Do you have a budget? I have never had a budget. I don’t know from budgets. I don’t want a budget. But I find myself being cornered into making one – whip and chair in hand. We call this – Wake-Up Call: The Advanced Course. I will be leaving my day job within a few months. I have seen the wagons circling for quite a while, but it is a different ball of wax when everyone parks it and hops down for a chat.
Let’s face it – we ALL know we are there when things go wrong. Did you ever notice that you are always there when things go right? Every good thing? It’s because you stuck your neck out. Grand gestures. Teeny tiny ways. Things you did that you don’t even notice. Well, notice! Give yourself some credit, pal.
The Everything Drawer – You know you have one. Everybody has one. Right NEXT to the silverware drawer OR the gadget drawer where you keep the wine opener and the candle stubs and the used corks. Call it what you want – it is still the Everything Drawer.
Men are always in their prime. For men, Prime is not an adjective, it is a location, and they are always in it: young, old, dead. But a woman only has a little bit of time to be in her prime. Before she stops being a juicy specimen waiting to be plucked. Before she becomes something to be discarded.
Since making a few donations I have been inundated with requests for more money. It is as if the sluice gates of the gift giving world were thrown open and aimed at me…. This is just plain cheesy. What if a bartender did that? “Thanks for the tip and I’m right here in case you want to up it.” I don’t think so.
