Takin Care of Bidness

Biggest Accomplishment today:
Taking back the bottles. All the empties. As you know, here in Michigan we STILL have the silly 10 cent deposit on bottles and cans. Which MIGHT cut down on litter, though I'm not sure about that, but it DOES cost the state tons and tons of money and it makes me go to the yukky bottle return room which I hate. I'd rather just recycle.

But I survived as usual, then sanitized my hands and proceeded to spend that money and more on groceries and pregnant cravings like tomato juice and red peppers and corn on the cob.

A good friend of mine called last night. We had a good catch up chat and reminisced over an event I think you'll find funny too:

Once, we were standing around after church talking when a woman approached my friend and I and said "HEY! I got LAID this week!"
We both blinked and grinned and looked at her feeling like "Um.... not really sure how to respond...we're happy for you?"
She quickly clarified and said "OFF! I got LAID OFF!"
She didn't appear to have a sense of humor about the getting laid mistake, so we were a little desperate trying not to laugh while she was so sad about getting laid OFF.

Have you ever noticed that it's not easy to act compassionate when one is about to pee one's pants laughing....
