Well, the white elephant from the garage sale may be leaving my house today. Someone is interested in the bookshelf and said she would be here today for it. She came last night to see it. Hoping she comes, I am anxious to get rid of it and finish decorating the room.
There are a few things that annoy me. Let me share them with you.
Men who spit. I am on the track this morning, and three elderly gentlemen were in front of me, taking up three lanes of the track. Actually, one of them was bobbing and weaving between two lanes. That's okay, I understand balance problems. As I am contemplating how to get around him and his bobbing and weaving, he spits. On the track. You know how they do it, they make an inordinate amount of noise and then spit. Disgusting. I remember when I first began to run in the mid 80"s. I met a woman named Narda. I really loved her. She was a steady runner who maintained her pace throughout the run. I ran one of my first races with her. She kept me from sprinting, walking, sprinting by keeping me on a pace. She told me of a man who was in front of her when he spit, it landed on her. She said she tried to stop herself, but she yelled at him for over a mile. Stop spitting. I don't do it, why do men feel a need to do it?
Radios in cars at full blast. I admit, if my windows are down, my radio is louder than when I am stopped. BUT, when I am stopped, the radio immediately is turned down. Not the car next to me, they have obnoxious music turned up so that five people behind them can hear it. I sit and debate whether I should put on opera and outblast them. I grip the steering wheel and toss them a dirty look, wondering if they are going to pull a gun from the glove compartment. (Someone I used to work with did that...he pulled a gun and aimed it at someone in the car next to him. Crazy idiot.) So, I hope that the light turns quickly and he can make his jack rabbit start and pull out way ahead of my little, slow car.
People who interrupt. There is a new person at work. Seems nice enough, I guess, although Mary said the new person makes her twitch. While waiting on a customer this woman will shove me aside so she can look for a coupon. She will interrupt my conversation with a customer to ask a complicated question and it seems difficult for her to wait until I am finished with my customer. She doesn't make me twitch....yet.
Road trip is coming up rapidly. Cannot wait to see the Iowa gang and it will be good to get to the farm again. Cedar Point is on the way home, and Matt is quite excited about the coasters there. I'm not. But then the road trip is about spending time with Alyssa, Matt and Katie and that's the best thing in the whole world!!!!
