Just a quick post tonight… a few things I’ve seen recently that made me go… What the What!? Which is a better phrase than I could have used… you are welcome families everywhere! When I went to the home shows several weeks back, I saw the following picture in one of the houses… GAUHL. I was all like, hmmmm… the family who lives here must be named Gauhl… because that makes sense… either that or they forgot how to spell “goll” as in Golly Gee, Opie! I thought about this stupid word all day… through all the houses I walked through… that night when I got home… when I was eating dinner… when I was trying to go to sleep… because that’s how my brain works. If something doesn’t make sense, I obsessively think about it until it does. The making sense of things doesn’t happen too often, so I mostly just have a bunch of random jumbley words/thoughts swimming up around in the brain… thus, the ADD issue!
I finally decided someone really wanted to spell U-Haul… because that also makes sense to have a U-HAUL truck sign decoration sitting up in your household like it ain’t no thang. THREE WEEKS later, it hit me… DUH! For serious, Whitney… L-A-U-G-H!!!! Stop it and go to your corner. Gauhly Gee, Griselda!
I bought some cashews a week or so ago for a recipe… and because I’m an obsessive label reader, I also scouted out the nutrition facts… as I usually do.
I also check out serving size and how many servings are in a container, so I get my money’s worth… aka I’m a cheap skate and cashews cost like 8 bajillion dollars per nut! This particular bag’s serving size is 1 ounce… the usual serving size for a nutball… and if we look closely they tell us there are 8 servings in this particular package. Okay then… someone explain me this:
There are now 8 one-ounce servings in a 5-ounce package!?!?!?!?!?!?!? By whose math calculations, Einstein? The nerve of these nutballs anyway! If I didn’t have a right mind, I’d have opened another package right there in the store to pour 3 more ounces into my package… it’s only fair! 😛
Question of the Day: What is your favorite kind of nut?
