Bye Bye BOB...sob, sob, sob

Alright, who's the wise guy that thinks he can sneak up to the front of my house,
squeeze between my car and the garage,
and run off with my jogger stroller?

Huh? Fess up you thief you!

Thanks to you and your sticky fingers I had to rough the terrain of the hills today with my Graco.

Bye, Bye, Bob.

You've served our family well for the past 18 months.

Sure I bought you for a steal at a garage sale.
And sure, maybe my plan was to use & abuse you then post you on craigslist for more than I paid for you.

But regardless, through it all, you've been a tremendous exercise buddy.

You'll be missed.

And to the thug
that thinks he can just take whatever looks appealing to his little beady, integrity-less eyes, I'm concocting a trap to reel you back in and capture you.

So be wise, oh naughty one, be wise.

Let THAT be a lesson for you, missy! Hide all valuables when the garbage pick-up is in full effect....peeps steal. Bad, bad people steal your nice things.

I feel your pain Hayley. My jogging stroller just broke. I don't know if I can go on without it...
Oh, and I think you should leave out some cookies filled with laxative for your "friend." That should do it.

Lame! What is wrong with people?

Stephanie said...

That's a total bummer! I hate people who steal.

Tara said...

I am crying for you right now! Poor Jogger, Poor Avy and Haley! But I have great confidence in mouse trap. That'll teach him!

I confess, I drove all night and decided instead of visiting, I would "borrow" your stroller and then return it at some later date. Did I forget to leave a note? Hee Hee. Sorry about your stroller. You should leave your regular stroller out tonight with the traps set and see if you can catch yourself a theif!

That is awful! I am so sad for you...I don't like when things get stolen. I had a bike stolen in H.S. from my house, and it just made me so so sad.
Hope you can find another deal on a stroller...I have no doubt you will with your shopping savvy!

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥
