Forgot one thing from yesterday! I stopped in the first town to gas up, and went into get myself something to drink. In typical Lois fashion, I was craving buttermilk. So I bought a carton. (It’s a family thing — we used to buy the cartons of Lucerne buttermilk, stick straws in, and that was our treat. Till Lucerne prices jumped real high.) Then, in typical family fashion, I proceeded to rack my brain and try to remember if there were straws in the car from the last time we had buttermilk. In typical family fashion, I couldn’t remember. In typical family fashion, I decided to buy a pack anyway.
Only, this incident was different from typical family fashion when I got to the car — there were no straws there already!! YES!!! I was right! This pack of straws will NOT be going into the pantry with all our other extra packs!
