A little humor to brighten your day...

This morning I took the boys to Target to pick up a few things.  Topher begged to walk rather than ride in the cart, so against my better judgement, I let him.  I was examining some sports socks (still trying to acquire good running gear), and turned to find lacey thongs strewn all over the floor.  After my initial shock, it was all I could do not to die laughing.  Then I told him to help me pick them up and put them back, and he slipped on some, haha!  So we were walking along, and Topher continued to pull stuff off of shelves, so I told him he was going to have to sit in the cart.  I went to move stuff from the seat area, and saw Luke (his carrier was in the basket of the cart) holding one of the thongs.  That little booger had thrown some in the cart, too.  Apparently he thinks I need nicer underwear.  Unfortunately, that will have to wait until I lose this weight.  It is so hard as a parent to try to be the proper disciplinarian when your kid does something that is just so ridiculously hilarious.

The other interesting part of my day happened when I went to the grocery store after kickboxing.  I went to check out, and my high school boy cashier was very enthusiastic about telling me all about himself while scanning my groceries.  He told me all about the grades he had received on his midterms, some record he broke in gym class that day, his girlfriend and the date they went on last night, and some picture she sent him today that he would show me, but he would get in trouble with his boss.  He then questioned my Halloween-themed reusable grocery bags and drilled me about why would I like Halloween (and managed to throw in his love of pumpkin pie).  In an attempt to continue the small talk while he was still scanning (I had a lot of stuff!) I said that the meal deal was the best invention they had come up with.  He responded with: "We didn't invent the meal deal.  We came up with it.  It is not an invention.  You have to be technical about these things."  ... Really.  Thank you for enlightening me.  Then I asked him about a problem I have been having with trying to register my bonus card online to get the ecoupons (it keeps telling me that the card is not registered in my name, but I tried every possible variation of my name that I could think of).  He told me that he could have checked what name the card was under, but that function is only available until 9:00 and it was 9:01... maybe if he hadn't talked so much, we could have gotten to that part before 9:00... THEN he suggested that I try seeing if it was under my MOM's name... Oh boy, don't you just love teenagers?
