You don’t even want to know what happened to me the other day.
I was all excited to treat myself to Red Mango on a random Tuesday afternoon since this month is Cinco De Mango, meaning, all fill-ups Monday through Thursday are five dollars, regardless of weight.
Well, the above cup is barely filled (yes, I consider this barely filled) because the Red Mango I was at decided to NOT PARTICIPATE in the national promotion.
I was so upset. I didn’t want to spend a bazillion dollars for yogurt on Tuesday so I had to pay close attention and only put a little bit in my cup.
I sort of feel bad for the employee who had to interact with me but to tell you the truth, he agreed with my rant and rave.
Why did this location decide to opt out of the national promotion?
Of course I had to take it further than the minor store tantrum; corporate emails, social media blasts…you know, the usual.
Anyway, I used to live in fear of the month of May because it meant nothing but nose running, constant sneezing, eyes watering and a throat that itched yet I couldn’t scratch. I wasn’t even able to walk outside without a hood over my head and my hand over my mouth to protect me from the pollen.
As I said yesterday, the vegetarian thing cured all of that….unless of course I plant myself directly under a blooming tree as was forced to do last night for a few hours at my son’s Little League game.
If you have allergies, you know that you must wash your hair before going to bed if you don’t want the hidden pollen from your head landing on your pillow and in your face all night long.
However, the genius that I am once figured out years ago that if I don’t have the chance to wash my hair every single night during high pollen season, I can simply sleep with a shower cap on my head to keep my hair off of my pillow and away from my nose and the rest of my face.
I have a collection of Hello Kitty shower caps in case you were curious.
Laugh if you want but at least I am never up sneezing, itching and wanting to die from an inability to breathe. Works like a charm.
This is one of those situations where you can sit and wonder what people look like in the comforts of their own home.
I am currently fascinated by how easy it has been to drink less coffee. Like, I don’t miss the extra cups? Even though it is free refills Panera, I don’t want to refill? I prefer to fill my water cup?
Explain. I can’t.
I also can’t explain my father’s fascination with seating charts years after my wedding. He is a blog reader and totally drank the AllSeated Kool-Aid from Tuesday’s post.
Between me and you, I have a strong feeling he has set up a fake account with AllSeated just to play around with tables and seating arrangements for an imaginary event.
Speaking of fake, I will admit that I often use aliases. I don’t know why but I always enjoyed changing my name when the situation calls for going undercover. And, depending upon the situation, I use different names.
Please don’t ask me which situations I am referring to; there are so many and too many of them should never be discussed in writing.
I know I mentioned last year that I always hated my name and wished to be a Rebecca. Maybe if I ever have a daughter I can name her Rebecca but then I might get all jealous so that might not be the best of ideas.
Not to mention, as much as I always wanted a girl, a daughter would probably want to color in my coloring books, touch my Lisa Frank sticker collection and use my Hello Kitty shower cap.
I am not all that down with sharing. I am really happy to have a son.
Time for me to go figure out breakfast for this morning and get the day going.
