Truth in advertising

I have thoroughly compared these cartons and I cannot see why the ones on the left have 40 more calories than their neighbors to the right. How long  have I been unknowingly snarfing unreported calories?

However, being a trusting soul, I still believe the cartons reflect the truth.

I bought all of the remaining 280s.

The could-have-been-oh-so- humiliating holiday letter

 

card

 

This year my holiday message was brief. On the back of the family picture, I wrote 2 sentence blurbs about each child.  About myself, I stated that I was still employed and in my free time enjoyed volunteering in the community, including my local pubic radio station.

Let this be a lesson and cautionary tale about not putting all one’s faith in spell check.

I count it as a Christmas miracle that I caught the omission before the envelopes were sealed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The maze craze

‘Tis the season for the ubiquitous corn maze.  I have never understood their appeal. Maybe it’s because I have no inherent sense of direction and have been known to get turned around in my own small town. I like to know where I am and where I’m going. So there is no appeal to spending a precious  hour trying to find the exit to a place I spent good money to enter.

A recent visit to IKEA triggered all of the claustrophobia and frustration I remember from my visiting a corn maze as a teenager.  Even with a map, signs in the store and promised shortcuts, it took me 45 minutes to not find what I was looking for and to finally get out of the store.

It’s time to shop online.
