A Different Kind of Grocery List

Although we have a paper grocery list, sometimes MOTL uses this erasable board on the fridge to write down what he thinks we need from the store. It is truly unfortunate that I missed out on taking a picture of the last grocery list that MOTL made for me. The previous list included some pretty nasty things like "sand meat" and things I wouldn't want like "plastic cops".

This new list is a little more obtuse. For instance, the first item is: "japs". Am I supposed to pick up some Japanese at the store? That can't be right. "Cheeze" just sounds yucky. I don't even want to know where that is. And the last one is like a lawyer joke gone wrong. When you ask for "torts" are you asking me to get sued or sue someone at the store? That doesn't seem like a good idea. Upon questioning MOTL about the list I discovered that he wanted: jalapenos, cheese, and tortillas.

Well, he could go shopping with you, or get the stuff himself, save the whole list thing. But maybe that's out of the question. Heh.

It's a devious plot to make you ask what the codes are.

he can make all the crytic lists that he wants. I only buy what is on my list. I don't ever ask what he was asking for until after I go to the store anyway. I am such a bitch.
