Impulsive Decisions

WordPress asked the question: What’s the most impulsive thing you’ve ever done?

One word; move.

I was, for close to half of my life, a gypsy. Moving from one place to another, never staying in one place for more than two years. It started with my mother when I was a child. I can honestly say that I did nine years of public school (k-gr. 8) at six different schools, in two different cities. We were poor, and she would sign a contract to lease an apartment for two years. When the lease was up, they’d raise the rent and we were off. That didn’t stop until high school and living with my step-father, but at the age of eighteen, I was out the door and back at it again. Hell, in three years (age21-24) I moved five times, and one of those was a ‘bad-breakup-last-mintue-throw-everything-into-plastic-bags-and-get-the-hell-out’ move.   

Sometimes, I just get this urge to move, but I keep it suppressed. I promised myself I wouldn’t make my kid live like that. He’s good at making friends and all, but it’s hard always being the new guy.

Oh yeah, and then there was that time I was drunk and got the impulse to jumped over a six foot wall wearing four inch stilettos. Those were some tough shoes.

Random Wednesday: Something about me.

WordPress posted this blog prompt: Name a discontinued product that you wish you could still buy.

I can’t remember the name, and I don’t know if you can still buy it or not (I haven’t seen it in years), but it was sponge toffee. You know, like a CRUNCH bar, but without the chocolate coating.

I loved that treat. It was the only candy I would buy at the corner store near my highschool when I was in grade nine. Every few days I’d go over and buy a pack of smokes and a package of sponge toffee. After a while, the cashier knew me by name and I knew how much both items were, tax included.

He asked me one time why I bought it, and I made a joke about needing the sugar high to get me through my afternoon classes. He smiled and brought out a sandwich baggie full of pills. Actually, it was more a bag full of uppers, downers, yellowjackets, and other things that would ‘help’ me stay awake. And guess what! The first few were FREE!

Needless to say, he wasn’t working there much longer.

Picture of Sithboy!

Yes, here he is Ladies and Gentlemen. The one who kicks me off the internet to attack me on Facebook games, then gloats about how powerful he is compared to me. The one who never left my side when I broke my ankle and waited on me hand and foot when I did. The one that makes me laugh, makes me cry and makes me colour my hair, and as much as I gripe about him sometimes, I have no idea what my life would be like without him, and I don’t want to know.

Random Stuff – Funny!

 I love this!


Silly Kitty

I love my cats, but they get themselves into the oddest predicaments. This is Molly, while trying to fish a toy out from between the couch sections, she got her paw caught on the material.

Some how I managed to get my hand in there and unhook her nail. THEN, I had to reach in and get the toy. Ah, the things we do for our family. 🙂
