I am not Jewish, and though admittedly I do have some friends who are, I just always assumed that certain things were “known” about the Jewish faith in general. Things like, they do not eat products made from pigs. Now, yes I do realize that not every person that is Jewish keeps a kosher home or follows all the dietary requirements that are dictated. That being said, I can come up with no reason that an advertiser would try and entice shoppers with a Hanukah ad for Ham! (follow the link for pictures to the”offending” products)
- Talk about a huge breast!
- Tying the legs together keeps the inside moist.
- It’s Cool Whip time!
- If I don’t undo my pants, I’ll burst!
- Whew, that’s one terrific spread!
- I’m in the mood for a little dark meat.
- Are you ready for seconds yet?
- It’s a little dry, do you still want to eat it?
- Just wait your turn, you’ll get some!
- Don’t play with your meat.
- Just spread the legs open and stuff it in.
- Do you think you’ll be able to handle all these people at once?
- I didn’t expect everyone to come at once!
- You still have a little bit on your chin.
- How long will it take after you stick it in?
- You’ll know it’s ready when it pops up.
- Wow, I didn’t think I could handle all of that!
- That’s the biggest one I’ve ever seen!
- How long do I beat it before it’s ready?
Last year, LatteGirl rather than allowing me to throw out a little sapling that had begun to grow in the cracks of the patio, decided that we needed to save it, and I discover that I have a Treehugger in the Making. Well, those plans got screwed up a bit when TheWife was cleaning out her annuals, saw the little tree sans leaves in the fall, and figuring it was dead, threw it out. Needless to say, LatteGirl was not please with this and despite repeated apologies from TheWife.
Fast forward, to this spring, once again, we have started a new sapling tree, pulled from the same little crack in the patio block. As we were cleaning up the yard, and TheWife was putting some dead annuals into the compost, LatteGirl stopped her, took her over to her little tree and said:
“Now Mommy, don’t forget this year. This is a tree. The leaves fall off of it in the Autumn. That is why it is also called ‘fall’. So please do not forget this and throw away my tree again! Can you do that for me, please?”
“School’s Open… Drive Carefully” We have all seen the warning for years now, but I never quite understood it. What are they trying to say? We can’t afford grief workers for the other students, so please only run the little buggers down during the summer?
That being said, there are a few more signs that autumn has arrived.
5. All the MDA telethon donation shamrocks are finally taken down.
4. The only backpacks and luchboxes left in stores are ones that have chacters from this past summers box office bomb.
3. Bloggers start making inane lists into posts.
2. All the beautiful colors… the browns and golds that are starting to appear… in the seasonal aisle at Target.
1. Pumpkin Spice Lattes return.
So what are your sure signs of fall?
