First: This is not a new diet. No secret is included. All I’m doing is reporting what one woman decided to do and did based on her work to get a big more in charge her EMOTIONAL GUIDANCE SYSTEM. Remember, no frowns or self-beatings. This is where your unconditional friend presides. And you are okay, so smile.
This woman, I’ll call her M, lived alone and had a limited social life. She was forty-six and had been divorced almost twenty-years. M worked at a good state job and enjoyed quiet evenings with her own company reading and watching favorite shows. She also enjoyed More >
From “Doubt:” A woman was talking to a friend saying something unflattering about a man she did not know well. That night she had a dream in which a large hand hovered over her, the index finger pointing down to her head. The next day she goes to Confession and asks the priest: “Father is gossip a sin?”
The priest instructed the woman: “Go home and tomorrow morning take a pillow up to your roof and stab it open with a sharp knife. Then come back to see me.”
AND THEN . . . manana. It’s big and it’s about More >
Dateline: Kitchen in the real America. Recent high school graduate charges in to room. Kid excitedly tells well-preserved seemingly adult parents: “Yea! I got accepted at Polytech!” Good news, you think, (like there’s a polytech and an Emerald City). Now, what do you think the parents do as kid dashes out to make his big announcement to his friends? Of course, the attractive Mom grasps super-attractive Dad’s hand and says, “Oh, honey, how will we afford to pay for this?” Dad, apparently growing up under a rock, comes up with More >

The Fetteccinne Incident, a move made thousands of times a day. I’m working at a hotel and it’s four in the afternoon. More >
On this journey struggling to be just a little bit more toward the center of the wildebeest herd (See Crouton Lady post), I’m pleased to say that while waiting for a flight which was two hours late in arriving at DFW where I was to pick it up–then another hour and a half late because of a terrorist alert which closed off that plane’s arrival gate, then after the flight attendants walked off saying, “Oh, no, there’s supposed to be another crew for this leg to Austin–and waiting another hour for the flight attendants–
I did not get arrested. I behaved and thus did More >
Yep. The very thought is beyond ridiculous if I’m talking about what someone else would think. I’m not sure I could talk a salesperson into letting me try on, much less purchase a string bikini. I chose the string bikini statement because someone who loves me very much just the way I am said that once spying a string bikini on a store manikin. He couldn’t have been more wrong. And I’m not being coy. I would look ridiculous in a string bikini, More >
“The BowFlex has given me more than new strength, it’s given me a new LIFE. Nutrisystem has given me more than a new body, it’s given me a new LIFE. This xx allery medication has given me more than clear breath, it’s given me LIFE.”
We can’t. Think about it. If it really worked, WOULD EVERY SINGLE, NOT MISSING ONE, ALL so-called women’s magazines HAVE A NEW DIET ON THE COVER EVERY MONTH?
These “articles” and info-mercials are dead ends. I do admit More >
