True, embellished and fictional stories for your amusertainment

Moments In Time

This week has been filled with moments – those that make an impression, are memorable. Three stood out.

First, I was talking to Stephen about staying positive once you’ve reached an age where more of life is behind you than ahead.

Living in the present is one option. Another is to look forward to what comes next – something I thought was an epiphany that could change the world.

Stephen astutely pointed out that religion’s had this market cornered for centuries. Dang!

The second moment occurred in my exercise class relating to a promotion allowing members to bring a guest for free.

Our instructor encouraged us to bring a friend or boyfriend. I jokingly said that I’d bring my boyfriend if she promised not to tell my husband. The next day, a fellow student asked me if I really had a boyfriend and a husband.

I learned you have to be careful what you say. If I start hearing rumors about me, I’ll only have myself to blame.

Finally, later in the week as Stephen was leaving for work, I ran out to get the newspaper. As I turned to come back to the house, Stephen was waiting for me with open arms. I ran to him and was rewarded with a bear hug.

Then I realized I should have run in slow motion. So I ran back to the curb and repeated my actions in slo-mo. I’m sure our neighbors got a good laugh, we sure did.

These moments just happened but we also have the opportunity to create moments of our own. I know just what to do.

I’ll bring Stephen to my exercise class and tell everyone that he’s my boyfriend.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,



Stephen in slo-mo

    Yes, yes, yes, do that!!! After all, he is your boyfriend too!

    He is my frother and I am happy because of it!

  2. I think taking your “boyfriend” – Stephen, sounds like a perfect idea! I suppose confusion is related to moving into the future ….. keeps you in the know!

  3. If you stay in a confused state, newspaper stories of dread and doom will not upset you as much as it does others.

I love it when you comment - it makes my day!
