Thanks for sharing.

Too bad about the fish. I hope it didn't stain anything.

I can relate to your nursing assistant experience.

Rachel said...

The fish was one of those chewy candies (also called jaret fish). It did come off everything, it was just a pain...and a little embarrassing!

gmj said...

You are funny!

Bethany said...

Now we're gonna call you fish-butt.

Hey, Bethany once wore a piece of bread and butter on her backside...

I agree with your mother :)
If only you had been picking pears instead of cherries!

Tracy said...

This was a great list, Rachel. Your swedish fish made me laugh!

Rachel said...

T- Sweedish fish are chewy candy fish also known as Jaret fish. They come in green, red, yellow, and orange. The kids love them, so on occasion I will buy them.

kristina said...

That is a great list. You are funny. I talk with out thinking on occasion too.

Heather said...

This was a great list. The story about the Swedish fish (one of my all time favorites) had me laughing! I guess that's the kind of story that is not so funny when it happens to you, but very funny later when you are telling it.

Priscilla said...

You are very funny! I laughed hard! Thank you!
