still wandering the desert alone
January 16, 2007
This weekend I was out shopping and came across this beauty.
A couple was standing next to me and they laughed.
“Isn’t it a great glass?” she asked.
“Ohmygod, YES!” I replied, thinking I had found my people.
“I’m going to buy it. It would be perfect for a fish!” she exclaimed.
A fish? Seriously?
“Oh see, I thought it was perfect for an evening martini. You know after the kids are in bed and can’t fetch me a refill.”
She gave a nervous laugh, like she thought I might be crazy, which duh.
And so I said, “I have seven kids.”
“Ooooooh. Okay.” and she nodded. And quickly walked away.
Perhaps my new tagline should be, Alienating people since 1969.
(Also, we bought a tivo. So if you never hear from me again that’s because I am busy making sweet sweet love to my tivo.)
