Tiny Joys

Silly. Goofy. Slap-happy. These are terms usually reserved for other people other than myself. Words others would use to describe me: serious, reserved, analytical. I tour with my store manager during the last hour that I work on my shift. It is obvious at this point I am tired....and my character morphs into those words that describe a person a little on the daffy side. This is leading to the misinterpretation to others that I enjoy working third shift. Pictured above are some items that have brought joy to my face as I survive the morning tours. So much so, that I had to bring them home. Yes, that is Isaac from the Love Boat. And yes, when you open the card it plays the theme from the show. And, um, yes, when I hear that theme song I tend to disco dance....just a little. Next it 's Tuck the Turtle. He is from some animated television show that I am told children adore. Yesterday morning was the first time I have met the superhero turtle with his jaunty little french sailor cap. What a wonderful combination! As we toured the store I played the card for every associate that we encountered, did my little disco and introduced them to the superhero french turtle. It dawned on me later that my store manager may have been annoyed at such bizarre and joyous behavior. After all, I was supposed to be "working". Oh, the shoes came from the competitor down the road. I adore these shoes that remind me of strawberries. To spread the joy I will send the card out to the next available birthday person I know, the turtle is going in a baby welcome home gift package, and the shoes will stay with me for a tiny bit of joy in my step this summer.
