Eat At Your Own Risk

You never know what you might find in your food at my house.  Usually it’s a harmless hair.  But yesterday I got the following email from my husband:

There is a tooth in the baggy with my sandwich!!!!!!!!

You see, the day before, my son lost a tooth one afternoon and promptly placed it in a sandwich baggy for safe keeping.  My guess is he intended to put it under his pillow for the tooth fairy but forgot and left it on the kitchen counter.

The next morning I got up to pack lunches.  I made a sandwich for my husband and unknowingly picked up the abandoned tooth-in-a-baggy and plopped the sandwich inside.  When he opened his lunch, he was in for a very rude surprise.

He said he debated for a while whether or not to eat the sandwich and finally decided it couldn’t hurt.

BRBRBRBRBRRRRR….  I think I would have lost my appetite.

Hey, that could be the next fad diet.  Whaddya think?

And speaking of nothing to do with fashion rules, your comments on yesterday’s post are quite comical when read in succession.  Evidently a true Southern woman would never wear white after Labor Day and a true fashionista should know that such antiquated rules no longer apply to the world of fashion.

It is precisely because I am aware of such conflicting attitudes towards the color white that I felt the need to ask for advice.  On the one hand, when in Rome…  I definitely don’t want to offend the delicate sensibilities of any traditional Southern ladies at my brother’s rehearsal dinner.  I’ve been in a situation before where I looked like a Yankee buffoon at a Southern party, but that’s a post for another time.  (Remind me if I forget – it’s a good one!)  Suffice it to say, I want to make sure we don’t look like dolts.

On the other hand, yes, they are kids, I’m quite sure no one cares what they are wearing. 

I think I’m going to go with their short-sleeved corduroy dresses and brown mary janes and call it a day.  And I have saved out some summery play clothes for daytime.  We’ll be staying just off the beach so hopefully it will be nice enough to throw on our suits and catch a few rays.

For those in the DC/Philly/NYC area, I have a really cool announcement coming up later today.  Stay tuned…
