Thankful Thursday 6/22/2017

Yesterday I posted this to Facebook:

Some mornings are rough with Lyft, but most mornings are pretty good. Today my driver came from Philadelphia and when I hopped into his car, I noticed his poop emoji stuffie on his dashboard. I giggled and said, "I love the poop emoji sitting on your dashboard! My dad loved the poop emoji." He laughed and said I could have it to give to my dad.
I didn't think he was serious. During the ride we had a conversation and he mentioned he was from Abu Dhabi. I told him I wanted to visit one day, the UAE in general, and he was telling me all about his home town.
I digress, as soon as he dropped me off at the train station. He handed me the poop emoji and I thanked him in Arabic. Day made!
(Also my Jiffy recipe book - a free order - was in the mail box this morning!)

I still feel really thankful about being given that poop emoji. After a bad day on Tuesday, being given that little gift on Wednesday made my day. I know it sounds silly.

Today is also 18 years since Significant Other was released. This was my CD during the summer of 2001, back when I had to listen to edited music. Korn was the first CD I bought unedited in March 2013 when I was allowed to finally purchase unedited music. I'm not sure why I didn't replace my Limp Bizkit CDs with unedited ones, but I found Significant Other in Repo Records on Saturday for $1.99. Couldn't pass it up and have been listening to it ever since.

What are you thankful for today?


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I envy you, dear friend. After seeing that cute brown poop emoji, I want one of my very own! In fact, I want a whole family of poop emojis, including babies! :) It really is cute and it was an awesome surprise that the Lyft driver gave it to you. His generosity was no doubt inspired by your open minded friendliness, creating a win-win scenario. That type of interaction is what the world needs now.

    I remember Korn and Limp Bizkit. They were two of the bands responsible for changing my taste in music back then, allowing me to temporarily set aside my oldies and try a brand new sound and style.

    Happy Thankful Thursday to you, dear friend JM!

    1. Hi, Shady!

      My dad loves the poop emojis too and maybe for his birthday I'll give him the poop emoji family. I will admit, they make me smile too. :)

      I started listening to Limp Bizkit first, summer 2000. I was 11. Korn followed soon after, at 12. I can honestly say that is when I started to really get into music - they influenced me. Eminem too.

      Hope you have a great weekend, dear friend!
