Pickle Day

It's Wednesday and you know what that means - It's Pickle Day!!!!


Dancing Pickle

Ok, now I know that you're thinking I've really lost my mind...but not completely. You see, from the moment I could speak, I announced that Wednesdays and Saturdays were pickle days. I don't think I was really making any kind of political statement. As you may remember from a couple of posts ago, I'm a picky eater. I think I was really just trying to justify my love of McDonald's hamburgers despite the fact that they always automatically included a pickle, which I did not particularly care for. I figured I had to give that pickle a shot, but only if we happened to be at McDonald's on a Wednesday or Saturday.

Well, flash forward thirty years and of course my parents and any others in my life that know about "pickle days" have never let me live it down. I have actually developed a taste for pickles since then, but I have to be in a certain mood.

For example, last Wednesday Hottie Husband and I were eating lunch at a deli and my sandwich included a pickle on the side. He tried to insist that I had to eat the pickle since it was indeed Pickle Day. I tried to explain to him that eating a pickle on Pickle Day wasn't mandatory, but optional. It was just an opportunity to eat said pickle if I felt like it.

Then I went grocery shopping on Sunday and picked up a jar of pickles. On Monday I decided that I felt like eating a pickle. HH caught me in the act. "It's not Pickle Day!!!" he insisted. Well, yeah, but I felt like having a pickle.

HH just doesn't get it. I made the rules, I can break them, right?

Oh yeah, I also can't eat a grape unless a bell rings. Another long story...

How funny --- As a kid I only ordered the hamburger at McDonald's because of the pickle.

VERY quirky! I love it...and making your own decisions f-ing rocks (I'm finally deciding)....even if it is breaking the pickle day rule! Didn't you feel like you were being such a bad girl?

I have quirks as well, but not so much about food, more about cleaning. Oh, but if I take a coffee to work (either make it at home or drive through and pick one up), I won't take the first sip until I am at work and settled into my desk.

Hooray for pickle day!

I still don't like pickles and as a kid, it used to infuriate me to find them on my mcdonald's cheeseburger! ;-)

I have a fear of pickles. Similar to my fear of things with tiny eyes.

I just made 5 gallons of homemade pickles. They are yummy but I am sure they will last me all year.

And my husband always gets frustrated when I break rules. I am awesome at breaking rules!

So funny! I think I proclaimed Tuesdays and Sundays No Pickle Day, so I could toss said pickles in the trash without feeling wasteful.

Over from I Pick Pretty. We have sushi fridays. But, I must say I love sushi and could eat it any day of the week.
