One-Liner Wednesday: He Kissed Her and Went to Hide the Head

A new head

“So what do you want for your birthday?” He hoped to cheer her up and distract her from the migraine.

She closed her eyes. “I just want a new head.”

A week later, on her birthday, he got Betty a new head.

“Oh Jim. That’s ugly! That’s what you got me for my birthday?!”

“You said you wanted a new head. Look, it glows in the dark!” He turned off the light and held the thing up.

“Eeew! That’s not not funny,” she said laughing. “My headache’s gone now. Don’t bring it back.” She turned the light back on and noticed he was hiding something behind his back. “What did you really get me for my birthday?”

“I got you what you asked for, a new head.” Then he grinned. “And this.” He brought his other hand around revealing the¬†Whitman’s Sampler.

 

“That’s more like it.” She snatched the box.

“You gonna share?”

“Only if you get rid of that head.”

“Aw, come on. We can save it for Halloween.”

“Alright, but put it away where I won’t see it. I like my head better.”

“Yeah. Me, too.” He kissed her and went to hide the head.

….

I meant to make this a simple one-liner, but it turned into a story about my parents. It’s true that my mom said she wanted a new head when she had a migraine and that dad bought her a new one. I remember it hanging in his garage years ago and found it recently going through his stuff.

One-Liner Wednesday: Don’t Blow!

 

one-liner-wednesday-badge-2018-19

Warning: this could get messy.

I’m late for One-Liner Wednesday because I’ve been out of town for two days. We just got back this afternoon from Chapel Hill where my husband David had surgery on his sinuses. They cleaned him out good and kept him overnight. The doctor said in addition to the cysts they removed, there were signs of infection that have been there for a long time, so it’s going to be worth the mess and discomfort. The biggest post-op order is:

Don’t blow your nose!

David, had similar surgery way back in 1979. The good news is: this time it’s much less painful, the surgery went well, and there’s a 50% chance snoring will improve. ūüôā

One-Liner Wednesday: What if….

What if this darkness is not the darkness of the tomb, but the darkness of the womb?”¬†¬†¬†¬† _ Valarie Kaur

 

I discovered this question in the powerful Ted Talk shared in one of Brad’s Awesome Stories.

I first watched this Ted Talk a few months ago.¬† After watching it again last night, I wondered if I have abandoned my post. (I’ve always sometimes felt guilty when I’m not trying to save the world.) Yet, I’m posting this video and that’s gotta count for something. I’ve just withdrawn a bit to tend to my own needs and family, though tomorrow I am helping a friend. Today I am loving myself – tending the womb. When the time comes, my love will be ready for others and my opponents.

One-Liner Wednesday: Nookie to the Rescue!

Nookie is the nickname for Nanook, a free spirited husky mix who wanders around Alaska rescuing  lost or injured hikers. The following video gives a detailed account of how Nookie saved a solo hiker who fell down a mountain and became submerged trying to cross a freezing river.

 

And here’s the ABC News version of the story including a reunion between Nookie and Amelia and a focus on the SPOT device that helped human rescuers find them:

One-Liner Wednesday: Old Friends

Old friends

Tomorrow, my three girlfriends from high school are coming to town to continue the reunion tradition we started in 2010. I don’t plan to be stupid. I’m not a spontaneous person by nature. But when I get together with my high school girlfriends, sometimes¬† spontaneously stupid things come out of my mouth and they love me anyway, though if I’m stupid enough, they’ll call me on it. We don’t talk a lot in between reunions, but we don’t have to. We know we will be there for each other if needed. We know we have something special and lasting in each other’s hearts.

I might not post again until next week, but know that you, my blogging friends, are dear to me, too. You’ll be in my heart.

One-Liner Wednesday: Dirt

There’s a reason God made dirt instead of pavement.

 

Actually, there are many reasons. Feel free to comment on the value of dirt.
