You Are Only Given a Little Great Spark of Madness

So, I was on my way to the doc's office today when I fell behind a vehicle with this bumper sticker:

I LOVE MY WIFE

As opposed to what . . . . .

Then I looked over to my left where I see a lady riding on the back of a motorcycle. She wore a sweatshirt, mind you it was on backwards. I suppose this is not very odd in and of itself, I mean, obviously she was chilly. However, she put the hood up over her face as they drove off for the highway . . . . .

At the doctors office I received paperwork as one normally does. I sat down in a very empty chair with a very empty chair next to me. I, obviously, was in what used to be one very empty chair and I placed my book, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and my purse on what used to be the other very empty chair next to mine. Promptly, as if on cue, the lady with the AARP card who had been arguing with the receptionist about her AARP card, tuned and snapped at me, "CAN I HAVE MY CHAIR BACK!" With no intonation of a question at all. I think I turned 50 shades of red and mumbled an immediate apology along with feigning ignorance about not knowing she was sitting there while I tried to gather up my things before her bottom hit. To which she replied, "well, no. You wouldn't know I was sitting there, because I wasn't sitting there" . . . . .




Is it Freaky Friday? The day has only just begun . . . . .

Depending on how old and how spry the AARP lady was I would probably have told her to "try and take it back granny." Just to see her reaction. LOL

Somes days you feel like you should've just stayed in bed. I bet you were wishing AARP lady had done just that.

Well I know lots of guys who seem to totally HATE their wives...

Jen said...

Jay: she was already in the process of sitting down on. my. things. before I had the chance to even gather them up. She wasn't waiting for nobody or nuttin'!

Suze: mean, mean AARP lady.

etk: this old lady wasn't going to even let me move my stuff! I had to get out my cat-like lightening moves in order to save my things!

Uninspired. That's where I be right now.

rock chef: true. But to announce it? I just found that odd. . . Maybe I'm odd. . . ?

Once again you have failed me grasshopper. Stop apologizing to rude morons when they're being rude morons. They're the rude moron, not you, remember?

Isn't it funny how old people can basically say whatever they want and no one is gonna scold them? I can't wait to be super old!

Well then it's not really can I have my chair "back" then is it? It's more like "Give me that chair!"
