Did the World Slow Down and Not Tell Me?

I didn’t do much today.  I still don’t feel too wonderful.  After a short walk and a shower, we went shopping.  I think it happened while I was in the shower.  We had to wait forever for the bridge to come down.  I looked, but did not see a boat of any kind.  Then, every single traffic light turned red when we approached.   Everyone acted like they were 100 and senile including the sales clerks.  Not at the fabric department, but there was no one there.  People were just standing around in the food aisles.  I found myself having to reach around them to get what I needed.  They looked at me like they had no idea what I was doing.  There were lines at every register.   It was like everyone was buying food for the rest of the year.  The girl at the pharmacy didn’t know what to do with my insurance card.  She wanted me to pay full price and get them to reimburse me.  She was out of her mind.  The woman before us at the bread store was writing a check and stopped after each letter to take a breath.  I wished I had one of those big cartoon mallets to beat her into the floor.  I was so happy when I got home.  Doug got the mail.  I got two knitting magazines.  I poured myself a cup of coffee and went out to the deck.  Life is good.  So, how was your day?maudie maudie

    My day was hot and I am sick of working. I have only three days more to work and then I can pretend that I am retired for a few weeks anyway. We will get away to the lake for a week and away from the phone so nobody can try to talk me into coming in to work.
