the Pudding Story She wanted me to tell y'all.
So, I love my family, but we're all a bunch of freaks.
ok, all of us except my totally amazing sister, but you already know about her, so I'll tell you more about my dad and brother.
Ya see, my brother and I live at home with our parents. and our retired dad tends to do a good deal of the grocery shopping.
Dad never makes a list or anything, just goes to the store every day and buys stuff based on his mood. which means some days we have an interesting nostalgia meal waiting when we get home from work (steak diane with cheesy potatoes! marco-island barbecue chicken with apple salad!) and some days the counters are just loaded with snacks.
but for some reason, he gets stuck on weird food kicks - like when we had ro-tel every day for three weeks last summer, or angel food cake for breakfast for the month of November.
Just the other day, I was telling Blondie on IM about how my dad has been offering me pudding for breakfast every morning.
blondie: "he just offers you pudding? for breakfast?"
me: "well, they're in those individual size snack packs, so it's more like 'did you take some pudding? for when you get to work?'"
blondie: yawns, changes subject
yes, it would have been boring except then she came over the next week for our Desperate Housewives girls-night-in and he offered the both of us pudding.
dad: "you girls want pudding for dessert?"
I looked at Blondie like "see?" and we both just sat there trying not to laugh.
my brother watched this whole exchange go down, and mysteriously disappeared from the kitchen. I figured he'd just had enough of me and Blondie and our wacky girl antics, but....then,
we get to my room to turn on the tivo, and there's two puddin-paks on my pillow.
see what I mean? freaks.

Two females, two pudding packs, and a bed with red and black pillows. Just need the bad 70's porno music to complete the picture.
Or is that just in MY head?

you know, in person, the room doesn't look QUITE so garishly awful it does in that photo.
There's usually a huge pile of white pillows to balance the red and black (and no, it's not because I graduated from Maine South and Illinois State University--or maybe it is?) but he set the stage so we couldn't miss the joke.
because he knows how to edit, he does.
