Yesterday was my sister's birthday.
Mom had to hold the cake so I could get a photo. I wanted to take a picture of my sister with the cake, but she said if I did she would have to kill me. Ha, I've heard that threat before, and I'm really not too worried, which brings me to the second part of this post.
Last night's lead story on our local news was about the people who are stocking up on survival gear for the end of the world today. Seriously??? Are we the only state in the union with a bunch of fools?
I mean first of all I am pretty sure the world is not going to end today. It wouldn't dare. My birthday is next week. Secondly, if the world does end, you won't be needing any survival gear.
I like the man who went in to the store to buy some gas masks. "These aren't for me, he said. They're Christmas presents."
Huh? The end of the world is on the 21st and the last time I checked Christmas is on the 25th. Do you really think your friends and family are going to be able to hold their breath that long?
Something tells me his wife wouldn't be too happy getting a gas mask for Christmas and if he is a big enough fool to give her one, he'll probably wish the end of the world had been on the 21st.
Note to man in store: Just in case you are handing out extras, make mine pink please.
I'm thinking I may wear one of these next time I am pumping gas at the Kroger store. It would make quite the fashion statement.
Have a great day (for as long as it lasts)
