That's a song?

First I thought it was nauseating foods. And I'm always one with sage advice from having lived so many, many years more.

Charlotte said...

I hereby predict that this one won't be won until Melissa tunes in to play.

Sorry folks.

Mom,I'll give you a point for being first on the board.

Sunday dinner we had pork steak marinated in Italian dressing,applesauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, broccoli/cauliflower, corn, green salad(lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, cauliflower), avocados on the side, whole wheat white bread, 3 kinds of butter and strawberry jam.
Spencer gags at applesauce, doesn't like mashed potatoes.
Dallen tried to say corn was enough vegie but his mom said he had to have a green one as well.
Jessi liked everything, bless her.
Robert wanted throw away the real butter because it had been melted previously.
Melissa has texture issues with avocado.
MaKell wasn't happy about the whole wheat white bread.
Kristian not happy with potatoes or the salad this week.
Ty was very upset about getting a barstool rather than a regular chair.
Dad and Kaylee ate and discussed track, oblivious to the hubbub going on around them.
No comment on Jacob and ShaLiece.
Josie seemed to like the potatoes I fed her while we were waiting for Melissa to eat so she could get Josie her bottle.
Pretty typical Sunday meal.

Melissa is in Beaver with her sister checking out sister's car which decided it had been running long enough yesterday and stopped. Melissa picked up sister, mom, grandma, 2 kids and transported them to Cedar. Chris had a dentist appt, the others were along for the ride.

Charlotte - you are probably right on this one. I had to Google it. I have to say I was a little surprised.

So, I'll try for some points by embarrassing myself. I have to admit that I participated in the following fads:

1. Leggings with big tops and big hair - fortunately this was short lived with me
2. Annie Hall mens wear
3. White hose with dark outfits - what was that all about? It took one of my guy friends pointing out that I looked like a nurse to get me to stop!
4. Jams - those pants that had the elastic at the bottom of the legs - not a good look and I only had 1 pair. I immediately stopped wearing them when I saw a very, very tall BYU basketball player (who will remain nameless) wearing them before he went on his mission. It wasn't a good look!

I've also had good advice in my life.

1. Always assume the best of those around you - especially when one of them has just cut you off in a traffic jam. Someday, you'll need the same from others (boy is that true)!

2. Get to work early - and start a little early and end a little late. That has worked every where but the phone company. It was union and you had to stop and end work at exactly the precise times they listed. Weird.

I should go to dinner at Mom C's house - that sounds great! Although, I cannot complain about the cooking at my house since I don't do much of it. Yep, I'm spoiled beyond belief!

Mom C said...

The point I was trying to make was most food is nauseating to someone. And I forgot that Kristian had real issues with the corn, even when I said Grandpa grew it, picked it, cut it off the cob and I froze it!
Talk about a nauseating fad. Eliza came upstairs Saturday all upset because Spencer, Kamree, Kirstin and Jessi were saying something, counting to 3 and picking their noises. Grossed her out completely. I didn't investigate.

Charlotte said...

Mom: a point for that rundown from Sunday dinner. Thanks for the update on Melissa. one more point for that nauseating niece/nephew story. Gulp.

Carol: a point for sharing that good advice, and reminding us all of those terrible terrible fashions that we all loved so much.

Four points still on the table, for musical and song.

Harmony said...

My good advice--at the least the piece I keep trying to pound into my kids' heads--is: BE NICE!

Charlotte said...

A point to Harmony for the good advice (and the rhyming wasn't bad either)

Fads:
1. I wore John Stockton Shorts in the eighties. Don't tell my children.
2. I once let a girl peg my blue jeans and I wore them that way for and hour or two.
3. I started wearing button down shirts when the fifties came back in style (back to the future) and I have never stopped since.

On nauseating food. I always cook stuff my kids don't like. More for me.

I think I have made up all the comments that were lost now.

Charlotte said...

a point for jeff for all those fads. Good times.
