1. Saw someone driving around with “No Drama” spelled out on their back window–in 2ft glitter letters.
2. A mother playing the crane game at Walmart–her poor toddler is asking (nicely I might add), “Please momma, let me. I wanna try.” Mom’s answer? “No, you can’t do it. You’re no good.” BTW–Mom didn’t snag any of the exciting “prizes” either. It is a freakin’ game lady. Way to build your kid’s self esteem.
3. Again, another winner from Walmart. Mom to young child: “Shut the f— up or I will smack you upside the head.” Wonder what that kid will be like in school.
Think if I buy a pair of red slippers at Walmart and click my heels three times I’ll be magically transported back to New York? Or at least far away from Killeen?
Well…at least in Temple (about 20 minutes away).
After a rough start to the day (I ran into Labor and Delivery because a friend was having regular contractions at 28 weeks and her husband is in another state right now) and some work stress (basically one of my clients wants something RIGHT NOW even though that was never agreed upon and the only reason it is not done is because of my editors, not me), I got to listen to some amazing classical music.
Two friends and I went to Beethoven, Barbecue, and Blue Jeans, with the Temple Symphony Orchestra.
When we called, we found out that the Orchestra even gives FREE admission to military and families.
Not only is the orchestra high quality…they had an excellent soloist from the Netherlands who has even studied with Itzhak Perlman.
They played Weber’s Overture to Der Freischutz, Tchaikovsky’s Violin concerto in D Major, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor.
Baby Girl (who is getting closer to having a name) seemed to enjoy as well…she was kicking and wiggling all over the place!
I will have to make point attend more of their concerts next year.
Well, I just finished my warm (caffeine free) chai…so I am off to bed. Have a blessed Sunday.
