Wanna hear my funny story?

On a trip to the mall, we stopped to grab lunch a little cafe (it was Sunday and Chic Fil A was closed). We asked my daughter if she would like a PB&J or Turkey sandwich. She emphatically chose the PB&J and could not stop talking about Daddy bringing her a PB&J while we waited. When Daddy arrived with lunch and presented her with a PB&J sandwich, she burst into tears and shoved away the plate. “No, I want a PB&J!”

And then it dawned on me. PB&J is the name of her favorite smoothie at Planet Smoothie. We had never called a sandwich a PB&J before, just the smoothie. She was used to the sandwich being a peanut butter and jelly. Poor girl thought we were playing the ‘ole swichero on her by offering her favorite snack and giving her a sandwich.

Needless to say hubby and I had a good laugh, and we proceeded to calm her down by offering to get a PB&J on the way home if she ate her peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Now we know.

If you have a funny story, be sure to head over to Alka-Seltzer’s Facebook page to enter for your chance to win. GOOD LUCK!
