Overheard at the Kitchen Store - Really!

So . . . I was in one of our local kitchen gadget shops yesterday, looking for a cookie cutter in the shape of a dove (they were out of them). Standing near me were a young, very fashionable lady in high heels, short skirt and stylish hairdo; her husband; and the store clerk. The lady was asking for "something that puts words onto a cake." The clerk showed her their display of decorating bags and metal tips.

"No, that's too complicated. I want something more like a Magic Marker," the lady said.

"Well," said the clerk, "You're in luck! This is about as close to a Magic Marker as you can get for cake decorating!" And she handed her a decorating "pen," something I had never seen. It looked like this.


"Yeah," the lady said, looking at the tool rather skeptically, "But how do you change fonts?"

This is a different Betty.."I think I met this lady; she was blonde and had 'white out' all over her monitor screen."

off topic,but thought you'd be interested

-The Prayers of Agnes Sparrow is number 6 on the Kindle bestsellers list... which is amazing since the book was one of the first novels ever released by Abingdon Press, the book publishing arm of the United Methodist Church. Library Journal just named this novel from Joyce Magnin as one of the top five Christian books of the year, so Abingdon is giving it away FOR FREE. If you've got a Kindle, drop by Amazon.com and download it.
