You Bet Giraffes I Do!

Monday, June 17, 2013
Even though it looks like the clouds are being bossy right now, Godfather Sole is going to eventually take over.

Today is Ryan's graduation.  Unfortunately,  I waited until the last minute to buy him a gift.  In fact we stopped at a CVS pharmacy on the way to see if I could find something there.  There was a display of stuffed animals dressed in caps and gowns.  They had pockets that a gift card would fit into, But I thought, "What would he do with that?" And besides it seemed kind of silly.  I thought about a watch. But the watches CVS carries look like they came from CVS.  After going up and down the aisles, twice, I realized I wasn't going to find anything.

I decided I would get him a card and put $$$ in the envelope. Of course, because I didn't plan ahead, there weren't a lot of choices left in the Hallmark Graduation card section either.
Ross was waiting out in the car for me and by now we were running very late.
I quickly picked out a card that seemed unique. It was a Hallmark Signature Card with a price tag of $5.99.  I hurriedly read the inside sentiment. I didn't really understand it, but I thought Ryan probably wouldn't even read it, especially since there was money in the card.

As we continued on our way, I signed the card and re-read the message.  And then I got it!
That's when I realized that even though there are cute exotic animals on the front of the card, that doesn't necessarily  mean that what's written on the inside is always appropriate for every occasion.

 Allow me to indulge in a lot of cuteness.

She's NOT My Girlfriend!

Okay, okay, I'll Sign Your Puppy.


  1. Hysterical! Yoo made me laugh out loud in the stillness of the CA dawn! Great way to start the day!

    1. When I figured out the joke, I was so embarrassed. Geez, I have got to lighten up! :)
      I’m glad you enjoyed it :)

    1. It is a cute card. I think I should have saved it for him until he at least graduates from third grade, though.
