a couple amusing stories

One of the things my mom got in her stocking was a vanilla whipped creme Santa covered with milk chocolate. Only on the packaging the word "Whipped" is much bigger than all the other writing, so you see it and your brain basically says "Whipped Santa," so my dad made a joke about it being an S&M Santa. My mom thinks we have an incredibly strange family, which we do, but i think that was a perfectly natural reaction.

This morning at work, when the stuff from the book drop (a large blue almost-dumpster in the parking lot) came in, one of the items from the book drop was an empty bottle of vodka. Michele suggested perhaps the person didn't want to litter. "Or perhaps he just thought it was a trashcan," Fran said; "After a whole bottle of vodka I would have thought it was a trashcan." Tee hee. Of course the first thing i said was "Is there any left?" though actually drinking any of would have been so shady. And Michele's right that we're damned lucky it didn't break in there. We have lovely patrons (and staff) who gift us with chocolates and cookies (Pepperidge Farm sampler from Beatrice Miller = oh so yummy; i had one of each) but the vodka's gotta be a first. :)
