Two for tea, and tears for two

I was perfectly fine when I was wondering what movie was shot there. A visit to Towson Mall today sparked a memory of our last visit there. You would have known the answer. And it hit me like a punch to the gut. The Tea store is still there. The memories flooded back all at once. It was after our visit to Ikea.we stopped here and got a few things for the girls and you bought me that tin of Vanilla Rubio tea that I finished the day before you died. You said we could come back and get some … Continue reading Two for tea, and tears for two

Had you asked earlier…

I would have told you that the next person that I was going to date/fall head over heels for, was going to be a cellist.  Yes, there is always room for cello in my life.  Especially when Luka Sulic, (Do not have an Eastern European keyboard.) cellist with the hot Pop/Classical Duo 2Cellos was in the running.    Yes, he is tragically straight.  And since Ricky Martin isn’t coming to his senses, I needed another one to focus my adulations upon. Then my Instagram feed refreshed. I have always been a fan of Ryan Philippe.  I have done okay following his … Continue reading Had you asked earlier…

You shouldn’t have left your toes out there…

Too many folks that I interact with leave things anywhere and everywhere.  Very few pick up after themselves.  This includes personal items, items required to do their job.  And what is left lying around the most.  Toes, those little things that are always getting stepped on.  My gawd I cannot believe this. I work in dining services for a small state college near my home.  We are catering an event that is going to be an intimate dinner for an university official and five additional guests.  (With me so far, the count is 6.)  Well, I come into the office … Continue reading You shouldn’t have left your toes out there…

We have all been there…

And now for something completely different; I have fallen in love with someone and they don’t know it.  He has just a little bit of a swagger about him, and it has been a long time coming.  And I think that no one deserves it more.  He’s got that fifteen inches just swinging. I met him a few months ago.  And by a few months ago I mean about three years ago as he was struggling to right his world after it capsized.  There was a time there before we met that he roamed a bit lost and unsure of … Continue reading We have all been there…

tick-tock, tick-tock…

Three years, three hundred sixty-four days, twenty-three hours, forty minutes, but seriously who’s counting. Dear Jon; Oh boy, do I ever miss you. First I want to start off saying that I want to thank you for the time you shared with me.  Thank you for the life we had. I am not sure that I want to wish for those days or memories again if it means that I’d still loose you and still have to go through the things that I have by myself…  But then again, to have you take my hand and stroke my thumb raw … Continue reading tick-tock, tick-tock…

I wasn’t going to go there…

Something calls to me.  Something inside.  Beckoning me, pulling at the very strings of my fiber.  A year now, there has been this dance.  This, I’m going to stand here and see what you do. Now, after you’ve done that, here I am, what now? The lad is intoxicating. With the Sonic hair and the “Coke” bottle glasses.  A deep infectious laugh that beats on one’s soul to join him.  The conversations quite often get lost in translation.  A lot of things are still hidden away.  The dance continues.  There you are, but I’m going to stand here… He likes … Continue reading I wasn’t going to go there…

Blame it on Shepherdstown…

Well, as infrequently as I post one would wonder if I still existed.  I do, and I shall.  It appears that I have plenty of time, maybe 15-20 years according to my doctor.  When She gave me my last bill of health she was ecstatic and proud of my accomplishments regarding the weight loss, control of my diabetes and high blood pressure.  (Where upon hearing the praise I asked, “Got a cigarette?”) I love the movie “Blame it on Rio” Michael Cain, Demi Moore trudge through a May/September relationship and I have found myself debating some of the same issues. … Continue reading Blame it on Shepherdstown…
