It’s Sunday night, and I’m in a crowded grocery store parking lot…on a Sunday night?
The aisles are narrow. Carts with angry scowls attached to them line up behind us as soon as we roll past the sliding glass doors. No time to stop. There’s no room. Thank goodness, the carts don’t have horns. Can you believe she’s rolling and talking on the phone? She’s going to hurt someone in frozen foods.
For a moment, I’m distracted by the Christmas cookies from Matt’s: holiday coffee creamers; and boxes of holiday wrapping paper. Already?! I grumbled to the cashier about it being too soon to think about Xmas . She tilted her head to the right, stared at me and said, ” this ain’t nothing- they start Halloween in July.”
Up until November 1, all I heard about from anxious parents and school counselors was how important it was for my son to turn in his college application by 11/01. Nothing else mattered or forget about his future!
And then at 12:01 AM on November 2, we started receiving notices from numerous colleges, ” Great news! We’ve extended the deadline 3-5 days more. Seriously? Are you kidding me?
Perhaps they will extend the same courtesy when students fail to finish their papers by the due date?
Trump is so predictable that a little voice in my head says”roll tape” whenever he speaks. So today, he was asked if he would be “personally insulted” if Xi of China didn’t show up for their meeting.
Trumps response: “No I’m never insulted. I’ve learned not to be insulted.”
Me: How exactly did he learn the art of not being insulted? Self help?
Roll tape of trump ranting about being insulted!
It’s an endless loop.
Do you take the green line?”
” yeah, why?”
“It derailed and will be delayed for 6 hours.”
I quickly looked up the news story. As I saw video of adults being taken down a ladder. My first thought was “no way would I want to be seen on tv taking a cherry picker, ladder, or getting help off of a tilted train car. ….Instead I saw this as my excuse to try a Divy bike.
