Things I learned today

The items I want are the only things not on sale.

Smiles and frowns are running about even.

Dollars stores have the longest line at the cash register.

A daughter can work at a cheese shop named Sam and Son.

Interesting imported cheese is expensive but worth every penny when bought in small quantities. ( Roaring Forties ..... Ilchester beer, ..... Yorkshire Wensleydale apricot )

A kilogram of spareribs gets heavy when it's your first purchase at the market.

Downtown hasn't been improved by Christmas decorations.

Queues at bus stops are out and clusters are in.

Everyone wants a row of seats to themselves.

School kids have no idea how much room their backpacks take up when standing in the aisle or how lethal they are when they turn quickly.

Bus drivers smile when you say Thank you, Merry Christmas when you get off at your stop.

I bought a very small bit, just for Paul. You and he share a taste for it Jayne.

Mmm cheese shops!!

I find that you can tip the balance of the frowns/smiles when you practice one more! Oh, and you use your last thing you learned...

Love that Holiday Spirit! :D. Somehow everybody gets sucked in and every body loves/hates it. Never heard of ANY of those cheeses. Going to have look again at our two (count them two) grocery stores. Wish I were there to share the spareribs! Have a good one!
