I do most of my shopping online (see: no malls for five hours east or west). I know my measurements. I should be able to buy the same size, across the board, from every store, right? No. Sometimes I’m a medium. Sometimes I’m a small. Sometimes I’m a large. Sometimes I’m a 6, sometimes I’m a 10. Sometimes this happens at the SAME STORE.
Is it vanity sizing? I’m not sure. I don’t really care if I’m a 2 or a 12. I just want clothing that fits the same, no matter when or where I buy it.
Cake is easy! I guess I can understand cake mix if it’s some kind of fancy double-chocolate concoction and you have zero time, but for your basic white cake, yellow cake or chocolate cake, the time involved in making a real cake isn’t that much more than a cake from a box. It also tastes way better. Same with canned icing.
On a similar note…
I suck at breaking eggs. I get yolk and eggshell everywhere. But I still don’t buy liquid eggs! Is it that hard to break and beat regular old eggs? The worst offender in my eyes is the French Toast flavoured mix.
Disclosure: I buy the just egg whites version of these if I’m baking something that requires a lot of whites, because as I mentioned, I suck at breaking eggs. I still feel icky about it, though.
Matt bought a set of screwdrivers recently. The whole thing came in a big box, inside of which there was paper, cardboard and plastic. On top of that, every single screwdriver was wrapped individually. Why all the packaging?
I’m not really sure why some beer companies make their drinks with twist-off caps and others make them with pop-offs. I’m in the habit of handing off every single beer I’d like to drink to someone with drink opening skills, because I can never tell the difference and there I am, cutting my hand up trying to open a pop-off bottle without a bottle opener.
I feel like I’m getting kind of “get off my lawn, hooligans” so I’ll stop there. What things do you not understand?
