Icky but goody.

Think of something that truly repulses you. Hold that thought until your skin squirms. Now, write a glowing puff piece about its amazing merits.

Oh my dear pumpkin pie, why must you be Nonna’s favorite thing to make at Thanksgiving? Your brownish, yellowish, orangish, rustish, softish, ickyish look just does not appeal to my eyes; and we all know that we eat with our eyes first. You merely make that possible, almost impossible really,  even just the thought. But I have also been taught not to judge from the outside but also one’s content of character. I spray a dash of whipped cream on top of you, and I reluctantly take a bite… then magic. My nonna made you, and for that you can never be icky.

Icky but goody.

When was the last time you were ready to throw in the proverbial towel? Did you end up letting go, or decided to fight on anyway?

Enough is enough when enough is enough. In a relationship, when the smallest doubt starts to creep in, it is time to move on. Why not stay and try to mend? It takes two, I can only be sure of my own efforts. If I doubt that she is not putting in the same efforts, I pick up my head and gracefully move on. No hard feelings, we will both continue to live.
