"A loaf of bread, a container of milk, and a sticka butta" - Sesame Street

Do your husbands ever call you from the grocery store on the way home from somewhere and ask you if you need them to grab anything? Mine does. He's very helpful without being asked to be helpful. Do your husbands arrive home an hour later then was necessary to pick up milk and bread? Mine does. He's very helpful when he's at the store and picks up things that I didn't even request. Do your husbands purchase things that you have never and would never purchase for your family? Mine does. Like collard greens for instance. You can't have enough collard greens. Anyone have any good collard greens recipes?

martha says "They're chock-full of vitamins B6, C, and E, and are an excellent source of calcium, folate, and beta-carotene." and here is how she suggests you cook them.

Collard greens? Good Luck! The thing about my husband, is that he bikes. He'd look pretty silly holding a loaf of a bread, container of milk and stick a butta' while trying to ride. Plus, he has no cell phone to ask me if I need anything, and he would never think to call before leaving work. However, at times when I send him to the store, he simply comes home to tell me that "such and such" item is no longer sold at the store. Frankly, I think he looks at the prices and walks away or he's just simply an armless looker and can't find it. Yea, you're right, husbands are so helpful.

Do they even sell those outside of maybe Alabama? My husband succeeds at staying out of every possible store except Ace Hardware and the kind that sell books. (Well, to be fair he will run to Wallgreen's or the ghetto Fry's if I ask him to.)
