Overheard while buying hummus.....

Two women were eyeing a bin of bargain priced canned olives.

One said to the other: "Ooooh, grab some of those......I sometimes like to make fancy salads....."

Does that strike anyone else as humorous or is it just me?

I'm sorry but I have to say it. That is so Utah. Ergo, humorous.

My friend pointed out that I say "fancy" too much.

But I'd have to agree with that lady. I add pomogranate seeds to my strawberry salads to make them a little special-er.

Totally funny and something I would totally say. Totally. As well as special-er.

Strawberries and pomengranete seeds? Totally merits "fancy". Black pitted olives? Pretty standard, me thinks.

Use fancy all you want. It's a good word.

The bargain bin was in Smith's, right? I confess I bought two cans. But i just stick them on the ends of my fingers and eat them. Opposite of fancy. - The Other Sarah

sarah- my long lost sister! I was going through old comment on my blog, and just noticed yours! So I had to come visit your blog. Just for the record...I think this olive comment is hillarious! We always have seen eye to eye and random things like that :) Scott and I were just saying the other day we needed to get our pictures taken, and we wished that you lived in New York City! Well Keep in touch!
