Heavier Things

i can't believe how often i find myself carrying really heavy objects. ever since i moved into an apartment on the third floor with an elevator that takes longer than it takes me to walk to the nearest wal*mart, i have found myself always needing to carry huge things up the three flights of stairs.

it first started when we forgot the dolly when i was moving in, and we had to carry all of my boxes up. then it's become a weekly task of carrying down all of my laundry(which usually takes three loads) and back up. one of the worst was when i had to park in the back parking lot and carry in an entire computer single handed...mind you this computer was EXTREMELY heavy and EXTREMELY awkward.

now tonight. for some reason i decided to buy a twenty pound bag of potatoes. my teacher told me to practice cutting potatoes, but why i decided i need TWENTY pounds to practice on...i'll never know. i believe it was becuase it was the same price as the ten pound bag. either way...i once again found myself not only carrying up all of my groceries, but this huge twenty pound bag of potatoes too. i'm sick and tired of it. i refuse. you can't make me do it. next year i plan on living on the first floor...or in an apartment with an elevator that goes faster than the SPEED OF LIGHT.

The Claw

So yesterday my work, still Kara's, had me scheduled to "personalize" truffle hearts all evening. Basically like frosting cakes. All of them basically said "happy valentines day mom" or "i love you puppsie" and my favorite "our love is like a booger". i didn't ask for any esplaining about that one, but now i really wish i had.

By the end of the night my hand was getting a little swollen. if any of you have seen the friends where chandler plays pac man for hours and hours on end you know exactly what my hand looked like. "the claw". it was stuck in a jumbled up cramp, and was REALLY killing me. i was getting more and more pissed of by every customer that came in asking for a heart, i was ready to say, "no. no. you CAN'T have a truffle heart. now get out of my store immediately." but i didn't, i kept on trecking.

it was nearing nine o'clock, the beloved closing time, and i started to clean up. i completely jinxed it when i told the girl i was working with "i am NEVER doing another one of those hearts again!" seeing as when i turned around to grab my stuff there was an old lady, he then went on to ask me if i could do twelve hearts for all of her kids. WHY DID YOU HAVE SO MANY KIDS LADY! this would have been a lot easier if you had been smart and stopped at like, three. then after those, a little girl came back with hers saying she had smashed the icing, and i had to redo it. i had about six more orders before i could leave. That's a lot...each one takes about ten minutes. i was SO mad.

so to heck with truffle hearts. i hope you're all greatful.
