What a beautiful day! It was warm enough to go out but not warm enough to get in the pool. The water was down to 72°(from 84°) and that's not nearly warm enough for me. There were some in the pool though.
I was thinking. I know, too much fish oil again but still...
I am an "only" child and when I was little I had an imaginary friend. Her name was (is) Martha-rina. She got into mischief sometimes as in "oh look what Martha-rina did!" when something went wrong. I quickly learned that this brought laughs instead of frowns like the time I dropped a carton of eggs on the floor. Children can be quite manipulative. So can adults.
The duck calls this behavior "dope fiending". That's a good word for it actually. Like I wanted him to take me to see Andre' Bocelli on Feb. 14th and I bribed him with another concert if he didn't like it.
Should I have done this? Probably not. The thing is I wanted to go and he didn't. I didn't want to drive that far at night. The only other person that I knew that would like to go is someone that I don't like to ride with. I like this person but the driving? No way.
(Now as an aside here and in the spirit of full disclosure there is someone else that offered to go with me but it is a married person and his wife suggested that he take me. I cannot do this. Especially on Valentine's Day but any day really. He is a great guy and his wife is a doll but still... married is married and I don't do that. This was the true offer of a friend though and I love that they did this.)
Anyway I did get my way and the duck has agreed to take me. I feel guilty about it but I am hopeful that I open his eyes and mind to this great music that I love so much so that he, too, can enjoy it like I do. I mean we both love a good piano bar right? So we must like the same things somewhere out there.
So I won $36.00 at poker last night. I think that's the same that I won last week too. We played a higher stakes game too, not 1/2 but 2/2. It was a better game but some didn't want to play it regularly so we decided to play it once a month. I liked it.
That's about all that's in my brain today y'all. Hope your Wednesday is as good as mine, if it is you are a lucky duck!
