Not Quite Shakespeare...

it's been one of those weeks...  not one of the lazy ones - one of the nutso caboodle type ones!  I've enjoyed MANY moments of the week/weekend but I'm REALLY tired, and there's still my primary class to get through today... and my sons' Deacon ordination... and the barbecue at my house afterward...  yeah, we're gonna make it - but blogging has taken a back seat.  M.O.T.H. didn't believe it could happen - but the proof is in the pudding (and the jello fluff salad, the Manti Barbecue marinade, and the potato salad which are all in the fridge after my late night cooking session)

A few days ago I was reminded while reading blogs about Burger King wrappers and their inspired bits of wisdom... I miss those, I obviously need to take up the eating of fries again because I miss their insight - what am I left with?

really, what?

I'll tell you - I'm left with the cheesy wisdom of Ivory soap.  Bleary eyed as I was this morning I noticed that the wrappers were individually printed with quotes...  the one I stuck in the kids' bathroom said some mumbo jumbo about true beauty... did I buy into it, heck no - I still felt the need to shower and try to cover those bags under my eyes!  The one I popped into my own shower said "The road to a friends' house is never long and the directions are easy" - I was doubting this one immediately since my in-laws drove about 4 hours to get here (even though ManOfTheHouse makes that same drive in 3... he's a little lead footed maybe?) and my parents drove about 9 hours to get here... (not counting the hours of stopping and sleeping obviously).

So, no, it's not Shakespeare - and frankly, I could probably use a big, cold, icy beverage from BK  right now to open my eyes - but I'll settle for  the Ivory...  because beggars can't be choosers.

But I'll tell you what, I'm buying Lever 2000 next time, because wisdom doesn't really make up for not cleaning ALL of my 2000 body parts!

Very cute and funny! And good luck with today--the adrenaline should get you through and the Ivory soap should keep you popular. :)

I don't know why things like soap, burgers and chocolate have to have sayings. I think food should just stick to satisfying me...not warning, teaching or otherwise annoying me.

I must buy the wrong brands. Nothing I read in my morning fugues bring me wisdom. Oh wait. Our string cheese has random trivia from HSM. I wished my kids cared.

Crud - H would LOVE HSM string cheese... I'm going to have to run to the store today :)

Go-gurts have jokes on them too! It was fun seeing you this weekend. I hope your bathroom project gets finished quickly.
