Hubby and I got out of my car heading into the grocery store for just a few things when I heard it in the distance; Roses are red, violets are blue, I love cookies and so do you! I looked around and saw them; beautiful little munchkins wearing green and standing by a table full of boxes and I heard it again Roses are red, violets are blue, I love cookies and so do you! A single munchkin dancing around singing as moms and other munchkins continue adding boxes to the display. I veered left effectively turning hubby in the direction of the left door. This is kind of a no-no to me as I try to follow ‘traffic laws’ (you know stay on the right unless passing) even in the grocery store or entering the doors. Sometimes however, lawbreaking is necessary. NO walking by the cookie table!
So, in we go, bypassing the poetic, singing munchkin, heading to get just what we came for, starting with the fruit and veggies on the right. 15 minutes later, we are headed to the door and I must decide if I am going to head towards the munchkins and fork over $5.00 for some heaven on earth called Samoas or take evasive action. Since they are at the left door as we exit, the evasive maneuvers are minimal but my taste buds hear her calling Roses are red, violets are blue, I love cookies and so do you!
I take a quick look left with a tiny pause in my step and I see a line of people caught in the trap I have successfully avoided…this time.
Today I celebrate three things:
- The spirit of a child creating fabulous marketing skills and will perhaps one day write commercial jingles
- The willpower that was intact today for a few minutes
- Hubby didn’t hear or see a thing! He was focused on a weird light he noticed shining on my dashboard while driving to the store.
There is always something to celebrate people. Now if I just had some cookies to go with my milk!
