OK today is
a shitty! no a sucky! not a great day! Have you ever had one of those days where nothing you do seems to go right! I just wanted to go to bed by midday.
So I went upstairs and started to prepare lunch before I take a nap. My 10 yr old son noticed I was pissed so he was helping by make my favorite sandwich – Peanut Butter & Jelly. I don’t know what it is about a PB&J; sandwich, but it usually puts a smile on my face…
Well, today it did just that… but in quite a different way!
My cell phone rings & I’m fumbling to answer it before my client is sent to VM – but Damm!!! – they make these cell phones so tiny – anyone could easily drop one.
And that is just what happened. I am holding the phone with my cheek against my shoulder – and of course I had to be nosey. I leaned forward to see him make my sandwich and my tiny, shiny, favorite Blackberry Pearl (can you hear my cries) just slides, as if greased with butter, right out of my shoulder.
shit! doggy doo (my son’s listening – I can’t contribute to the corruption of a minor!). My first thought is “don’t fall on the PB! – no not face down at least!!!” As I am thinking those words, I see my black Pearl slide (matrix-like) down my favorite red, polyester Hawaiian shit; roll off my outstreched arm (hey in the movies they catch it in mid air, why not me!); and does a flip – you know like the end of a slide dropping into the pool.
As I am thinking “- no not face down at least!!!” that is exactly what the phone decides to do – a belly flop into the PB.
My son turns and faces me with a look of suprise & fun and says “Hey you got phone in my peanut butter!” I immediately start laughing and that commercial runs thru my head. I reply. “Hey you got peanut butter on my phone!”
I try to snatch it off the PB (Hey, the 5 second rule may apply – maybe it won’t stick), but as I turn it over I see the splatter of PB on the buttons. We both start laughing and the burden and the blues of this day just washed away.
Needless to say, throughout the day, everytime I answer the phone I get the perfume of PB and it makes me smile.
Have a great day and don’t let life get you down. Live and enjoy each day…
