Oops did I say that out loud?

I was minding my own business as I was going inside a local small grocery store.  I spoke to the man that was leaving out the door as I was entering.  I always speak to everyone that I see.  He said my name and I looked at him again and said “Oh hi I wasn’t paying attention and I didn’t notice it was you” He gave my a long hug and gave me his condolences for the passing of my brother.  I thank him but I wasn’t expecting what came out of his mouth next.  He said ” I should have married you when I had a chance to” now I wasn’t expecting what came out of my mouth either I said ” and when did you ever think that you had a chance to marry me?” (We never kissed, dated, or even held hands so it must have been in his dreams).  Later I got home and felt bad that my response was so cold.

I normally am the person who is trying to spare others feelings.  I don’t know what came over me.  I think it is getting started.  The age when you say what’s on your mind.  Oh my, I’m getting to that mature age when older women give unsolicited advice, that age when you say things like back when I was your age,  watch out world… Janet is on the loose.  (My alter ego)

Hello it's me. I am who I am, whoever that is? I'm on this journey of life and trying to enjoy it one day at a time. I hope you enjoy my blogs because I will enjoy them by myself if you don't! I love to laugh and love to share laughter.

  1. Just keep living. Oophs, our grandmother use to say that. Oh how true this statement was but we couldn’t see it at the time. Life is so awesome & it is a blessing to get to the age where you say what you think, feel, believe… without censorship. Of course some of us was already direct. I’m still working on improving that “tact” thing along with Janet.
