Pickles and ice cream

We had some friends and their kids over for dinner and a board game Friday night. We had lots of fun with them and our kids seemed to enjoy themselves with theirs as well. Since I was still working while Karen was getting the house ready, she e-mailed me a shopping list. It included the following items:
  1. Pickles
  2. Ice cream
  3. Lemonade
Given this list, I quickly wrote back to see if there was anything Karen needed to tell me. She assured me that no, the stork would not be dropping off another bundle of joy at our house any time soon and that these just happened to be the things on her list that she forgot to pick up when she was at the store earlier.

So it was with much amusement that I discovered that at our local grocery store, the pickles and ice cream are located in the same aisle. Weirdly funny, to say the least. I guess the marketing people recognize the need to cater to every constituency.

You know I was thinking about this last night. Our kids seemed to get along marvelously well. It doesn't always work that way, at least not with my kids or most other kids I've observed. So I think we lucked out!
