I spent most of the weekend laying around and stretching to get my spine back into shape. Then yesterday I ventured out to the dreaded Wall Mart to pick up some luggage. I had to throw away my old carry-on suitcase because it finally gave up the ghost. I bought a new one for 29.99, and it included a tote on rollers and a carry bag. Not a bad deal.
I love that I have luggage that is too worn and broken down to use anymore.
A new coffee place opened in town. Its some kind of chain, and the drinks/food are incredible. I went there after my harrowing trip to Wall Mart to simmer down and give thanks for keeping all of my limbs attached. And I had a weird experience. These days I seem to be attracting a whole new set of admirers. Teenaged boys with zits and cautious smiles on their little faces. I think they think I'm their age, because they keep flirting with me. Or maybe they like my 96 C^v^c coupe. But,I was flirted with my at least three of them.
Its a sorry thing when only the junkies and children of the world think you're hot. I think its the care taker vibes I give out.
Countdown to surgery, T minus 10 days and counting. Happy thoughts, happy thoughts...
