parenting tip #366

(Note – This is not an ad for Combos.)

I lived on Combos as a kid. Not as a meal, but as a snack. Name a snack you loved as a kid that your kids hate. Tell me in the comments.

I took this photo inside my local grocery store because I didn’t have/didn’t want Combos. I wrote the note before going into the store, casually walked to the high fructose aisle, slapped this note onto the bag and snapped the photo.

I kept looking over my shoulder THE ENTIRE TIME. Why? Because I didn’t want anyone from the store to see me. I didn’t want to get caught committing the crime of…

I just didn’t want to get caught, even though “getting caught” carries zero repercussions.

Scenario 1

Grocery Store Worker: “Did you just take a picture of Combos?”

Grocery Store Worker: “Ok.”

Scenario 2

Grocery Store Worker: “Did you just take a picture of Combos?”

Grocery Store Worker: “Stop.”

Scenario 3 (that’s playing in my head)

Grocery Store Worker: “Did you just take a picture of Combos?”
Me: “Yes.”
Grocery Store Worker: “CODE PIZZA! WE’VE GOT A CODE PIZZA!! STRANGE MAN TAKING PHOTOS OF SNACK FOODS. LOCKDOWN THE FRONT DOORS!”
