I’m driving up with Julie.
I haven’t been there for a long time because 1.I almost never leave my house and 2. There are snakes there.
(#2 is just an excuse. Not one snake has said a word to me and I’m getting crazier and crazier about leaving my apartment.)
Debby is not coming because she gets car sick and she would try to kill my sister’s dogs.
I am therefore paying someone she loves to stay at my house while I’m away.
Now here’s something kind of interesting. One of my sister’s friends who reads my blog wants to meet me.
THIS I CAN NOT ALLOW TO HAPPEN.
It can only end in disappointment
There are quite a few reasons for this.
Firstly any pictures of myself on social media, facebook, Twitter before I cancelled it etc were taken in the late 80’s.
So that’s gonna be a shock.
Also I have a terrible personality.
Oh I can write up a storm and sound like I’m a laugh a minute but in the flesh….nope.
I have no ability for small talk or even large talk.
If I see a gap in conversation I’m liable to just try to fill it with something nutty.
An example of this was many years ago my then husband and I were at a party and he introduced me to the wife of his favorite music teacher.
She smiled and said “David spent so many happy evenings at our house when he was in college”
Now what would you say to that?
“Oh how nice”? or “That must have been fun”?
Not “I hope he didn’t steal anything”
Man the look on her face.
“Oh no no of course he didn’t” and then she sidled away.
If you ask me why I said that I have no answer. It just flew out of my mouth.
Sometimes I’ll do something that I think is funny but isn’t to anyone else.
Like when I was saying good bye to the assistant to the conductor of the Boston Symphony who had played an arrangement of a John Lennon tune that my husband had written after John’s death.
I put a dollar in her hand and said “Tell the Maestro we really enjoyed it.”
No one thought that was funny.
Anyway I think I’ll let my sister’s friend just think of me as that 30 year old with a quick wit.
And now for your enjoyment…
So nice to see a post from you Mattie. And I’ve missed Debby like crazy! 🐾💜
she’ll be thrilled to hear that xxm
You are funny and thoughtful, your sister’s friend will adore you. She has probably read your blog from beginning to the latest post!
….and Debbie, how about those beautiful eyes?
Gretchen keep posting your beautiful paintings. I love them
Keep posting your beautiful paintings. I love them
I was upset not seeing you for such a long time and that you disappeared on TT. Thanks for the post and for sweet Debby. Love yr sense of humor.
I wish you all the best!
That makes me so happy. I’ll try to write more if only something interesting would happen to me.
