The Things We Do for Fun - Randal and Shalonda

Pigtails has decided to call me Randal out in public.  I call her Shalonda.  These are not our real names, but other shoppers at the grocery store don't know that. 

"SHALONDA, GRAB ME SOME PORK 'N BEANS KID, AND HURRY IT UP!!"

(her trying not to crack up):
"Okay, Randal, I'll get some beans.  I love you Randal!"

Sometimes a shopper will do a double-take when we play this game.  It's hard not to laugh.

She also calls me Dave sometimes, and if we're at the mall, it's Barney the mall cop.

  5. My kids and I play this at the store too, I call them, "get over here now" and "stop touching that". They call me something like, "you're-so-mean-we-never-get-anything-please-please-please", something like that, I block it out.

  6. My son and I play this all the time when we are on a road trip. We are the McFinklesteins , I'm Irene and he's Billy. Last time was a hoot as we were at the drive thru tree in NorCal, trying to get the ultimate shot of the car in the tree! We giggled until our bellies hurt!
