How The Grinch Stole Texas Pride Day

So many things today!

First...QUINCE QUOTE! No, this is not the post about this month's contest, but be looking for it later today. I have the movie all picked, and the quote as well, but I am desperately hoping that Heather will send me a picture of the goodies she received last month, so I may include it in the post later on today. Why? Because I think that if you saw the awesomeness that was her prize, more of you may be urged, bribed, or enticed into entering. I should, have the post up by 8:00 pm, central time. Are you chomping at the bit?

Second, Mamarazzi is hosting an awesome giveaway for a $25 gift card from Target. There are opportunities for up to 25 entries, and dangit, I'm gonna take advantage of every one! Now, my mom works for Walmart, so I'm not supposed to say this, but I love me some Target goodness! On the other hand, if my mom is reading this...HELP! My blog account has been hijacked by some Target loving freak! Hopefully that will do. Just so long as I don't mention that I also love Twix candybars...OOPS! I did it again! Sorry, Mommy! So, yeah, if you love yourself some Target too, head on over
HERE and compete against me. Hmmm, that kinda sounds like a bad thing.

Now...my story.

Do you ever feel like your life is imitating a movie? Yesterday, I had such an experience, which would have made for a really funny situation, had I been in a better mood, but alas, I was not. In my case, I may have been feeling like the "Grinch" but I was not doing bad things. In fact, I was operating under the blessing and direction of the Mayor of Whoville (Sissy's teacher) when I was volunteering at the school yesterday.
Taking down the bulletin board, that had proudly displayed all the things made for their
Texas Pride Day open house, I was less "stealing their Christmas" and more "taking down their Christmas decorations in July". Of course, not everyone saw it that way.
"Little CindyLou" appeared, just like in the movie, most likely while my bum was straight up in the air trying to reach a low lying armadillo. "Are you taking that down?" she asked with all the innocence and wide eyes that only a child can muster.
It took all the self restraint I could muster to not let my grinchy attitude morph into a bit out of a Bill Engvall routine.
I simply said "Yes" instead of saying what I really wanted to say, which was "why, no, my dear. I was just putting UP blank wall, and ran out!" Here's your sign.

Now, for your viewing pleasure...

Happy Thursday, Everyone!
