WTF Wednesday: Mike's Market

WTF Wednesday is a semi-regular feature of this blog. It documents the things that have made me pause, slap my forehead and say, "What the f**k!"  Well, that and I just like saying WTF. I'm retired. I don't have to watch what I say anymore. I'm not any one's role model.

They know me at Mike's Market.  I'm a regular.  Every day, rain or shine, I get my fix of Diet Coke for just a dollar.  At the beginning of the school year when I was working, I was there early in the morning.  Now that I'm on a more relaxed schedule, I roll in sometime after 10:00.   I fill my giant Big Gulp mug with ice and Diet Coke, and if the lottery is over a hundred million, I might spring for one ticket.  The Diet Coke will last me all day.  It's 9:00 p.m. as I write this and I'm still sipping on the one I bought this morning.  Those Big Gulp mugs are well insulated.

This morning I was filling my mug when the clerk asked me, "Are you working today?"

"No," I responded. "Why?"

"Well," she said. "You're all dressed up."

"I'm wearing sweat pants and a fleece pullover."

"Yeah," she says "but you match." 

WTF???  Maybe it's time for me to upgrade my retirement wardrobe.
