I woke up this morning in a pissed off funk. Don't know why. Maybe because I stayed up later than usual last night. Maybe because today is cleaning day because mother-in-law is coming over tomorrow. Maybe because Jerry was running around like crazy and being loud and I'm not so much into crazy/loud when I first wake up. Maybe because I'm finally sick of listening to "Non-Stop Christmas Favorites."
Gerald said what he always says when I'm being pissy: "Just decide to be happy and be happy." Which always pisses me off even more, and I start slamming cupboards a little louder than normal, and I wipe the counters because I'm obsessive like that, and I keep my head down and stomp around, and then I realize that he's right.
So I recalled why I stayed up so late - the pink slippers.
And so I put Counting Crows on the compact disc player, then I sat down in my knitting chair with a cup of hot tea and performed a very satisfying three-needle bind off on my new slippers.
Goodbye Orange Crush, hello Raspberry Sherbert!
