Walmart Plastic

So there I was...
Cleaning my room so that I can fit in all my junk from living all over for the past ten years and I found a Walmart gift card! It was smeared, smudged, and had a snowman on the front...called the number on the back and YES!!!! it still has $30 on it. Saved my life by total accident.

Mexi Casa

So there we were...
The other day I went back home to visit and to attend the No Doubt concert. The night before we visited Mexi Casa. As this is my favorite dining destination, naturally, I was excited to go. We are seated in a booth, close to the entrance, next to a trio of older women. Now these older ladies were not afraid of anyone else hearing their conversation (or perhaps they had to talk loud in order to hear each other) so I listened in. I don't think this was a bad thing. Sure, what they were discussing was one of my business, but it is not like they were being secretive. Besides, if you don't want people to hear don't talk so loud. Anyway, one of the women began to discuss her trip car shopping. She decided she wanted to look at the Smart Car. Her sons, being the protective angels she believed they were, tried to steer her away from this choice. I am sure the thought of their mother smeared all over the freeway was the reason for their hesitance. After all, there isn't much between you and the road in those things. She was a little upset with them as she felt they were perfectly safe. Her friend across from her agreed. However, the one in between the both hadn't said much and I had kinda forgotten she was there...or perhaps assumed she was a mute. She must have heard my thoughts and to prove me wrong immediatly joined the conversation asking a few questions as she was unsure what a smart car was. The other ladies explained to her what it was. Suddenly her voice brightens up with the sounds of recognition and she says, "oh, I know what they are...they look like a pregnant roller skate!"
I laughed outloud. Totally could have been in a movie.

My life as a movie...

Do you ever have those moments that make you stop and think, "Man, that should be in a movie...". Well, that happens to me more than I think it should. Things happen to me every day that make me wish I could write them down and remember them for we all know that time will come when someone will see you walking down the street and say to you, "Gee, I want you to be in my next movie." You see, I am just preparing now. And so these weird, quirky events have brought me to record them in my very own blog.
