First of all, remember how I forgot my favorite water bottle on the table at Grumpy’s and was all woe is me? I got it back! There was much rejoicing at writing group last night when Tiffany, my favorite Grumpy’s waitress, reunited me with the bottle. Then there was much name calling when Steve discovered I had already replaced1 the beloved bottle. NOTE TO SELF: stop calling yourself bougie. People think it’s really funny and then when they start calling you bougie, and then you get annoyed because you’re totally NOT BOUGIE.
Second of all, thank you for all the solicited advice. The confrontation with the unpleased went okay. I’ve hatched a plan whereby the next time he/she is unpleased the unpleasedness will be strictly his/her fault and not mine at all. You should read the advice. Some of it is really brilliant2.
1 I have a theory that if you really love some thing, a thing you use every day all the time (like sunglasses or glasses glasses or water bottles or pens), then you should have two of them. This way you don’t get all bummed out if you should lose or break that thing, because you have a back up. Sure the back up seems subpar at first but eventually you get used to it. I didn’t have a good backup water bottle. I had the cool looking, hard to suck out of water bottles as backups. Bad move. So I got a backup for the original, beloved water bottle (I also got a back up to the back up). If that makes me bougie so be it.
2 I didn’t really have anything to add to the word brilliant, I just thought I needed another footnote. Also, I stole the footnote idea from Christa who also used footnotes today. But she quoted a Poison song and I’m wearing a t-shirt that says “talk nerdy to me” so I figured it’s alright3
3 Yes, I wore this shirt yesterday. Suck it.
