Short Thought 100 (chips & martinis)

I was perusing the snack aisle in the grocery store, just for kicks, as I rarely (let myself) buy anything, when I saw potato chip packaging I’ve never seen before. I have seen 1 ounce bags, but these were half ounce bags! What is that, 5, 6 chips?! I had to laugh.

You know that old line about making a dry martini by whispering “vermouth” over the glass? I’m thinking the next step in chip production will be whispering “chips” over the bag and sealing that sucker closed.

    So I noticed I hadn’t seen any of your posts in my reader for a while and I thought to myself “where the hell is Collette?” You are easily a favourite blog of mine and one of my favourite people on the interwebs. So I had to look up your blog because for some reason I had unfollowed you. I did not do this. And I don’t know hy this happened, but I have amended this situation.
    Please don’t think I stopped following you.

      Thank you John! This is as good a time as any to reiterate that I feel the same. You stand out as a unique, thoughtful, witty voice on WordPress, both in your blog and comments you make here and on other people’s blogs. I am always curious and interested when your avatar pops up – anywhere – to see what you’ll have to say.

      The unfollowing business happens – I’m regularly unfollowed from “Victo” and I don’t know why. Like you, I start to think “gee, she’s been quiet…”

        Hahaha. Well, I’m relieved. If I suddenly go quiet, no likes or comments on your posts, leave me a comment like “What the fuck dude?” and I’ll get my follow back on. I think this is the first and only time this happened to me but I know it happens to Victo.
