So Saith The Snapple Lid

Following, in no particular order, are tidbits of knowledge you probably never knew and/or don’t need to know even now, brought to you by your friends at Snapple! While I personally have no choice but to believe what the Snapple lid tells me (the lid has never lied to me before--that I know of), I can understand any reluctance on your part if you are dubious and/or if you need verification of these supposed facts. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide any confirmation for any of the statements that follow, therefore, if you choose to proceed, please do so with caution!

Also, this is my first blog post here using rainbow-y font colors!

Yo, Deb!! It's ALWAYS so good to see/hear/read from you!!

As for putting me to shame, if/when you ever decide to do so, all I can say is that it will have been done by one of my online heroes, and I would wear the humiliation as a badge of honor!! ;-)

Thanks for dropping in! It is ALWAYS good to hear from dear, wonderful, "mean" ol' you!!
