I could have died! And other random observations

So, yesterday on my way home from a particularly late day at work, I was almost T-boned as I was GOING STRAIGHT down the road and getting into a turn lane. And to make matters worse, the woman who almost hit me slammed on her horn and flashed her brights at me while speeding up behind me. And THEN she commenced screaming obscenities at me as if it was my fault. So, I just watched her yell (isn't it always funny to watch someone yell at you when you can't hear a single thing BECAUSE YOU ARE IN DIFFERENT CARS WITH YOUR WINDOWS UP?) and nodded my head along in agreement as I was called every name in the book (I sometimes wish I couldn't lip read) and then gave her the thumbs up sign as I smiled broadly. I have to tell you that I am still laughing at the 'oh no she didn't' look on the woman's face.

Yeah, this is about right. Well, minus the rollers. And my glasses are totally cooler.

As I was telling Kole yesterday, all the squirrels and chipmunks in our neighboring area are suicidal. Period.

The cherries and watermelon at Publix are on sale, and really good. I highly recommend you pick some up!

And oh my gosh, don't you just want to eat up my niece???

Thank goodness my sister likes to send me photos of Ava fairly often via cell.

This child is perfect!!

I love doing that. Any time anybody flips out at me while I'm driving, I just laugh and wave and keep staring at them until they leave or try to ram me.

Ha ha, smiling and thumbs up. That is classic. Stupid people who screw up and then try to blame you. I had a similar thing happen yesterday.

So glad you are okay.

I love to smile and give a good "thumbs up" to the screaming idiots as well.

You are a far better person than me! I would have flipped her the bird instead!

Glad you handled the road rage so well! Ava is SO cute. She really looks like your sister.
