6 Random thoughts while I wait to check blood sugars

I have a few questions/thoughts running through my mind at the moment, so I thought I would share...maybe it's Flo trying to come back out for a visit or maybe I'm just tired...who knows...

First of all....How come there is never enough cheese (I use that term loosely because I am quite positive that it really isn't actual cheese) in those little containers of cheese and pretzel sticks? I mean it's this little tiny cube of cheese spread and they give you like 8 pretzel's just not right...

Secondly....Why is it that the people who really have no idea how to use those self-checkout registers at the grocery store are always the ones who decide to give it a whirl for the first time while I stand in line behind them...late for something...because I am inevitably always late? Don't they know that my daily plans are more important than their ability to master the self-checkout register? lol

Numero 3.....I would like to know if the person who came up with the idea of the "Double Down" sandwich at KFC is the same person who came up with the idea of a hamburger with donuts taking the place of an actual bun? yep...heard about that little slice of food ridiculousness on the radio today....yuck

#4.....Am I the only one who finds it a little creepy that the people who work at chain bookstores will walk around and assault/talk to you and try to sell you a particular book? I mean odds are if I am at the book store...I am probably looking for a specific book and would rather not have to pretend like I am buying your shpeel about this fantastic new book that sounds oddly like a rip-off of that movie "50 First Dates" with Drew Barrymore....

FIVE....I bet it would be fun to be one of those people who work in grocery stores and hand out samples. You get to wear the cool white apron, fancy plastic gloves, and give people tiny bite size pieces of free food....or teeny tiny dixie cups of juice.

6....One day soon I would like to approach someone out in public while holding Emma's toy microphone and pretend like I am with some sort of mobile gameshow and tell them if they answer some random trivia question and get it right...then I will give them a BRAND NEW CAR! but really just give them a toy car....yea...maybe that one is taking it a bit too far...ah well...time for bed I guess!


  1. WOAH! Are you in need of a lil sleep sunshine?!? lol

    The cheese and pretzel thing... so true :)

  2. Ah...I am guilty of NOT using the self checkout. I KNOW MY LIMITS! I don't even try. Hope you slept well FLO!

  3. I liked #6... mostly because it's something I'd like to do too.

    When I lived in Vancouver, there was this old guy that was famous for walking around a place called English Bay with an old tape player hooked up to a microphone. He would come up to people and serenade them to the music he was playing. He sang "Me and Bobby McGee" to me...

    #6 totally brought back that memory. And made me smile. Thanks!

  4. I NEVER use self check out because I know that I will be that one moron stuck there trying to figure out how it all works :)

    Oh and I actually tried the double down from KFC and I liked it!!!!

  5. I want to be there when you do #6.. just sayin'
