I think Alaskans were dumbfounded today...
The sun came out!
Yes, it was beautiful.... through those big glass windows that surround the Scrapbook Store!
It was even more beautiful.... through the seemingly endless crowd of people going in and out of the store!
Even though I worked all day, I've never seen so many happy faces in one day. I've never had so many people say to me "I thought about you when that sun came out today!" (I guess I do complain about the weather a lot in my blog posts but it's nice to know my customers are entertained by my blog)! And I was surrounded by the sweetest scrappers (Ms. Lisa and the ever so funny duo of Leslie and Beth) and "Hyper-Heidi".
And here is my ever so funny moment of "my" day:
Ronalyn: Looking over at Beth who just walked in, in her APD outfit.. I trailed along behind her, staring at her crisp uniform, eyeballing the bulk under her chest, knowing that she's got some protective gear on, trying to listen intently at the radio attached to her arm. Walking beside her, I tell her,
"Wow, I already feel so safe.. so protected..so important!"
She shrugs it off, like it was nothing. Little does she know, I'm already daydreaming about what it's like to be "in uniform" to walk along the streets of Anchorage, sworn to honor and protect, as the theme song from one of the CSI's enter my brain.. oooh-wah-ooh-ooh. But in reality if I was a cop, I would just be the person that writes all those tickets on your car when you've over extended your stay at the meters!
"Man, Beth, you've got the coolest job, here I am cutting up endless mounds of paper, and you get to catch bad guys! So tell me what it's like!"
Sounding a little to excited, like a kid propped up next to her bed awaiting her bedtime stories of knights in castles saving the damsel in distress.
Then suddenly, the radio on her shoulder starts speaking "Attention, units in the area we got a code 10-99 in progress." (I just made that code up for entertainment purposes, I'm not sure what the code was:) I thought I was gonna jump out of my pants! I felt like saying "oh, take me, take me please!" You know like that scene in some alien movie, where the people are all on top of a builiding with signs, "Take Me" as the Alien Motherhsip hovers over them!
Ronalyn: "Oh what are they saying.. what code? Hey I know codes!!! I watch a lot of CSI's and Law And Order!"
Beth leans over and laughs. She must get this reaction all the time, right?
***Brought to you by, a moment in my "ever so entertaining" life.
Enjoy your Wednesday, Hump Day!
