There are times that I forget I even have a UPS mailbox. Today I was reminded when the UPS store happened to call me with a not-so-subtle reminder to get my crap out of their store.
Lo and behold — I have gifts to pick up.
Life.. why are you so complicated and shit?
Pried myself from the comforts of my plush microfiber couch – bathed and groomed myself , to a version of Mz Devious, that’s more suitable for public appearance — got into the car — started it up and backed out of my driveway.
(are you sympathizing with my exhaustive plight ?)
— and then I drove a journey of 4 miles —
All of that , just to recover (from those whiny complainers over at the UPS store )
a lone brown box.
On the positive side – a surprise is still very nice, and who doesn’t love a surprise ?
waynie sent a pair of capezio dance sneakers, when I added them to my wish list I was in one of my ADHD fueled and over zealous (-but soon to lose interest- like everything else ) ” I want to go to take a few master dance classes, like the old days and re-live my youth .. because dancing is fun, and I’m good at it ” type of mood .
Then I remembered that I am in Florida now – which is not easily accessible to NYC from the Path train or subway . Oh – but I still looked for classes to take down here , but all I could find was Geriatrics Jazzercise ( nope ) and Arthur Murray.. ( not looking to foxtrot )
Well that’s my story , nothing too earth shatteringly important
*Is shatteringly even a word? Spell check seems to think so, I’ll reference Google on that *
Lilith found enjoyment from the gift , gnawing on the cardboard box with delight .
So glad to share the merriment .
