So I’ve been getting my period for a while now, if I just lost all my male readers with that statement, let me follow up with… “Oh Calm Down Guys! It’s a thing, it happens, get over it!… MY LOINS BRING LIFE!!!!”.
phew okay, got that out of the way… where was I?
Right, periods. Well for the number of years I’ve been having the visit by Aunt Flo it still impresses me that I’m pretty much never prepared for her. Which happened today when I realize I was riding the red tide without a cotton surfboard to be found.
So after checking with my other work ladies and finding they were surfboardless, I grabbed my purse and headed for the bathroom for the old timey tampon machine. Once there, after much digging through my purse, I realized I did not have a quarter… but I did find something else, that ended up working even better.
WHAT!?!? Like you don’t have a lock pick in your purse?? Now who’s not prepared????
I also left the machine unlocked for any other ladies experiencing a Code Red without a quarter… SUPER HERO!!!
You are my ‘lady business’ Superhero!
Well now I want a cape with that on it!!
Sometimes you just have to be innovative (Who’s really going to complain? HA HA)
Waiting for sunset on Christmas Eve is like standing toes-over-the-edge on a high diving board.
Every year we’d cruise casually by the window to keep an eye on the sun’s progress until it was officially evening.
Then the shout “Christmas Eve Gift!” would ring out.
You see, the traditions says that the first person to voice that phrase on Christmas Eve to another would be graced with good fortune and joy all the next year.
(And of course, whomever was first won. Everything was a contest…)
It’s more difficult to be first now with caller ID.
As all those who have become my friends in blogland are spread widely across time zones, I’d like to wish you all “Christmas Eve Gift” now.
And as I already feel so fortunate to have such wonderful readers and writers in this neighborhood, I wish to share any phrase acquired good fortune and joy with you in thanks.
No matter where you are or what you are guided by, hope you have a very merry Christmas and a new year full of adventure and joy.
Peace on earth and goodwill towards all creatures great and small.
May you find miles of smiles, intriguing wanderings, and lots of wonder in the New Year! Cheers and onward with spirit, courage, and hope….and laughter – much much laughter!
