A man asked me how old I was the other day. When I told him, he said, " well, you don't look it!," and walked away. He never said if I looked older or younger, so I'm not sure it was a compliment or a slam. I left feeling a little empty inside.
I found a fly in my salad last week. I bought the salad at a grocery store, and I suspect the fly was mixed in with the lettuce. I didn't eat the fly, which is good. However, I didn't discover the fly until the salad was almost consumed. It's always better to find a fly, hair, or spit in your food before you eat the meal.
I bought some minnows last weekend and took my son fishing. He wanted to be nice and release all of the minnows. So, I let him "set the minnows free!" I didn't have the heart to tell him that the minnows were no doubt crushed in the jaws of a hungry catfish or bass minutes after being released. Like throwing chum to a shark. I started thinking .. I'm not sure there is any possible way to save a minnow... sad.
Are there really any good deals out there? I went to a furniture store a few weeks ago to look at a new couch. (or sofa/divan .. whatever) .. I learned that anything priced under 499.00 was like sitting on a brick wall covered in fake leather. If I wanted to sit in comfort, it would cost me... so I left...cause I'm cheap ..with a bad back.
I like September. It's my favorite month, but I'm not sure why. I guess Labor Day is a fun time, but September really doesn't have an identity. January is the first month. December is the last. February is the shortest. March has that lion/lamb thing going for it. April has showers and May has flowers. June is summer fun. July has fireworks. August is a dog. October is scary. November has Thanksgiving.. September is ..septactular??
I don't like cheese. But as I get older, I find myself actually eating some select cheese. I like cheese that is smoked. A chedder/swiss blend ..in brick form ..smoked and sliced. But not too thin, and never melted. I still hate melted cheese. ..and you will never catch me eating Miracle Whip. That stuff should be illegal.
