I wonder how much Mike and Carol spent on groceries

Remember the good old days when you'd come home from school, have a bottle of Pepsi, some chips, and watch Brady Bunch, Gilligan's Island, Get Smart, and The Beverly Hillbillies? Unless you did something different. Then remember that.

I never realized that a kid could eat a week's worth of groceries from 3 to 5. Hoo boy, I realize it now. Riley has been home 15 minutes and has eaten a muffin, a peach, and is now on his third cereal bar. Carly ate half a bag of Cheetos and drank a can of pop, of course.

Make that his fourth cereal bar.

Oops, took me too long to think about my next sentence. Now it's number five.

Wouldn't you like to have that metabolism? I am so jealous. And totally broke.


  1. Holy moly! That's really impressive! Yes, I wish I had that metabolism, and yes, those are exactly the shows I watched every day after school :- )

  2. Metabolism, schmabolism! I can eat that much (and sadly, have)! And I need to buy new clothes cuz I keep growing, too!
