Today, especially tonight; thoughts and prayers to those who were in the path of that devastating tornado.
Hey; it’s on time!! My Sunday post is done on Sunday. Yeah me! lol
This is just a continuation from last week. Jake starts to work the crowd.
I try to be as I am, charming to the point of being obnoxiously nice, no doubt helping me get my way through life. I start working my charm.
Down off the platform into the friendly crowd I go. There doesn’t seem to be any ill willed anti-Patterson folks here to disrupt what has been a very good day for me.
From about ten feet away, an older man yells out, “You have my vote!” I make my way towards him, extending my hand.
I can say I am starting to pay more attention to my surroundings. The more you get to really think about what goes on around you, the funnier life really is. For instance this morning, I drove up to the big menu at the McDonalds drive thru like I have many times before. I still had sleepiness flowing from my body…when I heard the nice lady at the drive thru ask me, ” Would like one hash round for $.99 or two for $1.00? ” I was still half asleep when I was asked this question, and for some reason it did startle me. I had to think for a second and really decide on which choice I was going to make.
No more than 20 seconds went by and I answered quite forcefully, “I’ll get back with you on that.” Get back to her? WTF was there to get back to her about. Of course I was going to get two of them. So, hurriedly I told the kind lady that I was going to go with the two for a dollar. Why must life be so difficult at 10 am in the morning?
