I didn’t want to get up. I was still tired. But I am begrudgingly at times a responsible adult, and I have a day job. So I fought my way out of bed. Stopped at my computer to check in on the way to the shower. Got dressed, packed my lunch, and ran out the door.
Rough day at work. It happens sometimes. Got through it, and was a little later than planned when I was running out the door from work to go home before catching a movie. Too short on time to have supper, changed plans, and decided to eat at the Mall before the movie.
Traffic was backed up on the bridge, so we arrived at the mall just in time to buy tickets and see a preview or two. Then the movie started. We didn’t even have time to stop and buy popcorn.
Trolls was fabulous. Singing, glittery, rainbows and laughter everywhere, fabulous. Even with the hidden morals and the necessary bad guys. I mean, there has to be a villain, otherwise there isn’t much of a plot line. The jokes were for all ages, if you know what I mean. Lots of laughs and giggles. It was a fun movie.
Finally, we had supper at the mall. I was almost hangry by the time I did get to eat. I am not usually the first one to finish what’s on my plate anymore. I always was when I was growing up, because that was how to get to your dessert faster. The most important meal for my day has always been dessert. But that is a topic for another day. I was still the last one done eating my supper, but it wasn’t a leisurely paced meal like I might have had at another time.
We drove my friend home after the movie. Too late to visit, everybody has to work in the morning. So we made our way back home. It is nice to get out of the house with friends for a movie, but we had to plan for the early show because of that whole responsible adult day job thing we all have to get up in the morning for. Unlike whomever had 2 car accidents on the bridge that stopped traffic before the movie, we all arrived home safe and sound.
So you are probably wondering what a Scotch Lick kind of a day is. Well, let me back up to this morning. My day basically started with a Scotch Lick, and didn’t slow down for very long all day. A Scotch Lick is when you take a shower, but don’t wash your hair. Because you are in too much of a hurry to make time for that extra step in the start of your day. My whole day was pretty much a rush from one thing to the next, all day long. Sure, you can be fancy and use the shower cap and not call it a Scotch Lick, but being half Scottish, I rather like the term, and it certainly applied to my whole day. I got everything done that was necessary, so now I plan to relax for the rest of the evening, and hope tomorrow is not lived in so much haste. Because I will have to make the time to wash my hair tomorrow.
