underneath that


okay, so this is how i imagine this conversation went:

wal-mart employee: 'hello 'dis walmarts, how can i help you?'

customer: i would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'

wal-mart employee: 'what you want on da cake?'

customer: 'best wishes suzanne, underneath that, we will miss you.'

sometimes, it is just the small things that make you feel a little bit better. my friend keely forwarded this in an email to me yesterday. i don't know if a deadline, getting my taxes in early so i can apply for financial aid for graduate school and going to the bank for a home equity line of credit had pushed me over the laugh-in edge, but this just made my day.

even though i have been known to wear two different shoes, this made me feel instantly better about life in general.

I can absolutely see that happening! lol

Life can be filled with so much serious stuff at times that it's great to be able to kick back and realize what a hoot life is, too.

Have a great day, and keep smiling.

This is hilarious!
Good luck with the money stuff. I went back to school 5 years ago and am still digging out of the money hole. I can completely commiserate with you -- I just bought a house that needs a new roof. I pray for a dry spring, because I can't afford to fix it until the fall!

Talk about having a heaping plate, Dawn! Taxes and grad school and financial aid and home equity... my roomie is doing the financial aid for school, too, and commiserates with you. BTW, is chocolate+sky still available?

Dearest D,
Thanks for making my BD special! Love the cake!!!

Keep on keeping on. No matching shoes required.

You know I used to work in a bakery and take the customers' orders, so this made me laugh like a loon. :) Good luck with the grad school plans. Financial aid dealings are never fun, but it will all be worth it. :)

I'm so glad you liked it, Dawn! I get tons of jokes and funnies daily from my friends, but it has to make me laugh out loud to get passed on anymore!!! (Or moan and roll my eyes.) [grin]
