Walking Down The Store Aisle Is Reminiscent Of The Day I Walked Down The Aisle With My Papi

A simple trip to the grocery store always serves to remind me of the boundless love that Papi and I share and how it all came to pass. The aisles, practically brimming with symbolic reminders of our life together.

Papi went looking for some White Snuggles......and he surely did get what he was seeking! Obviously, I trounced the competition who advertises that a golden brown whole wheat equates to wholesomeness. Well, I guess Papi didn't want something healthy for him. Ha! Oh, wait a minute......

Papi and I shared nothing in common except the same employer. So, when he continued persistently pestering me, the resident workplace heathen, to go to church with him, I thought he was full of.......

(Well, not really. But they don't sell crap manure at the grocery store, now do they?)

And then, while only two months into our courtship, and many stomach lurching dates down at Pancho's Mexican Buffet, Papi proposed to me. Yeah, I know, that guy has some big......




Stop that! I can read your calculated little minds. You're putting together and computing short dating time along with a seemingly hasty marriage. Well, I most certainly was NOT ........
Nice And Easy just isn't my style. Rather, I'm more of a......

kind of gal!

Papi and I enjoy a glittery fairytale ending, and it's definitely not a classic boy gets girl yawner like Cinderella And Prince Charming. Neither does comparisons to The Princess And The Pea. Aside from the fact that I do re-enact the story everytime I serve split pea soup for dinner. Our story isn't even relatable to Beauty And The Beast, althoughPapi often calls me a beast. No, ours is a happy union of a salty white cracker coupled with a spicy Mexican tortilla. I'm so very glad that Papi likes..........
JUMBO BUNS!!!!

elizabeth- Papi likes a natural woman....that includes hairy pits. yeah, I think he's got some French ancestry somewhere.

Raesha- They're one piece hot dog buns so they don't split open and drop weenies all over the place. We love them! I had an actual Snuggles photo from the store, but it got lost somewhere in the computer.

Funny, in my case it's reversed I'm the spicy burrito (has to be a flour tortilla) and he's my little American hot dog (did I say little I meant HUGE)! :o)

mcewen said...

I'm still mystified by the snuggles even though I'm peering really close to the screen with my bifocals, but otherwise it all makes perfect sense.
Cheers

Cracker and spicy tortillas in harmony? It just goes to show that we we are all flour based products under the skin!
