Hallelujas - Do you remember a post a while back about my tooth? Well, hallelujah, it's in! Well, mostly in. It's in there, but with temporary cement. I'm not sure when the permanent cement will be in, but for now I'm pretty darn happy! Bring on the corn cobs!
Bubble Butts - Sherri, you'll be happy to know that this post has nothing to do with you. :o) (For those who are wondering, go ahead and read this post and then check out the comments. Hmmm... I wonder who Very Sarcastic Speed Reader Lurker Person was...) No, this has to do with my daughter. My daughter is almost 7 now, and just starting to learn the joy of gum. She's been afraid of it for years. Why? Because she just didn't get the "don't swallow it" part of the equation. We'd let her have some gum and tell her not to swallow it, but she always would, then panic. One time (the little stinker), she swallowed her gum, but then continued pretending to chew so that we wouldn't know what she had done. But now she's big and has decided that she is gum capable, so her Easter bounty included a multi-pack of gum. This evening she was asking if she could have a piece of gum and I told her that she could. My husband chimed in with, "Don't swallow it!" She then asked why it was bad to swallow gum, a question she's asked many times, but this time my husband told her that if she swallowed the gum, she'd start blowing bubbles out of her butt. Never knowing if she can believe Daddy or not, she asked if he was serious. He fessed up, but then told her that it's not a good idea to swallow it. Of course, I had to start chanting "Bubble butt! Bubble butt! Bubble butt!" at her once she started chewing the gum. She didn't really appreciate it for some reason. I'm still kind of hoping to see bubbles come out though... Maybe if we gave some to the dog...
Target Practice - Okay, finally to the last topic. In yesterday's post, I wrote a formal complaint. While I would love to say that the Target bigwigs saw my blog post and decided to send me a big box of leftover Easter chocolate, it wouldn't be true. So for grins, I decided that I'd copy and paste my post into one of their "contact us" emails. Can I just tell you that they sent back their automated response in no time? Here's what they wrote back:

So, not only do they not have any candy to buy, they're going to taunt me by saying that it's in the Target ad this week as a sale item?! Unbelieveable! Kinda like pouring salt in the wound, isn't it? I think my favorite part is where they tell me that I should go speak to the Guest Service Team Leader. Yes, just let me loose on the poor pimply-faced kid standing behind a counter when I freak out over the lack of bargain candy. Target, I just don't think you're that into me.
