At TNP sick days can be rolled over into vacation days, and vacation days also roll over into the next year. Suffice it to say, this is the first full 5-day week I’ve had in a while, and I feel it. The world is in shambles (after the last few weeks of news, that asteroid can hit us any minute now), my friends are dumping buckets of ice on their heads, and I received my first birthday card yesterday. It’s from the local Hallmark store. Sigh. So it’s fitting that this week’s Friday 5 theme is Old and Grumpy.
1. What’s something you have a grumpy old person’s attitude about?
Your nine-month-old goes to daycare, not “school.” Graduating daycare/preschool isn’t an accomplishment – it means your child is literally too old to stay. Your dog might enjoy staying home more than being taken to the farmer’s market/town festival day. Pull your pants up. If you’re on a bicycle, stop at the stop signs. I don’t care about your momentum, and I’d rather not have to wash your guts off of my car. Marijuana smells awful and is still mostly illegal, by the way. Formula-fed babies are just fine. If you’re over 2, pants with words on the behind are tacky. (Disclaimer: I still own a pair.) The best time to leave the Magic Kingdom is right before the fireworks start. Dinner at 4pm is fantastic!
Oh, just one?
2. What is evidence of your not being a completely grumpy old person?
3. What’s something in your wardrobe that might qualify as old people’s attire?
4. When during the week do you tend to be your grumpiest?
Tuesday mornings. Mondays aren’t bad because of the adrenaline rush of getting back into the routine. Tuesdays suck.
5. Who in your family is most often in a bad mood, and who’s most often in a good mood?
Ollie is most often in a good mood and WM is most often in a bad mood. Usually I demur on answering those questions, but WM actually volunteered that answer.
Tomorrow is BeadFest! Sunday is NOTHING! Tonight? WINE.
