Pink for the day


I do not hurry well. It's not something I'm proud of, but it is what it is. My new/used car needed a new tire - I was told they weren't supposed to (by WalMart regulations) put on the size that would match the other tire, but they would, since that was the size I'd bought with the vehicle. I was told that perhaps they couldn't (by WalMart regulations) repair the tire that had picked up a nail (it has to not be in certain place on the tire), but as it turned out, yes, they could. If any other store in this town had actually had the tire I needed, I wouldn't've been at WalMart in the first place. But that is what that is. I had to drop it off to have the oil changed (not at WalMart). I've been trying to get all the photographs out that have to be out, and perhaps I'm done. Because of all this, because of the phone calls I answer here at a business only to have someone try to sell me satellite service, better insurance, better postage machines, even better insurance, a new credit card machine, insurance again, and even better postage machines, I will be meeting Christy tomorrow without a new haircut. And that is what that is & that's why God invented Pepto-Bismol. Breathe in . . . 1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . (I am peace . . . ), breathe out . . . 1 . . . 2 . . . 3 . . . (I am calm . . . ) Ommmmm . . . . . .

  1. Hmmm, I've never tried the pink stuff. What does it taste like?

  2. Jaime _ I don't know how to describe the taste. It tastes like itself. They make a cherry flavored version, but I cannot imagine drinking something that tastes like candy when I'm feeling bad.

    And thank you - everything DID finally calm down. Including my belly!
