Riley Addison

This is little Riley Addison, who was born at 1:40 this afternoon. She weighed in at a bit over 18 pounds and is 30 inches long. Her mom is a real trooper. Okay, she weighs 6 pounds, nine ounces and is the usual height, 20 inches or so. Mom and baby are doing well. Big brother Aiden is very excited to have a sister, as are we to have a new granddaughter. She doesn't know it yet, but she hit the lotto grandfather-wise. I don't know why I attract more than the usual amount of grief from idiots, but I do. Take for example the young woman that I waited on right before closing today. She was in the electrical aisle looking for outlet covers. She couldn't find them because I had carefully hidden them in plain sight, right in front of her. I pointed them out to her and maybe that is where I made "her list". Then, I made a huge mistake, I called her ma'am. I said, "Thanks for your business, ma'am." She said, "It's not ma'am, it's miss, how old do you think I am?" and not in a friendly sort of way. The reply that jumped to the front of my brain was, "I'm trying to figure out whether you age is higher than your IQ." What I said was, "Sorry." Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

I like being called Mam. I think it shows respect.

Congrats, Merle! She's adorable! (To show that I know nothing about babies, I read right over that 18-lb. remark...)

Re. the idiot, I think you should have gone with your first impulse. :)
