Like, Duh!

I got suckered into going to a local outdoor store yesterday with a few guys from work.  They wanted my opinion on snowboarding jackets.  

"Aren't they all just puffy advertisements for North Face?" I asked, which clearly exhibits the fact that I should not be the one accompanying them on such an outing.  

The answer was a resounding no.  ("No" totally meaning YES in this scenario.)

Needless to say, as four business people amongst an early 20's workforce, we stood out a little.  I kept trying to ease away from the pack because SSG doesn't mind a little 20 something snow boarder eye candy ... especially ones who are probably completely high.  They're super nice ... and chatty.  Which she found out while standing over by the ladies ski jackets.

"SSG!"  I hear my name being shouted across the store.  "We're going upstairs, come on!"
(TOTAL box blockers.)

As I made my way toward the stairs, I passed two employees talking.

Stoner #1:  What did it taste like?
Stoner #2:  It totally tasted like shrooms.
Stoner #1:  How do YOU know what shrooms taste like?
Stoner #2:  (Clearly puzzled) Because I've SHROOMED before.

Wait, I get it, so I am old! My Half-Heimers was kicking in there for a second as I flashed to The Love Boat like I was actaully on it! Then I remembered that I was not the Captain, but Gopher was still making eyes at me!

Maybe today I should be going to the "indoor" store to check out the new Walkers that just came in. Oh, and buy some more Depends.

SSG, maybe you should come over for lemon drops and teach me what all the whipper snappers are up to these days! I feel so out of the loop. I thought when a person used shrooms, they were "tripping". I am so behind the times. Crap, where is my hot water bottle? Oh, there goes my Rumatism again. Ouch, my clogged artery is pounding. Do you have some Ensure?

I am not sure which is funnier- your post or Predo's comment??? :) Of course I love you both.

Predo stole all my lines. Except Half-Heimers. That's good. Gonna steal it. And one other thing to show my advancing age? Heidi and Spencer Pratt? Have we been introduced?

Wait. WHAT?

I'm going to hang out with Predo. I actually "get" him....

Predo, you just gave me the BEST birthday present! I am going to blame not listening to people on my Half-Heimers.

From what I can remember from college, you shroom on mushrooms and you trip on acid. Yet, both can be trippy!

*making mental note of Half-Heimers*

SSG - listen, I've been using **ckblock for the longest - now I will correctly interpret it as box block from here on. Thanks for the update.

Sorry - now where's my cane. I fear I'm starting to show my adge.

Well hello my darling senior citizens. It's 5 p.m. have you all been to Denny's for your early bird specials? What are your plans for the next 2 hours? That must be the hardest part of your days, waiting for Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy to come on. Although at your ages, I'm sure 2 hours FLIES by.

Written like a true smart-ass! I am soooo proud!

Hi SSG and Predo - This is BellaMomma and I thought I would throw in my two cents worth...what am I talking about...throwing in my 1/2cents worth in todays market.

OK - Predo gets credit for half-heimers, but around here we use the term some teimers. Not sure, but I think this is what you get before half-heimers. LOL.

I agree with my daughter, BellaDella, I am not sure what I laughed at the most SSG' post or Predo's comments. Love you guys.

By the way SSG, I will be more than happy to be your mom too. I have been so busy that I forgot to let you know that I was getting the paperwork in order to adopt you:>).

Love To You All,
Janice (BellaMomma)
