Maybe I should consider actually sleeping at night (I’ll have to take the issue up with Hazel)

At church today when a speaker was talking about emergency preparedness, he said, “The price of staples could suddenly triple,” and I honestly sat there thinking how easy it would be to acquire enough to keep a stapler fully loaded for a very long time. And wondering how he came to choose that rather strange and trivial example of a shortage.


My other exciting moment at church today was when Hazel’s mouth came in contact with my eye and left such a copious amount of spittle that when I wiped it off with a tissue, most of my mascara came off too.

    Again, I applaud your photoshopping skilz.

  6. I loved the staples quote because I was thinking of staples that hold your paper together too and totally not thinking of flour/sugar/rice staples. And I love the illustrations too, I have no idea how to do that.
