What sort of person...

...orders one third of a pound of lunchmeat? How does one come to the conclusion that one needs precisely one third of a pound of peppered ham? I was at the deli counter on Sunday - some bone-head tries to butt in front of me, never mind I was wearing a rather bright pink blazer - couldn't miss me... then when it WAS his turn, he ordered one third of a pound of peppered ham. Before I could catch myself my head snapped around and with my jaw on the ground I just gawked at him. I turned away of course, but I couldn't stop myself from laughing and I am certain he could see my shoulders moving as a result - but seriously!!! Who orders one-third of a pound of peppered ham???

Hi, glad to hear you are interested in the Little People swap. It is a one time exchange, but of course if you and your partner wanted to make it a regular thing, you could.

Well I have ordered 1/4 lb in the past, so I must be one of those kind of people !! LOL

No - see - I think one would order in 1/4 lb increments and that seems normal to me... sorry Froggy. I think I just called you normal. ;)

I wish I could buy 1/3 of a loaf of bread. Since my wife has been diagnosed with celiac sprue and cannot eat anything with gluten ingredients, I've about had to give up bread myself. If I buy a loaf of bread, it goes bad long before I can eat much of it. I'm thinking of getting a bread making machine and trying to make rice flour bread that we both can eat. She now buys frozen, gluten-free bread and looks dreadful to me, so I'm not eating that.
