I love elderly folks – I really do. My favorite is seeing an elderly couple holding hands… or smooching.. or otherwise showing public displays of affection. It gives me warm fuzzies and makes me go ‘Awwww.’ I don’t think older folks get the respect they deserve, quite honestly. Too often, they are forgotten, pushed aside and otherwise disrespected – – even though these are the people who have ‘been there, done that’ and have probably forgotten more things that we, the younger generation, have yet to learn.
That being said – – please remind me to NEVER go grocery shopping in the middle of the day, ok? Normally, I go between 7-9pm at night.. when all of these wise, wonderful old people are tucking themselves into bed and aren’t moving negative 4 miles per hour in the grocery aisles. I love ’em, I really do — but today, let’s just say that I spent more time in the grocery store than I wanted to… or that I usually do. My bad. Late evenings next time – – remind me.
So I got home.. put the groceries away… made a cup of coffee and then sat down at the computer to call Chris. Since he’s in London this week and I don’t want the expense of international phone calls, we’ve been chatting either on Skype or Yahoo. A few months back, I bought this nify headset/microphone thing that has amazing sound quality for internet phoning.
So I connect it and put the headset on and click the “Call” button to call Chris. As I’m waiting for him to answer the phone.. I take a sip of my coffee and the damn mouthpiece dips into my full cup of coffee.
Total. Blonde. Moment.
Think it will dry out and be useful someday? Arrgh.
