Are you ready for another round of Friday Mocktails? Has anything - or anyone - happened to you in these last few weeks that have driven you out of your normally perfectly composed state of mind?
Here are bits and pieces of randomness whine from my end these past few weeks -
Out-of-the-blue business trips that required me to pack in about five minutes, which basically meant I was trying to figure out different ways of wearing the same two random tops and bottoms in different professional ways for four days straight. It helped that since I had zero bag space to work with, I felt the uncontrollable urge to pack my neon pink sweatshirt - and its neon tee counterpart. Oh, and I sprained a toe so badly that I couldn't fit into closed-toe shoes, but that's cool, because then everyone got a real good look at my toe in all its swollen shade of blue glory.
We carpooled for a lunch outing last week in a co-worker's truck - a raised F-150 with no floor boards. And I was wearing a pencil skirt. Of course I looked like a lady getting in and out of that thing.
I love you BF. There is sooo much good and smart about you. But why is it that you can never find your own car keys, or sunglasses, or wallet, or a pair of matching socks, or a pen when you need one, your phone, where you set down your coffee, where the remote is ...
The slow realization that I am not getting any younger, which means though I feel like I have the mind of a 6th grader, unfortunately I don't have the energy or bones of one. Three hour long roadtrips kill me - my back, my butt, my knees.
I had to participate in a telecon sitting in my parked car the other day as I couldn't make it back to the office in time. I had the windows rolled down so I could get some air but I was very evidently in the middle of something - phone on my ear, laptop on. During this call, one of the people in the office I just had the meeting with came out for a ciggie break and walked right up to my car, asked if I was on the phone - yes, I nodded with my phone still to my ear and talking to the people on the other end - and he proceeded to then ask me about my license plate and if I liked my car. Really? Can we seriously do this another time ...?
At the dog park over the weekend, I managed to step on a sharp stick with one foot and stab myself in the other foot with it.
So what about you ladies for this Friday Mocktail session? What do you want to vent about, big or small? Any griping /grumbling / moaning / general mocking you want to share with your fellow commiserators over a virtual round?
