Mom’s Shopping Story

I went to the Shoppette on Redstone Arsenal.  The Shoppette is a small store with only a hand full of cash registers to check out.

I had two items in my shopping cart.  I walked up to the cash register and the cashier asked me if I had already paid for my items.  I said, no.

Then all sorts of things started going through my mind.  What did she think I did, go to one of the other cash registers and pay then walk over to her cash register after paying for my items.

I also wondered what she would have said if I said, yes I already paid.  Would she have just let me walk out of the store even though I had not paid of my items.

They say there is always a first time for everything and I must admit this is the first time I have ever been asked if I had already paid for my items while waiting at the cash register to pay.

I just keep thinking about her and laughing.

Maybe, it’s just me….

I replace my socks every six to nine months, because they start to feel stiff and crusty.  My family finds this weird.  They say they’ve never heard of such a thing.

I like my socks to be soft and fuzzy.  However, that new sock feeling doesn’t last forever.  When the socks start getting stiff, it really annoys me.  I find it irritating.

Maybe, it’s just me.  Maybe, I am weird.

The Bahamas – Nassau

Nassau was my favorite place to visit while in The Bahamas.  I wish I could have spent more time at this port.  Oh well, I guess I will just have to go back for another visit.

Nassau is full of cute little shops.  I felt like we went into a hundred different stores, but I enjoyed each one of them.

Malia and I went to the Nassau Library and Museum.  The building was originally used as a jail, so the layout was rather unique.  The one thing that really caught my attention was their card catalog system.  I was completely enthralled and just stood there running my fingers along the wooden cabinet and the cards.  I wish I had photos, but pictures were not allowed inside the building.

We also encountered statues and posters dedicated to the woman of The Bahamas.  They were praised for their hard work and sacrifice during the nation’s difficult times.  They were admired for their willingness to give of themselves in an effort to create a better life for all citizens.

I cannot talk about Nassau without mentioning the beaches and the beautiful ocean.  The water was a clear blue and I could watch the fish as they swam near the docks.  The fish I saw had yellow and black strips, so I called them bumblebee fish.

 

 

Shopping for Locally Grown Food and Hand Made Products

Mom and I went to the Farmer’s Market and to Bailey’s Artisan Mall this morning.

Food items from local farms taste so much better than what we can buy at the grocery store.  The fresh fruits and vegetables are full of flavor and their scents fill the air.

I also enjoyed the handmade items at Bailey’s, because they are all unique.  I prefer having items that are different and have character.

I bought the dragon fly for mom.  It’s an early Mother’s Day present and I think she will enjoy it.

Introvert Pride Shirt

I am an extreme introvert.  I thought it would be cool to get a shirt that perfectly proclaimed my introverted personality, so I went to Amazon and found several really good designs.

  1.  This first shirt is totally me.

2.  This shirt is my favorite.

3.  A social club that doesn’t require actual interaction with people, sounds like a cool idea.

4.  I can deal with a club that meets occasionally, in small groups, for limited periods of time.

5.  That’s why I prefer living in rural areas, the cities are so peopley.

Are you an introvert and can you relate to any of these shirts?  Let me know which one is your favorite.
