laugh with me, not at me


So, I went grocery shopping the other day. That’s not unusual. But what was unusual was what happened once I got home. My son asked what was on my bottom. I reached back to find a sticker.  one that says “ripe.  ready to eat.” 

Really?  I knew it was from the avocados that I grabbed. The ones I grabbed right when I walked in the door. It was there the entire time. Sheesh. Even all alone in my kitchen I was red with embarrassment.

My husband was all too happy to do the squeeze test to check for ripeness.

Have you ever embarrassed yourself like that?  I hope I’m not the only one.


  1. That.Is.Awesome. At least it wasn't "reduced for quick sale" or "past expiration date." ;)

  2. I love it, although you probably didn't at the time. Your Hubby is funny, mine would have done the same thing.

  3. That's so funny! A friend of mine just recently posted that she spent an entire day - running errands, helping in classrooms, school pickup, etc. - with dog poop on the bum of her jeans. Oops!

  4. this is A.W.E.S.O.M.E!!!!!!!! thanks for the smile!

  5. Love it! Glad it was you and not me.

  6. lol. glad to know my hub's not the only one testing for ripeness ;)
    and yes. I have embarrassed myself like this...but I love that you blogged it!!

  7. It could have been "Day Old" or "Marked for Clearance"... I'd love to have a ripe butt again. Thanks for the laugh!

  8. Indeed, I have. However, I think yours is actually quite charming. Don't be red. I think it's cute! Just like you...



I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
