Pbpbpbpbpbpbpbpbpbbpp!

So Thursday night I'm pushing my cart through my local Giant, and this kid comes running up the aisle, imitating an airplane, or possibly a motorcycle. "Pbpbpbbpbpbpbbpbpbbppp!" he goes. He's about four or five. He stops in front of the bulk coffee bins and grabs a big handful of French roast beans. He munches them down. Then he runs on past me. I hear him tearing down the next aisle. "Pbpbpbpbpbpbpbpbpbbpp!" he goes.

Whoa. The caption below that picture might be "Future Grad Student"--but only if he was also shoplifting Sparks :-)

T said...

P.S. You know that *I* wouldn't touch Sparks if someone paid me, right? Well, maybe I'd *touch* it--but certainly not drink it!

Hah! Yeah, I was thinking he certainly has a future in the arts.

And I only just now found out what Sparks is. Thank you.

I'm sure you're just now leaving to go buy a case!

i think that may have been an airplane, or possibly a motorcycle, pretending to be a small boy.

I remember the first time I was exposed to chocolate covered espresso beans. I had driven up to Philly with a couple of friends for a concert, and after it was over we went to someone from Philly's house to hang out for a while. There was a bowl of these little chocolate beads sitting on the table, and I scarfed the lot of them. Only then did someone tell me what they were! Fortunately, we planned to drive home that night anyway and needless to say I didn't need to make a coffee stop the entire trip - even though it was almost dawn when we got back here.

And BTW, Rob, does it still count as an anagram if you insert commas that weren't in the original expression?
