Skivvies

Photobucket

I carted the girls to the grocery store with me this morning. We were shopping for Easter Dinner and other essentials (eggs). There are so many things I do as a mom that I swore I wouldn't do before I had kids. Like drive the grocery-cart-with-the-huge-bright-car-attached-thing. Yeah, so wasn't going to do that!

So, here I am maneuvering this contraption around all corners and sliding past other carts down the aisle. The girls squeal with delight and honk their individual horns as we dodge around the precariously stacked displays. I pray none of them will come tumbling down at my expense.

Finally, we make it to the checkout only to have Blondie recognize that she had lost a shoe. Agh! Really? Hmmm. Too bad. A $2 flip-flop isn't worth my ice cream melting.

Loud speaker:

There has been a pink thong brought to the customer service desk. If your daughter has lost her thong it can picked up in the lost and found.

I can't keep the smile off my face - imagining only what others might be:

the lady holding up little pink skivvies.

Then I hear a slightly inaudible, "No, not that kind of thong!"

Yes. My day has been made.

GM is not potty training. Last night was the first time we attempted the big girl panties. She didn't even care about them. An hour later she peed and had a bath.

HAHAHAHA! That's totally what would be running through my mind. We've never called them "thongs". They are flops at our house (or slippers which I'm thinking is a polynesian thing).

I too swore I would never push that giant cart...now I hate when none are availible...

It makes me mad. I'm not sure WHY.
at leaSt he doesn't call them thongs.

Once upon a time my mom yelled "You guys come quick! Your dad is outside wearing Mandy's thongs". WHAT? I knew what she meant (flip flops) but we lost it big time! She still calls them thongs and we still bust up every time she does.

I think those carts should come with a complimentary cortisone shot for the potentially herniated disks.

Loved the post. Made me laugh. Hard.

Jenni said...
