-At the start of my shift, we had a team huddle to discuss store business matters. The first matter, and most important, was us all sampling the new Unicorn Frappuccino. A quality meeting, if I have ever been to one.
-An elderly woman remarked to me that it smelled like something was burning and asked if someone had burned popcorn. As a result, she spent the remainder of the transaction cackling to herself. If she thought that her joke was a funny one, I believe I may have finally found a good audience for my comedy.
-A Chubby Puppy wind-up toy was left at my register. I have named her Juniper and I love her, inability to walk in anything but a circle and all.
-In regards to the card reader before him, an older gentleman noted, “This seems like a pretty nice keyboard. I think I can solve it.” He inspires a great deal of faith in me. I think he can solve it, too.
-An older woman asked me if anything that she had purchased was on Cartwheel. I told her that I did not know off the top of my head, at which point she responded by glaring at me threateningly and telling me that I looked smart, so I had better be sure and I had better be right. Luckily, I know very few things in life, so it is more than likely that Cartwheel offers fall into this category.
-A couple bantered over how much they had each spent. The woman, having bought the most, said, “It makes sense, you are cheaper than me.” After a moment, the man replied, “I’m trying to think of something to say, but you drove and you’re paying.” Not since Machiavelli has one held all of the cards so masterfully.
-A sweet grandfatherly man, sporting a pinstripe shirt that seemed to have been with him as long as his timeless smile, came through holding a purple and yellow rubber ball. He asked me if I thought it would be good for four square before pausing for a moment and asking me if I knew what four square is. Overjoyed when I said yes, he told me of his plans to teach the neighborhood kids and help them be more active. He then said that he was going to go let his friends know that the ball would work. I later saw him with a pair of women, each as happy and smiling as himself. This man knows all that one needs in life, and I hope to one day learn from him.
-A young girl noted Juniper by my register and asked if she could pet her. I naturally said yes, as long as she was careful. Gently cupping the pup in her hands, she complimented me on how soft my plastic friend was.
Some parts of the pregnancy are slightly exaggerated to give more humor.
• It’s no secret, Chris has said many times he wants to be a dad and he’s looking forward to it. So, when you stand in the bathroom with the positive tests in hands, you really aren’t stressed about telling him. You’re quite excited to see his face because you love kids too. • When you tell him you’re pregnant, he looks at you with wide eyes because he has no idea how to react: he’s probably thinking of how much he wants to kiss you for the rest of his life or asking you to marry him all over again, or even make another baby right now! • Though, it’s not long before he reacts when he sees the five pregnancy tests. He laughs so happily as he spoons you in his arms that you can’t help but giggle and he keeps telling you he loves you so much. • He can’t even stop kissing you or your tummy. • The first days after the announcement, he keeps giggling with you and asks himself if it’s a dream or not. He also tries not to freak out and get nervous. • Your families are overly happy to hear the news. • His mother cries at this moment because her baby boy will have his own baby. • Chris worries about his ability to be a good father, but you kiss his insecurities away and tell him he is a great father already because he wants to be a dad for so long and that’s also something he gotta learn with time and with you. • He takes care of you all day. Every day. • You can wake him up at 2 in the morning to eat your favorite meal. • You both eat Starbucks’ jelly beans right after. • Chris plans your baby’s first trip to Disney World secretly. He buys everything he needs to make sure they will love everything related to Disney! • He is unsurprisingly protective. • Chris grins like an idiot for hours whenever he hears the heartbeat of your baby and when he feels their very first kicks. • - “Stop carrying me everywhere, Chris. I can walk. I’m pregnant, not sick.” - “I know, but I don’t want you to take a risk.” • Chris is here for you every step of the way and assures you he loves this baby and you more than anything else. • He realizes that marrying was the best choice he made you when your hormones are going wild. • One day, you catch him purchasing some Patriots baby gift sets and clothing.

Because you carry life, so nothing is more beautiful. - “Chris, why are you even staying with me? I look like a potato.” - “You are perfect and this the most beautiful moment of our lives. It’s our baby inside.” - “Okay, I trust you this time. But only because you’ve also gained weight.” - “That’s my gi… Wait, what?!” • Chris sings Disney songs every night to your baby before sleep. Let’s be honest, he does this all the time. • He wants to have a boy first just to teach him how to prank you in the future.
BonusBonus: • He is in-between a mix of stress and joy when you go into labor. He’s there for you, though. • You almost crush the bones of his hand when you push. - “Never again! I will never let you touch me ever again, Evans! Heard me?!” - “Don’t exaggerate, it’s- OUCH!” - “Please, Mrs. Evans, stop threatening your husband. You have to push!” • Chris cries and smiles when he holds your baby for the first time.
So I was finally able to take some better pictures of my Mulan and Shang set!
I love this set so much! Pictures do NOT do it justice! I’m so impressed with all the details Disney put into Mulan especially! I would honestly liken the quality of Mulan’s outfit to that of the first line of designer couple dolls. She’s THAT impressive! And she’s not even wearing a dress!
Your bones ached. Your feet ached. Your muscles ached. Your
back ached. You freakin’ teeth ached. You waddled of of the elevator into NCIS.
You knew he didn’t want you at work just incase but dammit, you were pushing
nine months and you needed your
husband. “Only in emergencies” he had said, and this? This was an emergency if
you ever had one.
You moved your feet, shuffling, toward where you had been
directed to find him. As you approached, you saw who you gathered to be…Tom?
No, no… When you were close enough to his desk, he looked up.
“Hello,” you smiled, “I’m looking for Jethro Gibbs.”
When I was a kid, I thought Team Magma was a team of devil worshipers due to their horned hoods and red outfits. (I totally didn’t think they were evil geologists) My sister asked her boyfriend if he liked ‘pirates’ or ‘satanists’ more in order to choose what version of oras to give him. So that’s kinda why I drew them messing with a ouija board.
I really wanted to do a big Haikyuu!! print for AX but I kept going back and forth on what I would do for it and in the end only had time to do something simple like the moment Shouyou discovered the Small Giant;;
But I hope you guys like it still! It was really fun to put together so at least there’s that uvu;
