Good morning! Just a thought to start the day…when you eat a bowl of Captain Crunch (with milk today….I’m switchin’ it up…living all crazy and unpredictable! I’m such a rebel…) Anyway, when you eat a bowl of Captain Crunch with earbuds stuffed in your ears, you cannot hear the music, only the mow-crunch-chew noises. Very frustrating when you are wanting a bit of morning tune-age with your sugary feast!
Another thought for you to ponder…when you drive a vehicle with the parking brake stuck in the “engaged” position, it will eventually eat through the disk and you’ll find yourself riding shot-gun in your son’s 1977 Oldsmobile Omega that’s the color of a slowly-rotting pumpkin and due to the need for a new exhaust, sounds like an 80 year old chain-smoker when it’s fired up. (Oh yeah, people WILL stare!)

my ankle length, BRIGHTLY
colored Gypsy skirt here.
It really gives you the FULL
The awesome thing about this? When you dress like a color-blind bag lady with a drug-induced sense of fashion…you actually look like you BELONG in a 1977 Oldsmobile Omega! Especially when Migraine meds meet normally scheduled pain meds and what results is, shall we just say a very pot-like case of the giggles.
The natural progression of this effect is you reach the point where you think (stupidly so) that carrying a 50 pound bag of bird food on one shoulder while using a cane is a great idea.( Or at least a “workable” idea.) Just try picturing THAT one! Hippie-dippie, giggle-girl with purple, sparkly cane, listing to one side like a fast-sinking ship…limp-hop-cane, limp-hop-cane, complete with multiple grunts, groans, and outbursts of, “Oh, sh#t!” in between fits of giggles.
Of course, if you think about the fact that this all occurred in a local Mom and Pop Feed Store, well…sticking out like a sore thumb would have been an improvement! The owner, who’s known me for about six years, could NOT stop laughing! I thought the poor guy was gonna wet himself. *cringes just a little at thought of returning anytime soon*
Yep. There are just some days when I REALLY have no business inflicting myself on the unsuspecting public. So, in order to make up for yesterday’s faux pas, I am officially vowing to spend the day in the relative safety of my own home, watching Masterpiece Theater with my daughter and eating microwave popcorn.
May heavenly wine and roses seem to whisper to you…and may you smile! (OK, 10,000 Bonus points to anyone who figured out I was listening to “Sweet Jane” and NOT stoned!)
