Signs that a young person is living at home again.

I asked running son--who came home from the wide, dangerous world just before Christmas, then left to visit his dad in Lousiana for two weeks, but will be coming home again tomorrow for about 6 weeks until he races off again, this time to Beijing--what he wanted me to buy at the store. You know: provisions. Here's what he said:
Nacho Spicier Doritos
Frozen Pizzas
Ham and Cheese supplies
Tortilla Chips
Fruit Snacks
Hot Dog Stuff
Are we out of Ketchup? I think so
Gram Crackers
The Chapelle Show
Apple Juice
or some other exotic Juice

That should be good, thanks for looking out for me
You are totally welcome.

  1. I want to know what kind of exotic juice you picked. Guava? Or is cranberry exotic to the young? Or possibly a blend?
    I'm off to drink some pomegranate juice though I fear that it is mostly sugar with some extract thrown in for color.

  2. welcome home, Walker!

  3. This post should have been entitled "Why we don't let our sons do the shopping!"

  4. This reminds me of Elf's list of food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup. But in son's case, it's corn, corn chips, doritos, hot dogs and cheese. He's young. He can do that.
    Also, how did the Chapelle show get on that list?

  5. I'm with Dr. Write. It looks to me like all of the young male food groups are represented here. Tortilla-based products, cheese-based products, meat-based products, and sugar-based products.

  6. The Chapelle show item is what made me laugh the most. Also "ham and cheese supplies."
