No Daddy

 

Over the weekend, mom/dad went Christmas shopping.  They wanted a jump start to the season and wanted to look at stuff before it was all picked over… their words.  I’m not sure what they meant.  So they are hitting the shelves and daddy found a new friend. All mom heard was, “Honey I want”.  When mom turned around she saw this… where was daddy?  There was a muffled voice behind the horn faintly saying how much they wanted to come home with us.  Mom of course said no.  It’s too big.  Put it back.

Well, daddy never gives up.  I think we all know that by now, right friends?  A few minutes later, daddy said, “It has to be smaller right?’  Of course mom has her back to daddy and is kind of half listening and trying to shop.  She mumbles, “Yes”.  That’s when daddy gets a grin on his face and says loudly, “Welcome home my new friend.”

Now mom knows before she even turns around that this is not going to be good.  She slowly turns around and sees daddy with a new friend that is half the size of the original.  She puts on her best mom voice and says, “Why?  Why do you need a pink unicorn with a horn?”

Dad says, “Well it’s magical.  I don’t want him.  My inner child wants him.  He never had a magical unicorn.”

Okay, so how can you say no to that?  Well mom did.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  She explained to daddy that we were shopping for ‘others’ in our lives not for ourselves.  And you know, it’s much more fun to buy for others.  That’s when daddy pulled out his trump card and mentioned a certain someone here in blogville that he bet his inner child was wanting one of these special unicorns.  Now Evil Squirrel – I’m sure you would love said awesome unicorn but could you imagine sending this to you?  Heck, it would probably be better if I delivered it in person.. 🙂 right?

So mom had to explain that difficulties it would be in mailing the said wonderful, amazing, magical unicorn with a special horn and dad said he agreed…. especially when mom said if he put it back and behaved the rest of the time, she would buy him a drink after shopping.  Amazing how fickle my daddy can be.  One promised drink and Evil Squirrels unicorn went out the window.  Sorry about that my evil friend.  My mom is a hard-ass when it comes to shopping.  Snorts with piggy laughter.

Travels in the South

 Welcome my friends to another edition of Travels in the South.  Being in the south, we do have some great barbecue restaurants that come up with some wonderful creations.  This is something that we have actually highlighted here before.  In fact, when our friends Bill and Jean (with Canadian Cats) came for a visit, we introduced them to these as well.  Every once in a while, we crave these… and it helps that mom had a coupon for a free appetizer. 🙂

Let me introduce you my friends.  These are called Redneck Egg Rolls.  The restaurant takes egg roll wrappers and adds slow smoked pulled pork, coleslaw and jack cheese.  They then deep fry the egg rolls until they are crispy.  They are served with a ranch dipping sauce but mom/dad like to eat them with a spicy barbecue sauce.  They are hot, delicious, gooey and you will crave more and more!  Just ask Bill and Jean.  They will tell you.

So when in the South, eat barbecue Redneck Egg Rolls.  ❤
