Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune

Amazing Aaron

At first, Sarah and I thought that the spirit of Aaron was all around us at the market.  To honour Aaron's love of double meanings, I'll even venture to say that his spirit seemed to be inside of us.  (Heh heh heh!)

It all started when Sarah told me that she really liked the iPhone case that I had ordered for her (the one with the painting of Aaron on it), but she wanted Aaron to be bigger.  Sarah had meant that she  wanted the image to be enlarged, to cover the whole case.  Like schoolgirls, we giggled at this, though, because we both knew that Aaron would be laughing with a twinkle at this raunchy play on words.

Soon after this, a customer told us about how her husband used to sleep every night cuddled up to their late Siamese cat.  This type of cat isn't usually affectionate, but their car was.

And then, the customer did something kind of odd.  She was holding a bunch of pussywillows and explained that she loved rubbing the softness across her chin.  She  demonstrated this fact, and then rubbed my chin with a soft little pussywillow flower to show just good it felt.

Aaron, we were sure, would have laughed so hard at this!

Me at Market
My new "skull" dress

Today's crossword

While doing today's crossword, I came across a partial Shakespearean quote from Hamlet: "... Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune ..."  and thought how funny it was that I was wearing my skull dress.  I felt like using another quote from Hamlet: "Alas, poor Yorrick. I knew him, Horatio."

I wanted to talk about my dinner with Bruce and the kids, but I'm exhausted!  Sufficed to say, it was wonderful to see them!

What wasn't wonderful was the rain, freezing rain, sleet, and (I kid you not!) hail that I had to endure to see them and then return home.  Talk about slings and arrows of outrageous fortune!  Sheesh!

I WANT SUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
