Small Victories: Joining the Twitter Party March 25, 2009

Small Victories

OK- so I finally got it together and joined Twitter.  I had been avoiding for a variety of reasons-

#1 I am not the best at keeping up with blogging, email and FB correspondence, I just didn’t feel like I adding to my online “responsibilities”
#2 who needs more internet-based distractions?
#3 and perhaps most importantly- who needs to hand-feed stalkers by up to the minute life reports!?!

Paronoid much Ambijawn? Absolutely 😉

But for some reason today was different.  Today I was struck with the insiration to join Twitter in the most unlikely of places: In line at Philadelphia Traffic Court.

See- the scene was so thick- so rich with ridiculousness I just wondered how great it would be to describe it to my online friends.  I mean- there’s the grown man in front of me with the Super Mario PJs on- he’s in there at least once month he tells me, and assures me that DO NOT need a photocopy of my Photo ID, no matter what the sign says.  Then there was the NE Philly looking, camo wearing father and son duo, looking disappointed after shelling out $1.00 to photocopy their ID. Woman sucking their teeth at the super slow service…everyone looking Extra worried under the ultra-bright florescent lights…

you can't make this sh#t up

Did I mention there are a lot of good looking men in traffic court! (Heeeeey Shawn ;-)) It’s true- a very unexpected, yet welcome perk of traffic court.  Except well, they are in traffic court on a Tuesday morning which would be cool if they looked like they were on their was to work or something, but most of them looked like they were on their way to the “club”- fresh to def like we were shooting a video or something.   Except the Super M.  PJs guy in front of me- they wont even let you in the club w/ sneaker on nowadays– his house slippers DEFINITELY would not have made the cut!!

Not only was the scene great- but it would have been nice to give the play by play of how I brought in the $110 cash to pay the ticket if need be,  and walked out of the building with the money still in my pocket!! Victory never felt so sweet 🙂  Am I wrong for celebrating by treating myself to spring jacket from H&M??  Probably, but at least it was %50 off!

What does this have to do with Twitter?  The bottom line is this: If Badu feels comfortable tweet about the birth of her 3rd child, I suppose I can feel comfortable enough to tweet about some of life’s unheralded victories.

So here we go…
