After I wrote that first “Ready” post on Day 10 of this blog, I was ready to create this t-shirt:
I left the house before I felt ready yesterday (wearing that t-shirt) because a furniture delivery at our new home by the sea was scheduled between 7:30 and 10:30 AM. I wondered if I would be ready for my 9 AM haircut appointment, miles away, and then ready for Comcast to come to the new home in the afternoon.
The furniture delivery guys showed up at 8 and I was ready for them. However, I wasn’t ready for this exchange:
Furniture delivery guys: You ordered a white table, right?
Furniture delivery guys: You didn’t? That’s all we’ve got.
Furniture delivery guys: It’s a poker table, right?
Me: Are you guys yanking my chain?
Furniture delivery guys: (silence and then laughter when I punched one of them in the arm)
Me: Do you guys usually pretend you have the wrong stuff?
Furniture delivery guys: ALL THE TIME.
Even though I wasn’t ready for those guys to be such excellent actors that I was totally fooled for a few moments, I was ready for them to deliver our dining room set and so were they.
They were definitely ready for their close-up.
On my way to MiAlisa salon, I was ready to take a picture of a car in front of me with the license plate “ANGRY,” with my iPhone set to ready, aim, fire on the dashboard of my car.
Ready to learn that the car on the left is the Angry one? That reminded me that those ready furniture delivery guys had told me that people readily get angry when they pretend they have the wrong stuff in the truck.
Ready for my other photos from yesterday?
Whether or not we’re ready, we’ve moving to our new home by the ocean tomorrow, July 17.
Gotta go pack so we’re ready for the movers tomorrow at 7 AM, but first, are you ready for more thanks from me?
