The things he does for me...

Last night Eric and I stopped at Safeway on our way home from SouthCenter. We needed a few items, and wanted to get in and out swiftly. Safeway generally isn’t the most pleasant experience past about 7pm or so. We were in line checking out, when a lady behind us walked up with her arms full of pint ice cream. It dawned on me that I had failed to look for the Ben and Jerry’s “Schweddy Balls” ice cream; which is based on a Saturday Night Life sketch that we love to laugh at. The Rum ice cream and malt ball treat is intangible, and we want to get our hands on a pint, just to taste the hilarity. So I dash out of line and head to the freezer section, looking at the ice cream. Alas, I did not find my Schweddy Balls, but I the following conversation ensued after I walked away – Just imagine my very sweet hubby talking to a 65 + year old cashier, and a very ragged 40 yr old lady customer behind him to chime in – it will make you giggle.

Checker: “What was she going to look for?”
Eric: (not wanting to say Schweddy Balls) “Oh just an Ice Cream.”
Checker: “What kind of ice cream?”
Eric: “Ben and Jerrys”
Checker: “What flavor”
Eric: (not wanting to say Schweddy Balls) “Oh, well, have you ever seen a Saturday night life sketch with Alec Baldwin called Schweddy balls? It’s an ice cream named after that”
Customer: “Yeah Alec Baldwin is hilarious in that”.

I just about died of laughter when Eric revisited the conversation for me, I feel bad I left him there to explain my NEED for Schweddy Balls. The things he does for me…
