Wanna Buy A Duck, penned by the incredible Manzanita, is always one of my favorite reads. Even though she rarely talks about it on her blog, Manzi has done more Living than most of us will ever experience. I get *the best* comments from her.. She tends to not talk about all of the events that turned her into the woman she is today. Experience shapes our lives and thinking, no? Well, Manzi owns experience. Just some interesting tidbits she has shared here in my comments: There was a time she paid her bills by gambling in the casinos because money was tight. She was married to a man who owned a baseball team. Fidel Castro wanted to be a pitcher playing pro ball. He tried out for the team, but her husband said "no." He returned to Cuba and the rest is history. The only time she has ever seen a doctor was for the birth of her children, because her husband wanted that. She is also one of the healthiest people I've ever "met." Wonder if those two things are related???? Enough yakking by me...
Cue the traveling music:
I should listen by Manzanita
|Costco Shoppers in a Row. Pick your partner and Dosey Doe|
I kept running into these two old cowboys and my mind likes to make up stories about strangers. I imagined them living on a ranch in White Sulphur Springs and could see them putting away their groceries.
I was mainly in Costco to purchase a salad spinner that I was drawn to the week before.
At that time, I stood in front of a salad spinners display and fought an urge to buy a spinner. A silly thought, I have a spinner . That evening as I was spinning greens, my spinner cracked and spewed out pieces of plastic. Finish salad spinner. Dang, why didn't I buy that one. Things like that frequently happen to me.
I got in the check-out line and there were the 2 cowboys. I said to them, "Getting ready for the long drive home?" One answered, " Yeah, we live in White Sulphur Springs."
Do you also run into arguments with your intuition and later wish you had listened.
Yeah, I do, and I am sure that I wrote a comment more lengthy than this post in her comments section. Ha! Is your intuition telling you that you should click over and read Manzanita's blog? Yep, that's what I thought....
