deep question of the day:

what would make a person (say, my ex-husband's girlfriend...but that's just an example OF COURSE) think it was a good idea to give give 7 year old child a gift certificate to the SNOOTY NEW GOURMET CHEESE MARKET??? For Christmas, people.

It is true that this particular 7 yr. old likes cheese. The bright orange powdered cheese found in Annie's Mac n Cheese. And also string cheese is quite tasty.

But seriously...

WHAT. THE. FUCK.

I guess it COULD have been to the liquor store...

She got this for Christmas and you're just now letting us know about this? So how much was the gift certificate for? Maybe you can give her a gift certificate to McDonald's for HER birthday! Or Toys R'Us

mp,
the liquor store would have been preferable; now THAT'S something she could use. ;)

Jodi,
That's exactly what I said! Let's get her a gift certificate to a toy store!! Also, I didn't find out about it until now...I think E was embarrassed to mention it.

Don't you mean the gift certificate to the liquor store is something her mom could use?

Any why are we burning witchy-poo at the stake about this? It's bad enough she has to live with flying monkeys....

kate said...

Listen Dalai Lama, I'm just having some fun. Besides, it's ERIC who has to live with the flying monkeys.

WHICH BRINGS ME TO ANOTHER DEEP QUESTION: Why is the plural of "monkey" not monkies??

Cheese is always an appropriate gift! Who's up for a fondue 8th birthday party!!

1. Don't say FUCK.

2. So Anna got a gift certificate and didn't even bring it home? So does that mean witchy-poo spent the certificate or what?

3. Words ending in "onkey" don't get to end in "ies". As in "donkey" isn't "donkies". However, I think it's only animals that don't end in "ies" because the word "honkey" does end in "ies".

So, there you have it.

"Words ending in "onkey" don't get to end in "ies". As in "donkey" isn't "donkies". However, I think it's only animals that don't end in "ies" because the word "honkey" does end in "ies"."

So in other words, you're full of shit. Can I say SHIT??

It's funny, because just the other day I was snickering about the fact that for all mom's efforts (Hello, Irish Spring!) I swear like a damn sailor. er, I mean, a sailor.

And in answer to number 2, you are correct: Anna had to use it with HER. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Words ending in y: If y is preceded by a consonant or qu, change y to i and add es: babies; cities; synergies. Common nouns ending in y preceded by a vowel take only the s: alloys; days; attorneys.

So thems the rules....

jpogue said...

Yea, that's exactly what I said.

This is odd. No question about it. I thought she was a foody, but a real foody totally clues in on what people LIKE and drowns them in it. My nonie would have your number in an hour and from that point on her fridge would be full of cannoli, peanut butter cup ice cream, cheese cake, whatever your poison is, every time you visit. You 'd have no choice but to put on 10 pounds every time you visited, but damn was she good at figuring out what you like.

The cheese gift certificate for a 7-year old for CHRISTMAS is simply food snobbery.

No mercy.

Lala, "la la la" is my friend Laura. I've got La La's every where! : )

oh your poor girl... i can only imagine your face when she told you. maybe she and her friends could use it to pick up a snack one afternoon... you know, after they play a round of golf and before their game of canasta begins.
truly bizarre.

1. Jodi, a gift cert. to McDonalds is just as bad.
2. And----one cactus, two cacti ---why not cactuses. words is funny
3. 2 Lalas, and now 2 Heathers ?
4. There's nothing like giving a gift that winds up back to the giver. ! That's planning ahead. Very clever to take Anna shopping, which I doubt she's ever done B4.
