The 25/30 Celebration: Planning

On April 12, 2009 my husband turns 25, and just over a month later on May 15, 2009 I turn the big 3-0. To celebrate these momentous occasions we have created the 25/30 celebration. It is a month-long event filled with unique experiences, big parties and lots of fun! We are trying to plan out our month by coming up with some ideas for events and experiences. Here are a few that we have generated. PLEASE add some of your thoughts!

Announce a city-wide water balloon fight in Cleveland Park using Twitter

Bake cupcakes and hand them out at the homeless shelter

Throw out candy from the trolley that cruises down Main Street

Take a road trip to the Outerbanks and try hang gliding

Swim with dolphins

Throw pies in each others’ faces

Build a fort out of sheets in our living room and camp out

Prank call the mayor

Go to a restaurant that puts your name on a plaque if you eat the 5 pound burger/20 scoop ice cream cone/25000 calorie meal.

Compete in a mud run

See what happens when we take ten shots of espresso

Go on a hunt for Billy Mays in Greer

Learn the dance at the end of Slumdog Millionaire

Go to Iceland

What ideas do you have?

Excuse Me Ma’am, Is This Your Tampon?

I just had an incredibly embarrassing moment at Publix that I thought you might find funny. I was just running in to pick up some ground turkey for dinner. I used the express line because I only had one item. Since it was just after 5pm, the store was pretty busy with shoppers stopping in to pick up dinner-making materials. The cashier was a middle aged brunette that looked as if she was nearing the end of a long shift. Behind me were several men, likely on grocery-finding missions for their wives.

Moments after swiping my debit card a young grocery bagger ran up to my position in line, leaning down to pick something off the ground. “Ma’am, you just dropped this.” In his hand was a single packaged tampon. I’m not sure if the kid knew what it was when he leaned down to pick it up. Maybe he realized too late.

“Uh, no, that’s not mine,” I said. And that was the God’s honest truth. I did not recognize that tampon. I looked over at the line of men holding their purchases. “Liar!” they seemed to shout at me with their eyes. “You just don’t want to claim that tampon!”

I quickly grabbed my receipt as the giggles took over my body. Oddly no one else thought this tampon incident was funny. But hopefully you do, too.
