Kinda boring

Just a little update because I said I would. I had a bridge put in today. No more hole in my mouth. I never really thought about it. I never saw it because it was on the side. One day I saw a picture of me taken from the side when I was smiling big. And I saw the hole and knew it had to go. I used to have a bridge but it was removed years ago because of a cavity in the tooth next door. The bridge feels weird and I have a 'toothache', but I'll be fine. Yeah for no more hole.

Emily had an orthodontist appointment. She really wants her braces off. No fun the first time. Less fun the second time around.

That was pretty much my day. Uneventful. Really fine.

Here's something eventful from Monday. I was leaving the grocery store. A SUV was parked at the curb. I watched the woman driver roll her window down, throw some trash to the curb, and raise the window. I was shocked. I started walking towards her, waving my hand to get her attention. She didn't notice me till I was about 6 feet away, and she rolled down her window. I said, I can't believe you just rolled down your window and threw your trash out onto the street. She said, what did you just say? I repeated myself. She said, you just mind your own business, and rolled up her window. I walked away really quick. It might have been a stupid thing for me to do, but I couldn't help myself. I'm not sorry I did it, but glad she didn't have a gun or chase me down.

Here's another random thing. I paid my Water and Wastewater bill today. I looked at my checkbook to see what it was last February. It was exactly 42 cents less. How could there be such an tiny difference? Other quarters there's been a $12 difference, or $8, but 42 cents? That's random.

I just watched 4 episodes of Private Practice. I'm bored.

Good for you for confronting the litter bug! I can't stand when people litter, especially smokers who throw their still-burning cigarettes in the streets and on the sidewalks.

OMG! I would have been HOPPING mad! Next time pretend you're writing down her license plate number. I did that once when a car did something stupid and dangerous (passing in a school zone). Apparently they saw me and flipped out. It was fun watching them stew.

I'm glad you stood up to her.
love you -

Some people!! Sometimes I do things like that too. You don't stop to think you just react.
You do have to be careful though. Lots of crazy people out there.

That was gusty!!!

Lena said...

Boy, I say that was brave of you! Yes, she could have reacted badly towards you. Glad she didn't.

Wonder if you could have made a citizen's arrest?

Portia said...

Way to speak up! Reminds me of those people who are provoked to say something on that show What Would You Do?

Fiwa beat me too it - People like that lady make me SO MAD! the arrogance! It's like they think the whole world revolves around them and they don't have to follow the rules. There are a lot of crazys out there - be careful!

Summer said...

I admire you for what you did, but you have got to be careful these days. You just never know who has a gun tucked under the seat of their SUV.

It makes me laugh that you told the woman about her garbage...you are such a good person, cheryl. I would have felt the same as you, but probably wouldn't have done anything about it.

Hope your weekend is going great.

What a self-centered woman. Doesn't she realize that public streets are everyone's business?
