I'm Gonna Have a Piggly Wiggly Hissy Fit!

October 23, 2014

Do you ever have one of those days when you know that you should probably just wake up, roll out, and immediately take some kind of calmative?  Today was one of those days.  When I was growing up, I remember this one family with a house coat wearing, lazy mama and three dirty kids.  It seems like every time we ever went to the old Piggy Wiggly where Homer Douglas's feed store used to be, they were there.  I remember them having fits- boy dog fits!  These kids became known at our house as "The Piggly Wigglies".

The Mama was always dragging the littlest one by her arm, and every one of them was barefooted as a cat.  All three of them had dirty faces with crusty boogers and dried milk on them and they had grocery store feet, just filthy.  Every now and then, the littlest one would run away from the Mama screaming at the top of her lungs. She would then find a spot front and center in front of the checkout aisles and start spinning on her back in the middle of the floor acting like a crazy person.  I just thought they weren't right, but my mother always sighed heavily and would say under her breath with gritted teeth "I cant believe that woman lets those children just crawl around on this nasty floor and act like fools, I would whip their butts!" A trip to the Piggly Wiggly was always a show.

Today, I was so frustrated.  This entire week I've been so frustrated. Ever have one of those weeks when nothing goes right, not even your order at Waffle House?  Blame it on Mercury Retrograde, or whatever you want to blame it on, but the universe has been out of kilter.  Today, I had a moment and I was just beyond mad.  I  wanted to go full-on Piggly Wiggly in the doctor's office and it took all I could do not to just lie down in the middle of the floor and start screaming and spinning on my back until I was as dirty as the three spinning Piggly Wigglies.

Moral of the story- when Mercury is retrograde, go to yoga, have some good wine on hand, and don't sign up for anything new, because it will be a train wreck.

Love y'all, I'm going to spin on my back now and scream!
