Saltines, You So Yummy

Saltines, You So Yummy

Sharing is caring!

Dearest Readers of The Chez Us,

I regret to inform you that Denise Woodward has fallen ill. Yes, once again this year, she has contracted a cold, fever, flu, or something. I dunno. Where is this coming from? We don’t even have chillans, and all that is happening is Saltines, You So Yummy.

I know you’re deeply concerned.  Who is cooking for Laudalino?  Is he getting enough sleep with all that coughing?  Rest assured, I’m ok.  I haven’t even noticed she has been sleeping on the couch.  There’s a down comforter and a TV in the other room, so all the bases are covered.

As for eating, I’ve rediscovered my love for ol’ fashioned Saltine Cracker. You know the ones from the fine folks at Nabisco. How can something so retro not be beloved by the open minded hipster community?

The bigger question is why are saltines so damn good, and why do we only have them when we’re sick? What magical properties do saltine crackers possess? What’s the secret ingredient?

How about that ginger ale?  Why is ginger ale only reserved for sick days? (And flying.)  Apparently Target doesn’t carry Fever Tree, so she bought Canada Dry.  Tragic, I know.  I’m more of a Schweppes kinda’ guy.  How can one resist its Schweppervescence?

I leave you with this “Oh baby just you shut your mouth. She says: sh-sh-shhh…” Free box of crackers (maybe) if you can name that artist.

Have a great weekend.

That video made me and Tay both laugh. Out loud. Actually the first time she watched it she jumped back and looked at her lap, as if the crumbs would jump out of Instagram and onto her. Heehee! I hope Denise is fully better!

P.S.- I had no idea that was called a selfie stick. I didn't even know those were a "thing". Why aren't my kids keeping me up on all this??

Quite possibly the best Instagram video I've ever seen.

Rachel, Thanks for the compliment. If that's the best you've seen, you need to watch more videos. :) For someone who is "just getting started" with video, you're stuff rocks. Let's do a hangout. I wanna talk to you.

Saltines *are* kind of awesome. Hope Denise feels better soon.

I hate that I know that thing is called a selfie stick. Sigh.

China Girl―David Bowie. So nice of you to fill-in, Laudalino. Love the story and the Instagram, and may Denise feel better soon!

Someone, buy that man a box of crackers. Wait, I'm supposed to. Send me the receipt and a self-address envelope, and I'll take care of ya'.

That song just happened to be playing while I was trying to write. I love that line, and it stuck. "Oh baby just you shut your mouth."
