I am a Gemini. I always tell people that I can't remember if I'm the good twin or the evil one. I am in a nasty mood today, so evil twin is winning as she sometimes does. I was stuck in the house all day waiting on “important” phone calls that never came. I feel like this day was a total waste of makeup!
When I finally gave up and did get out to make a quick trip to the grocery store I was immediately assailed by an old co-worker (Nice perfume. Must you marinate in it?), that insisted on getting me up to date on people and places I haven’t seen in years and more importantly don’t care about anymore, if I ever did. (Don't bother me. I'm pretending to live my happily ever after!)
Then she started on about her husband, a bottomless pit of needs & wants. But she goes with the creed of better living through denial I think! Anyway, the last time I saw her husband he was three sheets to the wind and two were flapping! That was in the middle of the afternoon on a weekday, so we know he can entertain himself! She felt I needed to know about his enlarged prostate for some odd reason. Luckily at that point, her son runs up to the cart and starts to pull on her arm, talking over both of us. This boy is about 12 but it is obvious the he is meandering to a different drummer but I was able to make this my opportunity for a great escape.
The shopping finally done, I went up to the check out, where there was 4-5 people waiting in line at every register. I ensured there was no one I knew so I could get my groceries and take my miserable self home.
This was not to happen quickly. Behind the counter was an adult child of alien invaders. You know the kind, He who laughs last, thinks slowest? She and the lady in front of me in line were discussing which brand of toilet paper they liked best and going on and on about it. Do they ever shut up on your planet? I kid you not! I can’t help thinking, watching them, is it time for your medication or mine?
OK, I admit I am stressed today. I abhor large companies who promise to call you back about an important matter and then, don’t! After waiting the day through with no calls, I was out of sorts and not fit company to be out in public, I admit, but the cats needed food and I hate coffee without milk. So it was a necessary trip to town.
I am home now. The world is safe from my ire. I should take a lesson from the legendary George Carlin who stated, “Don’t sweat the petty things ... and don’t pet the sweaty things!”
Good Day all!
