I always forget something, so the poem I brought to writing class yesterday was apropos. Forgetting. I went down to Grumpy saying the mantra of, “Shoes, towel, shoes, towel,” totally forgetting shampoo. After I used the pink stuff they give us free, I headed off to class with my head itching.
The poem was a hit. I was so surprised. I’d been thinking it was mediocre and the last line terrible. I left class so encouraged that tomorrow I will make the time to enter it in the “Writers Digest” yearly contest. I’m sorry I can’t put it here for you too. Previously published works are unwanted by places like “Writers Digest.” Started two new poems also.
Home to find G late on the road. They have kept him out there but with a reduced work load through today. I keep waiting for the bosses to tell him he’s on the road another day then another then another…..
We had some astronomically expensive, grass fed, ground beef last night. Later I’d stopped at my local market and was told not only do they grind their own, except for special promotions, but their beef has no additives. No pink slime there. The grass fed, low fat beef was almost too dry to eat though, so I’ll cheerfully go back to a higher fat meat that I can chew. Rarely do we eat meat now, but my thoughts suggest to me that you have to be able to chew what you do buy.
This morning, even with a cranky printer, G has managed to buy two seats together for the Cirque du Soleil’s “Totem.” I’ve only seen one Cirque show, tho several times, in Vegas when it was the only Cirque show in town. This one is new to us, and it’s under canvas. What a wonderful gift from the Geezer to start off another good day.
