Random Thoughts from Gal in the Middle

I saw a couple of things yesterday that made me smile. Well, the first made me shake my head in disbelief (and mild disgust, if I am being completely honest) and the other one made me chuckle.

First, I had a meeting in Broad Ripple - which is a part of Indy that is a bit artsy, with lots of restaurants and bars. Basically it's a hang out place for those people MUCH cooler than I am. After the meeting, my coworker and I headed to Starbucks to debrief and grab my afternoon frou-frou coffee drink (I LOVE the treat receipt).

I happened to glance out the window and what did I see (sorry for the quality, all I had was the camera on my phone)...

Did you just do a double take? I did too. Here's a closer look...

Yes, that's a dog wearing sunglasses. Not only is it wearing sunglasses, the sunglasses are securely placed on its head with what looks to be specially designed headgear.

It blows my mind that we are at a place and time in this country where people are spending who knows what on sunglasses for their DOGS. Yikes.

The second sight I want to tell you about made me chuckle - out loud, by myself, in middle of a store.

I stopped by my local Walgreens for my weekly bargain shopping trip and these caught my eye. After my pirate post yesterday, I seem to have pirates on the brain.

Who knew a pirate's booty is really potato chips? Can you imagine the surprise of a rival pirate when he opens up the treasure chest and instead of jewels and doubloons he finds potato chips?

"ARRRRRGH, ARRRRRRRRRRRE ye serious?" At least, that's what I think he'd say!

I think I may need to get out more. Maybe I'll head to Broad Ripple. I bet someone there would enjoy my pirate jokes.


  1. After dark, I am sure you can find someone to laugh at anything you say! ;-) Last time I was there was for a bachelorette party.

    I remember saying that if/when I get married I do NOT want to be down here walking around with a pink pen** hanging on a string around my neck! Thank goodness they listened when it came my turn. We went to a girlfriend's house, sat in the hot tub, drank wine, laughed way too much (is there such a thing?), and made our own artistic renderings of said necklace object with Playdough! Too fun!

  2. The dog story is typical of what I've seen in that area. One day, I was there and passed by a cafe. A young couple were enjoying an afternoon Sunday brunch and had their baby carriage between them. But instead of a baby...you guessed it...a little dog!

  3. Don't want the dog to get a bug in his eyes. Then they would have to call the Vet.

  4. Better not let my HHBL see the sunglasses, he might want to get Zuma a pair!

  5. I get Pirate's Booty at the grocery store all the time. Yummy stuff!

  6. My brother-in-law (and this won't sound very manly) has a Shitzu (pronounced "shitshoe" in our house; think: lunch conversation).
    He puts doggie goggles on it when they drive in the convertible.
    I couldn't believe it either. But that horse poop-eatin' dog has a better wardrobe than me!!

  7. Just wanted to let you know that I gave you an award over on my blog tonight. Big Congrats!

  8. Ok, so now that I have cleaned up the coffee that I just spit all over the compter.. That dog is freaken hysterical. I can't stop laughing. Thanks for that!!!!!
    Have a great tomorrow.

  9. Glad I could enjoy that dog with you in real life! Sooo funny. Your post made me laugh out loud!

  10. You always crack me up! :) G is walking around doing the line from the Robots movie ALL THE TIME NOW; "Why do you call her Aunt Fanny?" "Well we can't call her Aunt BOOTY" or something like that! lol! Shake your own booty girl and you might catch you a pirate or two. lol
