Write, Damnit!

Life is interfering with my writing.  On the one hand, I am happy that life is interesting, but now it seems to be getting too interesting! 

I caught my son on Facebook this weekend and since I rarely see him anymore, we chatted.  Then, he dropped the bomb and asked me what I really thought about his future wife!  What a question — at a time like this — when they will be married August 25 (which is before the anniversary date of their first meeting).

What a question to ask from my one-and-only little love.  Did I answer very well — probably not.  But does it really matter because he has chosen and let’s face it:  how often do we really like our children’s choices?   (Hey, my dad didn’t like mine either, but I did get Bernie out of it).

After I finished talking with my son, I headed straight for the refrigerator… and the vino.  Alas, early Sunday morning was a  hodgepodge of emotions… and frustration because I could not get the cap off the bottle!

Here I was desperate for a little shot of wine to calm the throbbing in my head and stop my hyperventilating, and that stupid cap would not budge.  I went to the toolbox and pulled out a wrench, but it would not fit; so I scurried back to the toolbox and pulled out a bigger one.  Dang it, that one didn’t fit either!

A third trip to the toolbox resulted in me returning with a pipe wrench!  Now for you uninformed laymen,  a  pipe wrench is a b-i-g wrench used by plumbers.  They come in various sizes (this one is about 3 ft. long).  Did I get that dang cap off?  You betcha.  Did I bust that wine bottle to pieces?  No, God was on my side — I got my sip of wine; calmed down; returned the wrench to the toolbox and went to sleep.  And just think, I also got this silly story to write about too.

    Some people’s children. Naw, I’m just kidding. I’m glad you made it through the weekend. I’m sure that, despite your current apprehensions, you will learn to love your sons choice in a bride and love her as if she were your own daughter. Oh well, it sounded good in my head. Best of luck. hope to see you soon.
