Memories of the Wheel
For some reason I think this coffee is the bomb. It is way better than bitter and nasty Starbucks. I realize that I have almost just about thrashed my good name to many others, but I guess I just can't resist. Besides, it is much easier to just put the pre-ground coffee particles in the filter just after opening the can than getting the beans out of a bag, grinding them up, etc, etc.
The sad thing is that I bought this coffee originally a handful of years ago because I remembered the advertisement on Wheel of Fortune as a kid. Chock Full O' Nuts was always played (there was a song) before Mentholatum Deep Heating Rub. And the can is just plain attractive, don't you think? I must admit it tastes a tad strange next to some of the coffees I have been drinking lately, but I like it. I like it.
And once in awhile, life for a homeschooling house wife is very much like the job of Vanna White. The poor lass goes from one side of the puzzle board to the next endlessly---tapping on letter tiles. She used to manually flip them over. When I go from table to counter to table to counter endlessly for meals and school and whatnot, I always think of Vanna White. And from time to time I think of how she once said at the end of the show that she loves chocolate chips without the chocolate chips. And she uses a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on her toothbrush. Every time I make chocolate chip cookies I look at the sad blob on the cookie sheet that has a lack of chips and think, Vanna would like that one. Every time I put a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on my toothbrush (which is always the case) I think of Vanna and all her tile flipping drudgery.
Remember when people could pick prizes? I want the his and hers ski set!
Those were the days.
