my adventures

There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very good indeed, but when she was bad, she was horrid.

Seriously, MiniMart?

"Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese."   ~G.K. Chesterton (Alarms and Discursions) 

On Saturday, my friend Nancy and I went garage saling saleing to a bunch of garage sales.  We stopped at a local MiniMart for sustenance and I waited in the car while Nancy ran in.  Here is a recreation (I didn't have my camera) of the homemade sign on the MiniMart window that was directly in front of my car:

There are so many things wrong with this that the Grammatically Correct Tagger doesn't know where to start.  (Nancy did point out that I'm just a virtual tagger which makes me feel like a slightly wimpy superhero - like AquaMan kinda, what real powers did he have anyway? - but I'm not ready to face the possibility of arrest even if what I'm doing is for the good of society.)

After wrestling with all the issues presented by the MiniMart's sign, this is what I came up with:


  1. Hahahaha. You always bring a smile to my face and nice belly laugh too. :)

  2. Amen! And Amen!

    Plastic cheese...ick!

  3. Bahaa!

    Sidenote:I hate writing garage saleing (better than saling in my opinion) but I use the term so darn much that I don't want to waste my time changing my sentence to make my sentence proper. Please still love me ;)

  4. Lauralee - thanks!
    Kelly - ditto!
    Jodi - You crack me up. I couldn't decide if "saling" or "saleing" was correct and was amused by myself at typing both so I just did the cross-out thing so you could appreciate my dilemma. Glad I'm not the only one.
