Well Merry Christmas! – Our very first holiday card was the notification of the death of a classmate of the beloved husband. Not a good omen. Technically it wasn’t a holiday card but a notecard. It would be hard to put that news in a card with a happy Santa on the cover.
Weird fetishes – My young cat Morgan loves to lie on the computer desk when I’m working there. Occasionally she will be bored and noses around to see what she can play with. Her favorite are envelopes. She loves licking the glue. I stop her when I catch her because it doesn’t seem like a good idea (and yes I saw the Seinfeld episode where George Costanza’s fiancé died of licking invitation envelopes!).
Oblivious – I hate gassing up my car. More so in the winter when your hands get cold and smelly. This past week I took advantage of a warm day and was pretty pleased with myself. The next day I looked out my side view mirror and noticed that I had forgotten to close my gas cap. Fortunately I hadn’t driven too much with it hanging out. I better put my name in for a spot at the home for crazy old people, or better still — crazy old flamboyant people with pets.
It’s the time of the year – I love the email subject lines these days. I got one from DSW (the big shoe company) that said, “Did you forget you need boots?” I don’t need boots, really I don’t.
Down for the count – This week I was really sick. (I’m better now!) I was sicker than I had been in a while. How do I know? Besides wanting to go directly to the undertaker I slept with parsley on my teeth. How disgusting is that? I felt badly for the parsley!
So how was your week?
