EARLY MORNING GUESTS

Once upon a time, Grandma J had plans for a full day of shopping and lunch urgent appointments in Dallas. And once upon a time happens to be today. But wouldn't you know? An old friend calls last night and wants to come see me today. Of course we know the timing is all wrong because, well, you know.....Grandma J has stuff to do in Dallas.


So it breaks my heart in two when my day's schedule is so jammed packed that I have to tell special friend that I only have time to visit if they come for early morning breakfast.

OK, so it wasn't really breakfast.....more like coffee, a tad bit of juice and the morning paper.
OK, no juice.



I don't know about you, but it amazes me when some people are so chipper before the sun comes up....all laughing and joking. What's up with that?


And, it takes a lot of gall to bring some little smart ass twerp a juvenile hedge fund manager along. I mean....no, I don't want to convert my under mattress assets to a non-equity, non-interest bearing account.

Please save me a copy of that paper, I can't believe we made the headlines and it hasn't even occurred yet. And just look at the man making eyes at Grandma J, who's looking all coy.

Grandma J has all the fun.

Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and make time for old friends.

I wonder what those full page ads cost in Texas.

I feel and look terrible in the morning! My brain literally melts at the thought of having to get out of bed. Thank goodness for coffee!

I like your red earrings. Are they new??

Hate to tell you this, but I tend to be a morning person. I'm MUCH more productive in the morning, and I don't like to have to do a bunch of stuff when I get home from work!

I guess you will be bunking as far away from me as possible at Blog Fest, huh?

I am not a morning person either - ugh actually I can't stand early mornings. Although the older I get, the easier mornings become- Oh Lord, I am becoming my mother ;)

Have a good day in Dallas :)

No worries about me being chipper in the am. Unless it is really just the night ending!!

I hate the chippers in the a.m. Who the hell do they think they are anyway?

Next time, don't answer the compound door. Just say from the other side....Nobody's home!

peace

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Knock Knock! It's your neighbor checking in on you. Hurry up and answer the door before your other neighbor comes out and yells at me.
