get ’em while they’re cheap

I saw this sign at Russo’s.  Then I did a double take.  And a triple take.  And the guy across from me said “Yeah, I had to look at it a few times too!”
“I feel bad I don’t really need any!”  I said.
“Bah!  Get ’em anyway,”  he said.
“I’m going on vacation, they’ll just sit in the fridge.”
“So what!  Bring ’em with you!”
“You know?” I said, “That is an excellent idea!”
So I did.

National Geographic

It’s very rare for me to pick up a magazine outside of a doctor’s office.  I’m just not a magazine person.  But this caught my eye.  I’ve always been an animal behaviorist, specifically wondering what animals think, and why they do what they do.  This special issue is about just that.


Anyone remember this poem (besides my mother, who agrees with it wholeheartedly, I’m sure)
“There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead.

And when she was good
She was very very good.
And when she was bad
She was horrid.”


Conversation before bed tonight:

Doug:  If you think of it tomorrow, can you put these in the sun to charge?
Me:  I won’t think of it.  Leave me a note.
Doug:  IF you think of it…
Me:  I won’t.  Just leave a note.
Doug:  Here, I’ll put it on your phone.
Me:  Then I’ll wonder “Why the hell did Doug put this on my phone?”
Doug:  I’m going to bed.

This is what I saw when I walked through the kitchen 10 minutes later.
