I learned two things this morning. They could change my life if I follow the rules. My life could be less stressful if I only chew on a pencil.
All this time I thought I had to take a nap. Or take deep breaths. Maybe take a vacation to Disney World.
I never knew that all I had to do was take one of my stale pencils from my desk and start chewing and biting on it.
Sort of reminds me of school when I was struggling to find an answer. Or when I was nervous I would bite a pencil during testing times.
Of course I would have to give up my blogging. To have the pencil in use I would have to put down my black keyboard. Then on top of that I may become regressed. Because of my Diabetes I have nerve damage in my fingers.
I do a lot of tracking and writing for my job and Al’s Day Program. My fingers always end up numb and sore from writing in black ink only.
I don’t know, I may have to go back to the way I was doing it prior to this new information. Blogging helps heal me. Each word speaks to me and helps me sort things out. Napping is something I enjoy. It takes every clogged thought and tosses it until I wake up.
Also I am getting older and my teeth are not as strong before. Could biting on wood cause me to rot my old teeth? Would I end up having to have dentures?
The other thing I learned is in order to release stress, smile more and live a happier life, I should have more sex.
What in the world is sex? I have been divorced for six years and although there have been a couple of guys pass by I have not had anything serious to brag about. I think if what I have heard in the past with sly jokes is that I probably have spiders living among me.
So now I discover that until I have sex again I may not smile.
Should I go out and stand on the street corner in order to smile again?
Could I tell the arresting officer that I learned to smile and live a happier life by watching a TV program? Would this keep me out of jail?
Well I guess I am out of choices pretty much. I think I will just stick to who I am and be happy with myself.
I will smile because I have been given one more day to do what’s right. I will be thankful for what I have. I will keep waiting and stressing for that special man to appear before my eyes and say, ” Lordy woman, where have you been all my life?”
perhaps you will find someone at church a good man that deserves a very very good woman. I will ask the Lord to bring you such a man when the time is right for you. Can’t promise he will look like Fabio though LOL ..Love you girl.
oh thanks Len. just a nice Christian man is all I am asking for. beggars can’t be choosers. LOL
never beg just pray
yes, very true
Haha, Terry you have me laughing. Let’s see, chewing on pencils, hmmm not really healthy, Disneyworld.. too expensive, having more sex….. it might release stress at the time but only with the right man it will make you happy. Street, prison are a no no.
So basically you got it: feel gratitude for the things you have, count your blessings, thank God for every new day, enjoy the smiley moments with Al, and smile thinking of me 🙂
For stress release I would advice some deep breath and a good nap, or creating something nice in the kitchen!
And forget about this guy at the end, firstly he needs a haircut, secondly he is not sexy at all. You had better taste last time with the hunk picture.
I guess I have you smiling by now, hehe I am. 🙂
Love you loads! ♥
I am not smiling at all. I am laughing my butt off!!! LOL, I would never want Fabio. He is too into himself. I pick feel grateful, baking sweet treats for Al, and always smiling when I think of the name Ute!!!
And by all means, have a nap :-)!
I love naps, they are so refreshing to my mind!!!!!
🙂 This was good for a smile today, great post Terry. Funny what the world tells us we need in order to be happy, right? Sheesh. Have an awesome weekend.
you too Brian, the world doesn’t know us as well as we know ourselves, right?? right! enjoy your family!
Do what you gotta do… including chewing pencils.
Have a blessed weekend as well Terry.
I think I will stick with baking and caring for my brother. I can’t help but hope that God will provide me a companion some day though
Gnawing on pencils is not the healthiest of activities, nowhere near as harmful as they used to be though. Lead poisoning used to be a common ailment among school kids. I love the humour, Terry! Keep smiling, and talking to the man upstairs.
God Bless you both.
glad I produced some laughter my friend. Hope your week went well. I will let you know when the card arrives and don’t feel bad about it being returned
It has been a frustrating week. The Bakery I worked at laid 5 of us off, a while back, I found out this week that they have no intention of reinstating any of us any time soon. So, now that blueberry season is over, I’ve been pounding the pavement looking for work! No luck yet:(
Thank you for forgiving my absent-minded bumbling:)
I will pray for you Cliff that God matches you to a job very soon. Maybe you could put an ad in the paper and be a caregiver like me? They make good money and you don’t have to go to school for it either
