if you are lucky, you GROW old but do you have to get CRABBY too?
(I am NOT crabby or grumpy, how could I be, I gave the wife a sunflower!)
Here is my point: I am a very positive person, right? Or I try to be?
I tell the wife:
me: "I am at the checkout and say "thank you!" and the seen-it-all young woman tells me "not a problem!" and I walk away thinking "ARGH! I WANNA BLOW CHUNKS!"
she: "a bit dramatic..."
me: "I hate that "not-a-problem" sh!t. Do people get old and then get grumpy????? Fuch!"
she: "Totally understandable. It's like she is saying "you might have been a problem, but I chose to ignore the fact that you were almost a problem...this time"
me: "THAT's it...see, she INSULTED me, or nearly did, by not saying "you're welcome", so I can crab about it, shout out sh!t like "KIDS THESE DAYS!."
she: "Where DID that not-a-problem thing come from..."
me: "Right, so we can say that old guy thing "KIDS THESE DAYS!" BTW, Lorde is only 17 and she kicks ass....so I can go back to being Mr Positive :)"
In other news, our blizzard wasn't TOO bad...just 5 inches and 5 degrees. I have been babysitting my best pal Ray's cat Scoop, who is famously at the top of my list: PETS I WANT TO KIDNAP I LOVE THEM SO. Scoop is so named for her mittens...extra toes...and she is a killer mouser, wicked smart and playful, loving and fun. She is like a golden retriever with bottle caps, throw them, she catches them, and BRINGS THEM TO YOU!
Penny is so dang cute is she not?
Everybody likes Lorde's Royals, which is pretty good, but this is the one for me...have an awesome day!
