Why thank you! Glad to hear it. Luigi appreciates the compliment as well, he a little heartbreaker.
Sitting at the bus stop can be quite entertaining. Today the wait was just that. As I sat eating a chicken bacon ranch wrap, I overheard Grandma 1 and Grandma 2 discussing the perplexities of our modern age. For the sake of this post, they shall be given pseudo-names. I was lol’ing on the inside.
Ethel: How do the kids these days even watch tv on those little screens?
Rosemary: I know! Even my first T.V. was 7 inches!
Ethel: Maybe on that iPad thing.
Rosemary: Yeah, maybe. Ooh, Justin has Netflix!
Ethel: Oh yeah? I heard he reads those ‘e-books’ too? Is that what they’re called?
That’s just … so cute.
Construction on the street I work on has the air filled with occasional clouds and the smell of pavement and chemicals, so when I saw smoke rising through our large windows I thought nothing of it initially. After about 5 minutes, however, the smoke looked suddenly black and I soon noticed a truck on the closest sidestreet was on fire, and not 30 seconds later, it was engulfed. Before I could complete a call to emergency services, a fire truck was pulling into view. By now the truck was barely visible inside the rising flames. Naturally, I took to my video camera, only to have my view blocked by the fire truck. Passerby’s looked in awe, one woman giddy as a school girl as it was quickly put out. Eventually, the owner of said truck came out and began to talk with the firemen. Needless to say, he seemed displeased.
