The Mice Will Play

The boss is gone for the afternoon and it’s sunny and 72 degrees outside.  He’s probably going to call in this afternoon to check on me so I can’t go far or be gone too long.  So, I guess it’s going to be a trip to the bank and a walk around the Square to do some people watching.  The exercise will be good and it’s always good to feel the warm sunshine on your face.  People watching in downtown is one of my most favorite activities.  I sit on a bench and just watch the people walking by.  You’d be amazed at the things you see.  Last week I watched a skateboarder doing his tricks while talking on a cell phone.  Not a cell phone with a headset thing in his ear . . he was actually holding the cell phone to his ear while he was doing his tricks.  It was the most amazing demonstration of coordination that I’ve ever seen.  Heck, I can hardly walk through my house without tripping over a dog toy – or a dog – without falling down and this guy was flipping a skateboard and carrying on a conversation at the same time.  Amazing!! 


Then there are the fashion victims to take a gander at.  Yes, I know it’s not nice to stare at people, but sometimes I just can’t help it.  You can’t tell me that those people don’t expect to be stared at when they go outside looking like that.  I’m not going to mention all the various fashion offenses that I see on a daily basis, but just let me just say that no white girl has ever looked good in cornrows . . . and that includes Bo Derek. 


Oh, yea, the cold is a little better.  I actually feel better than I did on Monday, but now I have these wicked coughing spells.  They come from no where and I can’t get them to stop no matter how much water I swallow or how much cough syrup I take.  I end up coughing so hard that my eyes water and my nose starts to run.  I know, great visual, but what can I say . . . that’s my life at this point.  The fits last for about 5 minutes and are usually about 3 hours apart.  Hubby isn’t sure which is worse – my coughing fits in the middle of the night, or the snoring because my nose is clogged.  I’m thinking it’s the getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom because of all the water I’ve been drinking to counter the effects of the meds that are supposed to be drying up all this congestion.  


Okay . . . time to go out and play.  Wonder what wonderful sights I’ll see today.
