Past Imperfect – #351

SR 1351

Jimmy: “What the hell are you doing?”

Norma: “Sweetie, I know you were born in Pennsylvania, and I can forgive you for that. But you are really drawing too much attention to our table with your ‘golly gee’ expression. Tone it down a notch.”

Jimmy: “But it looks like you’re breaking off those crab legs and shoving them in your purse.”

Norma: “That’s exactly what I’m doing, you hayseed. Times get tough in Hollywood when they keep finding younger starlets with firmer breasts. I’ve got to feed my family somehow. Now, go do something insipid to distract the photographers while I snatch the roasted pig from the next table.”

    • Ugh, I have SEVERAL family members and friends who act this way at buffets, not even TRYING to be discreet as they hurl whole turkeys and silverware and centerpieces into their cavernous purses. Purses that they then practically DRAG to the door because they’re so heavy. Needless to say, I no longer go to buffets unless everyone in the party has cleared a background check and signed a waiver that they will not make an ass of themselves…

  1. Hilarious! I have a friend who takes it a step further and puts a big tupperware box in her purse to protect the inside of the purse! We hauled away a TON of cookies from a buffet in Vegas. And a few impractical tapas plates. Heh.
