Get to Know Jill Just a Little Bit Better

Jack says I shouldn't share things like this, but I can't help myself. Plus, we're all friends here, right? No? Well, we really should be...

Last weekend I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things. One of those things was toilet paper. I grabbed a 12 pack and headed to the checkout. As I was standing in line, I noticed that it said "6 Rolls" on it. I thought "well that was stupid, there's 12 rolls in here - how did they let this get through production with that big of an error?!" I shook my head in disbelief that a multi-million dollar company could make such a big mistake. Um....yeah, the thing is I actually bought 6 rolls of paper towels and zero rolls of toilet paper. I actually, really, truly thought they had made a mistake. Because obviously that makes a lot more sense than me being an idiot, right? Right.

A couple weeks ago, Jack took me out for a nice dinner at a local Indian restaurant. Within minutes, I managed to spill my glass of wine all over the table. After the server cleaned it up, I went to pour some more---but (surprise!) the cap was on. I'm a genius. Now anytime there is something to be poured he reminds me that I should check the cap. Isn't he helpful?

A few weeks back as Jack and I were leaving a yoga class he says "wow, that car is awesome!" I look over in the general direction he was pointing to and say "the Ion? I didn't know you liked Ions so much." I cannot adequately describe the look with which that was met. Probably 2 cars down was a fancy classic car of some sort.

" weren't looking at the Ion were you?" Amazingly, he wasn't.

In my defense, the Ion was really shiny.

Paper Towels are so good though.

But 12 paper towels is a little much.

Jill is SO awesome! Let's look at what we SHOULD have learned from these stories:

- Jill buys TP. I assume Jack uses TP at, ahem, times. Jill will make sure that you never run out of TP... and, if you do-- she has LOTS of paper towels!

- Jill likes Indian food. Indian food is GOOD! Jill also likes wine. I'm told that drinking loosens inhibitions... I'm just sayin'...

- Jill does yoga. Bendy!

- Jill also can appreciate shiny, normal cars. She's not distracted by fancy, show-off cars. This means she may not leave you for some douche with more money and fancier things. Probably. (Though if those things are shinier...)

Jill is awesome.

Aw, well. I do at least 6 stupid things a day. I think I've met my quota already today and it's not even noon.

Jen said...

I've told you this once, if not a milliongazillion times. . . . you and me are soul sisters somewhere in this universe.

I am looking forward to the post when you tell us about the time you replied to comments on this blog while signed in as "someone else."

Jack and Jill said...

RS27 - You're not supposed to wipe your butt with them, thought.

JENBUN - I like the way you think.

HOLLYWOOD - We should probably never meet in person.

JEN - That is kind of sad for you. ;-)

PETER - Hey! Guess who's an idiot!

You and I are twins!!! LOL

Who the hell still drives Ions? That's what we need to know.

Chief Rock Chef said...

I hope rs27 was joking - paper towels are not as good, they swell up and bung up the pipes...

As for knocking drinks over, maybe you should tell us when you FAIL to know over a drink? :-)

Thanks for telling me about this blog!
