Some cruel jokes are taking place around here, lately. Surely.
I give you, exhibit A:
Whereby, last week, just last week, I passed this truck getting off the exit ramp to go home. My children and I all gave the driver an oh-so-cheerful wave. You know? One of those “you drive the best truck ever because
our mama we would surely perish without the aid of your delicious products once a day in a blue moon” kinda looks? Yeah. One of those.
But, never again. If you haven’t yet heard the earth shattering news of my beloved Hostess Company‘s impending demise, please! Do not shoot the messenger. While I did read, today, that The Twinkie will survive, that does nothing to assuage my deep sadness over the loss of my beloved Devil Dogs.
Then, there is exhibit B:
Really? Really, Lands End? I heart you. I really do. But, what in the name of all the Turkey in Heaven were you thinking sending out a bathing suit issue 3 stinkin’ days before Thanksgiving day? I ask you. Because, truly? The last thing I’m interested in thinking about, before I head into Triptofan Oblivion, is what bathing suit I’d like to be wearing come June. Word-a-Mercy!
And then, there is this:
Some dear sweet “Anonymous” friend left me a card in my mailbox with belated Birthday wishes and this gift card. It is to PetSmart. Unfortunately, we no longer have any pets. I do not intend to buy a new one with this card. And, I’m left to wonder, who in the world cares about me enough to drop a belated birthday card and yet not well enough to know that our pet has been gone from 4 months. Puzzling, no?
However, hope springs eternal! My Sweetman bravely went out to forage the grocery stores so that I would be kept in Devil Dogs at least through next
week month. He does love me so. And he is wise, to boot! (He also picked up a few of his own beloved Ring Dings. Not my bag. Nor are the Coffee Cakes; but far be it from me to judge.) And, lest you think I jest, I give you the final exhibit:
That should hold us over for a few
days weeks. And for that, I am thankful. Oh, yes indeedy!
Are you going to miss Hostess? Which variety? C’mon, you’re among friends here. You can tell us…
