Assorted Thoughts 1

This is something I’m going to try and do more often: post a collection of all the random thoughts floating around in my head/my phone.

Have you ever had that moment when you’re not in a big enough hurry to ask to cut in front of someone in the express lane, but just enough to stand there displaying your single pack of bread like a new baby?

When I get really tired, I’m like one of those talking dolls that repeats a handful of phrases.

Somebody: Oh, it’s starting to rain outside.

Me: OK!

Me: Thank you!

Somebody: Cantaloupes are 1.99 here.

Me: I don’t understand.


It seems like, if “folks {were} linin’ up outside” the Love Shack, that would make the whole loving aspect pretty awkward.

*Knock, knock, knock* “Hey, are you guys almost done in there? We’re waiting!”
