This is going to be a short write today. Got a lot going on, but I had to write something in hopes of hitting my goal of 10,000 page views before October’s end.
My letter today is the Infamous “I”. Have you ever tried to think of three sad words and three happy words for each letter of the alphabet? It’s not as easy as it sounds. Here’s what I came up with today.
First, let’s go with Idiot. That is an ugly word. I never allowed my children to call anyone an Idiot. I try very hard to never call anyone an Idiot, either, but I have to admit, when I get cut off in traffic, that is the word that usually escapes my lips. Sorry!
Second, I’ll go with income tax. Ugh! A necessary evil, I guess! The more they take out of your check, the more you gripe……then comes April and you whine, why didn’t they take more so I would be getting a refund instead of owing even more!
Last of all, but definitely the worst is Incest. A sickening word especially when it involves a person below the statutory age of consent. Unfortunately, I think this happens much more than anybody realizes, destroying young lives.
Onto happy words, funny how many of my happy words involve the sense of taste! Icing, ummm, I do love icing. I can remember standing in wait to get those beaters when my mom was making cake icing, and in this modern day and age, I’m not above opening up a can of Pillsbury Creme Cheese Frosting and eating a big spoonful.
Then there’s Icicles, real ones. Did you ever lick one? They are sooo smooth. I wish someone could invent an ice cube that was that smooth.
And of course, there is everyone’s favorite, Ice cream! A creamy cone of vanilla soft serve, or a couple of scoops of pralines n cream on a waffle cone! I’ll even settle for my Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches. Once I read that eating dairy actually helps get rid of belly fat! Well, I really did read that. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Later, friends. My refrigerator is calling!
