Yesterday was my first day back to work after a week of Spring Break. I got up a little early, washed my hair, put on an outfit I was actually looking forward to wearing…wonderfully slimming cream colored cords, fitted gray longsleeve t-shirt, with a great black shortsleeve sweater over it, cute mary-janes… I even started the day off joking with my hubby about how cute I looked. Yes, I was feeling good.
On my way to work, I take H5 to school. We walked into her classroom and my perky, fresh, cute, smile was wiped from my lips by the following…
“Wow. You look like I feel.” said Mom #1. (Followed by a deep sigh and a rolling of the eyes to indicate how exhausted, and drained she was.)
What? Can’t a sister catch a break?
Thankfully, a dear friend and I created a secret system for exacting revenge on people who deeply offend while we were in college. With a fast and nearly indetectible squinting of the eyes, invisable arrows are shot at the person in question. If we were walking across campus together and a snobby professor, or ex-crush, could be seen walking toward us – the arrows would fly…then the giggles…then the warm feeling of friendship.
Jen, wish you had been there this morning. I felt a little stupid shooting my arrows all alone – although, I did still giggle a little.
