Do You Have a Surprise Talent?

You may or may not know this, but I have many talents that I bet would surprise you. I don’t like to brag, but I can nurse a baby, make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and quiz a kid on math facts all at the same time.

I know. It’s a gift is what it is.

I can also do a flip on the trampoline. Never you mind the collateral damage and the public humiliation [8] inflicted on me the last time I did one. The fact is that I’m a mother of 8 well into her forties and I can do an acrobatic feat that defies gravity! Be impressed!

Now, that’s not nearly as impressive as this lady who can fit her entire body into a tennis racquet frame [9]! (Is anyone else wondering what possessed her to try it? “Well, since I don’t have anything else to do today, I guess I’ll see if I can squeeze myself in here. HEY! Whaddya know? It worked!”)

Another surprise you might not know about is what came in my mail last week.

SURPRISE! Green Giant is now making new veggie snack chips!

We got to sample the zesty cheddar flavor roasted vegetable chips and the multi-grain sweet potato chips. (My favorite was the sweet potato chips, but my kids like the roasted vegetable chips best.)

And I have a confession to make. That photo in my pantry was staged. Do you know why? Because as soon as I opened the box with the bags of chips in it, my kids swarmed around me and there was a veritable whirlwind of reaching hands and smacking lips. The chip crumbs were flying like the debris from a wood chipper. (Are my kids the only ones who are determined never to let there lips touch the chips? I’m telling you, crumbs FLY!)

So, by the time I got my camera out, this is what was left of the chips.

Needless to say, all of us loved them.

And I think I’ll be looking for them the next time I go grocery shopping.
