[ - ] I just had a birthday and someone special sent me some Shari's Berries, the strawberries dipped in chocolate. I had them in the fridge but intentionally put them out on the counter for an hour or two to bring them down closer to room temperature and then went out for errands. My college daughter and a friend came home and found me gone. She called me and I said I'd be home soon. Came home and dd said "mom you have a major ant problem in the kitchen." About 6-7 ants had found their way to the package of strawberries and chocolate and were crawling around. I flicked them off and went to put the berries back in the fridge. DD erupted and said "OMG mom you are NOT going to eat those now" and I said hell yes, I am not going to let a couple of ants bother me, they just got here. She said in front of her friend, "I'll just throw them out when she's not looking" and I said "no you won't, they're mine" and I locked them up in my closet. She called me disgusting and said I embarrassed her in front of her friend. What would you have done? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Non sequitur, but this reminds me of a post from a few years ago where a mom went AWOL from her kid's birthday party and returned to find the cake gone. Her SIL (I think) had found ants on the birthday cake and had dumped the whole thing in her absence, without even asking. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] When I went to book a follow up massage the receptionist shared tips: book early (the masseuse is fresher, more energetic and attentive at the beginning of shift) and don't book more than 45-60 minutes (masseuse tire after about 30 minutes, and the 90 massages are 15 minutes of fluff before and after so it's just a 60 minute massage at best).
