When your destination is a 12 min drive away, but because you foolishly never learned to drive, it's going to take an hour on the bus.
eternalsummerugh, nevermind bus and walking is no fun above 30c

SadieAt least our buses are air conditioned!

KareniOn the upside (speaking as a non-driving bus rider), one never needs to worry about parking the car or putting gas in the car!

Just got asked if I "get the discount." Not knowing what they were referring to, I said no. Then, I saw the "Senior Citizen Day" sign. Great. I officially look old.
alisoncooksThe only correct answer to the question "do you get the discount" is "yes, yes I do." ;)

elegantlionI apparently look old enough for the discount at Long John Silver's. First time, didn't ask, just looked up again briefly and wham assumes my age. I'm not there and my pride is worth more than .60. *shakes fist at the kids these days*

Sometimes you're the windshield. Sometimes you're the bug. Today is definitely KERSPLAT around here! Whee!
quarkStay clear of the windshield and if you can, the screen! I dislike buggy days but they make me appreciate the windshield days!

What a lovely way to wake up. DH screaming GS4's name because he can't find him in the house. Fortunately we found him in some cabinets before calling the police. Later today I think we'll be making sure he can
JuliegmomI'm sorry! That is scary!

EvantheOh, no. Current dd12 was like that when she was little. Put childproof doorknobs on your doors leading outside and to the garage.

EvantheWe couldn't find her once and she was in the garage hiding under the minivan. Terrifying!! We got safety doorknobs after that.

Went to the grocery store with kids and was irrationally jealous of the lady behind me, about my age, obviously professional, single, no kids, well put together buying salad and kitty litter. I know I know...count my blessings. Perhaps she's jealous of me too. i just imagine her returning to a peaceful apartment in the city, alone and peaceful.
MotherGooseI think the screaming toddler precluded the senior discount! :)

ScoutTNHer peaceful apartment may be a lonely place. Perhaps she noticed you and was wishing that she was a mom!?
Jan 27 2018 06:04 PM
MotherGooseAbsolutely! I told myself that the whole time :)
