Well, I have to share with you all a funny story that happened to me on Wednesday, which is what I refer to as “mom’s day”. It is the day I take mom to the grocery store for the 4th time in the last month, and sometimes to 2 or 3 grocery stores in a single morning. Then after spending hours going up and down every aisle in every grocery store in town, hauling enough food for 6 people home for my mother, and making the great escape, I hit a local fast food restaurant that shall remain unnamed. But my goal is the same each time I go…a tuna un-wich (lettuce wrap) and they always make it super fast. LOL
Anyway, on Wednesday I’m standing at the end of the counter waiting for my sandwich to come down the line. There is a girl behind the counter also waiting on my sandwich because it is her job to wrap and package it properly so I can take it with me.
When the guy who is making the sandwich slides it over to her, she makes a face at the sandwich and leans in close to him and says, “that sandwich is supposed to be 8 inches long.”
He looks at her and shrugs. Then he looks at the sandwich and says, “That is 8 inches long.” (Seriously?)
She shakes her head and leans in closer to him and whispers, “No, it’s not. That’s only about 6 inches.” Then she tries to rearrange the sandwich to stretch it out to a longer length. (Wouldn’t it be nice if this really worked!? LOL)
He makes a face and says, “No, that’s 8 inches.” (Really?)
Okay, you know me…you don’t really think I can let this go by, do you? I’m about ready to bust a gut here. I can’t take it any more. I lean forward and whisper to the girl, “It’s okay. That’s the way guys measure. Just let him believe it’s 8 inches.” (Always sage advice, if you ask me.)
I thought both of them were going to fall on the floor. She was almost choking when he finally said, “Women!” (Yep, he’s heard it before. LOL)
The things you hear when you listen! This one made me laugh out loud…and you know next time I go in there, they are gonna know exactly what my sandwich is. (And I’ll bet it’s 8 inches long too!)
That’s my story, freaky and fast, and I’m stickin’ to it! Hang on tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
Well, it seems that when you write for a living, every day has some new distraction. Today’s distraction at my house is a 90 pound hound who has wandered in from a neighbor’s house.
She clearly has puppies and needs to get back to them, but we are waiting for someone to come home and unlock the gate. Unfortunately, I don’t think she used the gate when she came to visit.
My dog, Skay, and the rat-killing duck, Tubby, freak out every time they see her. Skay won’t stop barking at her and Tubby paces the pen quacking. Probably a good thing the poor interloper doesn’t speak duck or her feelings might be very hurt.
And the even more unfortunate thing is that she really wants to sit in my lap while I work. Ain’t happenin’! That is why she has that forlorn look–she is really workin’ it!
That’s Thursday’s story, doggy and distracting, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on real tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
The day started off with good intentions, but quickly went to hell in a hand basket! Ever had that happen? It’s frustrating. So…to make you all feel better about your day, here’s just one of the things that happened in my day.
You remember Stupid Girl? Well, she stops by every now and then when I least expect it, just to say Hi and see how my day is going. Then she does something monumentally stupid. But the good news is that I needed something to blog about today anyway. LOL
I was sitting on the couch working…emails, brainstorming, BMG planning…lots of stuff going on. My plan was to write today, but my inbox was stuffed so I decided I had to get caught up on some stuff. So I was pounding away and emails were flying fast and furious, and I hadn’t bothered to get dressed. Some days I spend the entire working day in my jammies. Then it dawned on me that I had invited a friend over to have dinner this evening, so I needed to put clothes on before I lost track of time and was sitting here in my jammies when my friend arrived. Here’s where it goes south…
I set my work aside and got up off the couch to go get dressed. Then Stupid Girl showed up and I lost my place. Three hours later, I realize I’m sitting on the couch in my pajama top (still) and my panties. Apparently I’d lost my place before actually putting on pants. LOL Now I’m off to finish getting dressed. This is the second near-miss clothing incident in the last week. By this weekend, I’ll be Lady Godiva riding the streets on my horse naked!
Have you ever done this? Ever walked out of the house without your clothes? In your bra (like I did last week)? Without your pants? Without your shoes? Leave me a comment and tell me your dressing horror story so we can all laugh at…er…with you. 🙂
That’s my story, naked and nutty, and I’m stickin’ to it. Hang on tight now, ‘cuz we’re gonna go real, real fast!
