... that I wanted popcorn the other day and I knew we had some of those mini, personal size bags. I also kind of wanted chocolate. So, since I didn't have any M&Ms (for future reference, M&Ms and popcorn mixed together is SO GOOD), I thought I'd use chocolate chips. Same thing, right? WRONG. I hated it. And I never hate anything with chocolate!
... that the other day I was driving and came up at a stop light. I stopped at a normal distance to the crosswalk and in the middle of the lane, like anyone would do. A lady pulled up next to me, tried to pass me to turn right, but couldn't so she stopped. Then she honked. Excuse me, what? Lady, there's no room for me to move to let you turn. I just stayed there. The light seemed to take an annoyingly long amount of time to change. It finally changed and I started going and then I hear "honk! honk! honk!" What the heck?? Now she's honking because I DID move out of her way so she could turn? Seriously people, show some patience!
... that I wish my work chair was a heated seat like the heated seats in my car.
... that I went to Starbucks on Tuesday and they gave me a red cup and it secretly made me happier than I think it should have.
... that speaking of Starbucks, when I was driving in the parking lot, looking for a parking spot, I was behind a car that had to slam on their breaks to avoid hitting a person... all because the person FULL ON walked through the parking lot without looking. You'd think with all the poor drivers out there these days, people would be more self aware and watch out for themselves... especially in parking lots! (I know I do!) It truly boggles my mind how many people walk through parking lots assuming people will stop for them.
... that I get seriously annoyed that ONE PIECE of hair constantly falls out of my bun after I put my hair up in the morning. EVERY DAY.
... that I LOVED seeing all the decorated cars during the holidays... but I'd never decorate my car myself.
... that I called the LA Times to cancel my Sunday newspaper subscription and the guy wouldn't let me cancel. He said he was sorry I wanted to cancel, why was I cancelling, where did I get my news from now, did I know they had an app that you get "free" access to with a paid subscription, blah blah blah. I finally just said "no thank you" and then he said "well I can tell by the tone of your voice that you're in a hurry". Uhh. No. I'd just like to cancel and I don't want the run around as to why I shouldn't cancel and what other benefits I could get. He finally asks if there is anything they could do to keep me from cancelling and I said to give it to me for free. He said my subscription will be cancelled in two days. BAM!
... that I have a "new years resolution" type post that I've been meaning to post. Good thing "not procrastinating" is not one of my resolutions. Hopefully next week!
And I saved the best for last...
... that Mason has been doing this new thing lately where he pokes a woman in the boob and says "big stomach". His ABA therapist told me he did this at school the other day to his teacher and I was mortified... and I wasn't even there! I am both seriously embarrassed and secretly think it's funny at the same time. But mostly embarrassed and have been trying to explain why we DON'T do this. I literally have no idea where he learned it!
