Sometimes, It's Like He TRIES To Be The Squeaky Wheel

Farmer H will never slip through life unnoticed. He's not loud or boisterous, but he does have a way of calling attention to himself. Even when it's at home, where he's the only one I have attention for these days anyway.

No, he CAN'T simply pick up a bag of chips and open them in the normal manner. I have no idea why he opened this bag from the bottom! Last I saw, it was sitting on the cutting block, right side up, leaned against an unopened jar of olives. The logical thing to do would have been grasp the top edges, and pull them apart. Not pick up the bag, flip it over, and THEN pull the sides apart.

Oh, it doesn't hurt the chips, the bag being opened from the bottom. It can be flipped over and stood upside down, with the clip at the "top." Farmer H bought the chips, anyway. They were $1 each, and he got two bags. At the auction. That's a good deal on these chips. They'd be over $3 at Country Mart. And probably near expiration, too!

Farmer H said the guy who sells these chips has cases of them, and brings them all the time. I told him to get more next time. Maybe he'll stand on his head to do the bidding!

Ha Ha, this reminds me of my kids. They'll pick up anything and read "open other end" then they'll say "no box (or bag) is going to tell ME what to do" and they'll purposely open the wrong end.

Heh, heh! I guess that's Farmer H's attitude!

That would be a sight to see, Farmer H bidding while upside down!

You never know what Farmer H is going to do... until he does it!
