The sun is shining in Seattle which means we’re all rejoicing in our own sun-worshiping ways.
Some take to wearing very little clothing even though it’s only 73 degrees. A bit extreme if you ask me. Though I’ve come to realize that I do not own any sandals or flip flops except for the ones I got after getting a pedicure which really do not count. Some others (like myself) take a few minutes extra at lunch to soak up the rays. And then there are the people who get carried away tossing back a few brews in the afternoon sun. Like the two yesterday who stood outside my apartment building talking very loudly and very closely into each other’s faces. The female of the pair spoke to me as I carried a stack of window screens up the stairs to the front door:
“SCREENS! That’s smart. Those are new and CLEAN.”
She would emphasize certain words and her voice would rise a couple octaves. I ignored her. She spoke to her cohort:
“She’s SMART. Screens are DIRTY. Those NEW screens are hypoallergenic.”
I was surprised she could say hypoallergenic. Granted, she did slur it a bit.
Later they stood in the middle of the street and she repeatedly got in his face saying, “I need a CIGARETTE!” After a few rounds of that, they shuffled off randomly saying inexplicable things to strangers. The show was over and I was forced to resume cleaning my apartment.
All my tidying was in anticipation of my Jenny Two Times coming for a weekend visit. Hooray! We’ve got some loose plans. Probably some wine drinking, some sun enjoying, some thrifting, some live music listening and some brunching. Ok, fine. I have an itinerary. I HAVE A SICKNESS.
I told Mr. Darcy that I wasn’t going to schedule any big plans for June and he quipped something like, “Planned spontaneity. That’s awesome.”
Happy weekending everybody!
P.S. My mole results came back. All clear! Nothing to worry about.
