Snippet of a Grocery Receipt

Things That Begin With C

 

  • chicken
  • Crystal Light
  • cat food
  • coffee creamer

Creating my list for a quick stop at the grocery store is a mental game for me:

  1. Make a mental list.
  2. Repeat it a few times out loud.
  3. Count the items.
  4. Keep the numbered items in my head.
  5. Enter the store.
  6. Go to it!

I’m sure people wonder why I have a quizzical look on my face as I stand between aisles. Actually, who am I fooling? They aren’t paying any attention to me. They’ve got their own lists and looks.  I wonder:  Are they playing the counting game, too?

Yesterday I added Chobani yogurt, celery, and cheddar popcorn to the cart {bonus!}.

Seemed to be a C sort of day….  😉  How do you keep your brain sharp?

Remember when you were little and had that GIANT box of Crayola crayons and endless sheets of blank white paper? Remember how carefree and happy you felt as you drew purple elephants, orange grass, and places no one had ever seen? What happened?   For most of us, being creative is a distant memory, and depending on where …

It’s Friday and my brain has been buzzing all week… with all sorts of things. Wanted to share one this morning, before I head out the door for the ‘day gig.’   🙂 I say that with affection… I love what I do! I recently finished reading fellow blogger, medical doctor, and author Carrie Rubin’s novel, …

Soooo….. it’s currently 98 degrees outside and 89 degrees inside. The “Maytag Man” paid us a visit this morning after our a/c bit the dust late last night. O.M.G. That pretty much sums things up today….  Nothing funny happening.  (but I’ve gotta find a little humor, somehow) As the technician spoke with my husband about air …

A well known (by some) annual event took place Friday…. did you participate? Do you know what it was? Don’t worry if you didn’t know, but here’s a heads-up for next year:  The first Friday in June is known as National Donut Day in the United States.  Which brings us to another idea to consider… Is …

  Here’s a short Sunday Funny, evening edition. After two weekends of highway travel, I thought I’d rant with some funnies. I suspect some many of us will relate…..  😉               Stupid drivers, do us all a favor and get OFF the road!! This concludes this evening’s rant.  😉  

Do you ever notice what I like to call ‘textual mishaps’ when you’re reading something (including blogs… maybe even this one once in a while…oops!)?  I sure do. Often, when I’m driving. Business signs are the best…. sometimes on purpose (GREAT marketing technique) and sometimes not on purpose (low literacy/no proofing = problematic marketing).  In fact, I saw one the other day I’m saving …

One word:   Autocorrect Autocorrect:  Defined as ‘text replacement; replace-as-you-type; an automatic data validation function’ Autocorrect:  The thing that irritates me the most about my phone! How about you?  I’d add:  The bane of modern communication! There’s no denying it – Autocorrect creates some funny (and maddening when you’re in a hurry!) stuff.  Here goes….   This week’s …
