There is no significance to the order of these two adventures.
A couple of weeks ago we (Mr. Marvelous and I) went to Lowe's in Trussville, Alabama. Jack went with us. When we got there, we discovered something wonderful:
The Girl Scouts of Troop 464 in Trussville, Alabama were there! AND they had COOKIES!!
Three cheers for Girl Scout cookies! Now how in the world could you walk by and not purchase cookies from these lovely ladies?! Sadly, I did not write down their names. However, these young ladies are some of the most outgoing and fun Girl Scouts I have met. And they liked Jack. He was charmed by them, as well.
On another occasion that might have been before this or might have been after this (I'm not telling), Jack found himself here.
He had to wait a few minutes.
He looked around and realized that when folks in this room had to wait, they did this:
He thought the cake looked almost as good as the Girl Scout cookies.
Ah, Jack; you are about to learn a valuable lesson.
Eating too many sweets can lead to this:
Yes indeed, that is the exam chair of our wonderful dentist, Dr. Stone.
Fortunately, Dr. Stone takes uninsured patients
(Jack is too old ~ at approximately 243 years ~ to be eligible for our health care plans)
(Or be a tax-deduction. Sigh.)
Jack did have a good report.
Although our favorite hygienist did scold him a bit about how much sugar he has been eating.
She instructed him to brush and floss and let him go with a good teasing.
Jack took it in good nature.
Jack is now busy deciding what he needs to take to Vermont.
I'm not sure he is going.
I'm afraid he will make my pack a little too heavy
(Remember that backpack? So does my back!)
We'll see who wins this argument.
