Just a quick post here… I’m a little bit behind, a little bit stressed, and a little bit unprepared. So… basically, it’s Monday.
This past Friday I had a dentist appointment, where my jaw was stretched into unnatural contortions while 4 human hands were simultaneously scrammed into my mouth. Eight (EIGHT!) shots of Novocaine later I went home with a temporary crown, some dried tears on my cheeks, and an absolute certainty that I deserved some serious cocktail hour gin!
Being the brilliant gal that I am, I went grocery shopping for the week before the appointment, and had stumbled upon some Daiya wedges that were approaching their sell-by date, and were marked down to $1.99 (from $4.49!). Obviously I bought them all. Around 4 o’clock the Novocaine and stroke-like sagging face had started to wear off, and I knew it was time for drinks (now that I could finally drink without using a straw). I kept thinking about all that Daiya in the fridge and decided that some good old fashioned Cheese n’ Crackers would really hit the spot. I called Jason, who was on his way home from work, and asked him to stop and grab some crackers.
He came through the door 20 minutes later holding a box of Ritz crackers, and I was immediately disappointed. “Those aren’t veeeegaaaaannnn!” I wailed. He just stared at me. Pretty typical, actually… Anyway, a quick perusal of the ingredients list and a a google search later, I knew that they were, in fact, veeegaaaannn, and promptly got to stuffing my face with them.
Chewing on the other side of my mouth, of course.
Lesson learned: Don’t start whining until you check PETA’s Accidentally Vegan list. Also? Those Ritz crackers are good! And don’t even get me started on those Daiya wedges… RIDICULOUS!
