Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen things I've learned (or relearned) in the last 24 (and a few) hours

1. Hearing someone gasp when they open a birthday gift from you feels REALLY good.
2. Seeing a booger hanging out of the snobby lady's nose who's treating the cashier poorly can be smugly satisfying.
3. Someone paying you back money they owe you just prior to going to a concert can be a bad thing as you're liable to spend it frivolously at said concert.
4. Being somewhere with too many "no" things with a toddler can be completely exhausting.
5. Sometimes having too much work to do can be so overwhelming that you don't get anything done.
6. Having a sad dream at night can stay with you the entire day.
7. Having tulips slowly opening on your desk is delightful.
8. Suddenly remembering you owe someone money is not the best feeling in the world.
9. Wearing high heeled boots for running errands at lunch is not the best.
10. Always keep some feminine protection at work or in your purse.
11. Comfortably sitting at a table with your sister listening to live music you both love is one of the pleasant moments of life.
12. Sometimes simple decorations on cupcakes are just going to have to be okay as you absolutely must rush out to pick up your sister RIGHT NOW.
13. Not taking the time to eat supper can make a bun with jam at 11:30 at night seem like some of the best food you've ever eat.

Bonus: Forgiving someone for horribly bad grammar and poorly written sentences in a Thursday Thirteen that was written in 13 minutes is a gratifying feeling.

I wholeheartedly agree with #11 (and others, but that one stands out).

I forgive for any errors, imaginary or otherwise - it's just very nice of you and H to both have a new post just when I need something to read, stranded at the Denver airport ...
