“Ways in Which I am Winning This Week”
By Aunt Peaches
1. I cleaned my couch yesterday and found 3 hairbrushes, a stuffed leprechaun, and $17.38 in cash.
2. I let a lady cut in front of me in line at Walgreens because she only had one item, and then when she proceeded to have a 15 minute/utterly fruitless argument with the clerk about said item’s sale price being twenty-two cents less, I did not grow fangs or a tail.
3. I snipped homegrown peonies from the garden, gently laid them in a basket specifically designed for such a purpose, then arranged them in a charmingly old vase (<<pronouced VAAAAS not VACE). Did they drop 50% of their petals them moment I set that vase on the table? You bet. Is it preventing me from fantasies of a career in professional flower growing and fancy flower arrangements? Not a bit.
