Marvin and I have been do some funny things today and laughing so hard. They may just be funny to us but I thought I would share.
Earlier today we went to the grocery store to pick up a few items. We had just got done at the mall with our grand daughters and their parents at Build a Bear and had a quick bite for lunch in the mall. My morning hot flashes combined with the warm stores in mall had my head throbbing. I had already started the day with a sinus headache (like usual) Actually it has been a very mild winter here and has been in the 50s and low 60's so the trees and plants all think it is spring. So my allergies are in full bloom. So anyway we get in the checkout line and of course we always pick the one that there is a problem. So the first problem for the person a head of us was the cashier had forgot to get his cash drawer so he had to call for assistance. My patience was really being tested at this point because this store was very hot too. So it was our turn to checkout and I get ready to pay with my debit card and the debit terminal says "closed" the cashier calls for assistance and it still doesn't work. He is fiddling around with it and it still is not working. Okay at this point I am about to yell " CAN SOMEONE TURN THE HEAT OFF IN HERE" but of course I don't I stand there and patiently say "Do you want me to just write a check?" He says yes can you do that? Then he asks for my ID. What I thought he was asking me was for my PIN number for my debit card and so I asked him "What is an ID" this was a serious question until I realized what he wanted was my ID (drivers license) duh. I stated to laugh then and the lady in back of me was even laughing. Marvin and I are still chuckling about it.
The next thing we get home and do a few things and decide to take the dog for a walk. Marvin heads out the door and says "I have my keys but not my wallet. I say "great neither one of us have ID (there is that word again) on us if something happens. Now I am a person that is always prepared I carry pepper spray with us because some people do not obey the leash law. I had a sack and paper towels in case I needed to scoop poop. (which I didn't luckily need) Ok so back to the story Marvin slips on the front step with the dog in tow. He caught his balance luckily or he would have been flying headfirst right into my SUV. So I was laughing (a little). We got out on the sidewalk and I literally trip and lose my balance. We are actually right in front of out house and our neighbor was actually backing out so I can only imagine what he thought. I got my balance without falling but I almost ran back in the house to get our ID. So we actually laughed during our whole walk. We are our own entertainment.
