|Scottie doodle greeting cards|
I don’t do well with lines. Lines are everywhere these days. I go to the grocery store and I patiently wait behind 10 people-- most of them with kids screaming for candy. My eyes dart around looking for a shorter line. I wonder should I line jump, will it pay off? Just as I switch to a shorter line I realize my miscue as the cashier turns on the light for assistance. Guess I will never learn.
I go into a department store during lunch to exchange a garment thinking this will be a quick trip and till I hear those dreaded two words....
I shrug and realize that my diet will not suffer today.
I drive into the gas station and probably use a gallon of gas driving around looking for an open pump.
My favorite line (totally kidding of course) is the line at the drive-through window at the bank. I kick myself wondering why I didn’t make it before the walk in hours. So I get behind a line of cars feeling much like the caboose in a very, very long train.
Now line boredom sets in with a vengeance. I twiddle and fiddle. I play with the check I am about to deposit. Warning: never fiddle with a check on the edge of your open car window.
The check slips in so quickly, so easily and then…it’s gone, into the nether world of the car door. And look, I am next in line. I pull up, and stare red-faced at the teller.
“Oops I forgot my deposit.” I lie, in a futile attempt to preserve my dignity.
Fortunately I am married to a very handy man. He, of course, had to take the door off to retrieve the check. He smiled and he didn’t say a thing. He knows his Crystal.
Yes, it’s true. I don’t do well with lines so I guess I’ll just stick to the lines that I actually enjoy…the ones applied to paper.
