We must start by looking back to May 8-11, 2008 before we can delve into the happenings of this weekend. What happened in May but not June? Mother's Day. It felt like everywhere we went we heard a grateful "Have a Happy Mother's Day" aimed in our direction. This happened at the Grocery Store (several times), the local (plant) nursery, even at restaurants.
I thought about how cool it was that Anny was getting this special attention and recognition for all that she has done over the last year, and even before that. She is so shy about that stuff that I think it's good for her once in a while to be showered with attention. Maybe that's because I'm an extrovert, though....
Anyway, when last week rolled around I was excited to be heralded in the same manner! Clear the streets, a father is making his way into your presence!
We went to the farmers market. Nothing.
We went to the same grocery store and saw the same clerk. Nothing.
We went everywhere and I got nothing.
Okay, that's not true. On Father's Day proper we went to TGI Friday's with the family. I did get some FD attention from our waitress. I would like to point out that it was mostly due to the fact that Ms Adorable was sitting there shamelessly making eyes at her, but whatever.
What's the deal with this? Did you notice this to be true in your ventures out as well, or is it just that people don't like to give me accolaides?
