Day 6 #Happiness

Because they don’t make a “Little Miss Acerbic”

This Little Miss character started out as somewhat of a joke. You see, for those of you who don’t know me in person, I’m what you would call a Handful.

I’m loud, feisty, opinionated, klutzy, competitive, driven, type capital A, and I can, in certain situations, lack patience. And tact.

Because I’m a gregarious dork, I talk with anyone and everyone. I have been known to drop bags of grapes in the grocery check out line and then yell the F-bomb without even realizing I’ve done it, to the horror of everyone around me. I have excused myself, gone to the Ladies Room and climbed out the window to get away from a bad first date. I swear like a truck driving pirate and I once told an ex that I wouldn’t date him again as an adult because I remembered him from High School and his penis, while adequately sized for someone who didn’t know any better then, simply wouldn’t do now.

I think all of this makes me rather an interesting person to hang around with, but for some reason people tell me they are a wee bit afraid of me.

The weak ones do anyway ; )

So, I acquired the nickname of Little Miss Sunshine from one of my bosses, on a day when I was in a particularly bad mood.

Gradually along the way, I accumulated some LMS stuff…someone gave me an old, grubby action figure of her they picked up at a yard sale, I found a t-shirt at Target that had her on it…which I actually love and often wear – thus earning me the nickname from my boyfriend even – though hopefully not in a sarcastic way, I buy stickers of her now whenever I can find them and put them in my new yellow Filofax…you get the idea.

It’s become a thing.

Well, today the same boss who originally started snarkily referring to me as Little Miss Sunshine the day I was having a bitch-fest at work, gave me the mug in the photo at the top of this post.

Why does this quality as today’s #Happiness item you ask?

Because, as he handed it to me, he said: ” You’ve earned this…because now you finally really are.”

Awwwww : )

    I’m ashamed to say I have a different mug in the same range: Mr Grumpy.
