How about a laugh at my expense? C'mon ~ I know you want to!
I've turned into a complete brain-addled dork lately which has led to a few misunderstandings...some with a good outcome & some, well ...I'll let you be the judge.
First ~ the good. I almost never read my horoscope but as it's on the flip side of the NY Times Sunday crossword page in our paper, I do occasionally take a peek. This past Sunday printed neatly by VIRGO was this:
"Romance flowers today and tomorrow."
Which prompted an excited reaction from me to my husband after reading it for the third time. 'This says I'm going to get flowers two (TWO!) days in a row', she said with glee. Only, when I spoke the words aloud I realized that, doh, that's not even close to what it said. Romance itself was predicted to flower...no actual flowers involved. Which he thought was pretty funny.
But guess what? My horoscope came true ~ haha! Romance flowered AND I got flowers :)
|eek ~ better go swipe away that spider web!|
My husband surprised me with this lovely hanging basket for our front porch the next day ~ we're on a tight budget and alas, had crossed our annual hanging baskets off our list this year but he received a birthday gift card to a local hardware store on Sunday & decided to spend it on me ~ yup, romance abounds. My horoscope came true ~ any-which-way you read it! (Thanks JR & Kelli for your part in this ~ I thought you might find this amusing!)
Now onto the other faux pas of the week. It was horrifying but ridiculously funny. Let me just start by saying this ~ if you drive by a sign that says:
Amber's Red Hot Coffee
it's probably NOT referring to coffee as the hot item. Learned this myself the hard way. The coffee was not that hot but Amber sure was ~ good lord ~ pretty sure my face turned the exact same color red as the coffee hut when I pulled up to the window & realized that Amber (or one of her cohorts) was about to make my coffee dressed in her undies. REALLY? I don't make my own coffee dressed in lingerie, my friends, and I found it beyond embarrassing to have some young missy wearing hers while brewing my morning java. Needless to say, I will NOT be visiting there again...I don't care how long the line at Starbucks is. My husband got a good laugh ~ I called him immediately to tell him I was drinking a dirty, dirty coffee and he was in hysterics listening to me.
If this happens to you, don't say I didn't warn you!
For the few of you who have messaged me that you've missed my more frequent blogging...
are you wishing I'd have stayed away a little longer??!
Since I hate to leave you with a mental picture of Amber in her negligee, here are a few flowers for YOU from our blossoming yard:
|summertime sweet yellow osteospermum|
|'romance flowers' ~ hehe|
Hope you're having a good week ~ thanks for stopping by!
