Things that make you go hmmmmm.

So I was supposed to begin training at my new second job last night. I dutifully arrived ten minutes early, ready to get started. I could see how busy they were, so I patiently waited. And waited. and waited.

And finally the manager comes to tell me that they're soooo shorthanded this week, gee could I come back Saturday??

Well THAT makes sense, doesn't it? I want to work, you need people, but.... okay then.

Cabbages... the last time my mom went out to her farm, my uncle wasn't doing too well and had to go into the hospital. Mom called Aunt F to tell her and F replied with great concern ''Oh no! DO YOU NEED A CABBAGE????''

Um. Huh? Local color notwithstanding... does anyone understand the cabbage thing? Is there some significance to illness or emergency and cabbage?? We have no clue and alas... we recently lost Aunt F to a stroke, so we may never know.

And what is up with Blogger? I wrote out a post last night (and let me tell you, doing this on a handheld is a special excercise in stupid, i think... ) posted, saw the message that it was complete and then went to bed. This morning? Nada. My thumbs? They were irked, having done all that work for nothing.

I don't even bother trying to write a blog post on any kind of handheld device. I'm too long winded most of the time!!

You seriously post using a handheld? You have amazing stamina....and patience.

The cabbage thing.....NO IDEA.....but if Aunt F recently passed...I don't think it works.

Strange I never thought of cabbage as a calming kind of a food fried oreos yes cabbage no.

Blogger is a complete asshole. That's what.

Wow and I thought I was having problems leaving comments for others. I can't believe you wrote a post through a handheld. That's patience. Sorry blogger sucks so much.

Well, thanks to St Patty's day, I recently learned that cabbage, when eaten in large, boiled quantities, regulates you very very well. Painfully well.

Maybe she thought he was constipated?

Or maybe she had one more stroke than you guys knew about.

check your draft folder... maybe the post is in there? especially since blogger automatically saves everything now. just a thought.

no idea about the cabbage.

Isn't it great when you're totally prepared, but the rest of the world is flying aorund by the seat of their pants?

Also, I have not heard of this cabbage thing. I'm intrigued.
