Get out the machete! – Like many other women, I’m not as good at shaving my legs during the winter. No it’s not laziness, it’s for warmth. Then spring breaks (sort of). You get in line at one of the places that shear sheep and get a professional job done. You manicure your toes so you look sexy in your peep toe shoes and a bitter cold front moves in. And hangs around for far too long! Boogers!
It happens every year – The reason for the colder than normal weather is that Starbucks came out with their fabulous S’mores Frappuccino. It’s one of the two I like. Most of their specialty drinks are waaayyy too sweet but there is something about S’mores. They only offer it from May (when it’s cold) until the end of July (during the perfect weather for S’mores). Then they come out with pumpkin everything and Christmas trinkets. That and I took off my flannel sheets. That does it every time too.
A sign of the times – We have a local amusement park that is pretty nice. It’s a small Disney World. This year they are adding metal detectors at the entrance. How sad is that?
You know you are getting older – When you tell your friend that you’d prefer a nice coffee to a frou-frou alcoholic drink. I want to say getting old stinks but I really like a nice mocha latte.
What everyone is talking about – There have been a few postings about regrets people have at the end of their life. I had dinner with some friends a few weeks ago. One, at age 72, has had some major health issues including two different kinds of cancer. He is very open about death. When it happens, he’s cool with it. He has had a good life. He’s done what he wants and routinely tells people he loves them. He doesn’t need to see another sunrise or reconnect with someone he eliminated from his life ages ago. What about you? Would you have regrets?
So how was your week?
