My son’s Christmas package still hasn’t arrived at my house. It did however spend two days in my fair city. After last righting about the package it spent two more days in Indianapolis before being sent to my town. It then spent two days here before going back to that Indy town. All I can guess is – the package is a racing fan.
Guess is all I can do since FEDEX doesn’t have a clue. The place I ordered it from doesn’t answer their phone and the local Post Office, which I am told will do the local delivery, is full of idiots.
It as lost in a FEDEX truck and they found it in time to be delivered for Christmas. So all is well that ends well. It was a TNA T Shirt by the way.
Today is National Cup Cake Day.
This is a holiday I can support. No religeous beliefs to fight over. No over sized chicken to cook. Not a single boiled egg. Just light fluffy small cakes with frosting.
There is one thing I like in life and it is cake with frosting. Like me – the sweeter the frosting the better. I like it so sweet it throws me into a diabetic coma just by gazing at the butter mixed with powder sugar concoction that tops my cake. Even better if the combination includes a little cream cheese also.
As you may have guessed by now I could go on forever about cup cakes but I won’t. Not because i don’t want to but it’s hard to type one handed while eating cup cakes.
I recently ordered a present for my son. I know this time of year is a busy travel time but I didn’t expect his gift to go on vacation.
The present was bought from a company who ships from Nashville. TN. I live 100 miles from Music City. The order should be here in a day or two. It has now been seven days and the gift is now farther away than when it was bought.
After buying it, FedEX sent it to Memphis. Maybe to see Graceland? Then after a day it was sent to Southhaven, MS. Why, I don’t know. After what I assume was a pleasant two days it went on to Earth City, Mo. I have never been to Earth City but it must be nice. My package stayed there four days.
Now after a week I see my son’s gift is in Indianapolis. The home of Indy racing is about 150 miles from me.
One week and now 50 miles farther then when it started.
At this rate I am sure the package will arrive for his October birthday.
Where it will arrive is anyone’s guess.
I just received my bi yearly cell phone upgrade. Now if I only knew how to make a phone call! I can take pictures. I can text people. I can instant message. I can even go on the internet (at about $50 a minute!) but how in the heck do I call someone?
I imagine AT&T has a great support line for the Mystic but – again – I don’t know how to call anyone!
Driving through a mall at Christmas time is a little like driving clockwise around a NASCAR track during a Sprint Cup race.
Idiots to the left of me seniors to the right and I am stuck in the middle with Santa.
My advice is to do all your Christmas shopping early before the clerks get mean. After a couple of weeks of long lines and no breaks even the kindest old ladies and sweetest young women get surly at the thought of ringing out another customer.
If you want a lively trip to the store wait till Christmas Eve!
It’s like feeding lions while wearing a raw hamburger suit.
Tiger just shut up. No one who watches you cares about your problems. Sleep with your wife, sleep with your girlfriend, sleep alone – I don’t care. I watch you play golf because you do it better than the other guys.
Mr. Woods don’t waste your time or mine explaining what happened. The only people who care are gossip mongers and tabloid sleazes. The sleazes want to know so they can sell more magazines. I can appreciate their efforts. The mongers are just uninteresting people with lives made up of watching the world pass by them. Don’t give them the satisfaction of peering into your life just because it is more lively than theirs.
Just go quietly into the night.
The sleazes and mongers will grasp another celebrities troubles by the tail and you will be old news.
FYI – One of the hottest searches on Google today is “transgression definition”. If that doesn’t say it all I don’t know what does.
