Missed Connection

Her penny red hair stood out almost as vivid as her bright green eyes.

She was in line for the telephone booth when a young man bumped into her.

“So sorry, miss, my feet are both pointed left.”

Chuckling, she nodded and proceeded to wait.

“Mind if I ask you why such a fine specimen is waiting in a line?”

Grimacing, she looked him straight in the eye, “I am hardly a specimen as in an experiment or lab, but a woman seeking a job, just like many other of us, and, by the way, I need to make my connection, now.”

Hey April! May is here ALREADY! Phew…April just flew by! It’s Already May 7th and time for TTOT!

  1. We get to see mama this weekend. It’s been tooooooo long.
  2. Silver Linings – The proof arrived and boy, oh boy am I glad I got a proof copy. I have some serious pudding to stir from this proof. “Did I do that…?” Yes, I did. If you are ever planning to publish, always get a proof copy before you send your child into the world. I am grateful it arrived sooner than I was informed and I have it all marked up to make changes today.
  3. I am going to be grateful it is raining as April was kinda light on the juice. And I am grateful my family in Alabama escaped unscatched, maybe a tree and neighbor’s fence got toppled, but people did not.
  4. that’s 2 up there
  5. people who support life’s adventures
  6. immunizations DONE
  7. Nurses – that’s this week on the 12th, but I believe the whole month is most accurate for these fine folks who put it all out there to help us.

8. Help with pain. The treatments I had over a year ago have passed their limit and I started a new round and I am grateful that the first treatment has provided such relief.

9. Fun! I wrote this story and thought I would share. It’s fun to try a little humor out.

Goodbye April

Goodbye April

goodbye April days
which melt to April nights
when my muse would
tickle my toes
at 4 a.m.
psst, I have a poem
the flood would hit
wake up or not
it was a tidal wave
some days I’d ride
some days I’d sleep
most days my muse
would smile
this last day
she let me sleep
thank you, Chloe
goodbye April days
May comes with
new poems
I am sure
