It was a wet day today. I got rained on and got very wet. I got caught over at my grandson’s house when it started sprinkling. Never trust a few sprinkles in Texas. I got under a tree until the few sprinkles passed. They turned into a deluge, and I was forced to make a run for my house. I did have a covering over my head, a child’s raincoat, a very small child’s raincoat, at that.
Knowing I would most likely get rained on again when I went into town for supplies at Home Depot, I decided not to change clothes before I went. I was so wet and cold in their air-conditioned store. In a hurry to leave, I left some of my purchases at the counter, and must go back tomorrow to pick them up. Oh well, an opportunity to do more shopping…
My son and I had lunch at a Chinese food restaurant. I was surprised that I would be able to eat most of the dishes on the buffet as they were made of lean meats and vegetables. Of course, I didn’t have to heap my plate so much, but feel like I didn’t overeat too much. A bowl of watermelon and some turkey chili finished off the day.
I did come home and took a warm shower. Before I got in the shower a marketing lady called me (again), and I told her I wasn’t interested. She kept on talking and talking, but seemed so nice I didn’t want to be rude to her, so I told her I had gotten wet and was going to take a shower. She kept talking. I said, “I’m taking a shower now, but I won’t hang up on you if you want to keep talking.”
She kept talking. Part way through my shower I heard her say, “hello, hello…I don’t hear anything…”
She gave up on me, and when I came out of the shower, she was gone. Not to be daunted, however, she called me back in a few minutes. I didn’t pick up, and she gave up.
Some people talk so much they don’t check to see if anyone is really listening.
