A Moment of Levity

Because I don't know how many there will be later today and tomorrow. I'm on the phone with a client. Her name is Jubie. (no I didn't spell Judy wrong ... it's J.U.B.Y.) It was a very long and involved call. At one point I needed to call another client and check to see if they were missing some data from Jubie. I told her I'd call her right back. Actually what I said was, "Talk to you soon Jujube", click. Before I could correct myself. Man was I embarrassed to call her back. *edit ... they don't make Jujube's anymore????? Now I feel old and mannerless <-- totally a word. *sigh*

You almost got it Mit...it's Jujyfruits. The lovely gummy candy that gets stuck between your teeth that you can't dislodge without a jackhammer and prohibits you from conversing with others like a normal human being. So, given that description, I'd say you were spot on referring to your client as "Jujube".

:o)

wrong.... JuJube's are not Jujyfruits! JuJube's are those little tiny really hard gummy candies that really get stuck to your teeth.... I'm pretty sure Jujyfruits are the grandkids of JuJube's. just saying...

HA see there I go again, shooting my mouth off when I have no clue what I'm blabbering about. Thanks for the 411 CP!

You aren't old it's just that chocolate was in. This is the one time of year I let my Sweetart obsession out of the locked, bolted, welded nearly shut box in which I keep it. Yesterday, the day when all the candy should go on sale, I went looking for the Holy Grail of sale candies: the bag of 100 four-to-a-pack envelopes of Sweetarts...and there were none. None. There wasn't even an empty box or shelf space where they should have been.

Good luck on NaBloPoMo! :)
