Oh Y’all, this day!
I loved this day!
It started kinda wonky. Moo had shots yesterday and she was puny last night, so I let her sleep in this morning and gave her the option of stayin home. We took Sassy to school and then Moo was bored for about five minutes before she asked me to sign her in late. I’m not sayin she had a fever last night, I’m just sayin The Mister said she was a little warm and he did not use a thermometer, so we have no way of knowing if she ran a fever, and even if she did, she ran it as a result of her shots and not because she is incubating a contagious disease! OKAY?!? (Parents of school-aged children understand.)
Then I ran errands.
It was in the high 50’s and ever so blustery!
I wore fleece! And yoga pants!
I rolled down the windows in Bonnie Blue!
The wind whipped my hair!
The radio station played all the best songs!
The leaves are turnin and blowin all around, y’know!
Sweater weather has arrived! Time to hang up my big hat, hm?
Did you know McD’s is now serving breakfast all day? I got my fountain Coke and a sausage Mc fing! To the bakery! To the party store! To the vape shop! To the grocery! To the Cracker Barrel (They have Cheerwine!) To the toy store!
I drove all around the northeast side of town. I live in the middle. There’s great stuff all around and nothing is far, but the big things are either north or south of me. Ya’ll, I don’t know where the fuck anything is. I know, it sounds strange, cause I’ve lived here pretty much all my life, but I’m gettin old and stuff moves. Lately I find myself sayin things like, “Well it usta be over there by the big cemetery…” and “Oh my God, when did they go outta business?” and the other day, I asked a man if I could still go inside to get drinks and pay for my husband’s gas. Like, is that still a thing you can do? With cash?
I had the nicest deli lady today. On the chart, the finest slice is called SHAVED.
I held a door for a couple, and the woman told me she was jealous her husband has a walker, and now she wants one, because people always open doors for him.
I had a fascinating conversation with a man from Mississippi. He thinks it’s “cold as balls” outside and thinks maybe he needs to bring that stray cat inside before it freezes to death. I guess no one has told him what winter’s like here, but I wasn’t gonna be the messenger.
Did all the good things, chatted all the nice people, drank all the tasty drinks. I had SUCH a good day!
When’s the last time you had a day like that?
