Just Because

Because life is too short to wear uncomfortable under-britches.
(And they were having a sale, and the cute, teenaged checkout girl sprayed the tissue paper with scented body spray, then informed me that I qualified for a free miniature bottle of "Katie", then gave me a giftcard redeemable after Dec. 1 for an undisclosed amount, then asked me which ribbon I wanted tied to the handle of the bag.)


Because sometimes it's good to keep it simple and state the obvious.
(And I had the chance to take a real lunch break today with my flea market soulmate and she's even more fantastic than I thought, and we took turns talking nonstop so that we could actually eat our meal, and we both dropped food on ourselves during the course of our hour-or-so together.)


Because faded brick and paned windows with green vines are no-fail.
(And dark red works for me more than ever, this time of year and it had been too long since I had taken a picture out of my window whilst driving.)


Because all our days are numbered.
(Run, wild turkeys, RUN!)

Because holding a real dollar all the way from Kohls to The Dollar Tree is a pretty big deal.
(And Papaw will love the paint roller and generic brake fluid they chose for his birthday gifts.)


Because he has heard his Mama say one too many times that it's good to "Mix It Up" when it comes to fashion.
(I drew the line at his blue mesh basketball shorts worn atop the grey pants. I just couldn't do it today. I think the tie dye did me in.)
