I knew it would happen – Nothing is more annoying than sitting in a drive through when the car in front doesn’t move up. They have their head in their crotch looking at their cell phone. Not only do they hold up the works but they confuse people as to whether they are really in line. This past week it happened. The car in back of me was lollygagging and a new car pulled in back of me. Yikes the horns were blowing! You’d think it was world war 3! The new person backed out graciously and went around to the end of the line. Peace reigned and war was averted. Come on people pay attention!
Then it happened to me! – Yesterday I swung around and there was a car not at the end of the line but sitting out in nowhere land. I went to the end of the line passing it. Eventually it pulled up in back of me. My best guess is that with head in crotch on phone, it was taking orders from friends. There were no horns so all is good.
Flexibility – Because of unseasonably warm weather I have been pushing the envelope on winterizing the pond. I finally decided on a date and it was too cold. Moved it to the next day and it rained. I hope I can do it today or I’ll freeze my tushy off. Trying to get the last drop out of something good doesn’t always pay.
Friendship – This week I had lunch with a friend I don’t often see. It was a one-on-one which allowed sharing I wouldn’t do in a group. I came away with some insights and hope she did too. Much as multi-people gatherings are fun, it’s those one-on-ones where you do the best “friending.”
Aging – We will have house guests in two weeks. While I’m looking forward to it, it will be exhausting. There will be a lot of energy (and people) in the house and back-to-back activities. I have blocked out a part of the following week for “recovery.” Perhaps this is just me but I find as I get older I need more alone time and my recovery for events also takes longer. I would not have understood that when I was young but here I am.
So how was your week?
