When Shelby was little, she would sometimes come to Mom and Dad’s for the weekend.
I always tried to be there because she was just so darn cute and so much fun!!! Molly & Steve were usually there and we had lots of laughs with that little fella.
One time I remember we were going to a Gospel concert. I’m not sure what concert but Shelby was along for the fun.
On the way, we stopped for supper at Frisch’s. Shelby just LOVED the Big Boy that stood out in front of the restaurant.
Marti did too at one time but that’s a story for a different day.
If she doesn’t kill me dead.
Which she probably will.
And that makes this my Farewell Post.
Thanks for the memories.
Anywho, after Unkie let Shelby talk to the Big Boy, we went inside and ordered our food.
When the waitress brought our drinks, she gave me a chocolate shake.
She gave Dad a chocolate shake.
She gave Mom a chocolate shake.
Shelby’s drink was in a child’s cup with a lid and that precious girl took a big ole drink.
Her eyes got big.
She turned to Mom and said……….
“I got water”
Bless her little heart!!!!
That baby watched all of us be presented with chocolate shakes and Mom had gotten her WATER!!!
She didn’t pitch a fit but I will never forget the look of disappointment on her little face.
So when she comes to stay the weekend with me, she gets whatever she wants!!
Chips & dip
I thought of poor little Shelby today when I went to Wendy’s for lunch.
I’ve been trying to eat better these days so I ordered a small water.
Now, for some strange and odd reason, Wendy’s has decided that it would be great fun to have ONE machine dispense about 172 flavors of drink.
I don’t know why they did this but it gets on my ever-lovin’ last nerve!
For one reason, when the dude in front of you finishes getting his drink and you stick your cup in the machine, whatever sugary yuck he was getting now is dripping on YOUR hand!
I don’t want someone else’s drip on me!
So today I remembered to let it drip a minute before sticking my hand in there.
When it appeared we were drip-free, I put a little bit of ice in my cup and selected “Water”.
And, sure enough, water came out.
But why was it reddish?
Dump that out.
A little ice.
Now it’s pinkish.
Okay, so not only do these machines drip on you but you also get whatever gross drink the dude before you selected that’s still left in the hose.
I don’t even what to think about what all else is up in that hose!!
Next time I’ll be as smart as the Mr. and bring my own drink!!
Or just get a Frosty. 🙂
