Time Keeps on Tickin'

Without a doubt I my favorite seasons are spring and summer. This, however, is how my mind is currently functioning:

  • today is July 24th
  • we are approaching the end of July
  • the end of July is basically mid August
  • August may as well be autumn 
  • great, it's almost winter
  • I hate hate hate cold weather
  • gross


... I believe I need to work on living in the present.

Observations while in line at Target



Mistake: running into Target on a Sunday for a few things.
Entertainment: getting in line behind this family:

  • Mom & Dad
  • Mom possibly pregnant, or just a large pregnant looking gal ... or large and pregnant.
  • 3 utterly annoying kids bouncing around
  • parents not attempting to corral or reel any of them in
  • additional kid in stroller
  • ... a bulky stroller; child must be too privileged to be thrown into shopping cart like all other mortal children
  • Dad wearing a t-shirt that says, "World's Best Wingman"
  • Are you kidding me?
  • ugh
  • What type of father of 4, (possibly 5) would wear a shirt like that?

When it rains, it pours.

Talk about a bust.
The Scene: bored on a drizzly 4th of July.
The Plan: Coke Icees from Wawa with my brother.
simple, right?
WRONG.



  • light drizzle instantly turned into pouring, cold rain.
  • midway to Wawa, my 'check engine' light illuminated.
  • Hellacious rain.
  • Coke and all other Icee flavors at Wawa were out of commission.
  • ... a rarity.
  • Decided to get my brother 2 Mountain Dews because they were on sale.
  • Sale price did not ring up at cash register.
  • Cashier resolved issue.
  • Rain continues to pour.
  • Got stuck at malfunctioning stoplight.
  • Seriously
  • ... for 10 minutes.
  • Arrived home
  • ... wet, cold, check engine light, Icee-less.
