Just when you think your having a bad day.....

Today was a day like many others......if you are a manager of people, you understand.
Solve everybody's problems, fix the broken things, and do about 30 jobs that arent really yours to do, but they need to be done, and so you do them.....................................................

I got to the end of the day.....and needed......not wanted......needed a froster.
Now, a froster is a slurpee, with soft icream in it. Yum.

I tried to ignore the need....went home, had three fish sticks for supper.......ignored the need.

Ignored the need.

Accepted the need.
Put on pants and went in search of a froster.
I went to TWO stores in my neighbourhood, only to be disappointed by the fact that both ice cream machines were broken.
THAT'S CRAP.

Decided to drive over to my parents part of town....wanted to stop in anyway.....and they live near a Macs. So I drove over, and convinced my mom, to come for a walk with me.....I was waiting for HER to put pants on ( do you notice the family resemblance?), when my little dad says, in his little voice, " well it woulda been nice if you asked me to go to."
Well....I jump......."Come on," I say, "Lets get you ready to go."
He says he needs to change his tank before he goes.....I think he is talking about his undershirt....but really he is talking about his tank of oxygen. We get him settled in his scooter, with his oxygen, and off we go.
We were about a block from home, when a truck full of men drive by, and start the cat calls.......and I think......'wow.....here I am in an old tank top, yoga pants, with messy hair.......and I still get cat calls.........that's nice, I must still have somethin.'
Then I look at my mother, and I can see, in her mind........she is thinking..........'wow....here I am in a floral blouse and capris, with messy hair......and I still get cat calls.....that's nice, I must still have somethin.'
