I’m tired of being an adult – This week I smashed my face into a wall (don’t ask because I don’t know how I did it). It hurt like hell. I was in a store. I really wanted to sit down and cry for my Mom. However, I soldiered up and finished my errands. I got a gigantic goose egg on my forehead but my bangs cover it. I’m sure it wouldn’t look so bad if my Mom would have kissed it to make it better. Being an adult isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
What you see when you are paying attention – We were in a pizza shop at dinner time. Two men came in. They looked like father and son with the son looking close to 50 and the father considerably older. When their pizza came they bowed their head and the father said grace. I have never seen that at a pizza shop. Ever.
Sucker! – I am on Facebook. There is a lot of crap on Facebook too. I never click on those tantalizing news clips because they are all fake. (Ok, full confession, I did click on one but it was a long time ago.) They are selling something endorsed by Dr. Oz or Dr. Phil or someone I’m supposed to respect. This past week I clicked on a news article from one of the huge national newspapers. It was legit but the download took forever. There were too many sidebar ads with moving parts. I am not clicking on anything connected to Facebook.
Hanging with my homies – Since giving up Sirius radio in my car I have become reacquainted with the local stations. I love the local news, weather and traffic reports – not so much the commercials. They have a “Dear Siri” segment in the morning that’s hysterical. You email your problems. Siri answers them (in stilted voice) like a trucker complete with words bleeped out. It’s like Dear Abby on drugs.
Squeeze it all in – All of sudden the end of summer is looming and we have social commitments to fulfill. How does that happen? We agree to meet for drinks or dinner early on but it doesn’t happen in June or July. We end up with tons of things to do the last week of August. It’s almost as if winter will start on September 1st. We will be partying this week! Whoop, whoop!
