What am I doing wrong? I'm trying and tryind and trying, and it's just like it's not enough for Dee.
We go out, see a movie, walk around the mall, and she points out the Docker's store. And I remember that she's complained about my ill-fitting pants, so we look around and of course the largest size they have isn't even close to what I need. Then we looked in Big Dogs, a "big size" store, and all they have is shorts, and the shorts in my size are a full drawstring waist. The "normal" shorts only go to size 42. In a fucking "big size" store. What the fuck is up with that.
Of course, then we were just quiet the rest of the way, and I pulled us into the Virgin Megastore, and we were quiet and looking around and stopped at In & Out for lunch and I asked Dee what she wanted to do, and there wasn't anything except come home and check on the cats instead of sitting there. Which I can't really blame her for, just sitting at the restaurant after we're done eating is pretty dumb.
So we're sitting here, and Peanut starts making the hacking-I'm-goona-puke sounds, and Dee does nothing, so I grab some sort of sacrificial papar and try to get it between Peanut and the carpet but, nope, not a fast enough reaction from me. Dee just chimes in that it would've just scared Peanut away... *sigh* why try I guess. So now we're home, who knows what else to do today, and I just feel like a bloody miserable excuse for a person.
My emotions swing way too much, way too fast. At least the swing today wasn't so terrible that I didn't get things back together mentally. It was more of a "pissed at the world" type thing than anything else. Stupid stores.
Anyway, we stayed home for quite a while, but headed out to Best Buy so I could get a copy of the Animatrix while it was still on sale. Of course, since I have it now, it'll probably be on sale again next week, too. But I also picked up the second season of South Park on DVD, but I felt bad that nothing tickled Dee's fancy.
We started home, but then decided we didn't really want to go home, so I just got on the 405 northbound, as it was the first onramp I saw. I asked Dee what would make her happy, and it took her a while, but she mentioned Chocolate Thunder from Down Under, but I couldn't recall where an Outback was. We were getting close to the Bellflower area, so I asked if she could direct us to an Outback up there, and she obliged and directed us to the Lakewood Mall Outback. I had some wings, and she had her Thunder. Then we came home with a quick stop for some supplies.
Anyway, I really shouldn't have posted this afternoon when I did. I wrote that right after the Peanut incident, and my emotions got the better of me. Bah, I need a sanity check button, not a spell check button!
