Is What They Say About Fridays Is Really True...........

So I got up this morning and thought to myself *Thank God It’s Friday". Just a couple of small things to do and then I’m good to go. Uh-Huh. Famous last words.

Grabbed my thermos mug of tea and proceed to walk to the computer room tripped over my slipper(which I was wearing) The mug went flying, tea sprayed everywhere, I was sprawled in a most inelegant heap with a few unladylike words on my tongue and wondering what kind of klutz I really was to preform such a feat!

After a few deep breathes and an analysis that proved I was not damaged other than pride, I got to the task of cleaning up my precious cup of tea and right the damage. Sigh. So in every life a little rain must fall . Right? Right. Brewed another cup of tea and started back to the computer room once again.

I did my morning Red Bubble Run which I always enjoy, filed paper and paid a couple of bills feeling like I had suffered a form of Bank Robbery and then promptly SPILLED my remaining tea on my desk blotter!!! I mean seriously!!! Another few blistering curses I got that cleaned up and I refrained from making another cup. Enough was enough.

Well from there I happened to look out the living room window in time to see the neighbor trip over her dog who she was out walking on a leash. So I raced to the front door(keep in mind I was still in a nightgown and house coat) to see if she was OK.. She was just kinda laying there all quiet like and then finally called back at me “Well, how do I look when I’m taking a header?” At which point I couldn’t help myself I started to laugh and so did she. I asked her if the dog was going to survive the day and she said that was still under consideration, got up off the street and carried on brave girl with only a little limp.

As she was leaving I heard a very loud wolf whistle!! Jeez. Sure enough there were two guys coming from the walkway, Heaven knows who they were, getting a right chuckle at my outfit. Of course where is a good hole to hide in when you need one? Death by embarassment didn’t seem too far fetched at that moment I might add. So I retreated back inside with my dignity wrapped around like a cloak.

All of a sudden the smoke detector went off and scared me near to death. The kitchen looked quite smoky. Who could ave guessed that I set the timer on the toaster oven for way too long and my toast was charred beyond a recognized food group.

I have now cleared the smoke from the house. Dressed and brushed my hair. Refuse to make any more tea or wear my slippers for the rest of this day. Now I have a real dilemma. I need to go grocery shopping…….. Suggestions
