Musings and Amusings

Saved By the Bell

image

I was taking a “feel good” walk through Barnes & Noble last week, and bought this for Parker. She’s had some “sky is falling” moments the last few weeks, and the end isn’t in sight yet. This should help.

As I was driving home from the bookstore, the bag with the Panic Button and other items was lying on the floor of the car. When I turned a corner, the bag would jiggle and the bell would make a very faint “ding“.

Every time it dinged, I got one more visual of Parker pressing the button …

She’s a mom and wife … Ding

She’s a teacher – prepubescent 4th graders … Ding

The whole family has been sick with flu, strep throat, bronchitis … Ding

Sparks is asking questions about S-E-X … Ding-g

Raquellia needs a ride to Glee Club & gymnastics, and wants a gold fish to go with the guinea pig and dog … Ding-g

They’ve put their house on the market … Ding-g-g

Right before the garage door stopped working … Ding-g-g

They’re buying a house-under-construction … Ding-g-g

Parker is peri-menopausal … DING-G-G

As soon as I turned that last corner I pulled over to the curb, called Barnes & Noble, and ordered Parker a case of Panic Buttons.

  1. Lol and DING! I have a suggestion about peri-menopause if you don’t mind…..I recently found a website called menopausechitchat.com that’s saved my sanity on several occassions, so long as you just pop on every now and then. If you stay on it for too long it can be a bit scary, but for general reassurance it’s a God send 😉

What oft was thought

"True wit is Nature to advantage dress'd, What oft was thought but ne'er so well express'd," wrote Alexander Pope ("Essay on Criticism"). I confess to taking Pope's line out of context, in that the purpose of this blog is to express thoughts, observations, ideas, musings.
