oprah + being mugged + chips

Sure it all relates...

I remember watching an episode of Oprah a long time ago that centered around what to do in emergency situations. Specifically, they spoke about what to do if you were ever mugged. One of the things that always stuck in my mind from this episode is to never allow an attacker to take you to a second location as that is typically when terrible things happen.

I kinda feel the same way about a bag of potato chips. They are ok in the kitchen, but as soon as you take the whole bag to a second location in the house terrible things happen.

Bad, bad analogy...I know. But, sadly, this is how my mind works.

LOL! Same for ice cream. Fine in the freezer... but the moment that carton is opened... well, let's just say the term "single serving" can be loosely interpreted. :-)

Made me laugh! Great drawing too!

He he! I like the way your mind works. I did think it was going to be a terrible story about how you'd been mugged. Instead a terrible story of how you had to eat a whole bag (??) of crisps. I'm sorry. I hope you get over your ordeal soon.

Oh, and BTW the drawing is very cool too.

You are pretty funny. On the other hand, it brings to mind a memory when my ex and I were walking home from the grocery store and he made a scene right on the street and I dropped a whole bag of chips to the ground. I'm glad I'm not married to him -- that crushed bag of chips could have been me.

Hahaha. Good one! Thanks for the laugh. Great story and great illustration. I'm going to bed now. I suspect I'll be dreaming about chips ... or Oprah.

When you don't make me smile is because you make me laugh! Great drawing as usual: essential and clean. Apart from all this, I've learn what LOL means, so many thanks to you and to Lynne, you're helping me to improve my english.

I never thought of it like that, but that is SO true!!

thats just it said...

i agree totally.
doesnt matter if the bag was half empty or completely full... there will not be much left to it 30 minutes later!
