Devil and Sprinkles

It’s the 12th day of June. It rained ten of the twelve days. I love rain. But too much of anything is never good.

I realized last night that a certain Verizon commercial stresses me out.

I grew up poor. We were always taught never to be wasteful. The pouring of the excess sprinkles in the commercial really bothers me. Some may find that commercial funny. It stresses me out on so many levels.

My OCD nature rears its ugly head when I least expect it – when I’m trying to relax in front of the television and a stupid commercial like that one makes me think of all the cleanup they had to do to pick up all the little sprinkles off the floor – and the thought of wasting all that good sprinkle when so many people in this world are starving.

Yeah. I got issues.

Meanwhile, here’s a photo of my little devil. She’s really not, though. She just likes to pretend she is with her little red devil horns. ♥

  1. What a beaut!!! (As my little F's Dad would say in his Northern English accent…)She's absolutely gorgeous!!!! The prettiest little pink devil ever seen 😀

  2. It's been raining all month here in Utah, too, which is so weird. It was nice at first, but I need the sun and some heat!! That commercial drives me nuts too. I wonder how many takes they did to get the shot right?? (aka, how many sprinkles were wasted??)

  3. aww g is growing up really fast! and i'm sure she gets her devilish side from you?i hate that commercial with the sprinkles too. mostly, it annoys because it's stupid. have you ever played 52-card pickup?i was asked that once. when i said no, he threw the deck of cards on the floor and said 'now pick them up.'the commercial reminds me a little of that. wasteful. and dumb.
