It is the bra off, sweats on, wine drinking, blog post writing portion of the evening.
And it is Lame Post Friday.
As regular readers may have noticed, I do not always write my blog posts in sweats and no bra (ooh, I just flashed on that Most Interesting Man in the World, “I don’t always drink beer…”). Many times I write my posts while on a break at work. Many times I do not specify how I am dressed when I post. However, today I do not have a whole lot to post about, so I led with the setting.
Earlier tonight, Steven and I were at a notorious big box store which needs no plug from Mohawk Valley Girl. I only mention it because it took MUCH longer than reasonably expected. And I did not expect it to be short and sweet. However, it was not too heinous, for which I have my Christmas Spirit and sense of humor to thank. Or perhaps it was the tiny glass of wine I had before shopping (say it ain’t so!).
I am getting a little bit of Christmas Spirit. I have been listening to Christmas music on CD as I drive to and from work (I know, how 20th century of me). I have been noticing and appreciating Christmas lights on people’s houses. I have been planning Christmas presents (Naughty status of friends and family notwithstanding).
My sense of humor really kicked in, however, as the check-out line took longer than walking over the whole store for the stuff on our list. Every cash register was frozen and the lines stretched further than the eye could see. At long last we were leaving.
“And it’s only December 4th!” I said. I laughed all the way to the car.
