The South is Moving North!

So at my vet office, the vet tech comes in first to take her temp. Today she also clipped her nails for me. Poor puppy- two bled. This is precisely why I do not attempt to do this myself. Better someone trained that a nervous momma. Anyway, then the vet tech leaves and closes the door and we wait for the vet to come in for shots, etc. But the doors are slotted so you can sort of hear what is going on behind them (other dogs walking to rooms and vets collecting charts and such). Well today when the tech left and was handing the chart to the vet, she said the sweetest thing that I know she didn't expect me to overhear. She said that Sadie and I were super sweet and very easy going and that she would like going in to see us!! Awww- isn't that so nice?! A compliment by accident I guess since she likely didn't expect me to hear her say such sweet things about me. Totally made my day. Until we had to deal with the glands issue anyway.

So after our rather draining visit to the vet, (Nothing wrong- just due for all of her shots at one time. And then the little matter of full glands to top off an already stressful visit.), I decided that I needed a treat from Mickey D's. But instead of my expected Diet Coke, I tried something I have never before seen offered at McDonald's. Sweet Tea! I LOVE sweet tea! And Mickey D's will give you a big 'ole cup for $1. It was really tasty too. OK, maybe it is gross to true southerners. But this little Yankee has been away from the south for so long that my standards are much lower. I was tickled pink with glee. Just what I needed after an icky visit to the vet. Now if only I could find a good plate of fried green 'maters and a Chick-fil-A...

I was born and raised in the South and consider myself a true Southerner, but I have never liked sweet tea. I know that's horrible. But I do like fried green 'maters and Chic-fil-A. Oh, and don't forget, macaroni and cheese is a vegetable.

Yeah, our new gym is quite near a Chick-fil-A, and it's sort of been all downhill since I remembered how much I adore that place.

And the Sweet Tea. Thank god for the Southerners who introduce us yanks to such goodness.

I don't think McDonald's sweet tea is bad. You all have that up north now?

Mmm, this Yankee also loves herself some sweet tea!

Too funny - I'm with Tammy B. Southerner who hates sweet tea - and I ALWAYS get made fun of for it! I like tea fine, but I order it unsweet and put just a tiny bit of splenda or something in it (like 1/10th of what they sweeten "sweet tea" with). But I also like if w/o any sweetener. It's the way my parents drink it, so I guess that's why! :-)

Lauren- Yup- we totally have it up here in NY now! It's the little things in life that get me so excited!!

Tammy B and BB- I like my hot tea without a drop of anything sweet in it. But my cold tea sweet. I'll drink ice tea wo sweet though. But won't drink hot tea sweetened. I'm crazy like that!
