Daily prompt/customer service

I was very pregnant with my first child and my husband made a large paycheck so he said he was going to take me and buy me all new maternity clothes. I was so excited!  We lived payday to payday and this was a real treat.
So, when my husband got off work he had me meet him at our local mall in the most expensive store there. I never dreamed I could shop there. Well, my husband and I are use to people judging us by my husband’s appearance.  He was covered in tattoos.  I do mean a lot of tattoos. So, I was shopping and we noticed we were being followed and nobody asked if they could help us as they did other customers.  I started to cry. This upset my husband and he asked to speak with the management.  Low and behold he was one of the personnel that was following US like we were thieves!  Calmly my husband tells the manager that we have been here for a long time and nobody asked us if we needed help. He explains that he felt we were being judged by his appearance and pulled out a wad of money and simply states I hope you work on commission because you just lost out and I will be reporting this incident to your corporate office. He grabbed my hand and we left. Leaving a dumbfounded manager in our wake.
The next place we went I was treated like a queen. Even know my husband and I are apart now I will never forget his handling of that situation.


Daily prompt/Sorry, I am busy!

When I read this idea the first thing that came to mind is when my kids were really young and tried to tell me something or show me something they could do.
There were countless times that one or all wanted my attention and even if I patiently waited for them to show or tell me my mind was on other things. Dishes, laundry, dinner, or life’s many drama’s. I wished I completely focused on what they were doing. Dozens of skits or plays were acted out just for me. If only I could remember them now.
I am a grandma now and I intend on paying close attention to everything my grandchildren do or ask of me and for me. Dishes, laundry, and anything else can wait. I plan on living in the here and now with them.


Daily prompt/super sensitive

If I could decrease a sense it would be taste for sure. I’m over weight and suffer from mental and physical problems because of it. Maybe, if food didn’t taste so good I would eat less and loose some weight.
I would increase my sight! My vision is so poor I would love to read more, drive better, and really see the world in a different light.


Daily prompt/the cat says meow

My name is Bella the mini yorkie that lives in the house on the corner. The one with the crazy lady that talks to herself and sings aloud all the time. She runs around in that brightly colored moomoo!
Well, let me tell you she loves and cares for me so good. Even when she has very little to eat she makes sure I have a meal and a treat. She is a giver that one! When she scratches my behind, just above my tale I shake my leg for her and she delights me with a smile and that full belly laugh of hers.
She talks to herself as I said. And, she talks to me. Often she says how much she misses having her family all together again. Her son’s are all grown up with lives of their own. Her grandbaby makes her as happy as I do if not more. If only she could see her more. She talks about maybe getting us a man around the house.  I bark at her when she talks non sense! My master is lonely but each day is better for her I can tell.
Often she looks in the mirror and says she looks like a dog!? This I don’t understand I am a dog. I’m beautiful and I know it. I wished I could tell her how pretty she is. I bark when she talks bad about herself. Maybe, just maybe, someday she will see how perfect she is like I ser her. Until then I will be here with her through the ups and downs. Because, to me she is perfect.


Daily prompt/2100


I have often wondered about this myself. How would my kin folk of the future talk? Over the years some amazing words came out as slang from our youth of that era. Several examples are: groovy, tubular, awesome, dope, not to mention fine and hot for example taking on a whole new meaning!
I will be 52 and my first grandbaby will be 8. I am going to try and picture her and the slang she may use. Hey, I am making it up as I go! Isn’t that’s how it’s done anyway?
Nana, I am in the 2nd grade now and all the other middle-lower schooler’s get to ride their telechoppers to school! I am crabnapped! Shelisamay told Ryanair that I had moochos too! Life is so pandonterously females it sucks!
Well, why don’t u take the camhoover to school and you will be smazzled by all the grades? And, you don’t have moochos you were given the multpkex shot in your eye for that! So, tell shelisamay to ganook or your nana is going to badingle her nose!
Oh, greenback nana you cask like the best ever!

Who knows what slang will be used but there is my comic relief!


Daily prompt/non-sequitur


I liked to run my toes through a fresh batch of cow dung. Running through the cow pasture is fun even when I’m 50! Bart says I need to be acting more like them there ladies from the church. Bart just likes their biscuits not mine. So what mine done broke 3 of his teeth! I dunk um in buttermilk them soften right up. Me n Bart you see got married cause my pa had a shotgun and old Bart was scared. He done got me pregnant!  So, we are old now. He wittles!  That be all he does. Oh, and yells!
So, I usually just let him yell. Til he tried to hit me with that forklift. Then boy did I yell.

And old Bart learned his lesson that day!


Daily prompt/ celebrate good times


I may not be quiet on topic of following the description of” show us good times, celebrating good news.” Because, when I read the topic my mind went to a song and the story of three children dancing to the song Celebration by Kool and the Gang.

There were three of us. Me, Rhonda, and Trav. We were being raised by single mothers trying very hard to keep food in our bellies and our Christmas trees full of presents.
We had a lot of time together our mothers are best friends. When we were kids we would get on our bikes and go to the store and come out with a bag of candy a piece all for 25 cents! Our bikes took us everywhere.  Even places we dreamed up. We all named our bikes. These bikes were Christmas gifts from Santa! Trav and I knew our mom’s were Santa. Poor Rhonda,the baby of us three, believed forever in Santa. Until some idiot blew it. But, that’s a story for another day. We also created secret hideouts all the time. One was called bird haven, if I recall correctly.  We were as close as we could be. Waking up each day going on new adventures and worrying only about how we were going to get our next quarter for the trip to the corner market.  The three marketeers we were indeed!
So, when that wonderful song came out we would dance with unabandedness to it while a disco light shined.  Yes, we three were the king and queens of our world! I have no doubt to this day if I needed them or they needed me we each would try our hardest to be there.
So, when I saw the daily prompt this song and many years of fun memories flooded back to me. I have had much to celebrate in my life like my three beautiful sons and now a grandbaby. But, today for this moment I went with a time when life was simpler for me and I had two bffs, a brother and sister, cousins, whatever we called one another when asked. Thanks for the travel back in time. It’s funny where these daily prompts can take you.
