What I would have posted Thursday, had I not accidentally fallen asleep at 8:45, moments after my children gave it up:
I have succeeded in life. I can tell the Kirby guy NO (in no uncertain terms)BEFORE he crosses my threshold. I only had to say it four times. I only had to interrupt him four times to tell him no four times. I wasn't even apologetic. Thirty-three seconds an done.
Glory be, I think I have finally acted my age once.
