At lunch, I was walking at a park near my office.

Did they stipulate that you had to eat them plain? We liked to dip ours in cheese dip.

I tried a Beggin' Strip once. It was DISGUSTING. Tasted nothing like bacon to me. I was very disappointed. The cat's food also tasted nothing like the way that it smelled.

I was a nanny, when I took the girls out people always thought I was the mom. I never did the bare minimum.

Since I used to hang in the hoity playground here, I got to know a lot of nannies. Some were really crummy, others were really excellent and the majority was somewhere in between. As with parents, I think there is a lot to be said for "good enough," but if a nanny goes above and beyond that is great. I bet your employers were happy ot have you, or at least I hope they were.

Hmmm...I wonder if beggin strips and the squeeze bacon are some how related to each other?

Since I'm not Homer Simpson I'm going to be staying far away from that one.

That's a very good point. Not everyone has the same M-F and 8-5 hours. And even when they do some parents get a day off!

And you know this to be true of EVERY nanny? Right.

>> Actually, I'm more focused on my child than eavesdropping when I'm at the park. <<

THANK YOU. I don't think I've ever paid a bit of attention to these kinds of things when I've taken my kids to the park. I wonder why anyone would bother.
