Saturday

Playing in the Middle School band was not so bad. It was actually, kind of fun. I suck, but it was still kind of fun.

The carnival is going well. It's down this year, but I love my little cadre of women. We've been together for seven years now, we know each other's families and we laugh... a lot. We have two replacements and they fell right into the groove like they'd always been with us.

Seven years I've worked this. The women who work the prize room know me as my money women know me.

I had a meeting today that took me out and about for a couple hours, away from the carnival. I was wearing black leggings, black knee high boots, a big black sweater and was ready for anything coming my way.

I walked in to the prize room and this was the conversation:

Women: Woo! Look at you girl! I love those boots!

Me: Me too! My husband got them for me for Christmas! Kohl's!

Women: Those are your superhero boots!

Me: Doncha know it! I feel like I can kick some serious a$$ wearing these boots.

One of the women: Girl. We know you VERY well. YOU don't need boots to kick anyone's a$$. We've seen you in action...

*much laughter in the room*

One of the other women: Seriously, I've never seen so much energy, let alone pissed off energy that can fit into one 5 foot 2 frame.

*much more laughter*

Me, laughing: Hunh. This is after seven years... this assessment.

Women, laughing harder: OH YES!

Heh. They'll miss me. They'll miss laughing AT ME!!!

I'm glad the band gig wasn't as bad as you'd thought it would be. The boots? Pictures please? The "Seriously, I've never seen so much energy..." 5'2? Heh! I'm a half inch taller than you! Still. Your 'S' undershirt beats mine. I think I'd rather have the 'S' undershirt but my DNA didn't come with the caped crusader gene. Yup, I'm wallowing in the shallow end of the gene pool. I DID get a very loud voice that makes up for my lack of vertical altitude tho' so all's good. ;P

I bet you look great. I wish I thought I could get away with leggings. But it would make me look like an old lady trying to act like I'm much younger. Also, at my height, it's nearly impossible to get a sweater or tunic of any sort long enough to cover what needs covering when one wears leggings. LOL.

Too funny.... That was my "uniform" for years... I miss my good ole kick-a** boots. I'm only 5'1"... I actually think they empowered me... or perhaps just made me look scary.

Every Saturday morning until eight, my husband, mother-, three-year-old daughter and I bake in the Van and his work to make our weekly pilgrimage to the store. Having a family tradition set before I arrived, my shop in UK's largest retailer. We walk the aisles, which are so familiar to us, choosing what I need to Saturday. After a month, we also go to the big warehouse store to stock a large number of items, including toilet paper, kitchen towels, soap and so on.
