Well ok, maybe it is just funny or "annoying" to me, but here goes. Earlier this week, while I sat in a dr's office waiting for one of my children, I couldn't help but overhear a conversation. There were two women, and they were talking rather loudly for a small office. I wasn't purposely trying to listen. Anyway, they were talking about the fact that one of them was building a house and the other one is about to build. I know that doesn't sound funny, but bear with me. They were talking about colors, floor plans, and then one of them said and I quote...." well I just told my husband that we should go ahead and get started building.....so what if we have two mortgages for awhile". THAT my friends is FUNNY to me! Two mortgages????? The housing industry is HORRIBLE, the economy is bad, people are without jobs left and right, and she doesn't care if she has two house payments!!!! What I really wanted to do was give her my friends number and tell her to call someone that actually DOES have two mortgages and has been trying to sell her other house for a year! Then again, this person probably has alot of money and it is no big deal. Does anyone else find this hysterically absurd?
Today, I ran to the mall to get a birthday present. I normally avoid the mall. We have two wonderful freestanding shopping centers now that are so much nicer. Had I known that 'Limited 2' is now 'Justice for girls', I would not have set foot in the mall today. Anyway, now I remember one of the reasons I hate the mall. Since when did it become ok for us to be accosted by vendors that are in the middle of the mall? You know the ones I am talking about...the little carts!!! I went to one store and I was tracked down by 3 different people. One lady tried to sell me some Deep Sea cream, another guy wanted to show me a curling iron thingie, and a man almost ran straight into me trying to sell me some sort of blanket that he was holding near his nose. Are they scented????? Anyway, I HATE that you can't even walk to the store you are wanting to go to without being stalked. It is awful! I decided after shopping at the store that is no longer the store I thought it was, that I was going to pull a "Christy". I totally deserved a latte'!!!! And it was Delicious! ;)
