Don't Let 'Em BEET You Up or Tips You Didn't Know You Needed

Happy New Year!

I'm looking forward to a more peaceful, healthy and prosperous new year in 2010. Also, this year, I'm going to share a little wisdom I've learned from my 38 years of experience on this earth. I don't promise depth or even practical applications, just random insight.

The first bit of advice this year comes straight from an on-going conversation with my mom. Mom and I have some rather silly conversations, as you'll see.

PLEASE NOTE: During these conversations, we are very aware of the absurd randomness of the conversation, so don't pity us for not knowing how ridiculous we are.

It is very likely that we are the only people who would benefit from this bit of insight, but when you figured out how to do something effectively, don't you just want to share it? Yeah, me too.

I present to you our tips for Transporting and Eating Beets at Work. (Not rocket science, here.)

1. Wear pink. Or black.
2. Wrap beets in a container, sealed in a ziplock and then put that ziplock in another container. This is the only effective way to transport beets without getting beet juice on everything, other than in an unopened can or jar.
3. Do not eat beets while you are working on a file or paperwork or else you will have little beet juice polka dots on your work.

Brilliant, huh? Maybe you don't like beets. Maybe you are not sure why you read this far. That's ok. I know my mom liked it! Happy New Year!


  1. I am laughing outloud right now after this one!!!! Thanks SO MUCH for the "Transporting and Eating Beets at Work" tips, for I have been struggling with this one for years! I am a BEET LOVER! And now, I can have my Beets, and eat them, too!!!! (hee hee!) LOVE IT!!!! Thanks for making me smile!!

  2. This is, by far, the best beet related post I've seen this year.

  3. "Just beat it! Beat it! Beat it! Beat it! No one wants to be defeated..." Oh...wrong "beet" sorry. I actually don't think I have ever eaten a beet but I may add it to my list of goals for the new year...!? Enjoyed the cute post.
