I Am A Thief, But Not a Good One

Today I rang up my prepared tuna fish as a lower priced item at the grocery store*. I was caught by the deli police and told which was the right key to ring it up. I am glad my children weren't there to see Mommy-the-thief in action, which may have scarred them for life.

I once stole a caramel** from my neighborhood drugstore when I was about 6. I hid it in my jewelry box (good spot dummy) and had a stomach ache for days thinking about how wrong it was. Then I threw it out and willed myself to never think about it again, because if I didn't have it in my possession then it was ok. Years later the memory came flooding back and I admitted to my Mother about my stealing ways.

Apparently I don't learn.



*The semi deserved it because they had no candy apples.

**(Is this pronounced cara-mel or carmel? I vote caramel. Plus why the fuck is the word gray spelled with an a, or an e? I vote for a)

  1. THIEF. I'm telling the tuna patrol on you. (heh heh)

    It's CARE-UH-MELL.

    And you know what ... I absolve you of your sin. I'd have thrown a tantrum in the store because there were no candy apples. Bastards.

  2. When I was about 7 I was in a candy store with my mom. She was buying some chocolate for our relatives in the US, and I was starting at some chocolates, thinking of whether or not I should steal some. I had stolen anything in my life, but they looked so good, and I wanted them so bad. I stared and stared and stared for about 3 minutes. Just as I was ready to go grab one, a woman who worked at the store came up and gave me a chocolate. Since then I have never stolen anything.

    Actually that's not true, I stole mach 3 razor blades last year because those fuckers are so expensive!

  4. ok, so if we're all getting confessional and all...

    i stole something. it was really bad of me. i didn't think it was going to be all that bad, but it was. i was taken back to the store and made to give it back, my friends and their mom just happened to be there too.

    i hated my mom for it. but learned a valuable lesson...if you steal, don't get caught!

  6. opaco, even if you don't get caught you get a stomach ache. That sucks.

    Smussy, so you were the big poodle owner. Interesting. I know they do bark One lived by us and he and his poodle brother would bark at me constantly when I would be by their house.
