I went out to lunch yesterday with a guy from work, hereís how it went:
Strike 1: I asked him what type of books he reads. He said: I donít read, I think itís a waste of time. Mmm hmm.
Strike 2: He told me he liked to watch tv. Nothing wrong with that. What does he watch? Sports, all sports, football, basketball, hockey, golf. I said what about baseball (the only sport I will consider watching on tv). He hates baseball.
Then he asked me what I liked to watch and I started talking about C-SPAN and the senate sub-committees and his eyes started to glaze over. Why does that always happen? C-SPAN is flipping fascinating. Seriously. Itís reality tv.
Strike 3: Allergic to cats. Severely.
Strike 4: Republican. It happens. But then he had to ask me if I was one of those liberals who wanted to legalize marijuana. Mmm hmmm.
Anyhow . . . . anyhow. So yeah. I am all over the place today. I feel like I should be running up and down the stairs 37 times. So far I have successfully squashed this particular urge, but just barely.
Have a great weekend Ė as for me, Iíll be at Dillardís, selling giant pairs of pants, tax free through Sunday. Think of me fondly.
