my inner teen is grounded

I am nearly done with [telling you about] the cute checker crush, partly because I imagine you're getting very jealous bored and also, I am concerned that the more I gush over him, the more likely it is he'll show up to enroll at my school next quarter. God in Heaven, I swear that is not even remotely funny.

So here is the last thing I will torture you with [probably]. I thought this was a pointedly hilarious question in a survey I took this afternoon:

From the list below, what is the ONE quality that your favorite grocery store offers that matters most to you? (Select one)
  1. Good prices/reward program
  2. Great selection
  3. Attractive/well-kept surroundings
  4. Convenience
  5. Friendly service
  6. Emphasis on healthy foods and nutrition
  7. Additional services available (i.e., pharmacy, bank, coffee shop, hot young checkers*)

I giggled at each answer, particularly #6 (the one I chose), because honestly. Whole Foods can devolve into a Wal*Mart/McDonald's and if the hottie worked there, I'd be selling my consumer soul. Unless he becomes one of my students and then frick. Pray for me.

*Um. I added that one.

We must be sharing a brain. I'm right there with ya, and I'm not jealous (there's enough to go around) or bored (what else have I got to think about?).

Keep 'em coming . . .

P.S. Awesome post title.

There would be one thing worse than him becoming your student--it would be when he came over to your house as the friend of one of your children. It could totally happen to you someday.

I would have to say convenience. Because I'm extremely lazy.

I love how you tagged your newest treasure, "groceries," with "cuteboys" in your Treasurelicious list.

Shouldn't you be listing the checker himself instead, though!? :)

Cheri - Thanks :) I'm glad you're not bored; I might not be able to abstain...(Stu tried to get one of the store aprons last night, to no avail).

Jenn - That makes me shudder.

Tootsie - I really wanted to say "All of the Above."

Martin - Thanks for noticing my list! I'm trying to be sensitive to my husband but making it generic :)
