I didn’t save my shenanagins for April Fool’s Day, either. Two days ago, somebody asked me about the benefits of ebooks, and I told them that it means you don’t stock your family and friend’s bookshelves with books they forgot that you loaned to them. And why did you put your bookplate in their book? The nerve of you! Game over there. Ditto on streaming video. Thank you, digital age, for putting a stop to memory defunct thievery of books and DVD’s! Not to mention it’s easier for you to access it anywhere, anytime, without the issue of carrying it around or finding a place to store it. I love technology, and that’s no joke!
Now I do have a bottle of nail polish that didn’t work out for me, and you’re welcome to that if you want to steal it. I only used it once, and even Chloe cringed when she saw it. I asked for pink. It looked pink. It went on my nails red. Plus, the stuff turned my nails yellow, so I’m waiting for my nails to “air out” and go back to normal. Joke’s on me. Lesson learned. I forsee me going into another “not messing with nail polish” phase now. My left heel is still healing from the plantar fascia, so I might just enjoy a break from nail polish until I’m ready for sandals again. Shouldn’t be much longer, as it’s healing faster this time.
At least it’s not as bad as the time we meant to paint our mud room in the old house soft yellow. It was a beautiful pastel in the can, and brighter than a solar flare once the paint dried. What the heck? Not only did we have to put blinds on the door window to keep from blinding our neighbors, but we needed sunglasses in that room. It was starting to fade a bit by the time we sold the house about 5 years later, but it was still brighter than Zack’s feathers. How does that happen? Is there alien DNA in paint? All I know is that it’s another way the joke was on us!
My Midland Weather Radio didn’t want to cooperate with me this morning. It registered dead batteries, which blew my mind because it’s plugged into the wall. Turns out, one end was plugged into the wall – and the other end was plugged into the headphone jack, so it’s been running on battery power for over a year! Dope! I keep messing up my passwords and pin numbers today too. Three days of housecleaning and cutting back on soft drinks are serving up scrambled brains. Now the house is clean, I’m sleeping better, and my pants are looser, but my mind is chaos. I need to get Humpty Dumpty back together before more shenanigans ensue, eh? It's already bad enough that I told the woman that pulled the parking stunt on me today to put her driver's license back in the Cracker Jack box she got it out of. Yes, I did. She made that mistake in a parking lot and then decided to strut in front of me going in the resturant. She was so horrified that she didn't say a word. I did it in front of my mother, too. I'm not very proud of that. But you have to admit that snapping was inevitable after experiencing such inconsiderate behavior in a motor vehicle five times in three days.
I try to make light of it, but the truth is that this hasn't been a good week. Everything collapsed on me at once, people are driving like selfish jerks, and it looks like I'm the only one with stuff to do. It's frustrating. I've got to get it together better! I know. I'm trying. Tomorrow is a new day with new mercies, and boy do I need them.
Watch your back for those annoying pranks today, from others or life itself. Then again, you may want to watch it everyday because life knows no date when it comes to pranking us …
That’s all today. Take care, and have a great rest of the week.
