THE DEBATE, Tobacco Sauce and Potpourri

Last night we spent the night at Bennigans in celebration of Gabe's leaving for Basic Training... he leaves Tuesday morning and we had some friends join us for a little get-together.  One of the waitresses made a Taz balloon hat for him and he good naturedly wore it all through the night.  When we returned home we watched reruns of the debate.  Did you know that there was a red line drawn on the red carpet that the candidates were forbidden from crossing?  I find that halarious.  However, maybe a shock collar would be more effective.  There were a couple of times when it looked like the candidates might cross the line, and they always looked down, then backed up.  But if they really wanted to, there was nothing that would stop either one from just pounding their opinion into their opponent's face.  There fore, I propose shock collars for Wednesday night's debate... one step out of line, one twitch off topic and ZAP! 

I got a message from Rocky's principal.  Apparently the school cannot accept food donations for the cafeteria for health reasons and other redtape mumbo-jumbo.  The 'quality condiments' will be returned to us.  Rocky is okay with it though, she's just tickled that her petition was taken seriously.  She was explaining the whole situation to my friend last night and said that she and her friends had petitioned for the school to start offering 'Tobacco Sauce' in the cafeteria.  I had to laugh because when Gabe was a tiny one he had grabbed a cup full of spit from one of his daddy's tobacco chewing friends and took a huge swig before we could stop him.  The gross part is... he wanted more!  That child still has a cast iron gullet to this day!

Dickidoo had french onion soup for supper last night.  He decided to share it with us this morning.  When I complained, he defended it by calling it 'potpourri'.  Hah!  More like 'poo-poo-ri'!  Its just 'ewwwwwwwwww!

HANDSOME SON THERE DORN........DID I MENTION MY DAUGHTER IS VERY PRETTY <WINK><WINK>........OH, SORRY, OFF TOPIC.............SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A GOOD TIME.  LOVE THE TAZ HAT..............(WHERE IS MY STRAIGHT PIN?)

I WAS AFRAID THAT WOULD HAPPEN WITH THE "QUALITY CONDIMENTS".  MOST SCHOOLS THESE DAYS WILL NOT ACCEPT FOOD FROM OUTSIDE SOURCES.  BUT I AM SO GLAD THAT ROCKY TOOK THE INITIATIVE TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE.  

I ACTUALLY WATCHED PART OF THE DEBATE LAST NIGHT, BUT THOUGH I AM SORTA TEETERING ON THE BUSH SIDE OF THE FENCE, I JUST CANNOT WATCH THAT MAN SPEAK.  IT IS NOT HIS FORTE. I HAVE TO ADMIT THOUGH THAT HE WAS A BIT AGGRESSIVE LAST NIGHT.  I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE RED LINE.  NOW I KNOW WHY THEY LOOKED DOWN AT THEIR FEET ALOT.  

WHEN I SAW THE TITLE OF THIS ENTRY, I THOUGHT YOU HAD MISSPELLED TOBASCO.  AFTER READING YOUR ENTRY, I TURNED GREEN.  AFTER NOT DATING FOR 14 YEARS, I MET A NICE MAN ONLINE AND WE DATED FOR ABOUT A YEAR ON AND OFF.  WHEN WE FIRST MET, I DIDN'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM OTHER THAN HE WAS A CHRISTIAN.  HE TOOK ME OUT TO EAT, AND WE BROUGHT OUR DRINKS BACK FROM THE RESTAURANT IN LARGE PLASTIC CUPS WITH LIDS AND STRAWS.  I WAS SO THIRSTY, I COULDN'T STAND IT THAT HE HAD SOME DRINK LEFT IN HIS, AND MINE WAS EMPTY.  I THOUGHT HOW COOL IT WOULD BE FOR HIM TO SHARE.  HE NEVER DID.  SO WHEN I GOT UP TO PUT HIS CUP IN THE FRIDGE TO SAVE FOR LATER, I TOOK A REALLY BIG SWIG........ AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN QUITE RIGHT SINCE.  IT WAS ALL TOBACCO JUICE WHERE HE HAD BEEN SPITTING IT DOWN THE STRAW.......EWWWWWWWW.  I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW HE CHEWED...........GOTTA GO, FEEL SOMETHING EASING UP MY ESOPHAGUS.........

BLESSINGS, REGINA

Hi there...please wish Gabe a fond goodbye and wishing basic goes easy for him. Great entry..I can see the candidates doing the head flinch every time the invisible fence would zap them.  Too bad they are not given truth serum before each event...LOL...Sandi..http://journals.aol.com/sdoscher458/LifeIsFullOfSurprises

Hi,  I've never been to your journal before ... but, I've just found a new favorite journal. :-)  I enjoyed reading your entries and I simply LOVE the idea of the shock collars for the canidates.  What branch of the military is Gabe heading to?  I have two sons who have completed basic training for the US Navy.  I gave the address in my journal and they got several cards of encouragement. :-)  The boys get so lonely and homesick during the early part of basic.  I wish Gabe the best which ever branch he is serving.

awww, great photo, and he wore it too! LOL
that stinks about your food donation, sheesh!  I'm sure the bottles were sealed and all, what's the big deal?  Oh well, it was still a wonderful gesture.  I'm thinking instead of a shock collar, what a about one in their pants, how funny would that be when they got zapped, LOL!
