Just a bite!
Marylin Monroe shopping, fans in the 1950's following her around.
Okay, it's today:
Can you just take a bite? I mean if you see something you think you would like, can you just have a taste and STOP?
Sherry has the most will power of anyone I know. She can take a bite of something I have ordered, and be satisfied. I always say, “Honey I will order you one!” No, is always her answer.
We had friends in GITMO, I once heard the wife tell Sherry one night, “Sherry you can take a ½ gallon of Ice cream out of the refer and take a bite or a small cup, I can’t. I have eaten the whole half gallon and didn’t mean to.” I am actually more along that line. LOL
Neither Sherry nor I are really over weight. I am about 157. She stays around the 136 range. We both tell each other: I want to lose about 5-10 pounds and I will be happy. (we sorta lie) I say to my ownself, “YOU LIE! You don’t want to, or you would!” Probably true.
I also tell myself I am going to bed before midnight, but I am usually up until 1:30 the latest 3 AM. I then read for 15-20 minutes. The light is usually still on when I go to bed, Sherry is sleep reading. Most times she will stir when I go to bed and I get a kiss, and she will start reading again.
My girl can set a schedule and stick with it. Tonight she is brewing some ‘sleepy time tea.” She started this a few days ago. I don’t mind, I like tea. Not as much as coffee, but I understand TEA is good for you (For what? Right now I have no idea, but I will drink it). AND besides she just read off the carton to me, ‘this tea has been cherished since the days of the ancient Egyptians as an antidote to life’s complications!'
Now I feel much better. If 'em Pharoah's liked it, it must be good! I added some local honey. This is great!
Life is great. I cannot think of anyone in the entire world I would rather grow old with than my Sherry. I hope she feels the same (she tells me she does), since she very ‘seldom lies,’ I believe her!
Tomorrow imma try to write about something worth reading. Maybe I will talk about the full moon, or like the one tonight that I have referred to as: a moon that 'is holding water’.
PS: Little known facts about the USA, from Cousin Tony: The inventor of the Ouija board lived and died in Baltimore; his tombstone stands as a reflection of his achievement.
Since I do not remember ever seeing a Ouija board, I had to find that tombstone.
Elijah Bond’s name is on the reverse side.
