Sometimes I do ridiculous things.

Like that time I became obsessed with navy and white striped shirts and had to buy 34 of them.

Like that time I went to Wal-Mart in my red snowman pajamas.

Like that time I went on a hot date with Nacho Libre.

Like that time I put my entire ass through the back of someone’s dining room chair.

Like that time I thought it was “SWEET THE LICK” instead of “Sweep the leg.”

Like that time I let my husband buy me a house without seeing it first.

Like that time I peed in a giant McDonald’s coffee cup.

Like that time I let this amazing photographer take photos of me in my 1998 wedding dress whilst eating processed baked goods.

Like that time I…


Like yesterday.

Which is how it came to be that at 5:24pm yesterday, I found myself at the drug store, spending $5.46 on the smallest box of emergency Cheerios you have ever seen. 

I can’t even explain it either.

My life is weird.

But full of cereal…and funny stories, it seems. 


  1. As a reader, I love your ridiculous things. I have a few of my own ridiculous stunts but because I don’t have a blog I just have to hijack your comments to tell you about the time my flip flop totally broke while grocery shopping one day; of course it was in the very fancy Loblaws in Forest Hill where thankfully they have a Joe Fresh (which sold emergency flip flops) but unluckily in order to access this Joe Fresh you must exit the grocery store and walk across the street. So there I was with no flip flop on one foot and having to cross the street. Outside the Loblaws there was a gardening centre so I accepted the kind young man’s suggestion to wear a flower pot on my foot so I could get across the street without stepping on a nail (because if it were to happen there can be no doubt that it would happen to me). So that is the story of how I walked across the street from Loblaws to Joe Fresh in Forest Hill with a flower pot on my damn foot. All with my daughter strapped to me in the Baby Bjorn. Amazing.

    Why emergency Cheerios?

  2. Why wouldn’t you just buy a big box?

    I’ve so done things like that. Like stopping at the store for chips and a jar of queso and then eating that for dinner.
