Irony

My girls went home with my folks for a few days following our camping adventure.  The kitten my dad had brought home for Popcorn last summer had kittens of her own, and they had to go see them.

Studmuffin & I came home and unloaded the pickup, failed to put a single thing away, and crashed on the couches.  Me with a trashy romance, and him with the laptop....

About 5pm he said, "Do you want to got to Raisin' Cane for dinner?"  Honestly, Dear Reader, I did not.  But my Grandma always said that if your husband offers to take you out to dinner, even if you have dinner cooking, you GO.  Take that meat out of the oven and stick it in the freezer, put your makeup on and GO.

So, I went and pulled my frizzy camp hair into a neater pony tail, slapped on some mascara, changed out of my holey camping shorts and put on my practically brand new American Eagle plaid shorts (I bought them the summer we moved in, which may be three years ago, but they're the newest pair of shorts I have) and climbed into the car.

Raisin' Cane's was closed. Darn it.  But we ended up spying this little gem on our way to Slim Chickens.



Now, granted a cat clinic all by itself is not funny. However if you view it in light of where it is situated....



Next door to a Chinese restaurant?  That is just priceless...

And yes, the second image is grainy.  It happened in the process of my rotating the image.  I know so little about editing pictures from my phone...But it is still ironic, right?

Hello?  Is anyone out there?

How is it that I live about a mile from this and have not noticed it? Just adds to the irony!

Love it! Feel your technology pain.

And adore your Grandma's wisdom!
