Remember - Be Nice
And especially at this time of year (you know, with Santa watching and all) we should all be on our best behavior :)
Do you remember in a post earlier this week I mentioned getting low on a pretty piece of plaid wool? Well, last night I got a message from a friend that she found a piece of it in her stash and was willing to part with it. Another example of the generosity of hooker friends.
So on my lunch hour I stopped in to pick it up (before she changed her mind LOL). As I was leaving I mentioned I was on my way to a local store to raise heck about an trouble-filled purchase. I was all wound up and loaded-for-bear. And then she hits me with this . . . . . "Now Kim, Be Nice" Dang it. Don't you hate it when someone is right ? (And I had a really good rant all worked out for the store manager too) And even worse, she had to remind me to be nice after just giving me a kind, nice gesture. Sheesh, sometimes I need a bonk on the head.
As I left and was driving to the store I realized I was smiling. I looked down at that pretty piece of wool on the seat next to me and giggled all the way to the store. And as I arrived in the parking lot I was repeating "Now Kim, Be Nice" So I WAS and got my issues all straightened out. Sometimes we all need a little reminder to be nice.
Tomorrow I am going to see the Nutcracker Ballet. That should help with the Christmas Spirit.
