Monday, February 21, 2005 AD I Get So Excited When I Actually Manage to Behave Myself! I was supposed to have an ad for some furniture and other items in the local Pennysaver that came out last Thursday. It didn't show up. So I wanted to call them and get that cleared up, but in my mental rehearsals I kept ending up yelling, so I didn't call all day Friday. I knew I needed to call before 10 this morning, though, or I'd miss this week's copy deadline. I was still Miss Cranky* at 9:23, but I prayed through it, and God was merciful and made my attitude better. I made the call and was polite and even got them to give me a free upgrade -- a "Moving" banner to make the ad stand out. :-)
*Did I ever tell you about my friend Steve? We (our frinend Lisa and I) called him (and he called himself) "Mr. Crankypants" and "The Grumpster." I tried for "Miss Crankyskirt" for myself, but it never stuck. I'm open to suitable suggestions!
P.S. Of course a few minutes later I was back to being cranky.... Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 2/21/2005 10:39:00 AM
