Obsess Much?

I've been having a lot of thoughts this morning but nothing in particular is screaming for attention (except my citrus loving children who keep asking for more oranges).

Then this thought comes to me: I need to get a Dr Pepper. And I keep thinking about that wonderfully shiny can of deliciously satisfying Dr Pepper until I get up and get one.

Then I thought, "I bet I can find a picture of Dr Pepper online." You see, I didn't want to post the picture of John holding a Dr Pepper because it would bring back too many sad thoughts of betrayal and what not.... aaaand I'm feeling a bit lazy about taking a picture of my current can. (Besides, there's too much clutter around here this morning to get a clear, non embarrassing shot.) So I went to drpepper.com and found THIS:

Yeah, apparently they don't sell cans of Dr Pepper in their online store. Go figure.

**Excuse me while I go run the vacuum so that my boys can run around like screaming banshees......... OKAY. I'm back. I hope you didn't mind waiting. **

But while I was there, I discovered that under the entertainment link there is an online game (games are nice) and that you can watch a cute and funny little commercial for Diet Dr Pepper (which I don't drink). Oh. Sure. You can drink it if you want! I just realize that it's winter and our bodies need an extra layer of fat in order to keep warm in these frigid temperatures so a LOT of regular Dr Pepper and brownies help me out in that area.

HOWEVER, the most important discovery I made is in the "About" section. There is a timeline which shows you what Dr Pepper has looked like throughout the decades! You know, in case you were to time travel, you can know exactly what you're looking for without having to question whether it is a counterfeit Dr Pepper or something. I think it is a very thoughtful and informative slide show. I'm going to study it diligently, just in case.

ANYWAY... now that I have my Dr Pepper, what am I going to write about this morning? *sigh*

Hmm I'm kind of surprised he would say "shrink" for "drink." That's not really a phonological process most kids go through. I would expect "sink" or "swink," so hmm...
Tell him to put his tongue on the place that gets burned if you eat pizza. ("Pizza place!" is something I've yelled many times in therapy.)
And you just have to work on them making the stop. (/d/ is a stop /sh/ is a fricative.)
They have to build up air pressure in order to make the /d/ sound.
Really, you don't have to worry much about it, because blends like that aren't mastered until age 7ish because of the r!

You are funny! (boob nazi is too) Thanks for your comment on my blog. Good to know about the princess sleeves. (maybe the mystery spot was a cockroach or a broach or ?) Anyway, you could totally get a Dr. Pepper here. Click on the picture to see the machine. Ha ha! Cool blog, I'm following!

I have to tell you, that Dr. Pepper clock is almost as cool as the Hello Kitty toaster I spotted in Target before Christmas. Who DOESN'T want Hello Kitty burned into their toast?!

I'm with you about surviving winter by supplying the body with fat. That's precisely the reason I've been on a chip binge lately. I'm glad someone else understands. ;-)

Your blog is super cute. I plan to waste much of my day reading your backlog. :-D

Aw!!! It's ok! I understand. I've done that more than once. Then I spend 4 hours catching up! Haha!

Y'all need to quit it with the Dr. Pepper, you're killing me. That's hilarious.

lol! I get cravings for random stuff like that too and I can't stop thinking about it until I get whatever it is. Dr. Pepper is sooo yummy. I need one now too. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Sorry it took me a bit to return the favor.

I'm totally craving Dr. Pepper now. It must be because I was staring at that picture so long while you were vacuuming. ;)

Stopping by from SITS.

Hi! Just stopping by to say thank you for following my blog. Oh I am a Dr. Pepper addict! I have tried to give up the Pepper twice and did OK but fell of the wagon because well come on it is so good! I am so bad I actually lied to my Doctor about how much soda I drink. SO...I will probably try to give it up again but not right now. I also read about your Pepsi loving husband, how funny!
