The last week or so has been . . . let’s go with “interesting” . . . in my world. (Interesting sounds so much better than horrifying, devastating or heartbreaking, yes?). There have been some major incidents that have had me wanting to crawl into bed and not come out. I haven’t felt that way for quite a while, so the return of that feeling was not welcome. But, I rallied and moved past it and am trying to get the hell on with my life.
So, on that note, I want to share some of the fun things that I have seen and heard in the most recent past, to combat that feeling of woe is me, everything is going to hell in a handbasket. Play along with me, will you?
This poor little bird was actually in the frozen food aisle of Costco. I watched him for a while. He was obsessed with that bag of french fries behind the glass, and kept flying at it and pecking on the glass to try to get it. It was a little sad, actually. And yes, this is what passes for entertainment in my world.
Are these some sort of fashion leggings? Dear god, what is happening to this world?
Sadly, my favoritest iPhone case broke this past week. LIttle pieces have been breaking off here and there for a while now, but this time the entire side was ripped off, leaving the case less than functional, as my phone kept falling out of the side. I had to find another case, and just happened to have this on hand. Apropos, no?
Apparently, there was a butterfly convention in my back yard. There were about 20 of them flying around this bush. It’s like it’s some kind of butterfly bush or something. Oh, wait . . .
This was a deformed carrot that I found in my lunch pack. There was no way I was putting this thing in my mouth!
And I will end with a story of something that one of my friends said last week. We had a cookout last weekend, at which I served Key Lime Pie martinis. They were a big hit, especially with my one friend. After dinner, I served dessert, and when I informed everyone that there was pie if anyone was interested, this same friend raised her martini glass and proclaimed:
Misty . . . I’ve been eating your pie all night!
Well, if that was the case, you would think I would have felt a lot more satisfied at the end of the night, wouldn’t you? Huh.
