Have I really not updated since November?!

So much has happened since I lost the ketchup. By the way we never found it.

Recently I wrecked my Acura when someone ran a red light. Thankfully, all involved were alright. The one good thing that happened from the accident is I now own a Jeep Cherokee. Got a good deal on it too. We bought it yesterday morning. You know it is amazing how easy it can be to negotiate a great price when you have Benjamins ready to fan out in front of the vehicle owner. This is the first 4x4 I've owned, and I was happy that it snowed this evening allowing me to use the 4-wheel-drive for the first time.

You know how you misplace things sometimes? Well for me it's usually, "Where did the other sock go?" Sometimes I misplace a pair of shoes or my car keys. Well today I was at work and Amy calls me and says "Where's the Ketchup?" To which I reply "It's not in the fridge?" She informs me she cannot find the ketchup anywhere. I of course am the last one that had it and I have only three explanations for it's disappearance.

1. When I threw my Wendy's trash away Wednesday night, I also discarded the half full bottle of Hunt's ketchup as well.

2. Our evil cat knocked it off of the table I left it on and batted it around until it was lodged under a piece of furniture. (not likely since Amy cleaned the entire apartment today)

3. (Perhaps the most ridiculous theory) Sometime between Amy leaving for work and my getting up on Thurs. or Fri. morning, someone broke into our apartment and made off with the bottle of ketchup and nothing else.

What are your theories?
  • bekka
    I'm guessing you threw it away.... unless the cat loves Ketchup, and maybe he ate, or maybe your hidding it, so you can have it all.... :)

    the new AU coach is...Gene Chizik. Seriously. Yeah, he has a current record of 5-19 at Iowa State where he has been head coach for two years--his only head coaching gig. This past year he went 2-10. Do I have to tell you that the Aubie fans down here are NOT HAPPY.

    Google Maps says your route takes almost 2 hours longer. If Amy just wants to avoid seeing the Brewers, it's ok, you can tell me. ;^)
