Ok, so I just read that and was trying to hold back my giggles, and Chris ran in from the other room because he thought I was crying. (Just made the whole thing more funny.)

Gah, that story is priceless!!! Reminds me of the time that my uncle was dating a Barbie doll, and brought her to my grandparents house. When she saw that the guest bathroom had a black toilet, she said, "Wow! How did they get black water inside it?" I thought that was the dumbest thing I'd ever heard. I was 8. ;)

Missy

Oh, that poor guy. That would pretty much be a deal-breaker for me too.

That is funny. I have a friend who was watching the Calgary Olympics with his wife. She asked him : "where is Canada, exactly?" He said: "you know that big place above America when you watch the weather? That is Canada." She's his ex-wife now.

And the best thing of all is, you overheard it and immediately had two thoughts: (1) I have to remember this VERBATIM so I can blog it, and (2) I Must have a photo of these ginormous vats of syrup to accompany this entry! Right? Am I right??

Meg

PS, love the reference to one of my favorite Elvis Costello songs in the title.

Gloria

Please tell me she wasn't blonde!!!

Big Hair Envy

Do you think that she knows that most people don't get their homemade chocolate chip cookies out of that big plastic tub with dough inside? Bahahahahaha!

Priceless!

Andrea

You just can't make this stuff up. Just a riot. Thanks for sharing!

Nat

Nice working in a little Elvis Costello.

Jen Machado

Hilarious!! Should have made a video of that one!

Ex Marine

Ha ha...another example of why hell will meet the hand basket soon enough...Maple is a color and a tree and a syrup??? We're doomed people...

But as a serious tip from an old New Englander, don't buy syrup in plastic bottles unless you like Dioxins leaching into your system. Glass bottles or nothing!!

Call off that wedding, Mister!

Suz Broughton

Thanks everyone for the comment...and for the tip, ex Marine!

Ok, Where Was I?

I do have a brother and he looks just like that guy. Funny story!

Debs

I don't have a brother, but the girl sound like my sister. Maybe it WAS my sister...was she wearing a Juicy sweatsuit????

MommyTime

Wow. This is awesome. Sad. But fabulously written, and, seriously, if I'd been dating her, that's when it would have died too (not that I date women, but you know what I mean): it's hard to date a beautiful face that has no brain cells rubbing together under the perfect hair.

LOL! This reminds me of a story: My office mate (who yes, just happens to be blonde) held up a bottle water one day and asked me, "do you know how much water is in this? I'm trying to drink xxx number of ounces per day." I said, "I don't know, look at the bottle, it should tell you."

At this point she held up the Dasani and replied.....wait for it...

"It says 8 Florida ounces." HUH?

"Do you mean "fluid ounces?!"

"oh, yeah..giggle..giggle.." hair flip...

sigh..that one was a classic.

Doug L.

Now, how pretty was she EXACTLY? This might not be a total deal breaker for me. Were the cookies from scratch? Talking endlessly about your cat is a deal breaker for me. Pretty much just owning a cat will kill it for me.

that girl

was it Jessica Simpson by any chance?

LuckyMe

I just love your angle on this story, "I watched their relationship die right there"

I almost missed the Elvis Costello reference. So glad one of your commenters pointed that out!

Funny post, Suzanne!

Sara

PEOPLE! I swear...they just blow me away!!!

This all reminds me of a blonde joke...

A blond hears on the news that 2 Brazilian men die in a skydiving accident. Upon hearing this, she cries, "OH MY GOD! How many is 2 Brazilian?!"

Ed Snyder

To be fair, most so-called "maple syrup" has nothing to do with maple trees. If they say "Maple Syrup" like the ones in your photo, then (in the US at least) they have to be concentrated maple sap. But most commercial syrups don't say that, instead saying "Maple-flavored Syrup," "Pancake Syrup," or something similar. These are primarily high-fructose corn syrup.

Bryce

This is an awesome story.

Christopher Wren

Hilarious. I remember the deal breaker for me with an ex in late high school... She said "pie is nummy". She also said "What's USC"!
