1) stubs needs to learn proper etiquette with regard to watching soccer when our teams are playing each other. this is horribly evident when it’s my team that loses, compounded by the fact that there is NO reason that my team should have lost to his…GO GUNNERS!
2) emptying the dishwasher can be a two person job. loading the dishwasher is not.
3)people may stop talking in front of me for fear that i will use their stories and not protect their identities. have no fear friends, i keep the really good stories in my private. make of that what you will.
4) my dad is my advocate. he probably always was, but it’s only in the last couple of years that he had been willing to let me know that.
5)Dushie has another person living inside her. sometimes, when she least expects it, that person speaks for her. she’ll spend the next couple of days apologizing for her strange reaction. my only answer will be to giggle.
6) we will miss the buddy at our thanksgiving table.
7)if you don’t get around to reading the times until the next week…it’s just old news
8) for some people, leaving high school, and the perceived glory days, could be a set-up for some hard living. my glory days are yet to come.
9) this town is too small to talk shit….so i guess i better watch my back…it gives me a whole new respect for kathy griffin…course she lives in a bigger town…
10) i will now start using the phrase, “we don’t do that because we’re catholic.” not because it’s true, but because it makes me laugh.
and one more to grown on:
it’s brave to acknowledge that i scare people, or so i’ve been told. i didn’t realize that acknowledging the truth is brave. while i appreciate the compliment, i don’t feel brave. at least not when it comes to people’s reaction to me. i guess it doesn’t seem that brave when i know that they are wrong. i’m not scary. intense, maybe. a whirling dervish, decidedly. but, all the while i can’t control how people respond to me, so it’s never been anything that concerned me.E
