Adventures in Shopping feat: Mom

November 24, 2012

(Making a late Thanksgiving dinner)

Mom: Did you get rolls?
Suebob: Yes, I got rolls.
Mom: Did you get butter? All I have is that Smart Balance and no one wants that.
Suebob: I got a pound of butter.
Mom: We don’t need a pound of butter. There are only six people. We can’t eat a pound of butter.
Suebob: They sell it in pound boxes.
Mom: They sell it in half pound boxes, too.
Suebob: A pound is four dollars. A half pound is $3.50
Mom: But we don’t need a pound. We only need a quarter pound at most.
Mom: You don’t have to yell.

    I love your mom. She would make me insane, too, but I’d go down laughing.

    I bet six people could eat a pound of butter. You just have to offer a good prize for the person who eats their 16 teaspoons the fastest. An angiogram, for example.

    No wonder we are all either nuts or can just laugh everything off.

    Wow, a pound of butter sounds like nothing to me. You need at least a stick to make a batch of cookies, and a small batch at that. Or a batch of muffins.

    That’s better than my argument with my mom over her internet not working. It didn’t work on her computer or her Nook. I told her it was the modem or the phone line. She bought a new computer.

    Internet still doesn’t work.

    Also..this is baking season. A pound of butter is a drop in the bucket.
