Comedy of Errors # 5

I was at the deli counter of the grocery store today, waiting for my number to be called.  While  waiting, I remembered an embarrassing thing I said years ago at another deli counter.  I had been waiting to be helped then too and, while I waited, I read the labels on the different deli meats.  I saw one that said Red Sod Turkey Breast.  I was intrigued - what kind of turkey breast was it?  Had the turkeys been fed red grass?  Russian grass?  Boston grass?  The deli clerk finally called my number and I asked, "What's that Red Sod turkey breast?  I've never seen it before."  The woman was really polite and said, "Um . . . that's short for "reduced sodium".  Talk about RED!!

Liebster Blog Award!

Jennifer Young gave me, and four other bloggers, the Liebster Award.  What is that, you ask?  The Liebster award is an award designed to bring traffic to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.  Thanks, Jennifer!

This award is a pay-it-forward kind of thing meant to help others get blog followers - what a great idea!  Please check out the following five bloggers that I am passing this award on to:

Winners are supposed to say five things about themselves so, here's my five:

  • I have a twin sister (we're fraternal).
  • I love to untangle jewelry chains - weird, I know!
  • I'm very political.
  • I used to climb trees and buildings when I was a kid.
  • I'm tri-lingual - I speak English, Sign Language and Pig Latin.
