Roaring in Like a ....

A cell phone convo between a husband and wife, wife sitting in the Wal-Mart parking lot. Wife is breathless from hysterical laughter and loading the van...

Me: It is SO windy out here!

Coach: I know.

Me (still laughing and speaking quickly with an excited voice): No, you don't know! It's like the windiest I have ever seen it. We were walking out of Wal-Mart and Coco's coat was unzipped and it caught the wind like a sail and literally started picking her up and FLYING her across the parking lot. Her face was blowing and her toes were trying to stay on the ground... and then two bags with chips blew off the cart... and the Wal-Mart deli pizza I got us for lunch... and then I had to...

Coach: Wait...

Me: had too... move my body to the side of the cart because it started to tip, while I was trying to reach for Coco as she was actually REALLY blowing away from me like in a movie ...

Coach (interrupting): Wait.. Wait a minute...

Me: .... and some lady was watching the whole thing and stopped her van to catch the bags of chips and we were laughing and yelling because Coco was seriously literally blowing UP off her feet and she was....

Coach: Wait a minute! Wait... wait... slow down.. What happened to the pizza??

Me: It's fine, I picked it up after I ...

Coach: So the pizza is fine?? Ok...ok.. sooo we can still eat the pizza for lunch??

Me (my laughter is subsiding): Yes. The pizza is fine.

Coach (deep sigh of relief): Ok... alright... good. So.. I mean, of course.. I care about our daughter blowing away... AND the chips... but I just had to check on the pizza, I was worried for a second.

Me (eye roll obvious in tone of voice): The pizza is fine. We will be home in a bit.

I need to stop reading your blog at work. I laugh and people think I'm just weird because I'm in this cubicle by myself. I could actually picture your little one blowing away in the wind. Glad she is OK, OH and the pizza!

Bird - many of us are laughing in our little cubicles. Just pass the blog along and give your fellow cubers something to laugh at.

I figured everyone was fine by the way she was talking. She just sorta skimmed over the pizza blowing. Has anyone had that pizza? It is amazing, and very reasonably priced.
