Arcade with play cards person again.
So as I’ve explained in some previous submissions, how it works is you buy a card and put credits (tokens) on it. Tickets you win from the games are e-tickets which automatically go on your card.
Now I wouldn’t say this is a “fuck anybody” but this lady.. Wtf..
I was cleaning the games and this lady near me just finished playing a game with her son. Now, the swiped screen will say once you’re done a game “you’ve won some tickets” and it will count up how many you’ve won and those will be added to your card. We also have signs ALL AROUND THE ARCADE that say “etickets are automatically added to your card”. Believe me, they’re EVERYWHERE. I stare at them 5 days a week.
So anyway, I hear this lady, when her kid is wondering why tickets aren’t feeding out of the machine (it takes some people a minute to figure out how it works sometimes) “They don’t give out tickets. It’s just for fun!”
Then she fucking turns to me “Right?”
Like??? What kind of arcades have you been to lady??? The only machines you don’t get tickets from either give out physical prizes (ie stuffed animals from the claw machines), the giant pac man, or are the racing/shooting games like motocross or big buck hunter. Everything else gives out tickets (basketball, skee ball, (hell we even have crossy road and flappy bird that give out tickets))
We have a fucking PRIZE ROOM. How you gonna get anything out of that without tickets?
Like what kind of dumbass..

An embarrassing story

Last night something really funny happened that is somewhat embarrassing for myself but it’s so hilarious I’ve been cracking up about it all day. Thus, I must share it.

I dreamed I was trying to concoct a recipe for banana daiquiris. I knew it needed to have bananas and coconut rum in it, but there was an elusive third ingredient that would really elevate it. I tried as hard as I could to remember what it was.

The answer came to me and I jolted awake. I nudged my sleeping husband and whispered excitedly,

“Yacker cranity!!!”

And as soon as the words were out of my mouth, I realized that, holy shit, I have no idea where they came from, because I knew it was supposed to be vanilla yogurt. So I hastily tried to correct myself while my husband muttered, “What are you talking about,” but he was probably asleep the whole time anyway. I was so surprised I had to write the words down in my phone so I wouldn’t forget. Even throughout the day I had to go back and look at it, because I couldn’t remember what I had said.

Yeah, sleep is weird, dreams are weird, I am weird. Life is fun!

Imagine Remus being traumatized after he barged into the bedroom where you and Sirius were making out.
“Why would you.. I mean.. what did you do with her- why do you do this to me, padfoot? I can never sleep again..I loved to sleep”

The Zodiac Signs When Remembering Something Embarrassing

Makes weird noises: Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus

It is hard to understand that after years of suppressing a memory, it comes and attacks you in full force. Almost as if it is an old friend, feeling forsaken and ignored and wants to make their presence known. Its terrifying to understand that I am in an entirely different place in life than when we first crossed paths and I am as vulnerable as ever. Ive been trying everything to loose myself and ignore the past but its not working. I’ll see in you in nightmares, around corners, in the middle of the day, during lunch, fucking everywhere. I’m both terrified and relieved once I realize that it isn’t actually you because I thought when I moved, I would leave you behind but I have come to understand that I might not ever be able to get rid of you.
