Chocolates Or I Shoot You: Accurate Depiction Of Motherhood

May 1932

Oft is the time I’ve enjoyed a Whitman’s Sampler; Walgreen’s always has them in supply. But what of this metal box of Loveliness? Isn’t that a fruit of the spirit? No, I forget myself. Loveliness is full of surprise centers. Forrest Gump’s mother was well-acquainted with these. I received neither last Sunday. But at least I’m not stuck on a frontier with my frock stuck in a cactus.

Trivia tidbit: The first recorded use of the phrase “lock and load” is in the John Wayne film, Sands of Iwo Jima film: twice as a metaphor for “get ready to fight” and once as a humorous invitation to drink alcohol/get loaded. (source: wikipedia)
