I have had so many things to blog about that I think my brain got all tangled. And as I have mentioned time has been an issue. But thanks to my beautiful wife, my brain is now mobile and I can write from anywhere. This post may look a little like swiss cheese when I'm done but I gotta get this stuff out of my head so that I move on to other post. (an boy do I have doosy coming)
There have been a lot of blogs lately discussing weight loss. I started to write about it myself but I don't think there was any intersesting except: For the first time in my life I am having trouble with my weight. It was no more evident then when I donned my first "A-shirt" aka "wife beater." OY! This tighty whitey exposed every roll, dimple, crease and roundness. Wow! I knew it was bad but that was eye-opening, jaw dropping and ego busting.
Re: Somebody Hit the Pause Button It looks like I'm not only one missing this time. For about the past 2 weeks, when I'm home, Gracie has been attached to me like gum to a shoe. While I eat it up, it also can get annoying. Everyone needs their "time" but she has me wrapped around her little finger. Between her and her momma, I have no chance. (and I love it)
"You could pass." (for being black) I was told this again the other day. I just laughed. I am me. Good, bad, black, white, I am just me. Since I have been in Louisiana, most of my good friends have been black. I only mention this because the other day someone in my vicinity used the n-word. I left that vicinity. Later, I was mad because I didn't say anything. I didn't know the person but that won't matter anymore. For now on, I'm calling anyone who uses that word or any word like it out. I'm done with racist assholes.
I turned 39 last week, I guess the countdown to 40 begins. Anyway, I have eaten a lot of new things during my 2 years down here, but the Lemon Dobosch cake is a revelation. I only wish I had the words to describe its yumminess to y'all.
