Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post. Then leave a link to your Friday Fragments post with Mr.Linky (below) and link back to me in your post (please). [For more details on FF posts, click the button above.]
***It was a tough decision this week, but my Favorite Friday Fragmenter Award goes to Semi-Slacker Mom, who posted this gem:
Sassy & I were discussing Baby Girl's new favorite song, Jesus Loves the Little Children. She understood the black & white part but the red & yellow part confused her. I explained that the yellow represented Asian children, which she is familiar with. Before I could tell her about Native Americans, she says "And red is for rednecks"! Yeah, we don't get out much.
Take this and wear it proudly, SSM!***Dear Shopko Express Employee,
I am really sick; I am swallowing razor blades here, and I really needed those meds I bought tonight. You checked me out with a smile on your face, and now I understand why. I walked out, got to my car, realized I forgot the little Vicks thingy, and tried to walk back in, only to find that you had locked the door behind me, five minutes before closing time. When I finally got your attention to open the door again, you said, "I'm sorry, we're closed now."
"It's 8:57. You're closing early?"
"Well, I have everything shut down now, so yes, we're closed."
You pissed off the wrong person, Lady. I hope your supervisor chews you a new one tomorrow, because you deserve it. (And she was on my side when I called her.)
***FYI, these Cepacol cough drops?Hands down, absolute nastiest cough drop I have ever almost-eaten in my life. Seriously; tastes just like poison. I suffered through half of it and had to spit it out. Thought I'd warn you (though I hope you don't need any!)
***Mr.4444 makes wonderful "Camp Beans," with bacon, red and green peppers, garlic, etc. They are very soothing on a sore throat, I learned tonight. After I had snarfed a bowl's worth, (I didn't have much of a dinner and got home at 8pm from a conference) I said,
"Wait. These are going to make me fart tomorrow at work, aren't they?"
He assured me, "No. I took all of the farts out."
****There are many, many touching, funny, entertaining fragments just waiting to be explored. Why not leave your Friday Fragments link here and visit a few other fragmenters? It's always worth the trip :) [Sorry, non FF posts will be deleted.]
