I punched a lady's truck.
It was involuntary. See, it was the third time some giant truck has parked diagonally in a parking space right next to me in the Rite Aid parking lot, making it impossible to either get in the driver's door, or pull out of my space without a diagram and a man with flags guiding me. I snapped.
Granted, it was a weeny, girly punch, and it caused no damage, but since I'm usually the one who thanks people for walking all over me, I'm counting it as personal growth.
Important side note:
When the lady came out of the store, five seconds after I punched her truck, she had the largest forehead I have every seen. You could project a movie on that forehead. I'm just saying.
Tile Guy and associates have been in my house for three days doing shower-building wizardry. Everything smells like wet cement and stale cigarettes. There are tarps all over the house. I don't care. I love those guys.
I received two awards (me!? I know!), one from Margo at Life in the Short Lane and the other from Scrappy Doo at Adventures in Ellis County... , and I've been obsessively visiting my blog seventy three times a day to admire them! Thanks again, guys! Both awards require my passing on the love, which I will, and also Scrappy's came with a couple of directions to follow:
Say something nice about a man in your life.
The postman has very expressive eyebrows. Also, hardly any of our mail has been delivered to the neighbor lately.
List 6 ways you measure success in your life:
1) Not locking myself out of the house in my socks.
2) Going an entire day without saying something that results in an awkward silence.
3.) Being able to look in a full-length mirror without squinting so that my vision's a little blurry and the full horror is obscured, allowing me to live in denial about that twenty pounds another day.
4) Having somewhere to put all the cereal boxes that are reproducing like rabbits in the kitchen.
5) Oprah has me on her show and makes me her book club choice, even though I don't have a book. Wait, I DO have a book, because I'm suddenly successful!
6.) Hordes of adoring visitors show up on my blog and the site actually crashes from the volume of comments pouring in.
I've almost managed to achieve the first one, so I'm pretty much on my way.I chose two blogs each to receive these awards, which means I'm slightly not following the rules. (I know- first the truck, and now this. I'm on a slippery slope.)
For the first award (here)
I chose the following two blogs, because both write with a simple honesty that makes them feel like old friends. Go say 'hi' from me.
