The other day as I was driving to the store, I thought that something was wrong with my car. It wasn’t making any sounds. Has the engine died? Then I realized that they had recently repaved the road.
Now they have a refrigerator that is WiFi connected. That way, when you get to the grocery store, you can connect to you fridge and see what you need by looking inside of it. Or, you could skip the high tech and just look inside before you leave for the store.
The other weekend I went to my granddaughters soccer game. Unfortunately, shortly after the game started, it began to hail. Soon my bag chair filled up with chunks of ice. At that point, I realized that I had become a human Slushy.
The TV ad announced that if you couldn’t afford to buy TV, you could rent two from them for only $29.95 per week. At first the ad sounded good until I realized that they were saying “week” and not “month”. At $29.95 a week, those two TV would cost over $1,500.00 per year. And at the end of that year, you would still not own the TVs, you would still be renting. Such a deal!!
The other day, I had my yearly eye exam. And in the course of the exam, they check my blood pressure. That stands to reason as high blood pressure can cause some eye problems. But then they asked me for my weighed and my height.
Now this struck me as being very odd. Do tall people need different glasses than short people?
The other day in the grocery store, I noticed a woman squatted down on one side of the isle while reading the cereal box on the other side of the isle. What ever works I guess.
I had never thought much about the refillable popcorn buckets that some movie theaters offer. After all, one bucket of popcorn would be more than enough for me during a movie. But the other day, I was eating lunch in a strip mall next to a movie theater. And I kept seeing people going past with their popcorn buckets only to return a few minutes later with it full of popcorn. Then it dawned on me. These people worked in the strip mall and were going to the movie theater for free popcorn. YES!
What do you do with an old convent after the nuns have all passed on? Why you turn it into a retirement home. And while the apartments may be small, the chapel is fantastic.
