corporatecasual: Overheard Conversation

Mom: I am very excited about Trader Joes, too. Everyone at work was talking about it.

Dad: They have very good store bought sushi. Excitement doesn't even begin to describe what I am feeling about a new grocery store opening in the vicinity. Tremendous excitement is a closer approximation.

Mom: They also have peanut butter filled chocolated covered pretzels. AND REALLY GOOD FROZEN THINGS. and this salsa that is so tasty and the cheapest dairy ever. It is especially helpful when I need to bring something in to work, for one of the secretaries' birthdays or something.

Dad: Parking looks like it will be difficult, though. But it's so close, you have all that extra time not spent in transit to look for a spot near the door! This is the best thing that's happened to us since they opened the new Whole Foods!!

Mom: It is very exciting. And since we are only a thousand years old, we will enjoy it for a long time to come, or until a newer grocery store opens. Then we can talk about THAT!

As if you needed to prove my point further, Ms. I-Threaten-People-With-the-Type-of-Weapons-Grandmothers-Wield.

Tupperware party, huh? Were you inspired by the Tupperware documentary they showed on PBS last week? The one you watched sipping on a steaming mug of Constant Comment tea, wrapped in an afghan you'd macramae'd yourself, surrounded by your one thousand cats?

I don't watch tv. I heard a nice little thing about the cultural relevance of tupperware parties in the '50's and their subsequent revival on This American Life and thought it would be a nice way to get all my girlfriends together for a nice night in.

And it wasn't constant comment tea, jerkwad, it was french vanilla cafe international.

Oops, by PBS I obviously meant NPR!!

It must be nice not to get hot flashes anymore.
