You just can’t say it enough.

May 26, 2012


First of all, Happy Birthday to Lloyd’s Mom! Here’s a picture of your oldest – he took me out to dinner and a movie! (Hence the lemon. We’re not nearly that fancy around here.)

We went to Cheddars.

Speaking of the movie, we went to see The Avengers. For the most part, I liked it quite a bit. The only problem was that we were sitting so close I had trouble watching the whole screen, and during the New-York-is-getting-attacked sequence, I fell asleep during the explosions. Me getting tired in theaters – what can you do?

After the movie was over some ushers handed out treats. Awesome! It was like trick-or-treating! They were granola bars, and it was part of a promotion. On the way to the car I looked at it, and let’s see if you see what I see.

Flavored flavor flavor

See?!? I’m not crazy! What is up with the first unnecessary ‘flavor’? We had a guess that the typo was the reason that these were being given away.

Worker: “Somebody put too many adjectives on the wrapper.”
Supervisor: “Dang. How many did we print?”
Worker: “Ten thousand.”
Supervisor: “Double Dang. Let’s bag ’em up and give them out as incentives – but not to smart people who will catch it, pass them out at superhero movies. Those kids can’t read.”

We also had a good laugh about how they were made in Canada, so that’s probably where the goof-up came from. Knowing no Canadian accents besides Bob & Doug MacKenzie, Lloyd and I reverted to our worst Sven & Olie impressions.

Lauren (as Sven): “Hey, did you finish those wrappers?”
Lloyd (As Olie): “Yep.”
Sven: “Did you mention the flavor?”
Olie: “Oh, yeah. There’s flavor.”
Sven: “Maybe you better write it again. Make sure they know there’s flavor.”

It really doesn’t take much to entertain us.

    I was looking too hard and didn’t see it. I thought you were going to say something about it having a yogurt flavored coating. Mmm… chemicals that taste like yogurt…

    Happy Birthday, Lloyd’s mom!

    Thank you you for the birthday wishes. It has been fun. I’ve been out to breakfast with Christina’s family and gotten home safely. Who knows what else this day will bring!
