At least once a day, I get an email from Bee. This morning, I got an email that had me snorting (I couldn't laugh out loud because it's my week to person the reception desk and I have to maintain a certain decorum.)
Let me back up, though, and explain why today's email from Bee is particularly worthy of mention. A couple of weeks ago, I got a catalog in the mail. That's right. Me. I got a catalog. I know? Bizarre, huh? Okay, I'll stop with the dripping sarcasm aimed at the paper industry and retailers and their systematic annihilation of the world's forests. So, I got a catalog from a company called LTD Commodities. It's one of those general store-type catalogs that carries things that have no useful purpose but to clutter your house with more crap Made In China.
This catalog was special, though, because it had a dog water bowl in it I just had to get. It's a pet bowl in the shape of a toilet! How classic is that? So, I ordered one for my parents' dog (this was before the whole brouhaha you read about in the previous post.) Said toilet bowl arrived in the mail yesterday. I opened it, had a good laugh, and then set it aside.
Today, this is the email I got from Bee:
Date: August 29, 2007
There's a toilet on the dining room table....
Maybe this is one of those "you had to be there" moments, but I died!
P.S. I accidentally ordered two of them. Bee wants to take the second one and either put brown M&Ms in it or unwrapped Tootsie Rolls. She says she almost made soup for dinner tonight and served it in these! Could you imagine a dinner party with these as the serving dishes? Hee hee hee.
