~ It's Friday! Can I get a "woot-woot"?
~ I completely forgot to mention what happened to me when I went to Crane Point when we were in the Keys. Apparently not many people take the time to visit, because the place was just about empty when I was there. I started walking along the trails (all alone, nobody was around me), and I heard something. My first thought was that it was an iguana, so I bent down and took a look. Nope, no iguana, but it was a raccoon. I thought, "cool, a raccoon". That thought was followed by, "Oh, no...a raccoon...in the middle of the day!" I started walking away from it pretty quickly, until I came up on a couple. I told them what happened, and stuck by them for a few minutes. Then, I ran into another couple who were behind me. The woman said they didn't see the raccoon, so I figured it had gone on its way. She mentioned that the raccoon was on "Key Time", so it was probably okay. As I walked through most of the trails, I was alone. Which was fine until I imagined alligators in the mangroves. Kind of spooky.
~ We had an incident at one of my schools yesterday. Nothing major; just a stranger near the playground. Our SRO wasn't at school, but another policeman was "Johnny on the spot" within minutes. It was a harmless incident, but it's nice to know that it was taken care of quickly.
~ Flute choir practice started back up last night. Last semester we practiced every other week for 3 hours; this time we're practicing every week for 2 hours. We are minus the high schooler this semester. We really had a pretty good practice. One of the ladies is highly allergic to perfumes, so I have to remember not to put on any lotion on Thursdays. Apparently I'm going to have to get some fragrance-free detergent for my clothes. I couldn't smell anything on my shirt, but she could. And, I had been wearing the shirt all day. I feel bad, but I don't know what else to do.
~ I hadn't heard "Baby Got Back" in a loooong time, but we heard it at least a couple of times on New Year's Eve, and once on the trip back. Then, I heard it again yesterday morning on the way to work. When it comes on, I just have to start shaking my booty like Cameron Diaz in "Charlie's Angels": (start around 25" and it lasts until 48")
~ I'm looking forward to a nice, relaxing weekend. Hope everyone has a good one!
