Today is National Licorice Day!!! That's AWESOME. I want some licorice now. LOL

My Life is Average

A few days ago, I was talking to my friend in art class. She said Gwen Stefani taught her how to spell 'bananas.' I laughed, until I remembered Fall Out Boy taught me how to spell 'believe' and Aretha Franklin taught me how to spell 'respect.' Ah, music. MLIA

Today, my little sister wore one of my old coats to school. She had show and tell. What did she show them? A 5-7 year old shriveled and dried up banana that she found in the pocket. MLIA

Today, my class was supposed to do a lab. My Chemistry teacher told us that we had to be careful because it was another one of those 'You could go blind' days. MLIA.

Today at practice, the girl I was playing against swung and missed the ball I had hit. She'd been in a bad mood that whole time and I put my racket in front of my face to hide my giggling. Then I realized that you can see through a tennis racket. MLIA

Today in Spanish class, I was growing increasingly bored, so I rolled up my worksheet like a telescope and looked around the room. While my teacher was explaining something to the class, he glanced over at me. We locked eyes through the telescope and, confused, he quickly looked away. It was awkward. MLIA.

Customers are Fun

Idiots Will Leave Behind A Tell-Tale Signature
Retail | Plainville, CT, USA

(I am a cashier finishing up with a customer. I gesture for him to sign the electronic pad when paying by card.)
Me: “Okay, please go ahead and sign the pad.”
(Customer takes out an ink pen and proceeds to get ink all over the electronic pad.)
Me: “Sir, I’m afraid that won’t work. You need to use the electronic pen.”
Customer: *suddenly realizing* “Oh, I’m sorry! Look at what I did! Will this come out?”
(Before I can answer, he attempts to erase the ink several times by pushing the “clear” button.)
Customer: “Doesn’t look like it’ll come out…”

Now, I know a lot of people here are always rooting for the Lakers, but… Yesterday my son & I watched it, and I have to say, missing all those free throws… In a row. And man, that last shot could have given them the win… Don't get me wrong, that last shot was the most intense shot of the game. Heck, it was the most intense single second of my entire month so far. But he missed. And the Blazers blazed to glory.

And the crowd went wild….. raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

My son (6 years old) was cheering for the Lakers at the beginning of the game but had changed his mind by the time it hit 88-88.

Also, the moth is back. You remember….that HUGE moth outside my house:

Well, today it looked like this:

Actually, judging from its markings, I think it might be a different moth. It never occurred to me there might be more than one of these monsters flitting around. Amazing.
