I'm Afraid of Receipts Now

I heard something on the radio yesterday morning about receipts being chock-full-o BPA, maybe even more than most plastics. And so of course I had to look it up and find out that, yep, receipts are just as scary as the rest of life.

I can't decide which is scarier, receipts or going back to school for my Master's.

I had this conversation with The-Guy-Who-Knows-A-Song-About-A-Chicken:
Me - (whining about how scared I am to be going back to school)
Him - "You're smart. You'll do fine. You've got nothing to worry about."
Me - "I'm not afraid of the work! I'm afraid of staying up late!"
Him - "Yeah...you usually do fall asleep pretty early..."
These days, I'm lucky if I stay awake longer than the kids. I'm not afraid of the classwork at all. I'm afraid of being up past 10:00 on a weeknight.

I've been scaring my gal too, with my driving. But we were on a high overpass, so it wasn't that hard:
Her - "You're in the middle of the road!"
Me - "Of course I'm in the middle of the road!"
Her - "No, no! You're in the middle of the non-road!"
Me - "No I wasn't."
(Purposefully driving onto the shoulder.)
Me - "We would have felt the bumps. See? Like this."
Her - "But I DID feel the bumps!"
Me - "Well why didn't you tell me?"
(Changing lanes so slowly as to spend several moments straddling the line between the lanes)
Her - "Now you're in the middle of THIS road!"
Me - "I'm changing lanes! I like to change lanes slowly. And carefully."
I pass this place every day. Exactly how good does food have to be in order to precipitate momma slapping? It isn't exactly scary, but it does sort of make me want to make sure all my cooking is mediocre:Oh! And if you enjoyed Cock Flavored Soup, I found some ball cake to go with it!And also some preserved vegetable:Because I have to find ways to amuse myself while The-Guy shops.

So that's life right now: I don't have a wedding dress or invitations, but I do have a bunch of brand spanking new phobias that coordinate perfectly with the fear of my own wedding. Plus I have great skill at amusing myself in a grocery store.

I always assume those places serve food so good, you are furious with yo mamma for feeding you slop all those years previous. Hence the slap.

Tracy - For real? There is such a pie? I'm going to have to look for that. Except, we've got a lot of picky eaters around here. But as long as it doesn't have any ingredients, everybody should like it.

Thanks Marlene!

OH! Christine! That explains it!

I know sweetie, for me that's a bigger project than I really want to take on right now, what with Passover and Popo's birthday and people in from out of town and my classes starting tomorrow and btw, did I mention we're ripping up the carpet in the hallway today? :-) I'll get to it though.

Thanks DJ Kirkby & done on your inner geek challenge! I think.
