Mrs. Cranky's Shopping List


                                             Mrs. Cranky's Shopping List

Back by popular demand is another 

                       Mrs. Cranky's shopping list contest.

Mrs. C writes in a strange combination of shorthand, doctor and hieroglyphics.

Occasionally she will send me shopping with such a list and expect me to collect all the items.  I always have to call her from the supermarket to inquire on an item, even though all her chicken-scratch was explained before sending me off.

I defy anyone to correctly identify all items.  No one has done so in the past, though a few women have come close.

The person who correctly identifies the most items will win a mention and a WHOOP-TE-DOO (suitable for framing) 

Hint...the scribble on the last line is just scribble.

Good luck!

  3. Why not send it to a pharmacist to do the shopping for you?

    God bless.

  4. Ok, what’s going on with the previous comments?😂 Here are my guesses:

    Grapefruit, cayenne pepper, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, wet wipes, Tylenol, canned tomatoes, macaroni and cheese. Then I get lost: soft buns, shredded mozzarella, Nivia’s hand cream, Joe’s toilet paper?

    I think I’ve found a new career!

  5. Oh God. Tylenol, mac & cheese, grapefruit, olive oil, and soft buns maybe?? Good luck joeh.

  6. You know I've never been able to get more than a couple of the things on her list and that's all I got today. Is she a doctor?

    Have a fabulous day, Joe. ☺

  7. I figured out some of them this time but not all.
    grapefruit, ? , apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise.
    wet wipes, Tylenol, Nivea ?, ? toilet paper.
    canned tomatoes, matches, 20 (?) freezer bags, and shampoo.
    That was the best I could do. I have been known to give my husband a challenge or two with my lists also. Ironically, his handwriting is barely decipherable. Good luck. Ranee (MN)
