    oh that’s not too bad. I turn 22 in a couple months, so I mean it’s not like you’d be a complete cougar. :coffee:
    okay I gotta be honest I’ve stared at this phrase for 5 minutes, desperately wracking my brain to figure out what it means.

    I can’t decide if it’s:
    • Related to home improvement
    • He has money but he’s alone
    • He has “money” but it’s all irrelevant because it’s in a different unusable currency
    • He has money and now you have money

    To be honest I had a nightmare that my fingernails turned into Hypoderma larvae and I was horrified and I could figure out why they were infesting humans or in the fingernails were the worst site of infestation when it’s supposed to be the back, esophagus & spinal cord. I woke up with all of my gel nail polish haven been scratched off. It was the worst.

    To be fair, I looked at that statement again with sleep in my system and I’m still confused.

    For those confused about the first bullet point: imagine counting gold doubloons in just one hand. Reenact that action if you must. Home improvement (for one) action.

    Hahahahahaha this is pretty funny.
    Yeah it was pretty rough. And I distinctly remember thinking in my dream “but neither Hypoderma lineata or bovis infest human fingers!!!!!”

    it was bad

    I'd just like to let you know the movements for doubloon counting and home improvement without the help of a contractor are not similar whatsoever. Or I've been doing one or both wrong, and I don't think that's the case.

    You might be a bit out of the loop (I don't talk too much about my personal life here..I think I only mentioned it in the Lounge, so not sure if you heard or not). That whole 6-year deal ended about a year ago. Not on unfriendly terms, but it was obvious life plans were diverging. It sucked after so much investment, but life is what it is. This one is a much better fit (having known/worked with each other in the lab for several years prior to embarking on an actual relationship probably helped quite a bit). Life's pretty good rn.

    I would have sent you otter pics but the otters were somewhere out of sight :cryi:

    Couldn't send bear the usual bear pics either, and that was very depressing. Don't think I've ever been at that zoo before without seeing the bears!

    So I have a weird favor to ask.

    So my brother recently bought Simba a new dry dog food and he absolutely loves it. He used to free feed but he gobbles it up now, so I’m wanting to find the nutrition info so he doesn’t get fatter, but he doesn’t remember anything beyond that it’s a Purina dog food. I’ve been looking online, but I can’t find anything.

    hmmm did you try tasting it? I think it would be helpful if you gave us some descriptions of the flavor profile. :thinking:

    Not sure on the exact product but the food coloring makes me think it's from one of their lower end lines, probably the regular dog chow brand or beneful. Maybe focus on looking at those. Does he know what store he got it from?

    He said Kroger. Which doesn’t help much since they carry several types of Purina brands

    You could go to Kroger and look though. They usually have what the kibble looks like on the bag, might be easier to compare in person than online.

    If he doesn’t remember getting blackout drunk on Sunday at brunch with his friends and sleeping through our entire Mother’s Day celebration, he definitely doesn’t remember. :laugh:

    Clearly what Egg needs to do is that since she now knows the taste of the food she has, go to Kroger, and sneak samples out of different dog food bags until she finds the one that tastes the same.

    Fwiw I'm convinced purina pro plan puts crack cocaine in their kibble... Tesla chewed through the side of my bag to get to a sampler years back. It doesn't look right from that pic, but maybe a variant thereof?

    I’ve gone through literally every Purina made dog food on the chewy website and none have that cross shaped piece (not even Beneful). I don’t think it’s purina.

    Ask him if this bag looks more familiar. It’s the small breed formula and the pieces literally are the exact same as your picture (the one jayna posted the pieces didn’t look triangular?)
