    That was probably terribly embarrassing, but I'm happy you shared it :)

    I’m coordinating a gift for a coworker whose getting married. I sent people my Venmo name and no one could find me. Couldn’t figure out the problem until I realized I had my profile set to private. Whoopsie.

    I picked up C from her preschool program and said “Bye, love you!” to the teacher on the way out.

    But then I made it even worse by being like “I mean, uh, we like you, but. Heh. See ya.”

    This makes me feel better about saying “Its okay sweetie!” to the random man who said excuse me while crossing in front of us in WDW. Just so used to calling C sweetie I guess.

    This is B’s cone of shame.

    He got us fancy cheese and crackers for a snack and was all excited that he found “plant-based” crackers.

    A week or two ago I had an awkward (on my end) exchange at the grocery store where I asked someone if she was an actress, and she said yes, but I couldn’t place her exactly and didn’t ask her name or anything. Now I’m 80% sure it was Andie MacDowell and I feel like that makes it worse than if it was someone less recognizable.

    To be fair, I never recognize celebrities. I’d see them fairly often back in the LA days, especially at my work and default Whole Foods. Would almost never recognize them unless someone pointed them out, or I’d realize who they were after the fact. The only one I ever saw that I recognized immediately was Owen Wilson, and mostly because he was talking.

    When we moved into this house there was a shelf in the fridge that never quite sat right, it would shift and fall off the track super easily. We got annoyed with it, took it out and shoved it into the gap between the fridge and the wall. For three years. Emptied out the freezer this weekend and discovered there are track grooves on the sides...guess what fit perfectly into them?

    You missed an opportunity to thank her for actively making Groundhog Day and everything else she's in worse!

    I always wondered how she had a career. She’s lovely but blander than an unsalted potato.

    Oh now! That's so unfair.


    There are many varietals of potato that taste great without salt.

    We bought a new dishwasher because ours died Saturday. Turns out some switch was flipped and we didn't need a new one after all.

    Who let us buy a house?

    Listen the dishwasher light switch is a dirty trick and idk who invented it but it was probably Mr Whirlpool to sell more machines. We did the SAME thing (called maintenance vs buying at least) in an old apartment. This is not you, its Big Suds.

    Everything needs a local shut-off.

    None of my other appliances have a light switch though? Its not like the dishwasher doesn’t have its own off button. Wheres the oven light switch?

    - I genuinely want the answer to this. Im not trying to be snarky!

    Not sure why, but my guess would have to do with it having power and water but not an accessible valve shut off like washing machines typically have the water shut off visible. I’m pretty dishwashers used to be primarily hardwired and this is a holdover in the code.

    That explains why we couldn't find a "dishwasher" labeled breaker in our breaker box. @whatchyagonnado I feel much better knowing that a smart lady like you was also duped by Big Suds.

    I kinda hate our new dishwasher but we already turned the box into a playhouse so I'm not sure we can return it.

    My dream self was making dad jokes. I told someone I had three dogs because paws are cheaper by the dozen.

    Now you will always have to use that line any time you tell someone that you have 3 dogs.

    Had my car serviced today. It was a major service that took a few hours so I dropped it off this morning. They text when the car is ready to be picked up. I was trying to text J when I got there about how my Uber driver spent the entire ride talking about Corona virus conspiracy theories but I sent it to the service department guy by mistake o_O
