Fleeced Again

Just bought this box of tissues.

After I opened the box, I saw that the top tissues were slightly dented. I would return the tissues for a refund, but I can't because I've misplaced the receipt. This is just one more example of Proctor & Gamble interfering with my peace of mind. Other examples, as you may recall, include the 1987 Pringles Cheese-Ums Recall, the flightless nature of Always Maxi-Pads with Wings, and the federal law prohibiting private ownership of bald eagle feathers without a permit.

I Shall Now Put My Life in Danger By Viewing a Midday Episode of Laverne & Shirley

Laverne & Shirley is on in 2 minutes. Regarding this episode, the TV schedule says "Driving Test. Squiggy needs help to pass a driving test."

Anyway, I'll let you know if he passes. This may be a close one. Pray for me.

UPDATE! 2:04 pm. I've already lost interest in this episode, but how about a lunchbox anecdote instead? Once, when I was in elementary school, I had a Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox. Sometimes I would accidentally leave sandwich ends or cheese pieces in the lunchbox overnight. The next morning, my Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox would stink. Also, one day a girl named Jonie barfed in the lunchroom and we all had to move to another table. Peace out!
