Here is a conversation that I overheard in the checkout line at the grocery on Friday. Enjoy!
Cashier: You know, they always say that the grass is greener on the other side. Greener than what?? [Smiling, pleased with his philosophical observation]
Customer: I know, man! You know that them people on that other grass are probably eating the same crud we eat everyday. It just might be a different color.
Cashier: Yea, but I bet they get honey mustard on theirs.
Me: [dumbfounded stare]
I was wearing my giant "penny" necklace that day. The cashier asked me if it was a real penny. Now, we all know, dumb questions deserve dumb answers. So...I told him yes. He asked how I got it so big. I told him I squeezed it really hard for a really long time. He totally believed me. Somewhere, that man is squeezing pennies, betting his buddies that he can make them grow. (I'm a jerk, but I'm ok with that.)
