what's the deal with June?

This month! It has been full of aggravating things. When exposed to too many aggravating things in a row, I become hypersensitized to aggravation or maybe aggravating things sense my attention and flock to my vicinity.  

  • Most annoying waiter @ trivia: UGH this guy! He wants to crouch/sit down and have a chat rather than do anything as useful as bring food and drink. Bad news for me and all others at our table: he's even worse at small talk than he is at waiting tables. BAD NEWS. I could go on (and on!), but I'm getting mad all over again and I want to go to sleep pretty soon. I dislike him so much I find myself thinking of Emma from Emma the novel (and movies!) and how she hated Mrs. Elton so much she had to throw a party for her immediately or everyone would know how much she disliked her. I feel like I would have to throw a motherflipping PARADE to disguise my dislike, which makes me feel bad because usually I can get along with people, you know? My job is getting along with people! But I can't do it with this guy -  I'm pretty easy going, but he just rubs me the wrong way in every regard. I can't even describe how he closed out our bill without having a rage blackout. I must assume we were enemies in a previous lifetime. 
  • puce is purple. People want it to be yellow-green (I assume because puce/puke are such close neighbors), but it remains purple. PURPLE!
  • smirk. A blog that I enjoy has had the word 'smirk' stuck in its word hopper for a week and it's clear she's thinking of a different (more impish, less asshole) kind of smile but instead  SMIRK keeps jumping out of the paragraph bushes and assaulting me with its wrongness. 
These are no big deal, right? I don't know why they're both getting up my nose so much. Probably because June is turning me into an awful person.  

  • I think someone tried to charity scam me last night. It was almost 9pm but still light - there was a knock on the door and when I opened it I found a lady with a clipboard. (This is not unusual in fine weather - tis the pre-election season for door to door do-goodery, which I know I've complained about before.) She was talking about healthcare, which okay! This is an important issue. She said some blah blah blah while I flipped through her signatures. I was willing to sign her thing, but she said she was collecting money and that 'at door donations' were so important. I said I wasn't going to give her any money - she grabbed her clipboard, said thanks for nothing (paraphrase) and was back on the sidewalk before I could put together what happened. What makes me think it's a scam is I can't think of a single legit organization that would leave without my signature or an email address (both of which I was willing to give). Then I realized she had no other literature, it was almost 9PM, and the thing she was talking about wasn't even really a thing, it just sounded like a thing that a lot of people (myself included) care about. So, beware the knock at 8:45.

  1. June certainly has been a bit of a pickle, hasn't it? I am not usually a fan of July, not for any other reason than I don't really think of it, but this year I am anxiously awaiting July!

    1. I LOVE JULY! But that's because my birthday is there. And because it is lovely. But anyway - YES. And this month is now almost over, along with its weird thunder and lightning and torrential downpours. To be fair, June has also had some lovely sunny 80 degree days, which is more than I can say for June of last year! But here's to the last few days of June and to some nice hot days in July!
