Signs I'm becoming my parents...

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!
