and we steal from him but he wasn’t there so Andie put a few pieces on her yogurt. We always eat one at the toppings station but don’t tell anyone.
This time I didn’t want a topping but Andie obviously did and while I was waiting at the checkout I see Andie approaching munching away.


I say to the guy:


Me:                  it looks like that girl is eating some of your topping


And she looks at me shocked and then we both collapse from laughter and the guy starts laughing too so Andie did NOT get arrested and that’s what it’s like hanging out with us.

  1. Did you pick up Tab along with the Dr Pepper?

    I learnt my lesson with offers on soda so always take a trolley. Then I stick other stuff in it as I am mooching….then I get to the checkout and have a heart attack as does my credit card.

    Loving the froyo incident!

    I am. Jealous. I have on daughter.. ( three sons) and we used to be able to go to the Dollar Tree and shop for two hours and laugh at everything. Then she grew up moved away and married a man who loves her dearly. But she has lost her silly, because he has none. He also has little empathy, and I am afraid hers is leaking away. But I remember those days. We still have moments like that now and then. We sneak them in when Tom isn’t around. Don’t tell him.

    I just had a thought about Tab yesterday. I haven’t had it in 20+ years. I don’t think it is sold anywhere out here in Colorado. I assumed they stopped making it. Hmmm will have to be on the look out for it….

    Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice
    from an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
    fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?
