this Post Popped in my brain at 6:30 AM today, as Bob and I stepped out ofour SUV in the Wal-Mart parking lot.
Monday thru Friday, we leave home at exactly 5:17 AM and drive to the YMCA gym. I carry driver’s license and member card in my shirt pocket.
The Y is only a few blocks from Wal-Mart. As I backed out, Bob said let’s stop in Wal-Mart and pick up the dirt for the Pool and light bulbs. We step out of the car.I say: “ oh no, I don’t have the debit card.”
We get back in the car. I pull out my two cards and behold, I have the debit card, and no driver’s license. We get out of the car and head for the door.
I say “sometimes bad news is good news. The bad news is I don’t have my drivers license, the good news is I have the debit card”.
Bad news Bob says “All you have to do is drive home without getting stopped by the police.”
I say the good news is, if we get stopped I will get out so he can see me in my workout clothes.
Bob laughs long and loud and says “that will work.” I think, EEK, I knew I looked bad, but now he is agreeing.
I say: “ the bad news is, the police will feel sorry for you and tear up the speeding ticket, but then I might get a ticket for UGLY.”
Good news is we find the fluorescent bulbs (the kitchen lights died the night before), and guess what?Bad news is NO DIRT. (for those of you with no pool, we have to BUY sand to put in the filter, the yard full of sand we have for free will clog up the pump and I will never understand why bought sand works and free sand does not.)
Good news is, I have the debit card
Bad news: at the check out the lady in front of me could not get her debit card to work, when the cashier took the card to run it through herself, she asked for her Drivers license. EEK again
Good news: she did not ask for MINE
Bad news: Installed Daylight bulbs are now showing every single mark on the counter tops and the white cabinets are now brilliantly spotlighted by the Daylight bulbs. Paw Prints jump up from the floor that were unseen with the old bulbs.
Good news is: I know how to clean glass…. Ho ho ho Santa is on the go!
Be JOLLY by golly! and have a Happy Holly Jolly Holiday Season!
