Should I Be Worried?


With the current lack of income, we've pretty much cut out a bunch of our luxuries... like Starbucks for breakfast every day that Marshall is home... 2 fast food Dr Peppers for Marshall and I daily, and nightly Starbucks mochas.

Marshall is doing everything he can at this point and is still getting the same answer: Work is slim. So to boost our morale, we decided to watch movies every evening after the kids are in bed. With our Netflix membership on hiatus due to the constant changing of our credit card number, Marshall ran out to the local Hollywood Video to rent a movie. We knew it was extra money, but decided it was worth the $3.80 for an escape.

When Marshall got to Hollywood Video last night, the guy scanned Marshall's card and saw that it had been a long time since we had rented a video from there (due to our Netflix). So the guy decided NOT to charge Marshall for the movie! (I suppose to encourage our business again) You know what that meant right? WE SAVED ENOUGH MONEY FOR TWO DR PEPPERS. Yep, that's how we think here in the purple house.

So Marshall went to the local Jack in the Box for two Dr Peppers. The drive-thru lady only charged Marshall for two smalls but gave him two mediums. VERY COOL. Except, this happens often for Marshall at this Jack in the Box. Up until a week or so ago, Marshall would pick up a Dr Pepper every evening from this Jack in the Box. I've long suspected the drive-thru lady had a crush on Marshall, for all the times he's gotten a discount or a free drink. They've exchanged pleasantries and names. For the sake of anonymity, we'll refer to her as "Inappropriately Friendly Girl". Well last night when he drove up Inappropriately Friendly Girl and Marshall had a little conversation.

Inappropriately Friendly Girl: "New car?"

Marshall: "No, just driving my wife's car today."

Inappropriately Friendly Girl: "Oh. Hey is that Harry Potter there on the dash?"

Marshall: "Yep. My wife loves Harry Potter."

Inappropriately Friendly Girl: "I don't really care for Harry Potter. It makes a mockery of real witchcraft."


Oh HEY. Wasn't expecting that!!! That's all I need... for someone who has a crush on my husband to be into witchcraft.

Hmmm... maybe she already put a hex on me to have my credit card number stolen over and over and over and over again.



***Today is the last day to enter my Twilight DVD Giveaway. The winner will be announced tomorrow!!!

  1. Free or discounted is always good, we're in the same boat trying to stay afloat while Zach tries to get more hours.

  2. You still have your vibrant sense of humore in the midst of realness. You could probably become a free lance-columnist.

  9. You still know what the luxuries in life are-- a movie and a Dr. Pepper with the Hubby. You have a rich life Julie, despite the horrible hex you've been living through.

  10. That picture is hilarious! I know about having to cut out extras. I had a hard time cutting out my daily Starbucks run when we had some rough times a few months back, but I survived. (just barely) Hope that drive-thru girl removes the credit card hex soon! LOL!

  18. Well, a free movie and upgraded Dr. Pepper, all in one day. Cool. Is Marshall developed the ability to sway people with a vampire like gaze? That could come in might handy!
