While out shopping this weekend, I noticed a lot of hostile people, which is totally crazy. Where the heck do they get off being so nasty? I mean it was only Dec. 1st, so they had no right to act like a bunch of elephants on crack! That right only comes for us last minute Christmas Eve shoppers! Then, the gloves come off, and we do whatever necessary to score the amazing gift we're too stupid to purchase before the brutal masses emerge.
Anywho, I'm not sure why people were in such a tizz this past weekend, but after a lady rammed me in the perfume isle at TJ Max, I stood back and observed all the body language going on. The outing ended up being a perfect way to collect character traits for my WIP. So, the next time I go out, (and I will, but with pepper spray) I plan on taking a note pad and pen. I will embrace all the grinches out there and thank them for their help in creating hostile characters. And I vow not to use the pepper spray, unless totally necessary to complete my little princess' Christmas wish list. So, if you see me on the news, don't judge. Just bail me out of jail, and we can people watch together.
Until the next time, happy writing, friends!
