Forgetting things, and the South

Have you ever had one of those days when you knew you needed to pick something up at the store, but you couldn't remember what it was, but you went out anyways, figuring you'd remember by the time you got there? And then you got to the store, but still couldn't remember, so you decided it wasn't really that important after all? And then you got home and remembered what it was, and it turned out that it actually was quite important? I did that today. The quite important thing? Toilet paper.

I was watching the news tonight with Shane, and he pointed out something interesting. You know you're in the South (with a capital S) when a man who was bleeding, beaten, appeared to have attempted suicide, and was the prime suspect in the brutal stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend is referred to on the news as "the gentleman fleeing the scene." Personally, I would have left off the 'gentle' part...

that's frigging hilarious about the "gentleman". And it's funny that you forgot about toilet paper. Can you do me a favour next time you're at the grocery store or at Walmart - can you look for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough poptarts please?? Thanks.
