Desoto Square Mall - Skylights


We had lunch Saturday under the Mall Skylights
Joys of old age..

I have more knowledge but no one wants to hear it. My friends Think they have more knowledge, but I don’t want to hear it.

In our “old age” our  "Irritation Gene" has developed a ‘hair trigger” .

 Bob and I both suffer from this  and sometimes our home sounds like the Gunfight at the OK Corral. And a few minutes later we don't even know why we were irritated...at what or with each other...




We also get irritated at inanimate objects.  Shovels that will not shovel, Doors that are hard to open or close...even automated garage doors that refuse to STAY DOWN when we are backing out..

Or when we try to step in our jeans or underwear, the clothing fights with us refusing to let one foot go through the hole......

causing us to trip and as Molly the Wolly would say, HBO words flow from our mouth. I want to rip them, or  Kick them across the room but I know if I do I might injure my foot or even throw out my back. OR heaven help fall on the floor myself.

Heaven help the inanimate object I drop on the floor for the 3rd time..there goes the HBO words again...

This  is not me, it has to be that Hair Trigger on the irritation gene!

How is your irritation gene????

I usually don't get irritated by things, only by people.

Hmm, I think I know this gene! My mom certainly has it, and I think I am becoming acquainted with it! Lately I get mad at my cell phone a lot. I have nicknamed it dummy, but truth be told, it is me that is techno-challenged.

I am pretty calm, my hubby and son are the ones with the irritation gene..Cute post. Have a happy day!

Molly TheWally said...

LOL and the thing that really gets us is you kick at the inanimate object and end up hurting yourself. More HBO words then follow. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly

Under that mall skylight everything would be just alright. My dad was struggling with things breaking down in their house once and my mom told him it was no wonder as he had damned everything in it at one time or another.

TexWisGirl said...

pretty bad, sometimes. :) i do like the 'hbo words' that molly labeled well. :)

love those photos, too. great geometric shapes and shadows.

LindyLou Mac said...

Mine has improved, after the last couple of difficult years I have had. Made me realise, life is too short to be easily irritated. :)
Great photo today!

JMD said...

My gene is fine but my husband has a bunch!

SweetMarie said...

My irritation gene kicked in early I guess. lol Mine kicks in when hubby and son ask where something is because they don't want to look more than ten seconds to find it, but know that I will find it.
Love these pics! Is this at a mall?
hugs!

I live in a condominium with thin walls so people learn new words every so often in here lol when I get in those moods and the bf don't mind either he says it gives him a heads up to stay as far away from me as possible. lol

The feelings are mutual as well then we laugh about it later teasing the thought that we must be possessed and the devil is toying with our peanut. lol

ah The human body and mind can be so much fun some times and annoying in other times. =0)

My gene is getting stronger and stronger with each passing day. I don't like it and I know Mark doesn't like it either. His is pretty strong too!!!!

Madi and Mom said...

MOL MOL MOL MOL MOL MOL MOL YOU HAVE NEARLY MADE MOM BUST HER SIDES LAUGHING. WHEN THEY WERE HANDING OUR NON IRRITATION GENES DAD WAS NAPPING. ESPECIALLY TRYING IS THE NEW HIGHLANDER. EVERYTHING IS THE CAR'S FAULT. IF HE FORGETS TO TAKE THE BRAKE OFF IT BEEPS..."STUPID CAR", THE BRAKE SHOULD NOT BE FOOT RELEASE...MOM REMINDS HIM HIS OLD CAR HAD FOOT RELEASE BRAKE... THE CAR BEEPS FOR EVERYTHING NOT DONE IN THE CORRECT ORDER "WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS CAR"? DAD DOESN'T LIKE TO BE CAUGHT MAKING A MISTAKE. GRACIE IS SHARP SHE CATCHES EVERYTHING.
MY PEEPS VOTED..THEY WERE #295 AND 296 AT THEIR POLL. I VOTED TOO.
HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF

Gail said...

At any given moment I can use HBO words, too.

Cranberry Morning said...

That is so hilarious! Science has come a long way to have identified that gene. I have it. It's evident whenever I can't get this new hip to cooperate and have to use my sock putter-onner.

Ginny said...

I love the brilliant sky through the skylight. I am the same! I am always struggling with inanimate objects. The jeans are a big one, getting one leg in each hole. Plus the salt shaker, the computer, lots of other things!! It is not ME, it is THEM!!

Montanagirl said...

I think mine sounds a lot like yours! LOLOL!!!

barbara l. hale said...

I'm pretty calm about things, but I think that's because I know a number of HBO words and have no problem letting them fly instead of getting mad. But, you know, the older I get... I hear you and understand.

This post made me smile and reflect, Sandra!

DeniseinVA said...

I am chuckling at this post. I was always considered a person who had the patience of a saint, now the saint is wagging a finger at me ;)

Chatty Crone said...

That is funny - you are right sometimes we get mad over things and like you - when we look at it - we don't even know why.

Linda said...

They call us mellow yellow - that's right. Guess we skipped those genes or maybe we have the attention span of a knat! Bet you two are a hoot to watch!!

Ann Thompson said...

this made me laugh. I'm familiar with the irritation gene but my hair trigger isn't as touchy as it used to be. I normally get more irritated with people than I do with objects

carolann said...

I get irritated with people too like I am a saint. I don't think so.

So I try to bite my tongue when others irritate me. Like cars that what to go faster then speed limit. Old ladies at the variety store who want to buy lottery tickets. They hold up the whole line. And all I wanted was a newspaper.

At the doctors office have not got there O.H.P. card ready as they cant find it.

Oh, my, you must have been on a roll with this one. It is hilarious! I have a hair trigger, too!
