Shovelling...

Whenever all the snow of Northern Michigan starts to get me down, I just imagine it's all mashed potatoes and the shovel is my spoon.

Actually, that's a lie. I don't like mashed potatoes. You'd be amazed how much this confounds people. Trust me, I don't like this quirk. Every normal person LOVES mashed potatoes. It's a bitch explaining it to people. In fact, I only like potatoes in fry or chip form. Go figure.

I'm with you on the mashed potato thing: yuck. I also only like potatoes in fry or chip form.

You know, posting pictures like that is going to do nothing for your cause.

Flannery- Wow! I thought I was alone! Did you suffer the same slings & arrows growing up that I did?

Mixednut- I suppose I could stomach those, but I never order them.

Lulu- I have a cause? ;)

Lu - Relax, that picture is totally fake.

oh, sorry, my mistake Chris.

megan-spoken (written) like a Southerner. I have photos like that that I took for God's sake.

this is like when I tell people I don't like tomatoes. I think they want to ship me back from the planet I originally came from.

You should see their faces when I say this. YIKES!

Yep, Chris, I did suffer. Even as a little one still in diapers, when my parents tried to feed me mashed potatoes, I'd spit them out.

No one ever understood why I didn't like them.

I HATE mashed potato as well.. I like mine firm. Not mushy.
