Went out and saw a new Tom Hanks film tonight, Lady Killers was the name I think. If I’m wrong I’m sure Laura will post the correct title after me, because she’s good at correcting me lol. Tom Hanks did a really good job, but it was a kinda goofy movie. Oh yeah and had good news on the business front, but I’ll spare you all the details of that.
The coffeemaker isn’t coffeemaking anymore.
I suppose it’s easy for you all to shrug it off and return to your merriment…It’s been years since I’ve attempted to ride my morning temperament sans coffee…Perhaps I should warn Miles to wear a helmet.
I’m distraught though, really. I sang my rendition of “how do I live without you?” and lamented. It’s a healing process I suppose. “This too shall pass”, and all that.
No one said that life was fair…but to be honest, this really stinks.
We went to see Garfield tonight! Miles purchased tickets and the woman selling them had to ask how old I was She seemed quite embarrassed to learn that not only was I older than 12, but that I was a decade older than 12. Yes, I still receive a smiley face sticker from the occasional Wal-Mart greeter, BUT I haven’t been offered a children’s menu in ages!
Maybe if I stopped sucking my thumb in public that would help clear up the confusion….or if I could leave my blankie at home JUST ONCE! But then, why should *I* have to change? HMPH! 😉
I’ve been to Florida once!—Perhaps I dipped my toes in the fountain of youth without realizing what it was! Cashiers have no problem letting me walk out with a pastry or a candy bar….but a bottle of wine? Red light red light! Which is the GREATER wrong, I ask you? I mean…I’d at least SHARE the bottle of wine….
So we were at the grocery store, ready to checkout—our brief but complete collection of goods in hand—and there, at the end of the checkout lane, sat a coquettish basket of a Reese’s candy bars. I tried to resist, I did, I’ll swear that I did! They sang a siren song of their very own…I was powerless to do anything but heed their call! AND, as if that transgression weren’t enough, I had to force Miles—practically at gunpoint!—to eat one of the enticing chocolaty morsels as well. Because I usually stay away from sugar, right about now I’m feeling like a spinning top on a pogo stick!
In a few hours it will be better. My heart will stop doing jumping jacks and my hyperactive state will subside … and, inevitably, I will remember Miles bullying me into eating the dumb thing 😉
I received a phone call from Miles this afternoon. He began the conversation with, “Are you sitting down?” Egads, something MUST be wrong!….right? That’s what I thought! What could it be?—the list was endless! Car trouble? His shoes are untied? He took the last peanut butter cookie with him before he left?? how horrific THAT would have been! As you can see, I became quite hysterical…well as hysterical as a person can become in about three seconds, anyway.
….”Are you sitting down?”
“I think I just drove by a Kohl’s.”
A Kohl’s! Can you believe it?? A KOHL’S in WILMINGTON! Now if only an Olive Garden would move into town, I might know *true* happiness 🙂
