Who Peed in my Cheerios?


It doesn't happen often but when it does, watch out! Some people say redheads have tempers. I've never really felt like this was true of me but for some reason I'm feeling a streak of impatience and grumpiness.

We were at Wal mart and there were people with their TWO carts pulled to the side of a busy aisle blocking traffic. As they were talking oblivious to the situation, I politely said, "Excuse me, there is a traffic jam." Did they move or care? NO. That's when I felt the frustration.

HeRoos just asked, "Are you really going to publish this?"

Another time I felt this way was when I was driving in a residential neighborhood and someone rode my bumper the entire way. Ooh, it ticked me off. She eventually revved her engine and went speeding around me. I think she may have been high or had some serious issues. Guess what I did. Yep, I got the license plate number and reported it. Hello?! There are kids walking!

I think it's a good sign that I can recognize this glitch in the system because that means I'm not calloused to grumpiness, right?

Well, don't you worry friends and dear husband because tomorrow I will wake up on the right side of the bed and guard my bowl of cheerios as I think of ways to spread holiday cheer.

My loving husband who knows just how to handle me said, "You should probably go to bed early." I can't help but laugh-The things I hated when I was younger are now cherished. You bet I'll go to bed early, take a bath, or even take a nap. Sign me up, quick!

I tend to become a different person at Wal-mart, not a nice one! So I understand what your saying about the traffic jam situation there. I would love a nap or some sleep- that sounds really nice! Our sweet baby & building the house doesn't alway me much of that anymore:( Its amazing how much sleep really does help a person stay sane:)

Walmart tends to bring out the worst in all of us, so don't worry! As a fellow red-head I MAY understand your perspective, but I choose to take a different spin on it. Since I have become a mother I have become infected with "Momma bear syndrome" it basically plays out like this: the world is full of crazy, rude, annoying and clueless people. We just notice it now because we feel the need to protect our cubs!! Just a theory.(:
