Yikes! Where did the time go? – I got the “save the date” notice for my high school reunion. We no longer have dinner dances, opting for an early dinner with music that’s over by 9 p.m. I suspect the next one will be either an early bird special or a luncheon. As always, I labor over whether to go. I have never gone but now we have a website. I can see who attended the last one. There is a picture! They list women’s maiden names. That’s very helpful because some I didn’t recognize any other way. Two casual high school friends attended last time. My bestie died a few years back and another good friend never goes. Once I got out of high school I didn’t have contact with anyone but my bestie and even that was occasional. My life was different from everyone else’s. This was back in the day when a lot of women got married shortly after high school and started families. Without kids, we had nothing in common and they didn’t have time for girlfriends. I’m a little curious though. I wonder if there will be a lot of bragging about kids who are solving world peace and saving the world. What to do…
A proper thrashing – As I sat waiting for my turn in the Starbucks drive-through line, a woman in a car pulled next to me, rolled down the window and thoroughly thrashed me with words. I did not roll down my window so it sounded like Charlie Brown’s teacher “wa wa wa wa wa wa!” I struggled with what I had done that angered someone to the point of coming after me. I remember cutting across the access road but I had a clearance of at least 3 car lengths. We were driving 20 mph and there were no brakes applied by anyone. My best guess is that she was texting with her head down, looked up and was startled to see me even though I was in the distance. It’s either that or she mistook me for the sexy woman who stole her boyfriend. I’m opting for the second.
Another thought – As I sat there, I was trying to judge if she would have a gun under her seat. Fortunately I live in an area where people don’t pack heat unless they sell drugs. She was angry for sure and that’s how a lot of road rage happens. I wonder if her boyfriend was all that hot.
I need a do over – This week has been one of the loveliest so far this year. I wasn’t feeling well for most of it. I’m fine now but it’s windy and much cooler with rain predicted. What’s up with that?
PSA for my blogger friends – I receive an email notice when bloggers I follow post. I also see it in the WordPress reader which is what I normally use to access. This week I noticed that the reader didn’t have all the posts I follow. When I pulled them up, they were not marked “follow.” My problem is that I don’t always realize if I’m missing posts because I don’t access through the email. I’ve been more attentive but I can’t be the only one this is happening to.
So how was your week?
