Friday, May 21, 2010


The day started way too early.  Storms woke me up at 3:45, and I did not get back to sleep before time to get up anyway.  It was while I was laying there that I discovered that a recently extracted wisdom tooth makes a pretty good barometer.

Made it through the day at work, and even got off a little early--well after only 9 1/2 hours, instead of the usual 10.  Came home and rested a bit.  

Made my weekly Wal-Mart excursion.  I spent way too much money.

I was kind of excited because this is the first Friday in a while that I've actually felt like eating.  So I bought stuff to eat.

More than just pudding and mashed potatoes, too.

For the first time in my life, I bought face cream.  Watching old Emergency reruns, they'll show a guy with gray hair and wrinkles, then say "approximate age:  35".  I'm way past 35.  So I bought face cream.  And hair dye.

Then I saw a display of T-shirts with American flags on them.  So I bought one.

Then I bought another.

If that offends you, I'll be happy to show you to the border.

Yes, we do still have them.  

On the way out, I grabbed a pack of chocolate chip cookies from the check out aisle.  I opened them in the car and ate one.  Then I remembered I should have checked the ingredients.  I checked the ingredients.  Sure enough, eggs.

So I came home and took some Benadryl, and ate them anyway.  I felt like living dangerously.

I'll check back in in an hour or two and let you know if I'm dead or not.  Now if you will excuse me, I need to go find an Epi pen.

Just in case.

LOL, since when does age 35 = wrinkles and gray hair? 35 seems awfully young for that. Sigh.

I actually like those shirts; wonder if Wally has them in vee neck?

Maybe not wrinkles, but I had started getting gray by age 35. Having kids helps that along, I think. I don't know about the shirts. Our Wally world has clearanced them out already.
