Strawberry Nesquik

June 19, 2007 at 3:03 pm 5 comments

Guest contributor Louis has her hands full with five dear, active, and some would allege, crazy children. With her MBA and CPA in hand, she runs a tight ship financially and imparts the principle of thrift to each of them. Recently her two oldest kids, ages 9 and 6, were asking why they didn’t get to have strawberry and chocolate Nesquik like they always get at Grandma’s.

Louis explained that Grandma and Grandpa have already raised most of their children and can spend more money on fancier groceries. Daughter Caroline, age 6, sat and thought this over for a few minutes. She turned to her older brother Buster and said she knew where Grandma and Grandpa got all their money. “They stole people’s tithin,’” she announced with savvy.

Louis corrected her and said they got their money because they paid their tithing, not from stealing it. Details, details…

    “Fancy groceries”…

    Kind of like how getting McDonald’s (sorry, Joe Miller) used to be a special occasion when we were children…

    Strawberry Nesquik played a prominent role in one of my worst nights ever. Buster, Caroline, Strawberry Nesquik is nobody’s friend. It’ll pretend to be your friend and then turn on you. That bunny is a horrible creature. Be glad Louis is a prudent grocery shopper.

    By the same token LeMar, Growing Pains and Saved by the Bell were high quality TV programs. I once met Alan Thicke and thought I was meeting Olivier.

    Lowdogg. Thank you for bringing up Alan Thicke. It reminded me of a very important subject I’ve been meaning to blog about.

    Lowdogg, what do you mean that Growing Pains and Saved by the Bell “were” quality TV programs? I dont think I understand.
