I actually wrote a whole post in my head while at work today. I even told it to a co-worker, you know, not word for word, but the gist of it. I did not go so far as to write it down, but I daresay I could remember it. However, I thought of the above-used title on my way home from work. I thought it might be appropriate for the afternoon and evening I had envisioned, and it turned out to be true.
Steven worked until six, and we planned to meet to Christmas shop using a one-day-only coupon. The details of where and how are not important. For one reason, it is not one of the small, distinctive local businesses in which I delight. I’m sorry that I do not exclusively shop at such establishments. I mean, I’m not apologizing about it, I truly am regretful that I do not. Be that as it may, I will tell you about my gyrations thus far today, and that will serve as this week’s Lame Friday Post.
I went straight home from work at three and took my dog, Spunky, for a walk. He only wanted to go to the end of the street and back, but at least that is further than the end of the driveway and back. I felt a huge need to exercise, so I changed into running clothes and ran in place on the mini-tramp, while watching part of an episode of Snapped. It was not too cold or rainy to run outside, but I did not want to leave my dog twice in one evening.
After a shower and the usual trauma over what to wear, I got on the computer to check my Facebook notifications and email. The Facebook check was not purely frivolous, you know. A friend had messaged me a cookie recipe, and I intended to purchase ingredients as part of our Christmas shopping spree. Of course, it was partly frivolous. I also wanted to see how many Likes I got on my status of “The three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote: Stink! Stank! Stunk!” But I digress.
Leaving the house shortly after five, I walked to where I was meeting Steven. It had gotten colder, and the wind had picked up. I enjoyed looking at Christmas lights on houses as I walked. I started shopping without Steven, and he joined me already in progress. We bought a lot of stuff. No, I’m not going to tell you what! People on my gift list sometimes read my blog, you know.
Now we have shopped, eaten, and are enjoying a glass of wine and watching another episode of Snapped. I think Oxygen shows them all night long on Fridays. I don’t believe I will stay up all night to see, though. I’m tired. Happy Friday, everyone.
