On our latest visit to the Houston area, we went to Logan’s Steakhouse and got it to go. Chris ordered chicken strips/fries but got no ketchup. So, we just decided to go to the Walgreens next door. No Ketchup. None at the Shell station next to Walgreens. WHERE IS ALL THE KETCHUP, HOUSTON? So I came up with the brilliant idea to go to McDonald’s, order a small fry and get all the ketchup you can carry. What if it’s behind the counter you ask? Well, here’s what you do: say you have an addiction to ketchup and you have only purchased the frys to satisfy your ketchup craving and so you can eat the ketchup without looking like you’re insane just eating ketchup straight from the package. People can’t argue with an addiction or a crazy person because they’re afraid of what kind of other crazy you might be. If they resist giving you more ketchup, then just give them some crazy eyes and say give me the freakin ketchup. Now. Smart people will give you the dang ketchup. So, Chris went inside McDonalds to act out “the plan”. After about 5 minutes, he came out looking defeated. I thought, how could my plan fail? Well, here’s how: He had a large fry and 6 ketchup packets. That was clearly not the plan. It failed because I said get a small fry. And act crazy. Crazy would have more than 6 ketchup packets. Or maybe it failed because people are stingy with their ketchup. Anyway, we finally got back to the hotel, got out the ironing board/TV tray, sat at the end of the bed and enjoyed our nice Logan’s Steakhouse meal while watching the miserable Cowboy’s game.
Went to the zoo while I was in San Francisco and saw lots of cool animals….zebras, anteaters, peacocks, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears, oh my!
Then, I came to the Alligators. Or where the Alligators were “supposed” to be. This is what I found:
Really? And he wasn’t alone! There were 2 metal alligators, I guess so they ONE wouldn’t get lonely. Maybe the metal alligator species is in danger, and they needed TWO here to begin reproducing. I wonder what country metal alligators are native to? Also they were CAGED IN. Metal Alligator shapes in a cage. To keep them from hurting me? To keep me from bending them? I have not friggin clue. Nice try, San Fran, your tricks didn’t work on this Texan.
I wonder what you feed metal alligators? I bet they don’t drink water…wouldn’t want them to rust
Sign at the entrance to the beach
Things this sign taught me:
1. The ocean will take your feet right out from under you. But your head will be above water, so it’s ok.
2. A beak will come out of the ocean to eat you if you stand on dry rocks. It will give you no warning.
3. The ocean is sneaky, don’t turn your back on it. It might steal your wallet.
4. ooooh shark!
UPDATED: SunDrop’s new commercial is about Squirrels and Sundrop. WHAT!? How did they NOT contact me about this? HEY, SUNDROP!! YOU SHOULD HAVE USED MY SQUIRREL PICTURES FOR YOUR COMMERCIAL..or me because I LOVE Sundrop. Anyway, I hope one day sundrop is available everywhere and that all people in the world get a chance to taste the wonderful goodness of Sun Drop (diet, or regular). This is my wish for the world. Also that they all know Jesus.
