Cruising down the road…
This is my banter for August 8th.
Today was the kind of day for visiting and driving the car.. I don’t go out much, but today was my trip to see Parker my grand-baby and his mom.. Parker is growing like a weed. And he’s only three months, today.. I arrived just as he finished his bottle. He looked pretty sleepy. I interrupted his nap time. He managed to smile, and talk a bit to nana.. While I was visiting, their dog was acting very strange. She was really clingy for some reason. Turns out she is like a barometer. When a storm is coming, she wants to be very close to you.. And that she was. She does not like storms with thunder, and really has problems during the storm. The funny thing is, the weather man is calling for a storm coming our way tomorrow. I will be ready for the storm… Thanks to the dog and the weather man. While I was visiting I seen the funniest thing ever. There was a talk show on about male stripers. The male host wanted to learn a few moves from the guys. He came on stage with the stripers for his lesson. The first lesson was the tearing the shirt off. That went well as he pranced out in front of the stripers with his chest pushed out. The next lesson was doing the tear away pants. He pulled the tabs on the pants and they only came off half way. He was pulling and pulling at them, but could not get them off. Finally one the ladies pulled the pants off while he was laying on the floor. He had pale green boxer shorts under the pants. The two co-hosts were killing themselves laughing as he pranced across the stage.. You had to be there.. Honestly.. And to top it all, the host looked like a peanut next to the other stripers.
Driving my car on a beautiful day……
The host was a real good sport about the whole ordeal.. Time passed by pretty darn quick, and it was time for me to get moving along. With hugs and kisses taken care of, I was off down the road. The traffic was pretty busy on the roads. I was on my way to Costco. I sat at several sets of lights before I entered the parking lot of Costco. If I metered how busy it was going to be inside by the amount of cars on the outside, this was going to fun.. I’m not a crowds person. I get way too tired after being in one for a bit of time. And I mean a bit… I found a handy cap spot, after only once around the parking lot. That’s pretty darn lucky. I usually have to park quite far away from Costco. I armed myself with the short list of items I needed to pick up. Got a cart, and there in front of me was a very packed store. Moms and children, dads with children, the older set of folks, the cart racers, and the aisle dwellers.. These shoppers come in every shape you can imagine. The basket ball shopper, the short shoppers, the digging shoppers (the ones that leave the table a total mess of the nicely stacked clothing, because the top on the bottom of the pile might be better than the top one) It’s true there out there.. I make my way to my first item, and there was an aisle dweller. I negotiated my cart past the dwellers as soon as I had a clear way.
Racing through the store…
I needed to my next thing on the list.. I cut a path behind all the busy shoppers, and went where the freezers were. I was making good time. Buns, in the cart and off I went. Next, pork chops. That took a few minutes as I picked through the top packages. Found a good one and under twenty bucks. I zigged and zagged through the traffic, to the potatoes. I looked over the bag, then sniffed it for any bad potatoes. The only thing I could smell was good clean earth. Next, crackers.. This was a little harder and took more time than I wanted it too. Finally I found them in the middle of the aisle, got it, and off to the next item.. Fruit and that was in plain sight.. I did good all items in cart. Now to the check out.. Every check out was backed up.. I stood patiently as a lady beside was doing the Zumba while she waited. It took fifteen minutes till I reach the cashier. With in a minute or two I was out of there and heading to my car.. On my way to the car I could hear someone honking their horn, and not just once or twice. I turned my head to see a lady in a white car blocking a lady in who needed to get out. This lady in the white car, was the worst picture of inconsiderate that I have ever seen. She would not move for the lady who wanted out. Two people let her know the lady wanted out, and had to leave. But, nope.. She would not move for her. The lady in the white car did move ahead to let another lady out. That car was right beside the one she still had blocked in.. Go figure, what was wrong with that woman! Then she backs right in beside the lady she had been blocking. The lady in the white car got out of her car and hurried into the store. By the time I left the lady who was blocked in was waiting for her confiner to come out from the store. Exciting day.. Wow! Some people can be so rude..
Traffic on the roads..
The high way looked more like a race way. There were car darting in and out between cars. I picked a lane on the road and stuck to it all the way home…. I safely made a soft landing in my drive way. And so, my adventure was over for this week. Till we meet again… Be safe.. 🙂 🙂
