Hangers on No Politics Day

I have had a couple of really sweet experiences today. For an introvert, that is.

First, I took a Sunset Walk a couple days ago and there was a lost YakTrak on the sidewalk. A single one, I mean (I’m coining the term “YakTrak” as the singular of the plural “YakTrax”). It wasn’t mine because it didn’t have a strap. I have learned the hard way that YakTrax without straps easily come off so I always buy the ones with straps. Yesterday was a holly-day for me, so I was Sitting on the Green Couch Watching All the Dogz Go By before all the iPhone stuff and along came Ano and his human and his human walked up my driveway and deposited the lonely YakTrak on our front porch. I watched all of this but I was too introverted to go over and yell out the door something like, “Thanks but that’s not my YakTrak.” I saw Ano and his human in the woods this morning. It’s been a while. I had COLD2 and took a break and it turned out that Ano’s human had a slow period too. It was sooooo good to see those guys again. And I did tell them that it wasn’t my YakTrak but thanks anyway.

And then our sweeeeeet Building Mom… And I mean that loooooong sweet. This woman puts the “Mom” into “Building Mom”. Anyway, she Skyped me today to ask when No Politics Day was for me. I said it was today. And then I said that I usually kept NPD sorta quiet. She said she would keep mum and then, a little while later, she snuck the cutest little NPD card over to my cube. It was the size of a post-it note with cute sparkles. I love our building mom.

And so now I am home and we are cooking hangers on the grill tonight and Mouse is here to help us eat them. I don’t EVER want either of my children to go through hell or high water (aka snow driving) to spend No Politics Day with me. For a long time, my kids were too far away to come home for NPD and I didn’t usually spend that day with my moom either.

At any rate, my wish is that all of you have a good No Politics Day and I love you all.

    So, do you have the full set of YakTrax now? I wonder who they belong to. I need to have a bunch of NPD because I’m being driven insane by it all.
