There is a commercial on TV where a man is trying to cool up people who have become their parents. The ads are cute but ineffective because I don't know what it's for. There are several versions & they are pretty clever. And I find myself in at least one person every ad. I pack snacks to travel because $5 for a candy bar in the airport is excessive. I wonder how much money the parking people at the stadium make for owning real estate. I compliment good employees because sometimes they are rare. So today I was out & did a couple of things that made me think I've turned into my Mom. And for the record, I can't think of a better person to turn into.
1. I went looking for half price Christmas loot at Walgreens. I bought Hershey's Kisses & Reese's Peanut Butter nutcrackers. And my friend found M & Ms. I'm ok with red,green & gold candies in March. Also if your birthday package has Christmas wrapping paper or the food I bring over is on a holiday plate appreciate my frugality.
2. Speaking of candies, I like the peppermints from the Sonic & I love hard butterscotch candies. I don't buy them but will eat one if it's handed to me.
3. I look for pull through parking spaces even if I have to walk a little further. I don't like backing up.
4. I have Consumer Cellular. For my $30 a month I gtet unlimited talk & text & enough cell data. I'd like a newer phone but not enough to pay for one. Mine is good. And I'll brag about this to anyone who'll listen!
