Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur – My heart was warmed this week. I went to pick up a sale item at a store. Inside the store I heard a “squawking” that I thought was a bird. I had a bad feeling. The store keeps its doors open so a bird could get in but it would be hard to get it out. I heard it again so I asked. Turns out one of the staff is fostering a week-old kitten that was taken to a rescue organization. It looked like a mouse. The eyes weren’t even open. She kept it in a sling with her and had to feed it every two hours. That is quite a commitment. Kudos to the management team that allowed it. They will surely get my business now. (End of week update – Kitty is still alive and doing well!)
One cray-cray blogger – (This is posted at the urging of Susannah who is as cray-cray as I am.) I have been co-habituating with a spider in the main bathroom. (He’s not creepy. He isn’t fuzzy and doesn’t drop down from the ceiling.) One week he spins a web in one corner, the next week he is in the other corner. I see bits of insect dinners here and there. We started having discussions. I tell him my problems. He sits and listens (seriously who does that anymore?). At the end of the therapy session there is no charge. Sometimes I wonder if he would be happier outside with more access to insects. Maybe that will be our next conversation.
Who me? – On a recommendation from Pix under the Oaks I bought some yoga pants. I like them. Nice zippered pockets, great material and they come in navy. (Am I the only one who gets tired of black?) This week they sent an email asking for my opinion (and I thought no one cared about my opinions anymore). There were 20 prints for their spring 2016 line. They asked me to rate the print. They were all bikini bottoms. The probability of me wearing a bikini again is similar to me being pope. Nada. Zilch. No way Jose. I gave them my opinion on the print. There wasn’t anywhere I could write that I wouldn’t buy any of them! Bring on the shoes and give me space to write! Maybe even a sketch pad.
Speaking of which – Why is it that I am out of the targeted demographics for merchandise and TV programs? Seniors have more expendable income than the young’uns. Oh yes, I forgot. We also have more sense and don’t buy all that stuff.
Change or not? – On my drive to Starbucks there is a large intersection with stop lights. Until yesterday, left hand turns were allowed on the green arrow only. They changed it (and included a sign) so that after the arrow switched off you still had the green light but had to yield to on-coming traffic. It’s a good thing for non-peak times. I’ve often sat there when there was no on-coming traffic waiting for my arrow (like a good person). This morning I was in back of someone who does not believe in change. We sat through the (non-arrow) green light, then the red, until the green arrow came on. Now that is resistance!
So how was you week?
