A Million Reasons

  • Not to watch the news
  • To despise fascism in all its TrumpMussoliniHitler transmogrifications
  • Not to be scared of most spiders
  • To love my husband
  • To wear clean underwear cause you never know
  • To vote
  • To love cats and dogs
  • To be thankful that women don’t wear girdles or half slips anymore
  • To love bees, because without them we could starve
  • To watch The Walking  Dead (I know)
  • To adore toddlers, with their beer bellies and saggy diapers and kissable bare feet
  • To love my Jennifer, daughter of the heart
  • To look at old family photos looking for clues about who I am and why
  • To fear flying
  • To love Lifeboat, The Bishop’s Wife, Casablanca and Groundhog Day
  • To remember how funny John Candy was
  • For being funny to hide the pain
  • To make my husband laugh
  • To make lists every once in awhile
  • To mourn
  • Not to resent my pacemaker/defibrillator or replaced knees
  • image.jpeg To say fuck whever I like, and to be snarky, sarcastic or sweet in turn, because I’m not going quietly.

That is all.  We now return to our regular programming.

  1. The “F” bomb has come with stress! Much much more often as I get older! But if you don’t watch news, I suppose you read news? How can you decide to vote! Last, but not least…..I’m glad you’ve decided to NOT GO QUIETLY!!!!!
