I’ve got stuff on my mind – too much to post at once – but some things I need to let go of, so I dropped them here into a post entitled “randomness” and I waited until there were enough to post. For those of you following my blog for any period of time you have already realized that I am unable to tell a story by getting right to the point. There is always a story associated with it, some background, some clarification… It’s a terrible habit.
But here are some random thoughts which have been kicking around for a while – please feel free to chime in!
How do they get those cute little baby-cut carrots? I say they’re grown that way but Urban Mummy said the go through a little mini carrot lathe like machine which whittles them down to size.
Do you know?
If you do, do you still feed them to your kids?
I found out today, May 1st that they are specially modified carrots with more sweetness and artificial colour which are peeled and cut in 2 – the baby-cut carrots that is, the baby carrot are just that – baby carrots. To keep the carrots from drying out because they are now peeled they are soaked in a water-chlorine mixture which is rinsed off before they are bagged.
I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m going to have to run this by my wife who is just about completed her holistic nutrition certification… Update at 11.
Why are there no Meat Loaf vending machines?
Chicken, veal, beef, pork, spicy, no salt, with gravy, or ketchup… The options are endless…
Saw an old draft I had from Chinese New Year - There was a place near my office offering up a “Traditional Chinese New Year lunch” which was advertised as a pulled pork on a bun and a chicken wrap. Huh?!?
I saw something the other day I had never seen before and hope to never see again. There was a boy – less than 10 years old who was standing on his hands with his feet up against the wall right under the hand dryer at the kids swimming pool. He was drying his ass… Oh yes. It’s not like the change room was empty either… It was packed full of other kids and parents who didn’t seem to notice – or couldn’t care to comment on the fact this was happening.
Both my boys walked by this – strange – child without blinking an eye. We got into the hall, I was shaking my head the whole way when Stewie broke the silence with this gem;
“Did you see that boy blow drying his ass??? That was crazy!”
“Yes, yes it was, Stewie” I replied as the 3 of us walked out of the school shaking our heads.
“Ass”. I didn’t even know he knew that word…
Just today on my way into the office there was a woman who had just gotten off the bus and was crossing Eglinton Avenue at the light. I noticed her because she was wearing these huge boots that came over her knees and she had a tight black miniskirt which went about mid-thigh, and she had very long braided hair. She was listening to music and was clearly oblivious to her surroundings because as soon as she got halfway into the intersection she must have realized that her panties were falling down because she took both hands, grabbed just below her hips and pulled those suckers right back too.
Too bad for her that in doing so she lifted her skirt up to her waist and the entire street got to see her bum cheeks hanging out of her black underwear as she fixed her stuff and adjusted her skirt back to mid-thigh level.
Without missing a beat.
What a way to start a morning!
