Odds and Ends

Nothing important enough for it's own posting, just some random stuff I've been thinking about.


Happy People

Where are these happy people I see on the WalMart commercials? None of these people work at my WalMart. In fact, I have lived in this town for 12 years and I have never seen any of these people anywhere else. Weird.
As often as I go in that damned place, you think I would know one of the people who work there. ONE!
A woman I used to work with said her sons worked there , but I never saw them there, ever.
In fact one of my neighbors claimed he worked there, but never once have I seen him there.
I seldom see the same checker twice!
Someone needs to investigate, because if there are aliens amoung us? That is where to find them.


Used Guns

There is a new store in the little strip shop plaza near my house.
There is a Dominos , a Subway, a tanning place, and a new store.
The new store is a Gun shop.
It's Texas. so it's not a shock there would be a gun store there, afterall hunting is big here , and Texans love their guns.
It's just the sign on the big banner out front.
USED GUNS
What were they used for?
Everytime I drive by, I wonder.

Mad Skills

I got some skills.
Like, I can make kids laugh.
Easily. If I want to make a kid laugh, I can. Not that nervous laugh thing either, but genuine amused laughter. It's a skill.
I can also make perfect rice in the microwave. Really!
White rice, brown rice, rice made with broth, rice with vegis, always perfect.
But never on the stove. I can't master the rice on the stove thing, but in the micro oven?
I am a genius with the rice.
And I can find things that are lost. If it's in my house, I can find it.
If my Hubby misplaced a slip of paper with a phone number on it, I can find it.
If my kid lost a plastic pokemon that is an inch high? I can find it.
If I ever saw it, I can find it.
I got skills! ( and you all thought they kept me around because I'm cute? HA!)


Beer Shower

So last time my husband was home, I had a beer shower.
I miscalculated how long it would take them to get home from the airport, and I happened to be in the shower when he got home.
So there I was in the shower, and my husband opened the shower door and said , " Hello BaaaaBY!" And then he handed me a beer, gave me a quick smooch, closed the shower and left.
So there I was in the shower with a full unopened beer.
People don't drink beer in the shower! Do they?
Then I realized that there were probably thousands of men who drink beer in the shower everyday. Then it occurred to me that my husband was probably one of those men.

So I opened the beer, took a swig, set it on the shelf, and thought about it while I washed my hair. I took another few drinks, then shaved my legs , while I thought it about it some more.
I decided that you need to have a handy shelf in the shower that is behind the showerhead , so your beer doesn't get water in it (that's important) , and that for safety you should only drink canned beer and not glass bottle.
But the more I thought about it, ( and sipped) I couldn't really find a reason not to drink a beer in the shower.
In the end, I decided I enjoyed drinking beer while showering, and that my husband is a total alcoholic for thinking of it in the first place.

I told you before, drinking in the shower is some little piece of luxury. If I'm hot, sweaty and gross, I like nothing more than having a glass of ice water while I take a nice, warm shower. It seems so decadant to me and I'm not quite sure why. :-)

Hmm. Would it be wrong to have a beer in the shower before I go to work? LOL.

Buggy, you rock so bad. I love your odds and ends. The gun shop story is funny in a scary way.

All the happy people are at Target :D I have not tried having a drink in the shower. Or a glass of wine in the bathtub, when I had a tub. You know on tv they sometimes show a woman sipping wine in a bubble-filled tub with candles all around. Does that ever happen in real life? I bet I do not have one friend that has ever done that in her life. I'm going to ask around, yesiree.

The beer shower was not what I thought it was. I'm a little disappointed. I was picturing your man standing over you pooring a keg of beer on you while you washed your hair in it. Beer is good for hair, so I hear.

Oh I drink in the tub, I just never thought about drinking in shower.
My tub is huge and it takes all the hot water in the house to fill it, so I stay in the tub for hours. I always have a big glass of ice water with me, and sometimes a glass of wine or a beer.
I just got this cool rack for my tub, it holds a drink and a book!
I feel guilty if I get out of the tub before the water cools, so I always read in there.
Listen to Luna people, take a cool drink into the shower, even if it's water, it feels decadant!

Buggy! Yay for the updates! I love this odds and ends post.

The used guns store is for hunters who have decided that their old guns don't blow the helpless animals into small enough pieces.

When I lose stuff, can I call you and ask you were it is? Or does it not work that way?

I totally thought your husband dumped beer on you in the shower.

Add to me to the camp that thought Hubby dumped beer on your head.

And, I've had drinks in the tub, never in the shower.

And, my Walmart has the same 4 people all the time. It doesn't matter what time or what day. They are working. I think they live there in sporting goods.

Buggy's involved in a drive-by? Scandalous.

*snerk*

Glad to see you back again.

You make me smile Buggy :-)
I better not tell my DH about the beer shower. I think he'd like that. I can never sit still long enough in a tub to have a glass of wine. I'm too impatient.
We have a gun shop in town. They also rent guns there. And, they sell sub-machine guns. When I first saw the signs, I freaked out. I thought, how can a person be allowed to rent a gun? One day, DH decided he had to go in, out of curiousity and asked about the rental guns. Turns out, they have a shooting range in the back. Heh. I did cry after leaving that store though. Too many guns.
