My (Long) Day

Yesterday started at 7 am, when I had to get up and get ready for work.
That's something I'll never get used to. Having to get up so early 4 days a week.
I used to struggle to get up early even a couple of days.

I went to work... worked. Then at 5:00 I met up with my friend Anna and we went to a communications meeting. Ended up converting her to becoming a Journalism major. Pretty funny actually.

We left and went to the casino to go bowling. I kept telling her that I had a feeling I was going to die in her car that night. She's a perfectly fine driver... it was just a hunch.
We got to the parking garage at the casino, and suddenly panic set in. Looking at the ramps going up in the parking garage, I realized...
"Anna, why are those arrows only pointing DOWN?"
"OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD!"
"I TOLD YOU, I TOLD YOU WE'RE GOING TO DIE."

Turns out the up arrows were just faded. But still. TERROR.

After that minor heart attack, we went bowling. We shared lots of laughs.
I threw the ball straight into the gutter with such force it almost bounced right back out... I shouldn't be allowed to throw heavy things.

Then we went to the arcade. The second we walked in, I saw a stuffed cookie monster plushie that I had to have. Sound familiar?
Let me remind you."I HAVE TO GET THE TWEETY".

So we shoveled money into the machines, got tokens, and started testing the games to see which ones cashed out the good tickets.
The cookie monster was 750 tickets. We wound up with...
490.
Balls.

We went up to the prize counter, handed him the ticket, and he said we had 500. It was nice of him to round it up. We asked him what we could get, and he said ANY of the stuffed animals.
*gasp* CAN I GET THE COOKIE MONSTER?!
My goal was complete! But that meant Anna wouldn't get anything...
He walked out of the back room with a cookie monster AND an elmo doll, and gave them to us.

Is it sad that the two of us, one 19 and one almost 18 year old, got so excited by Sesame Street dolls? And squealed like little girls?

But you know what? We did. And I'm STILL excited."C IS FOR COOKIE!"

Hey, it's ok to still be excited by Sesame Street dolls! The only time when it's not ok is when you're in middle school and trying desperately to prove that you're grown up and beyond all of that. Any other time is ok. :)

I think it's perfectly ok to want a stuffed Cookie Monster! I don't think you are ever too old for stuff like that.
