Are you familiar with the word? Definition – Gad zooks: an exclamation of surprise or annoyance
I don’t know how/why it popped into my head this morning, so I decided to write my post based on it. And actually it fits because the older kid asked me the other night if his gf could sleepover this Saturday night. Gad zooks! I told him I’d give him my decision the next day because it was after midnight when he interrupted me watching mindless TV before bed. Because seriously, a sleepover during quarantine? I guess I should be grateful that he asked, but he knows better than to spring it on me without warning.
I waited all day for him to ask me again the next day, but he never did. Then he told me that she’s coming today to visit, but just for the day. Whew. Although honestly, I don’t want anyone in my house. I know it’s probably fine, but still. We’re in the middle of a pandemic and who knows who she and her family have been in contact with! She’s already had her nails done, her hair done and blah blah blah. I guess I should be happy that she’s working, but then again, she’s working in a hospital and potentially bringing her germs into my house. Sorry for the rant.
I’m proud of her job and of her, but this is my safe home. I am careful here. While maybe there’s nothing to worry about, I don’t need any extra aggravation in my life right now. At least I’m saved from her wanting to sleep over because she doesn’t want to drive back to her parents’ house after dinner.
Big eye roll…rant over. Thanks for reading. GAD ZOOKS! LOL
