Because last time I apparently didn’t learn my lesson.

And this time, he came home with only this.

All I needed were potatoes. But last night we were conversing about the lack of snacks in our house. Clearly he was so starved on the drive home that he had to dig into the Mountain Dew and pretzels. And that orange juice sure isn’t for his breakfast. It’s for something that begins with a “v” and ends in an “odka.”

        Hahaha, shopping fail.

        But don’t send him back out for them. He’ll somehow manage to come back with more mini race cars or something.

    I’m pretty sure your husband and my brother were separated at birth. We should ask them about weird birthmarks too, because they could just be the same conjoined person…

    It’s amazing what they will come home with. I’m surprised mine didn’t come home with nutter butters when I sent him to the store today. He has been talking about them recently.

    Hahaha… love it. When my hubs tags along with me to the grocery store, he always manages to sneak snack-y stuff into the cart. I can only imagine the junk he’d buy if he went all by his lonesome, without any adult supervision ;).

    Another reason why our husbands could be besties – honestly… this is what happens every time I send the Husband to the store. I’m sorry, aren’t the snacks I make for your from scratch enough? Guess not…

    Haha. See, you need to send a detailed list. My husband’s pretty good at following The List. Except you have to be uber detailed or you’ll end up with something you don’t want.

    For example: I asked for “chips”, thinking I wanted BBQ fritos or funyuns.

    He came back with generic Wavy Lays. I was a sad panda, but it was totally my fault.

    I love the posts about your husband. I try to never send my husband to the store. I normally get countless phone calls about exactly what kind to buy, where to find it, etc. And I get extra things. Things that are not on the list. It’s really better to just go myself.

    Reply

    • Jessica — November 22nd, 2010 @ 3:06 pm

      Oh my gosh… the phone calls, I get them too. Usually one, and he is fine. But come the second, third, fourth phone call, he is miserable.

    In all fairness, Mr. How Sweet’s thought “Baby, would you go to the store and pick up some potatoes?” was more of a suggestion. :)
