Friday Fragments for Mrs. 4444


Why did I think Beef Stroganoff would be a good slow cooker dinner?


Does it say something about how I spend my days when I enter the mega grocery store, and a clerk recognizes me and waves me over to chat?

Why is my daughter's teen deodorant advertised as, "NEW, Stylish & Hip," while my women's deodorant is advertised as, "With the maximum level of active ingredient"?

Why do my students not understand the grammar problem found in the following sentences?
He told a joke to his friends that no one liked.

Last night I planned my week-end in the tub.

If Simon Cowell ran for mayor of Detroit, I would move into the city just to vote for him.

Why is my dog so fond of dirty tissues and clean socks?

Am I the only person who likes riding with the car windows open?

Who might have stolen our recycle bin (perhaps the same person who has now absconded with my MOP?!)

If I'm not a morning person nor a night owl, am I unworthy of a label?

How can people who have never raised an ADHD child nor been one say they don't believe in medicating ADHD?

Did you hear about the lady in Detroit who last week witnessed her neighbor's home being burgled? When the robbers saw her watching and realized she was calling someone (presumably 911), they shot her. The bullet went through her window and hit her right on the underwire of her bra. She was only grazed by the bullet. I saw an interview a few days later with her husband and he said, "I am glad now, more than ever, that she is a full-figured type of gal!"

Don't you just love the word, burgled?
And what is it that I should have said to my student last night when she announced,
"Guess what, Dr. Caution? I just got diagnosed with hypochondria!!!"
???

As a teacher of many students with ADHD, I say, "I love meds!" (not that they're for everyone, but everyone should try them; their own, prescribed, that is! :)

My friend had a Doberman who used to hover over people as they blew their noses, at the ready. Grossed me out AND scared me to death; Doberman.

Are you a Michigander? I am. I noticed a few references that made me wonder.

Glad I stopped by. I'll be by again.

You crack me up.
My dogs like the windows down. Them, and YOU. :)

I likely run into you at the Canal and Garfield Kroger...I'm at 17 and Garfield.

I'll look for you at Lakeside or Kroger...

One of my favorite things about summer is riding with the windows down. My dream would be to have a convertible, but that will never happen.

I'm neither a morning person nor night owl, either. My energy seems to kick in around 3 p.m. and lasts only a few hours. There must be a label for this.....

Great list!!

What happened to the Beef Stroganoff? It's one of my faves;)

The Incredible Woody said...

I wonder what kind of underwire she had in that bra. I bent over yesterday and my wire snapped in half!!

PS - I ride with the windows down, too!

Burgled sounds more like something babies, not robbers would do.

Mental P Mama said...

Burgled always makes me think of burger. Now I'm hungry.

No one steals a mop. I think you threw it out. So you wouldn't have to mop.

Hypochondria is better than Swine Flu. Which has spurred MASS hypochondria, since freakin' everyone is calling their doctor SURE they have it. ~Mary

shopannies said...

mamas are so much more active than teeny boppers they just do not understand that

Checkered said...

OK, so I "moved" the mop. But you can't blame the recycling bin on me.

beef stroganoff is great in the crock pot...
and I ride with windows down ... and then listen to MJ fuss about my windblown hairs.

jojo said...

OMGosh too funny! Simon Cowell...hmmm, I have to think on that one. Love the story about the full figured gal...

Have a good weekend Caution..;D

ladyfi said...

Love these little fragments!

Debbie said...

Too much blog reading this morning. I actually had to think on those two sentences to see the error.

I'm hungry now. I shall go ride with my windows down and get some food :)

I am both a big fan of and a huge critic of misplaced modifiers. Those were awesome.

What a great brain-emptying that was! When I do it it sounds like lint. These were hilarious. Thanks, Caution!
