Life is Grand



Sometimes are you just taken back by how much you learned from your mother?

Because when I was in the Arby's line after I dropped off one of my favorite babysitters (and its Friday, hello!), and I love love love Arby's. So while ordering I was thinking about how stinky it is they only give you three sauce packets. Do I need to pay for more? That is dumb.

So when the nice lady named Griselda asked me if I wanted some Arby's sauce

I said,

"Yes, I am pregnant and that I the ONLY thing I want"

With a big smile of course.

"Do you know what you are having?"

"Nope, but I have a boy and two girls already so.."

"And my nurse's name is Griselda too!"

"Oh!!"

"You don't hear that name very much"

She agreed.

And guess how many sauce packets I got?

52

My mother would be proud.

Okay, so maybe not about sauce packets, but I was very proud of myself.

After all, she bakes cookies for the people who fix her car, leaves sodas for the garbage men, and can sweet talk herself out of anything.

The woman knows how to work it.

Nice! I feel the same way at Taco Bell when I ask for Medium sauce and they give me TWO packets! What!? I put 2 packets on each BITE people! So yeah, when I see that they have the hot sauces out by the napkins and straws and leisurely take me like 2 handfuls...just to show 'em!
