A Party For Myself

Had a bit of a bad day. Held in a few tears at some points. Went to Wal-Mart on the way home to pick up a few things to have a better night. In line, the guy in front of me tried to hit on me and told me I have pretty eyes. I flashed him my wedding ring as I said thanks, but he wanted to keep on talkin, because he asked me about my purchase.

"Birthday party?"

"Nope. I.. uh. . ."

pretty good conversation killer. It was pretty funny when the lady behind me said, after he left, "I think he was hitting on you!" I told her I'd had a bad day and needed that stuff all for myself. She whole-heartedly agreed as we chatted how once a month a woman is aloud to buy enough food for 10 small children and eat it all herself. The poor male cashier just beeped the stuff through and told me the total. Poor guy.

I was purchasing:

2 BAGS OF SKITTLES

2 BOXES OF YELLOW CAKE MIX

1 YORK PEPPERMINT PATTY

1 RASPBERRY JAM JAR (THE HUGE ONE)

No, no, not buying things for a birthday party. Just going to go home and watch Dear John and then Blind Side. Yep. I felt cool. But you know what? Some things really do perk your day right up.

  2. it's true. it's so true! the things i have eaten at that *special* time...it's not pretty. (but at the same time, it's beautiful) have you had dove chocolate's ice cream? they come in the little pints...i think the flavor is "unconditionally chocolate." i stock up on it every time jonathan has to leave. and other times too. it's amazing.

    ps - how was dear john? i can never decide if i would be able to make it through that movie without losing it.
