I Seriously Did

At our rec center, the exit doors don't have handles on the outside to discourage people from coming in anywhere other than the entrance where they can "check in" or pay. But it can be really inconvenient to go all the way to the entrance only to walk clear back around by the exit doors on the way to the pool. Poor me right?

So yesterday I was feeling insolent. As I was walking up to the exit doors with SP after her swim lesson, I saw these two girls who were about 13 or 14 standing outside the doors obviously waiting for someone to open the doors so they could make a quick entrance without going all the way around.

I saw it all in my head. I was still several steps away from the doors and I was thinking to myself,
"You're going to do this, aren't you?"

Self back to self: "Yeah, I think I am."
Self again: "You can't be serious! Are you really that petty? You've totally done what those girls are doing before!"

Self back to self: "I don't care. I'm just feeling nasty today."

And I walked up to the door, opened the door ...a crack...ushered myself and SP out and left the girls just a little crack of a chance on getting in those doors.

And I hated myself as I nearly giggled. Who is this little devil I have turned into?

I can hear the giggle now. And just think, those girls probably thought you were the coolest old (30 ish) lady with a cute little girl of the day :)
