Watch out world

It's Payday . . . I have a $10 AC Moore Rewards gift certificate that expires Sunday and a stack o' freebies to kit up, and I got stuck in an elevator this morning. Fortunately, it was just 10 minutes for me. About the time I started to think about sitting down, the door opened. Some lady had been talking to me from the outside. She was a bit more freaked out than I was. I was more of the, "I should have stayed home" mindset. While certainly not traumatic, I need some retail therapy to deal with it. Stay outta my way!

Because I suffer so that you don't have to, if you're ever stuck on an elevator, think long and hard about hitting that alarm button. I hit it, and it doesn't ring to the front desk, it sounds an alarm. And never stops sounding the alarm, until the door opens. That could be a while if you have to be rescued.

By the way, I fixed the link to the Spoonflower site. Sorry about that.

I am finally feeling better after the tooth extraction. Yesterday my mouth was KILLING me. I was taking Anacin, which works wonders on my headaches, but was not working too hot on the dental pain. So I headed over to trusty WebMD, plugged in my symptoms and they seemed to suggest dry socket, which sounded life threatening, LOL. I woke up yesterday in pain, so I wasn't looking forward to another night of that. So I went over. Hotness monster dentist looked at it, irrigated it, and then said, "You need to take Advil, not aspirin. And three of them, not two." And, by golly, he was right! I was finally able to function last night. I even managed to eat eggs and bacon! They were the best bacon and eggs EVER! Not that ice cream isn't yummy, but bacon is the BOMB. HTB asked, "Why did you get cherry vanilla? The cherries aren't even real." I told him I had limited options, and that that was for medicinal purposes, so that I could heal. This was followed by, "But they're not even r-e-a-a-l-l-l-l." They were real enough that there was an empty bowl in the sink, LOL. Maybe we can get his kind this weekend.

I'm glad that you're feeling better!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
