Super Bowl Sunday
Last night was a good one...good food-good company good game-good win!
We met at ( Chris and Joy-Joy) my son and DIL's house for the game and dinner and snacks. We were Chris and Joy-Joy-Mike and Joy-(my sis and BIL) Alan and Lauren (my nephew and his wife- and Charles and me!
The ladies were , mostly, in the kitchen chatting during the first half- up until the halftime show!
Wow-it was a thrill for me to see The Who perform the halftime show -and -IMO-they were super good! I hope to find some youtubes of the show, but haven't looked yet!
OK-The game itself was exciting...and very tense in the second half- which we all watched and cheered as the Saints pulled off that big win!! Everyone was happy in our little circle, with the outcome of that game! :)
It turned out to be one of my bad nights of sleep...not only did I have trouble getting there but when I did I had the weirdest dreams ever... In one part of that strange story I was lost from my sister , in a huge crowd of strangers- without my purse or $$$ or cell phone-nor my camera LOL!
(Yes-MY CAMERA!!!) I kept thinking (in the dream) if I just stand here-holding on to this rail
( in front of a building where we had both been standing) my sister will come back! ....but she didn't-to my best recollections...as the way with strange dreams it just continued on with other outlandish things happening...In one part C. and I were also in a strange and huge crowd of people...saw twin little boys almost go over a cliff and we were trying to save them...(I hope we did)...on and on...all thru the night...
Needless to say I awoke early and with a feeling of having rested not at all.
Had to go shopping, nonetheless...for groceries and other stuff at Walmart... Had a weird encounter there too...almost like a continuation of my restless night...
Since it was past lunch time and I had not eaten since my early morning coffee and toast I decided to have a sandwich and coffee in the McDonald's in Walmart. The restaurant there is tiny , with just a few places to sit but I picked a spot away from the other tables- a small, 2 seat table...I had just started to eat my chicken sandwich when a man approaches my table with his food and says,"Do you mind if I sit here?" Well...I was taken aback-taken completely off guard...and well-since we were complete strangers to each other...and since there were other tables available for him...I was surprised to say the least- but -not wanting to be rude I said, "No, I don't mind!" This man -in the space of maybe 10 minutes-asked me the most direct and personal questions...Oh-nothing"out of the way" (as my sweet Mom would have put it) but, my goodness,
who wants to start giving out any info at all to a complete stranger?? ....How long have you lived here...Where were you originally from...Is your husband shopping with you....And I was told about his health problems...and the age of his mother(91) :) and that he eats lunch there every day... and that he had been looking for a rich wife for a long time...In Wal-Mart???? :)
OK-I have to say that's the quickest I have ever finished a sandwich and drank coffee...Most of it went in the trash, to be honest! I wished the man a good day and went on my way to finish my shopping!
At the time it just felt strange...but thinking about it I realize it was probably a 'come on' to me...lol-if that's even the right term. HAHA- I asked Chas if he thought the old guy was flirting with me, or what...and he said,"Of course he was!" Well, hey-I'm a few decades out of practice for these things...
As a result I did my shopping - very slowly- thinking the old guy might be waiting to try to talk to me again...
AHHH- a strange day following a strange night!!
Hope tonight and tomorrow are better!
