    #1. This is part of the “Princess and the Pea” syndrome. Everything has to be just so for herself or she is uncomfortable. She is, of course, just so very much more sensitive than the rest of us.
    #2. Lots of salad bars have hard-boiled eggs, bacon bits and differing puddings on them. Certainly they aren’t interested in letuce or bell pepper.
    #3. Sorry Dazz, but when Burl, well when Burl, er, anyway, the rest of the folks are going to have trouble breathing real quick now.

    Well, there was only so many times I could say these people were stupid, then the onus was on me. So I stayed away………Butttttt…………Timmy wearing a shirt with an LSU logo was more than I could bear.
    We are doomed anyway next Saturday, but this cinches it.

    These fat bozos sitting in a booth looks ridiculous. After they eat how on earth will they get out?

    Welcome back, Kott…er, Leaky! Missed you. Re: getting out of the booth, which is sometimes trouble even for someone of reasonable girth like me, reminds me of a story about Winnie-the-Pooh. Pooh visits Rabbit in his hole. When asked if he wants honey or sweetened condensed millk on his bread, he responds “both,” but as to not appear greedy, he says, “Never mind the bread.” He becomes so fat that he gets stuck in the hole getting out. Rabbit then uses Pooh’s legs as bars for hand towels until Pooh loses enough weight to extricate himself.
    PS: I saw the LSU on the fellow’s shirt and thought of you. I don’t think that’s Timmy.

    They are so obnoxious aren’t they?
    Getting a table by the salad bar insures it’s cooler.. but they are by the taco bar which is hotter, good for host for putting them there. Where is Ma?? After all didn’t she pay for this vacation??
    Joy sure has a tight grip on her purse. It’s big enough to put a lot of rolls in it..

    Joy is probably hot for two reasons. All the hot food she has stashed in her purse and the eating sweats from stuffing herself.

    They don’t, but they (1) want to conveniently steal a weeks worth of crackers to take home and (2) like to top off their lasagna and fries with the free Ranch dressing.

    I also wondered about the LSU and thought of Leaky, but I agree that that is NOT Timmy – if it were, Timmy would have gotten much older and larger in girth (from eating with Burl and Joy who are not his grandparents).

    In our local news there is a grandmother just 2 years older than I, murdered (presumedly) by her 40 YO grandson. As I was married at 21 and had my oldest at 22, and my oldest grandchild is 24 I think that family was dysfunctional long before the murder.

    Joy is clutching her purse suspiciously close and I agree there is some hot food in there, but rolls? Possible if there is nothing more fattening on the table.

    Who gives a rats azz if its Timmy, Jimmy,Bimmy or whom ever. The point is someone is crustwood has an LSU shirt on.

    And what the hell are you doing with an avatar of Ray Walston?

    I agree with your agreement that the guy with the LSU is not Timmy. I think he’s their unfortunate waiter. And that’s a terrible story about the grandmother murder. Not sure why Leaky is being ornery, and I like your avatar just fine!

    Agreed… not Timmy… rather the Bus Boy clearing the table… But he appears to be throwing away Burl’s plate… and is seems to be full….. ? ! ?

    Thanks, Finny! Leaky and I always like to kid, and he doesn’t realize that will be my before photo because I’m doing a mini-makeover to myself some whiter upper teeth, some clip in extensions and possibly more. I’m so slender now with this vegetarian diet that I look a little gaunt. I’ve even been trying to thicken my eyebrows with Latisse because I grow so little hair (even where I want it).
    Much as I love that long distance guy, I decided to go fishing.

    You need to be making your peace with God instead of all that foolishness with extensions and clips. At your age….indeed………you human mattress
