I'm nuts about dead insects
Okay, friends, here is the offending cashew to which I referred earlier today. I showed it to Seraphim, and she too votes "dead bug."
Do you realize I could just as easily have bitten into THIS half??
One part of me never wants to go near another cashew. The other, more rational side (yes, people, I have one, believe it or not!) says "you've been eating cashews for, how long?, not years; we're talking decades here!" True enough, all that good eatin', and it took this long to nearly bite into a dead insect.
Matters not in this case -- this jar's still headed back for Kroger.
Ciao for niao.

I'm a 40-something snarky, yet wistful over-the-hill curmudgeon. I'm happily married to my best friend, I love my job, and am full of love and loyalty toward all my friends and co-workers. Everyone else is fair game. Talmadge Gleck is a gag 'alter ego' name I've used off and on for many years. Most names you see here are also pseudonyms, but if you know me, it shouldn't be difficult to keep track. Any questions, just hop over to "My Face" or "Bookspace" and shoot me a message. I don't bite. Most of the time.
