Thank You Very Much - Calorie Edition

Thank you for all the sweet comments on the last post.  I always knew you were a bunch of caring friends, but the comments reaffirmed that.  That last we knew of the injured boy:

He regained consciousness and was finally able to say his name (“my name is Kyle, I think”), but could remember nothing of the fall.  He had obviously hit his head in two places and when Mr. Daddy went to help secure him on the backboard, he complained of chest pain.  They were unable to locate his parents, but in true small-town form, people began calling:

Hey, that’s Ricky’s boy!

Ricky from the valley?

No – Ricky, Tommy’s brother.  You know, the boys who played on the state team that year.

Oh, the ‘90 season – the ones who look like twins.

No, those are the Wilson boys.  The ‘92 season… they played with Charlie’s kids.

Charlie from the mill?

Yeah.

Hey, you mean the one who lives over by the creek?  The last house before the bend where Johnny shot that 6x6 bull last year?

Yeah!

Ohhhh!  This is Big Joe’s grandson – I went to school with Big Joe’s sister.  She was a year behind me.  Red hair?

Anybody got Big Joe’s number?

 

…and on and on.

And in a twist that makes me feel comfortable to know that these people care: the fire department responders were the same ones who showed up to the scene of my accident.  Yeah, the same dudes who asked if I knew my name.  If I knew where I was.  If I knew that man who was standing outside the ambulance.

Yes, he’s my husband.

We’re sorry ma’am (loud guffaws).

Rach, don’t mind them, I went to high school with ‘em.

Nothing like a small town, I tell ya.

Thanks for your prayers guys!

Now onto our weekly free therapy session with KMama!

 

I present for your drooling pleasure:

tuxedo cake

To the high school kid who works at the Kroger’s bakery:

When I asked if you had anymore Tuxedo Cake, Thank You Very Much for telling me you did.

Not a problem, except that you then told me you didn’t know how to slice it and couldn’t sell it to me.

 

HUH?

I did not admit to you, but am now admitting to the entire internet (Thank You Very Much), that I drove out of my way from Redneckville to get me some of this insane yumminess!

See, I’d spent Thursday through Sunday within the confines of my home due to a lovely head cold that Itty Bit decided to be generous with, Thank You Very Much.

When I broke quarantine to get some medicine at the store, I drove a half hour to your place of employment because I figured Tuxedo Cake would fix what ails me, Thank You Very Much.

When you pointed me toward some Tiramisu Cake, I realized you just didn’t get it.

For sending me home without that particular brand of medicine, Thank You Very Much.

 

~

To Self:  Thank You Very Much for not making a scene at the store and resigning yourself to the massive slice of Tiramisu cake.

To Self:  The kid can open the refrigerator door.

To Itty Bit:  *sobbing hysterically*

I guess I didn’t really want it anyway.  Thank You Very Much.

 

(p.s. don’t give me that “who me?!?” look – the Lightning McQueen spoon was a dead giveaway)

I'm about crying for you. No one better eat mama's cake!!! I don't care how cute you are.

Thanks for linking up!

Shana said...

I am so gald the boy seems that he will be ok. I hate to hear about accidents and then not know what happens after them. I would be very sad about the cake too and you are right the Lightning McQueen spoon would be a dead giveaway as to the offender lol.

deepintheheartoftexas2 said...

I didn't stop by your blog yesterday. Praying for that boy and his family, Glad he will be ok. I have known so many ppl who can give up sweets, I am not one of those.

Not when they make desserts like that!! Don't mess with your cake!

Beth Zimmerman said...

Continuing to pray for Kyle! Too funny about all the small town people and the way everyone knows each other. What does Mr. Daddy do for work (besides Big Game Hunting)? Laughing about the cake except ... well ... you know ... Sorry Rachel!

K- floortime lite mama said...

I love everything you write darling
u r soooo funny

Together We Save said...

Praying for Kyle... scary!

Julie said...

Ah ha ha...Itty Bitty is one smart cookie. He know that sugar isn't good for a head cold! ;)

Foursons said...

Nnnooooo! Say it ain't so! Itty Bit what were you thinking?!

Rachel, as soon as Mr. D gets home today drive out to Krogers and demand tuxedo cake and don't leave until it is in your hands. And the punk who didn't know how to cut it? He needs to be fired. Seriously.

Glad to hear that boy seems to be OK.

Stacy said...

Maybe it was Mr. Daddy trying to defer the blame LOL!

I think I would have made a scene. Or told him that "I" at least was old enough to handle a knife, so hand it over!!

Tiffany said...

Are you sure we don't live in the same town? Cause that is exactly how every event involving emergency vehicles goes here too.

Nu'uh! Somebody messed with Mama's cake? Watch out!

Muthering Heights said...

*Gasp!*

Oh man...it looked so good too!

Emily said...

If he didn't know how to slice it, that was the perfect opportunity to just buy the whole thing! :)
