Nice People in the World

This morning I came in to work and was kind've in a lull. You know those moods where there's nothing really wrong, but you just feel "bleh" anyway? Oh, You're a male? You don't know what I'm talking about? Well, I was just moody okay? I had no reason to be moody, I just was. Then I got to work and found out I would be answering the phone all day, which took me over the edge from moody to grumpy. There's nothing like answering the phone when you're a grump. Forced to be nice and answer all sorts of questions like "what time will my child's bus come now that we're on daylight savings time?" ummm. the same time it always did. ugh.

My day was on a crash course down hill on a bike with no brakes.
Until...
(cue heavenly music)Ahhhhhhh...
My coworker Andrea walked over to my desk and handed me a coupon for a free flavored coffee from McDonald's. Then she proceeded to ask me which coffee it was that I wanted from there because she was going to go there and get it for me. She actually had 2 of these coupons so she handed me her second one and said "that's yours to keep" and out the door she went.

But wait. The story gets better.
About half an hour goes by and in she walks with my drink and a McDonald's bag with a yogurt parfait in it which she hands to me and says "this is just in case you don't get a lunch break today".
I know!
I looked at her and my mouth dropped and I told her she is the sweetest girl in the world and I asked her to be Dawson's God parent, right there on the spot. Well, not really but I did thank her profusely (profusely is a weird word) and told her I'd love her forever.
I'm no longer a grump.
Unless...
God is using my grumpiness to encourage all of you to buy me things.
JUST KIDDING.

I love people who buy me stuff... anyone??? Do I need to get grumpy too? Grumpy seems like such a smooth word as opposed to the horrible things that happen when one is grumpy... Especially when they are not bought anything...
