Frightened

I decided to take a day off last Friday and make it a four-day holiday weekend. Now as I sit writing this on Sunday I am envious of the people who didn't take Friday off because they still have 2/3 of their holiday weekend ahead of them whereas I have only 1/2.

Today we were in the car stopped at a signal while this middle-aged woman crossed the street in front of us. Julie remarked that she looked like she was being secretive about something. I hadn't noticed her and when I looked up at her, she was halfway across, right in front of our car. She stopped, briefly looked at us then ran the rest of the way across the street.

That's the first time in my life I ever saw anything like that. That was funny.

So far I am definitely enjoying the iPad that arrived the other day. I love the touch screen. Julie says she can't understand why I like it so much since I am so finicky about getting fingerprints on anything. That's true - when you look at the screen from an angle you can see fingerprints all over it. Not very pretty. But you can't see them when the unit is turned on, luckily. Yes, my liking the touch screen is incongruent from the remarks written about me by my early grade school teacher who said "gets very upset if he gets dirty." Or maybe she used the word "messy." I don't remember exactly, but you get the idea.

Maybe I'll wear gloves. I guess they can't be rubber gloves, though, huh?

I am envious of you, but I don't want the iPad... Weird. You'll get used to the fingerprints. I had to just let it go. Can't use your fingernail either. Buy a stylus if it really bothers you. LOL. You must have looked like her ex husband or her parole officer or something! How strange.
