It's a sunny day here in the ATL and I'm loving it. Since I'm in a rather stupendous mood, I decided to write to you today. It's all apart of the whole I'm trying to do routine blogging thing. I thought I would share two happy moments with you today. The first, being my tale of free food entitled...
Sometimes More than Hugs are Free, by A. Sparkle
It just so happened that today I decided to play grown up and actually go to the farmers market this morning as well as run a few errands. I'm in love with the farmers market and the fact that I shop there makes me feel ultra stylish! I digress though.... I decided to stop at Chick-Fil-a for breakfast and ordered a sausage burrito. Now I was all excited about it, b/c I usually just get your run of the mill chicken biscuit. Had my mouth all ready to experience something new, ya know? You know how it is.... you can basically already taste it in your mouth! So I wiped away the drool and pulled up to the window to be told, 'I'm SO sorry, but we ran out of ALL of our burritos. Is there something else you would like instead??'
Ok people.... no lie... before I could even stop myself I totally rolled my eyes, my mouth dropped open into an 'O' and I gave her the double-chin look. For those that don't know what the double-chin look is... It's the look where your chin is so close to your neck that it makes you have a double chin. I was really just dumbfounded like..... who let's you order something just to tell you, they don't have anymore when you get to the window? So since I don't go to Chick-Fil-a that much I just asked for a chicken biscuit and then the mgr was like 'I'll give it to you for free since you had to wait so long and we didn't have what you wanted.' So you know I was saying in my own head, 'Oh hell YES! Freeeeeee breakfasssssst! HA!' Once I got my food I thanked her and went on about my merry way. The End!
Now the 2nd happy moment of the day will be entitled...
Princess for a Day, by A. Sparkle
Later this morning I stopped by Kroger to get a few knick knacks & paddie whacks (give a dog a bone!--I couldn't resist saying it! lol) and I was minding my own business looking for the canned veggies when this little girl sitting in a cart was staring at me with that frowny face that kids get. You know the one..... it's where they aren't exactly mean muggin' you, but you don't appreciate the frown and you're about to get offended when you remember that they are like three years old or something crazy like that... Anyway... so she was eyeballing me and I'm eyeballing back and just for shits and giggles I decide to smile at her and see what would happen. Next thing I know, she's starts off with this small hesitant smile and then it just keeps growing and growing until it's all across her face and as I walk by she exclaims to her father, 'Look Daddy! It's a Princess!!' So Daddy looks around at me like, 'yeah ok' and we both give a little chuckle. That just really made my day! Who knew...... that one day.... I would grow up to be a real live princess! I suppose I looked somewhat like a princess today. I wore my hair down which is long..... like a princess. I also had on a dress that looks like a bell..... also like a princess. Who am I to deny a little girl of happiness, by not accepting this title?? I think she may have been onto something.... The End!
You can't beat a free breakfast and becoming a princess all in one day! I"m just sayin.... Moving on.. I thought I'd show you my latest installation in the shop. Click here to check it out! Purdy ain't it? :)
Besides all that excitement, nuttin goin on but da rent over here! I'm about eat this taco soup I just made and sit down somewhere and watch some television. You got any happy moments today?
