Thanks Billie, as always you made me laugh. First dates? In Indiana PA. at Pizza Hut, one of those pre-dinosaur shirts that had the scoop neck and then the piece of material that buttoned across the neck like a noose. Bright yellow, thought I was a zillion bucks. (emphisis on 'thought')
Yeah, might have been for about fifteen minutes. Oh so trying to show the best of my manners, I usually stuck half the piece in my mouth already eyeing up the next one with the most cheese, instead, a small nibble on the very point at the end. Anyone who knows Pizza Hut pizzas from 30+ odd years back, remember they are not the pizza of today. they were slim, full of grease, and had a mound of cheese on them from top to bottom. One little nibble, and then I went to put the piece back on the plate to actually show my date I did know how to chew with my teeth instead of swallowing semi whole with only a few chews.....the huge gob of cheese sitting on the 'oh so innocent' piece of pizza slowly slid off and landed smack dab in the middle of my bare chest, between the scoop neckline and the dog collar part of the shirt. Remember, bright yellow..........today I don't think even a Tide stain stick could have gotten me out of that one. Alas, we were to never date again, I was doomed to be weird from the start. Now my husband buys me Tide stain sticks in three packs and places them stragically around the house and vehicles, his only comment is, 'I have watched you eat'. A few months ago I was traveling with the school band to Cedar Point, I had my overnight packed, and laying on top were just a few items I had to stash in the bag. One was a mini stain stick. He picked it up, looking at is sadly, and asked, "What are you going to do the rest of the day?" He went to the cupboard and brought out a full size one, stating I could perhaps use the 'tiny version' for a meal at home. I tried to be offended, but you know, I just couldn't. There is a reason why I have bleach products and stain removal liquids above my washer, and for the most part it is my clothes that have to be doctored. <sigh> I am a slob I guess, poster child for Tide stain stick, which they would call, I need a job to keep me busy and out of trouble!
few things, being a fellow Pennsylvanian
facebook email@example.com look for picture of my son playing a base drum and looking like a thunder cloud because I am taking his picture
other thing, email addy above if you are so inclined.
Hormones, oh, I got em, and they are cooking. Just ask my son or husband. I am telling you, giving me back the Xanax probably saved the local law enforcement from a brawl the next time my son leaves his dirty underwear in the bathroom and not far from my toothbrush. I am going to wrap my brush in a plastic bubble, only to be broken when I use it. He is most likely secretively scrubbing the toilet or bathtub with it because I made him clean the bathroom at bed time. If I taste bathroom cleaner on my toothbrush, heads are gonna roll! blood pressure! I did not have that unitl I turned 45, then slowly it creeped up like some evil being and took over my system. Mine used to be so low they would take it at least twice, asking me if I felt ok. well yea, I do, why? I didn't notice anything, today if was a bit low, but then I messed up times and when I was supposed to take it, I didnt have time for that, was looking for new carpet, eating Chinese (yep finally got to Chinese), and then home to shove some chemo pills down the gullet. if we switch up our readings a bit, mine would be higher and yours would be lower so we both win!
I am sorry for your friend, my thoughts and prayers go out to the person, and to you, someone who cares, keep that blood pressure in check so we may enjoy your company. God Bless
Everyone here has been so supportive, I happened upon this site, but holy crap, I am sure glad I did. Good, bad, or ugly, there are people here who care and are not afraid to show it, THAT is becoming a thing of the past as the generations go.
I am off to bed, I think the ambien is kicking in, or is another weird happening where I see two screeens, either way better lady down before I fall down, make lots of noise, wait for someone to rescue me, and in the end realize I am alone and everyone else just thought it was me doing who knows what in the kitchen, and they all go back to sleep!
