I know some people have a thing about redheads. I've had people say to me, "Oh, I'm so glad I never had redheads!" (As I sit there with my two red headed babies) I've had people say, "Oh, I ALWAYS wanted red headed kids!" Redheaded babies just evoke LOTS of emotion in certain people and they feel the need to come tell you about it.
(Tangent Alert: I had a "friend" tell me one time that she was so glad that she didn't have a redheaded boy because she had never seen a cute redheaded boy. And my son was sitting right there. And she knew I was married to a redheaded guy. THINK PEOPLE. THINK.)
So today at the grocery store (and if you've already heard this story, you can click away now if you want), an elderly man came up to my kids and said, "Hey, I see you've got some carrot tops." (Me cringing) Then he proceeds to call my son a carrot top to his face about five times. (Me cringing more) I finally said to myself,"Lord, if he says that one more time, I'm going to have to say something to him. And it won't be nice. Amen." Right after that we parted ways so I didn't have to go to kicking an older man in the nuts.
But seriously, people! I know he wasn't trying to be rude but come on. I guess what bothered me was that he was saying to my kids.
Also at the store, I accidentally bought grapes with seeds still in them. I mean, why do they even sell those? Does anyone go to the store and say, "Well, I really was wanting grapes with seeds but all I see are these useless seedless grapes!"
Carrot tops or not, I think they're pretty darn cute.
