Oh no! – This week Starbucks ran out of their mocha sauce! I tried a different Starbucks store and was told it was a global shortage! (Really? Is this part of a terrorist plot? Was there a conspiracy?) For two days I had to quaff down the diet stuff. Yes, there is a difference to a true mocha-tier!
Hi good buddy! – This week a long-lost blogger returned to the fold! Universal Musings writer (and published author) Jill Foer Hirsch returned to blogging. I always enjoyed her humorous posts. She had a way of making everything funny. Welcome back Jill!
Where’s the meat? – This week a waitress at a new restaurant used a new (for me) term. I ordered a vegetarian pasta dish and she asked if I wanted to add protein. Hmmmm…would they dust it with a vitamin pill if I said yes? Then I realized she was asking if I wanted to add chicken or shrimp. Next time I am prepared. I will ask for a little scrambled egg on top!
What’s that I smell? – I was running behind on my “chores” and cleaned out the basement kitty litter box late in the day. I went down to the basement, home of the treadmill and litter boxes. There was a new smell. Damn! It was that male gym smell. The beloved husband had just finished an hour on the machine. I didn’t even smell the litter!
Revolving medicine cabinets – Back when I was young I had tampons, zit cover-up, blue eye shadow, make-up and various other “young people” sundries stored in my medicine cabinets. Stuff that would make me pretty and full of energy. Today it’s all different. In addition to trading out the KY jelly for hemorrhoid ointments there are pain killers, sleep helpers and cholesterol reducers. This week I added eye drops for severe dry eye. It is bad enough that my bladder wakes me up every night for attention. Now my eyeballs wake me up with uncomfortable burning. If only the bladder and eyeball would get on the same schedule so I can get some sleep. I wonder what other medications are coming my way.
So how was your week?
