I've been working on the same post for about a week now.... until I finish the behomoth, here's a story from last weekend:
My huband, son and I made our weekly trip to the grocery store. I had been saving bread and tortilla bags to use as produce bags, and now I've got my chance to use them for the first time.
As we approach the checkout line, my husband warns me, "Don't let them scan the tortilla bag".
The checkout lady gets the bag, and I tell her, "Those are sweet potatoes".
"Oh." (pause) "What happened to the tortillas?"
"We ate them." (pause) "Last week."
My husband dies of embarrasment as I giggle to myself during the rest of the checkout process, and all the way home, and the rest of the day. He says I can't use the tortilla bags again. I say that I can (but I'm marking through the code). What's your vote?
