Running to Be Free

A forewarning this post has been a work in progress for the last two weeks since the wedding and I was trying to be ever so witty about how to answer the dreaded question "So how's your Love Life". I tried to answer the best way I can and all I got was this so I hope you enjoy it.

There are some days where I can sit down and all the words that have been tumbled upside my brain come spilling out like a big ole summer rain storm just letting everything spill out of me craving attention. Screaming notice me! Notice me!

Then there are days like today.

Where I sit down to write these deep thought provoking post and all I can think of is looking out of the window and yelling PARADE! and silently sneaking out the back door so you don't read this drivel crap I occasionally produce. By the way this parade trick works wonders when you are stuck in an awful conversation with someone. The kind where they want to know the oh! so juicy details of your life's most embarrassing moments like "When are you getting married?" it's quite simple my single friends. Point to the wall or window and yell with quite a bit of enthusiasm and conviction yell "Why look a parade!" and then while their head is turned dash for the nearest exit. Or also if you are in very close quarters a simple "ever since the accident'' and then trail off in the opposite direction works too. Cause people are often very polite and won't ask what kind of accident happened to you. I prefer to say this to when people ask about my love life well ever since my second marriage...

So if you are one of these people who ask such deep and probing questions about my love life you now know what three answers you will receive A. Parade B. Accident or C. Vague reference to a marriage that hasn't happened yet. You've been forewarned.

I'm afraid today is either/or kinda day. Either you will read this and go! Oh! Or you will righteously hand me a cigarette and a blindfold and say Adieu!


  1. Ha ha! I love the parade idea! Emily usually says something about her parole officer doesn't think that a relationship is a good idea at this point. :)

  2. When people ask me how my love life is I always respond: "I love life." If it really is their business they won't ever have to ask how my love life is, they'll know because I would have felt like sharing that information.
    Hang in there!
