Ok, I just have to mention this before I frantically start tidying up the house before my dinner guest arrives. When Deaner and I went to the thrift store on Saturday I happened to eye this little gem up on the shelf. For those of you not up on your bottled water skillz, this is a bottle of Voss water. Empty, I might add. Now, I don't know about y'all but I don't think I would ever purchase an empty used bottle of water. For $3!!!! I doubt that it cost that much WITH the mineral water in it! I am going to just have to chaulk this one up to someone accepting it without knowing what it really was. Otherwise I am going to start saving my Evian water bottles and selling them to the thrift store. I also feel like telling the hotel restuarant owner that someone is stealing his big beer mugs and selling them to the thrift store as well. I mean, I know they belong to the restaurant as I ate there for 5 months straight! Lesson learned, you can sell ANYTHING to the Wiesbaden Spouses Club Thrift Store.

Now I am off to finish up dinner and straighten some things up!

Hahahaha! I am dying over here with laughter. Be sure to save everything now, you never know how much money you will make off mineral water bottles and stolen mugs!

P.S. I thought I would let you know that I told my fiancee about your story way back when about your friend who found a rock in her beans at the mexican restaurant. He thought it was the funniest thing he had ever heard and now when we eat beans at a mexican restaurant, one of us always says something about "Well, sometimes there are rocks in the beans." Keep your funny stories coming. :)

That is totally hilarious. My husband is ex-Air Force and often pokes fun at the little things that make the military so "special". This is surely one of those examples. I had a great laugh from this, thanks.
