Tonight I had to make a "quick stop" at Hannaford's on my way back from dinner at Boston Market w/ GP who sat there and ate his Taco Bell tacos without taking a breath between them (boy , he loves those things!) Anyway, I had a craving for some fresh fruit (I think it's because it's in season and it's all good. Haven't met a peach I didn't like; the trick is getting them before they go to cardboard, YUK!) and asked GP if he would wait in the car while I went in and picked up some fruit. To my surprise he said "No, thanks. Just come in with Mom." So off we went. I didn't pick up a cart as I wasn't really "shopping" just picking up some fruit...well, no sooner had I stopped in front of the peaches than GP declares,"we need a cart" and I said, "It's ok, we just need some fruit" and he says "no, don't forget the cereal!" I didn't even KNOW we were out of cereal so it's a good thing he's on top of that. Anyway, I'm all over the place tonight...sorry! Well, i went and got the cart and sent him to pick up the cereal, and all was good until I was getting ready for checkout and here comes GP carrying FIVE boxes of toothpaste and a small box of cereal. I asked him if we need toothpaste and he said "we're running low"...which means we only have about five tubes left! LOL! I had to laugh. I asked him why we needed a small box of cereal and he said "to share with Mom and Pepper", so I asked "what about the large one?" to this he replies with a puzzled look "That's Gene Paul's!"
I just thought this was so funny. GP hasn't been speaking very long and his conversations are always music to my ears. I find him to be such a funny guy. I still don't understand his reasoning sometimes but I know that if there was a hurricane tomorrow I would be all set with toothpaste and Listerine... did I mention we aren't "running low"? That's because he buys the stuff by the gallon, LOL!!! Oh, and how much Age Repair toothpaste does a 12 year old really need? He said it's new and he 'just going to try it". Hey, he could be trying some new chips, so I'm not complaining, I just think that they should have a toothpaste free isle for mom's like me... that stuff is not cheap at the supermarket! LOL! Oh, and he picked up a new battery powered toothbrush too... to use with his age defying toothpaste!
