  •  I love starting my mornings with your stories (7+ / 0-)

    They always make me laugh out loud. Was it as funny living it as it is reading about it?

    Good morning winter!  Hugggggs

    •  Sometimes it was hysterical (9+ / 0-)

      Other times it was hysteria.  Or worse.  Suffice it to say most of that 23-yr marriage has been consigned to an amnesia so deep that when my kids tell stories I reply, "Really?  That happened?"

      The shrink I saw for a couple of years afterward told me it was okay to forget.  In fact, that kind of amnesia is beneficial.  So I have this huge gaping block of my life out of which remain only some funny stories....

      Like the time he went to swat a fly.  On the globe of a ceiling lamp.  And even as I cried, "Rob...don't..."  He swung anyway and killed the lamp.  Shattered glass everywhere while the fly continued to buzz...

      Or the time, after 18 yrs of marriage, he gave me my first Valentine's day gift: four roses.  Dead roses.  Because he left them in the closet for a week without water.

      Heheheh.  Not. ;)

      Huggs and good morning!
