Random Conversations

Conversation with cute little college girl at Tar-jay today:

Little Girl: "Uh, excuse me ma'am"

(in my mind: she just called me ma'am)

Me: "yes"

Little Girl: "ummm, I don't really know how to buy this, but could you, ummm, look at this lettuce and tell me if it's a good one"

Me: *Inspects one head of iceberg lettuce in packaging* "looks like a good one to me"

Little Girl: "ok, thank you very much, I wasn't really sure"

Me: "you want to make sure the outside leaves are, ummm, green and that's about it"

Little Girl: "yes, ma'am and thank you, i just wanted to check with somebody"

(in my mind: she called me ma'am AGAIN)

Ok, folks, some mother has sent her daughter off to college who cannot buy a head of iceberg lettuce! She had spectacular manners; however, that won't curb hunger pains.

So parents please do your part and empower your children to shop in the produce section.


Overheard today while sitting in the carpool line at my kids school, while high school football players passed my car:

"WOW, look at that"


"Little windshield wipers on the headlights"

"Oh yea! That is TIGHT"


I hope my car is still that cool, when my son is driving it to school. In 7 years!

HEY! I have love bugs on my lights, is that tight?!!

Yeah. I guess not.

I hate when twenty-somethings call me ma'am.

You can buy produce in your Target?? I haven't seen that around here. I want to buy lettuce at Target.

Tight? Hadn't heard that one before! But if it is cool then I'll start saying it!
Like Tight Dude!

Ummm...maybe you should have told her to buy a BAG of lettuce. :) That way she could just check the date. I'm laughing, but the first time I sent my college aged son and his girlfriend to buy "a pound of hamburger meat" they called from the cell to let me know that the grocery store didn't sell hamburger meat. Only ground round, sirloin and chuck. And all of the packages were different weights. What should they do?

Peggy said...

I would have told her about the bag of lettuce also. Much easier than having to cut up a head of lettuce. And then I would have told her to buy a meal plan at the UofA to make sure she was able to eat.

I'm just glad she didn't pepper the word "like" into the conversation like my college students do.

Tight windshield wipers. I like it. That's off the hook. Yo!

Ok, I know that was completely random and had nothing to do with this. :)
