This morning I was hurrying back with my first-born from Sunday Morning Event One, to Sunday Morning Event Two, when we had to stop for gas.

After I pulled up I saw the pump had a sign on it, "PLEASE PAY CASHIER" so I walked up and got there simultaneously with this old man, and he paused and I paused, and he was about to indicate for me to pay first, but I saw he had on a hat that listed him as a Korean War vet (yeah, old) and so I said no, please go first. And he stepped ahead of me.

Wellll, these things always seem to happen when you're in a rush like we were, but the cashier kept trying the man's credit card.....it would not work.

So the man tried another card.....would not work.

The man in the Korean War hat proceeded to tell the cashier he had plenty of money so he was mystified as to why his cards weren't working, and the cashier said he didn't doubt it, they'd been having trouble all day and the self-pay scans on the pumps were all down.

This was every bit of five minutes spent standing there waiting. So the man said he had cash, and the cashier said okay then since it's pre-pay with cash you get five cents off a gallon, and the man said, okay, oh, well, I don't need to use all my fuel points then, can you cancel the order and we'll just use the cash discount?

The cashier said okay, blahblahblah, another minute trickled by, my kid was in the car, no biggie she's eight and it was just ten feet away but still I was realllly wishing I hadn't let him go ahead of me, we could've been halfway to Sunday Morning Event Number Two.

So finally the man took money out of his wallet and paid and got two fives back, and turned around to walk back and as he passed me he dropped one of the fives and didn't notice, so I picked it up and walked over and said sir, you dropped this, and he looked surprised and said that's honest of you, why don't you hang onto that since I know I made you wait a long time?

I said oh, no, it's all right, but he insisted.

He didn't have to do that, and it was generous, don't you think?

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee  
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,  
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,  
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.... 
   
Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell...

One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,   
And death shall be no more; death thou shalt die.

I was thhhhhiiiiisssss close to grabbing the kids and going for a trip this weekend during the annual Lake Erie walleye fishing trip my husband and his father undertake, just to skirt-block my mother-in-law from coming over and staying with us then like she always does, but my children are all excited about her being here, soooo....it's my annual four days of Hell when she stays with us. Otherwise known as I-Am-Never-So-Glad-To-See-My-Husband-As-I-Am-When-Gets-Back!


Scheduled Hell Days events include:


Telling me how I should be doing EVERYthing here instead of the way I am!


Feeding my kids lots 'n lots of sugar!


Secretly putting the dogs out every chance she gets because animals don't belong in the house!


Trying to convert us all to Methodism!


Constant monologues about blood pressure, blood sugar, menopause symptoms, fallen arches, and which friend of hers from church has which embarrassing old lady malady!


Cleaning my house around me to show me she can do it better!


Telling me yet again she always hoped her dear son would marry a virgin!


Passive-aggressively commenting on me from every angle!


Disserting on why it's so unhealthy for me not to eat meat!


Trying to sneak meat into my food!


And that annual tradition: explaining in painstaking detail why she never "really" held my Catholic background against me, which is nothing less than an Orwellian re-composing of history itself!


I think I might host a Norwegian pagan death metal party here right outside her bedroom. Sound like a plan? I also am trying to figure out how to coordinate random power outages right in the middle of her afternoon "stories."

Deus meus, cum sis omnipotents infinitus misiercors et fidelitius spero te mihi daturum ob meritus Jesu vitam aeternaum et gratius necessaris ad eam consequendam quam tu promisisti is qui bona opera facient quemamodem te adiuvante facere constituo!!!!!!!!!

Overheard two old ladies arguing about which is better: stockings with garters or pantyhose.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
