Casual Is Not Always Appropriate (standard:humor, 907 words)
Author: GodspenmanAdded: May 03 2020Views/Reads: 66/32Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Being generous sometimes is a little act of kindness.

If confession is good for the soul, I would like to give my soul a
little treat. 

During this "stay-at-home" phenomenon, the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage and Yours Truly, have been enjoying our time alone. We 
certainly have taken advantage of it. 

Not too long ago, my wife came up with something to make our time a
little more memorable. She called it, casual pajama time. 

After breakfast, we would wear our morning casual pajamas. After lunch,
it would be our afternoon casual pajamas. And, after supper, it would 
be our evening casual pajamas. 

I never heard of this before, but I joined in with the fun. I knew what
time of the day it was by the pajamas I was wearing at that time. There 
is always something good in everything. 

It was early in the afternoon, and my wife took a nap. It was at that
time I remembered something she said earlier that morning. For some 
reason, she forgot to get milk and eggs at the grocery store yesterday. 
Thinking about that, I had a thought. You would think of all the times 
I have had thoughts, I would realize that they never come out with 
anything good. 

However, I thought this would be an opportunity to get one over on her.
I would sneak out, go to the grocery store, get some milk and eggs, 
sneak back into the house and put them in the refrigerator. Then, when 
she woke up, I would say, "Honey, I thought you said we didn't have 
milk or eggs?" 

That would be something I could live with forever and a day. 

Being as quiet as I possibly could, I went out to my vehicle and headed
for the grocery store. I was chuckling all the way to the store. I 
could not wait to pull this one over on her. 

I got at the store, parked, and began walking towards the entrance.
There seem to be quite a few people in the parking lot, and for some 
reason, everybody was looking at me and smiling or even laughing. 

I thought something was happening making people happy. Maybe I just
forgot how happy people really are in real life. I joined them in 
smiling and laughing. 

Going into the store, I walked to where the milk and eggs were, and as I
was walking, people stopped, looked at me and some smiled, some pointed 
a finger, and some even laughed. I thought to myself, what a wonderful 
world we live in when people are always happy and laughing. 

I even wore one of those masks that my wife made. Someone was looking at
me and smiling I said, “My wife made this mask. Doesn't it look 
wonderful?” To which they laughed almost hysterically. I could not keep 
from laughing either. 

Whatever this thing happening in our world today is, at least some
people are taking it on the lighter side. It is wonderful when people 
are not all bent out of shape, sad, and discouraged. I love to see 
people smile and laugh. 

I knew I did not have much time in the store and had to get home before
my wife woke up so I could pull this trick on her. Every time I thought 
of this, I was smiling on both the inside and the outside. I cannot 
believe I am actually going to get one over on her. 

Walking up to the cashier, I noticed people were still smiling and
laughing, and some were even pointing at me. I knew it had to be the 
mask because it was a great mask that my wife had made. 

The cashier greeted me with a very hesitant smile and rang up my items,
and I was to pay with my credit card. I made conversation with the 
cashier and then stuck my hand in my pocket to pull out my wallet. 

The problem was, I could not find my pocket. This has never happened
before because I always know where my pockets in my pants are. I
