Pavlov's boobs, a three-year old teenager, and sketchy smoothies

1. Pavlov's Boobs

Every time I've taken India to Costco, I've had to find a place to nurse. And so the last couple times I've gone, I've left her at home.

I know it, but my boobs, they do not. They now fill up as soon as I walk into Costco. They start looking around for a comfortable chair.


2. The Three-year Old Teenager

If enough years go by, it turns out that the adorable little three-year old daughter of a dear friend will turn into an amazing teenager.

And you'll meet her again, and while in your mind you've had this cute, bossy little blonde toddler image of her, the reality is that she has become this tall, lithe, incredibly beautiful teen. Who is the kind of girl who would totally have intimidated you when you were in high school, but for the fact that she's also genuinely sweet.

She doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up, but she knows she likes to write. In English and French. And she likes to take photos. And now she has a blog!

She's lovely. You will like her.

3. Sketchy Smoothies

Turns out a pumpkin + chocolate protein powder + wheat grass all blended up with ice water tastes as unfortunate as it sounds.

And no, I can’t quite explain to you why I thought it might be a successful combination. 

It’s kind of like when I popped a veggie burger in the toaster at work and then kind of flopped against the side and mooshed itself against the heating wires and caught on fire and then I had a hell of a time cleaning it out. Because they are meant for the toaster oven.

It’s not the same but it’s not that different. Basically, I do these things so you don't have to.

I guess you're welcome is what I mean.


  1. I don't know if the flavor of wheatgrass can ever be disguised... but if you're looking for a pumpkin smoothie, this is still working for us:

    I think the banana is key for any smoothie!

    1. Thank you! I love pumpkin and definitely want to use it in smoothies!

      I did so many shots of wheatgrass when I was trying to get pregnant that I think the flavor might always be tainted with fear and desperation for me. I pretty much hate it now.

    Thanks for the vote for the veggie polyglotographer! It is much appreciated. I had a good laugh revisiting the former post. Whats that HORRIBLE smell??!!

    1. Oh, Kris, I giggle every time I think of that. Poor G. And I'm so excited Carm has joined the blog world! She's so lovely!

  3. Hahaha! You keep making me laugh out loud. With snorting!
    The thought of sentient boobs. The image of the veggie burger on fire! Haha! Thank you for the laugh.


Tell me about it.
