It was a pretty uneventful day, but since SOME PEOPLE (looking at you, MommyProf) have mentioned my lack of posting in public forums, I am trying to to better. Do you see what you were missing out on? It's really hard to stop reading, I bet. I bet the suspense is killing you to know what's next. A not-so-shocking tease: It involved a grocery store. Brace yourself.
I'm pretty sure the two teenaged boys who checked me out - upon rereading, I will clarify I mean using a cash register, not looking at my goods - at Kroger were not at all impressed by my "Reading is Sexy" t-shirt. My clue came when one pointed at my shirt and said, "Seriously?" to the other. I'm relatively certain that was directed at my lack of, um....appeal. Sadly, that was post-shower too. Ah, well. I was just excited that I only spent $28 on groceries this week and saved 55% in the process. Go me! And, SheSpeaks sent me a $10 Amazon gift card today too that I added to my $25 Amazon money from Swagbucks. I am rolling in free money.
Hey now, speaking of, if you aren't doing Swagbucks, get on it. It's so easy - just use it instead of Google and earn money for searching. I've been using it for about a year and a half or so and I've earned eighteen $5 cards to Amazon. I would tell you how much money that is, but I'm too lazy to multiply.

We have spoken with Country Creek PD several times. They have interviewed this man in the alert about 10 days ago. Country Creek Police determined this man committed no violation and is no threat to anybody. They are familiar with him and where he lives. The complaint is that this man talks to himself using a puppet and he ride around the North HeeHaw /Country Creek area in his truck. He has not been seen and Country Creek Police have not had any calls about him in almost two weeks.
There is an email making the rounds advising this person is a registered sex offender in Farmtown. The person that was identified in the red Pickup and the sex offender who lives in Farmtown are two totally different people. The man in the truck and the man identified as the sex offender on the email link have different names, they just both happen to be older white males.
So, once my hyena-like hysteria subsides, this is where I'm confused. Are we concerned that there is a sex offender driving around? Are we worried that people are confusing these two fine gentlemen? Are we worried that puppet dude is missing? I can't tell if this is an APB or an Amber Alert. I'm confused by the fact that puppet dude has been MIA for two weeks, yet the PoPo talked to him ten days ago.The capitalization of Pickup leads me to wonder if there is a missing vehicle or just a generic pickup, as opposed to the more specified Red Dodge Dakota. Or is this just a commentary on the fact that "they just both happen to be older white males." Is this a warning against racial profiling? And what about this puppet? I just want to read it again and again, but everytime I do I find another grammar error that makes me laugh some more. I would love to hear any theories you may have come up with!
