okay, maybe not like Armageddon or anything…but I am having a b’day soon and I don’t like it. I normally LOVE my birthday. The only day you can be totally self centered. I like getting presents, but for me- just being with people is the thing I like about b’days.
Last year we were in Chicago for a convention- my lovely husband had roses, chocolate and champagne delivered to the room while we were out at dinner. Year before that my friends pulled off a surprise b’day party. Now I have moved and away from long time friends and famiy. This year, I am trying to get ready for a normal day. My husband will be on night 5 of 8 of being on call- and he is already frazzled and it is only day 2. I have a lunch set up on Monday, but most of them made noises that they might not be able to come. For a minute I entertained the thought that they were going to surprise me also…but then I realized I only told one person 2 weeks ago that it was b’day…and I honestly think she forgot. She sometimes forgets to come to work. Honestly- she is a damn ditz- but I love her.
This sounds so selfish typing it out- but if can’t have a pity party on your own damn blog- WHERE CAN YOU??? I miss going home to my mothers and having whatever I want for dinner and desert. I miss the night of playing board games and laughing.
I don’t want presents- I want PRESENCE!!!!!!!!!
Okay, so NOW for a laugh. I was going through Whataburger the other day and I wanted a chicken sandwich only mustard, and a large diet coke. The girl kept asking me what I wanted..did I want the combo? NO!! Did I want fries with that? NO!!! (um, that is the only difference in what I ordered and the combo dip shit) Did I want a hot apple pie? NO..although a cold as ice apple pie might be…NO NO NO!! Then the speakerboxx goes quiet…and I hear..muffled…motherfucker!! Shit…UM, ma’am, what did you want again? I fucked up on the order and erased it.
I was so stunned I couldn’t remember what I wanted. LOL!!!! When I rolled around to the pick up window there was a 70 year old woman taking the money. I though- well, I guess they stuck her up there b/c that other girl cussed…
Then the old lady said “that will be xxx dollars”…..I’ll be damned if it wasn’t the same one that took my order.
#1 The youngest elderly voice I had ever heard
#2 Poor thing probably has had to back to work b/c of the economy
#3 If I have to work at that age I will probably curse in the speaker box also!!!
After seeing her I didn’t really care anymore that she let it fly. For some reason I can forgive her and move on….but if that would have been a younger girl- I would have reported it. You know that old lady isn’t doing it for fun!! I wouldn’t want her to get fired. 🙂
Hope y’all have a great weekend!!!
