They come in threes...

Bad things.

My list for the week.

Number one bad thing. Sugar Free jelly beans. OMG. NEVER, ever eat these. Ever. Unless you like feeling like you have an intestinal parasite or really, really need to get a lot of reading done. If so, then feel free.


This information would have been useful to me before I ate most of the bag. And thought I was going to die. 8 beans? Try 35. Bad move.


Number two. Pool is closed. (Normally a great excuse for me to not flail around in the water like a sinking log trying to get my workout in) Sadly, it was the neighborhood pool. Ella's favorite summer pasttime. If you haven't heard why, you obviously have not been within 3 miles of Ella. "Mommy/Daddy/Mimi/Anyone who will listen...SOMEBODY pooped in the pool!!!" Big news in the 4 year old world.

Actually, I am assuming it was poop in the pool. Or hoping. The lifeguard told me that the pool was closing due to "fetal matter" in the pool. Please let her be wrong. Please let that be poop. She meant poop, I know.


Number three is done. Trainer at the track. That is never a good thing. But, now is (thankfully) done. Thanks for keeping me company, Lou#3. (Good run out of you, too!).

My sister is diabetic and so my parents have a ton of sugar-free treats at the house. I made a similar mistake with her Easter candy once....I thought it was God's way of getting back at me for stealing her Easter candy. I try to steer clear of sugar-free stuff (with the exception of the lovely Coke Zero).

"Fetal matter" hah. I used to be a lifeguard and that was the WORST aspect of the job (that and men's bathrooms...I swear the fathers NEVER helped their kids go to the bathroom).

I really don't know why that posted twice.

So you talk about how the jelly beans gave you diarrhea and then you go straight to talking about how the neighborhood pool is closed because someone pooped in it...

Hmmm....

No too hard to connect the dots in this post.

Absolutely hilarious. Still can't believe the package says that.

Oh no, that is unfortunate you saw the warning on the jelly beans after it was too late!

Looks like you are having fun at the track!

I had no idea sugar free stuff had that kind of impact. Good to know.

Great job getting through the track/trainer workout!

I wonder if Jelly Belly knows they are paying for a Google Ad on your Blog that is telling everyone their product is basically candy Ex-Lax....
