It's been a helluva week around here. I've had some fun and some stress, so I guess it all evens out in the wash. (Damn! I forgot about all that laundry! Ugh!). It'll have to wait until my return from the Mart.
I received an email this week asking if I planned on bringing back the Friday Secrets. I would love to. Maybe not every single Friday, but what if I collected them until I had a handful or so, then posted? firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in sending in a secret. Or, hell, if you just want to chat. It can take me a day or two to reply to regular email (I never reply to secrets), so just know I'm the queen of procrastination.
I do have a funny story before I head out. On Tuesday, I had planned to run by the Kroger in St. Albans to pick up a few things and a prescription for the Evil Twin. Well, I had a stomach bug or food poisoning or something because I felt like crap. I asked the Evil Twin if he would mind going by and getting the few things after work.
I'm sure pharmacies everywhere are like ours. With all the medical privacy laws, there is a sign about 3 feet from the counter asking the next person in line to stand THERE for privacy of the person ahead of them. So, being a rule following sort of fellow, he stood THERE. The woman in front of him apparently had a blue million questions. He did overhear her asking about expiration dates on several of her truckload of pills.
The woman was wrapping up her business, making her purchase and some guy swooped in and practically hopped up on her shoulder. He even put his other items on the counter - before she was even finished! The clerk said nothing even though the Evil Twin (at over 6 feet and about 250lbs) had been CLEARLY standing there for about 20 minutes.
The Evil Twin just about had a stroke. He yelled, "Am I invisible? I'm standing right here!"
Doofus line cutter: "I didn't see you."
TET: "You didn't see me? I've been standing here for 20 minutes to give this lady her privacy while she dealt with the pharmacy. Did you not see this sign?" (he then proceeds to turn the sign around and read every word very slowly).
DLC: "Well, you can go ahead of me, if you want."
TET: "You're damn straight because I WAS HERE FIRST." At this point, he brushes his arm across the counter and sends most of the DLC's items flying. By this time, he had completly lost it and by all accounts, the air was turning blue.
Then, Lady he had shown courtesy for speaks up, "I think you should watch your language."
TET: "I don't think it's any of your business. Besides, I was standing back at the sign to be courteous to YOU."
The entire store had stopped shopping to gawk at the scene unfolding.
Um, yeah.....I don't think we'll be using that pharmacy any more.
