Today I wasn’t quite yet feeling awesome, but really needed to get out of the house before I’m forced into some sort of program for TLC addiction. I also have some overdue writing projects, so I packed up my trusty computer (which is definitely feeling the need for one of these) and headed off to Barnes and Noble. While there, I decided it was time for Part Deux of People Watching. Here’s some of what I beheld:
- A couple on their first date. Hysterical! They were funny but not funny- haha, more like funny- tense. Funny- nervous. And yet, clearly funny into-each-other. I’d say it was a love connection.
- Biscotti – no matter how careful one may endeavor to be – will without any doubt end up on the table, floor and between the keys of one’s innocently bystanding computer.
- I love Pandora, but there are certain songs that cannot be “thumbs-down’ed” quickly or aggressively enough for my taste. Winter Sun by Lez Zeppelin, I”m looking at you. I know you think that’s a typo, but it’s not – Lez Zeppelin is apparently a female Led Zeppelin cover band. Here’s the link to the ear-splitting atrocity song – feel free to tell me I’m crazy in the comments.
- It’s weird when someone crawls under the table you’re sitting at to plug in their computer. I’m sure it’s totally within the bounds of coffee shop protocol…it’s just weird.
- Oh, how I love when a daddy drops off his sweet and special little girl for tutoring and kisses her before he leaves. That’s good daddying.
- Watching the Top 10 Superbowl Commercials of All Time online – no matter how funny and insightful – will not assist in the completion of overdue writing projects.
And here’s a freebie from my trip to Costco:
- When someone stops suddenly in front of me and I accidentally run into her with my cart, I feel really terrible…in fact, I feel like the Bad Guy. However, when that someone turns around and screams curse words in my face, it takes the sting out of my mistake a bit and I no longer feel like I’m the only one wearing the black hat. So, thanks for that, lady. I know you didn’t want to yell at me, you just wanted to alleviate my burden of guilt. It was nice of you. (In fairness, however, I also know it hurts like the dickens to get hit with a shopping cart.)
Behold: a world filled with wonder, funny couples, crumbling cookies, crazy music, sweet dads, screaming ladies and good coffee. I’m blessed to be a part of it all.
