1. They say you learn something new every day. What did you
Yesterday, I learned to keep quiet. My grandson (hub's son Todd's son) came to the house after school. I always check his book bag for homework and to make sure he has his lunch bag. When I opened up his lunch bag....oh my!! the smell was horrible. I opened up his thermos and there was mold in it! What?? So I asked Nate (grandson) what on earth was this....Nate, who is in the third grade, explained that his dad and his dad's live in girlfriend had forgotten to pack his lunch and this was left since Friday in his bookbag. He explained that he knew I had put money on his lunch account so he went and bought him a peanut/butter sandwich. I about blew a gasket!!! Hub isn't feeling too well....with the chemo and he has an infection too, so I calmly said nothing aloud. I kept quiet and neither did I say anything to his dad when he pulled up to get Nate. This was something I learned, that if I had said something, hub would have gotten upset, and if I had mentioned this to his dad, his dad would not let Nate get off the bus at the pharmacy anymore....and we wouldn't see him.
Nate didn't seem to have been upset about his lunch as I was....maybe I shouldn't had been so upset!
2. Have you ever had a now or never moment? Elaborate.
I don't think so.
3. April 25th is National Telephone Day. Do you still have a land line or have you gone mobile only? When you receive a text message do you respond immediately? Last time you turned your phone off? In two or three sentences share with us a story/memory/incident from your
hard) where the telephone is featured.
Completely mobile here.
If possible, I try to respond to text message immediately...in my opinion (ahem) just shows courtesy.
A childhood memory is being on a party line. I remember waiting and waiting for someone to get off the line, but then too scared to talk to a significant other because someone might be listening.
4. Close call, at someone's beck and call, call the shots, call a meeting, call it quits, call in sick, call on the carpet, wake up call...which call have you 'heard' recently? Explain.
Close call.....I ran a red light!! Now for some background....my small town only has one red light, I have no idea how I didn't get T-boned! The red light has three lights....one for cars turning left, one for cars going straight, and one for cars going right. I was going straight but I looked at the light for cars turning left....which was green...cars going straight the light was red. I went through the red light. I looked in my back rear mirror and saw the light was red...and gasped. When pulling onto the carport....after shaking and gathering my wits, I looked up and said...."Thank you God, I know that was you." Even though I live in a small town, the red light is at the main intersection...I could have easily gotten T-Boned a close call for me!
5. What subject do you wish you'd paid more attention to in school?
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Thoughts on Wal-Mart doing your shopping for you. I went to Wal-Mart Saturday and was asked if I wanted to sign up for my personal shopper. This person would have my list, shop for me, and all I had to do was drive up and pick up my items....I would never have to leave my car. I am not a fan of Wal-Mart, but I am that lazy to do my shopping for myself....I like to talk to people and not having to go inside the store....not me...I might run into a long lost colleague. I knew some people were signing up, but this is not for me.
