Overheard at our house, grocery list edition

“Add edamame to the list.  I know we already have a couple of bags, but if the apocalypse comes, we’ll need some.”

“I think if the apocalypse comes, edamame will be the least of our worries.”

“Oh, no soybeans are important during an apocalypse.  Protein.  Fiber.”

“Seriously – if we’re quickened?  Swooped?  What’s the word?”



“You make it sound like a financial program.”


  1. Planning for the apocalypse? That’s planning ahead.

  2. Quickened???


  3. Marie, you should see us when we’re planning for the ZOMBIE apocalypse.

  4. Hmmm. Don’t think you’ll need them if you’re raptured; don’t you go off to the heavenly place there? I don’t recognize swooped, unless a giant Roc is carrying you off.

    I’d go for extra garlic, butter, and whole wheat bread. That way you can have some tasty garlic bread with your survivalist pasta, and just in case the zombies breed some vampires you’ll be all set at night too.

    Reminds me of the oldie-but-goodie “What is the one / two / five things that you always keep in your fridge?” question. I get to milk, butter, cheese, and then it gets harder.

  5. Oh, Shane – trust me. We’re NOT planning for getting raptured.

    Not sure I’ve ever heard that particular oldie-but-goodie…
