So, yesterday was Ash Wednesday and though I couldn’t quite gather up the guts to go to church, I decided to give something up for lent. After much careful deliberation, I thought to NOT get angry for the next six weeks. Tough deal and definitely not going to happen. So I decided to quit on the next thing that I do best…..COMPLAINING. Yes, for the next 6 weeks, I will do my best not to complain about anything, be it the dirty plates my food is served in, or the taxi driver who crossed me illegally. This may be the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can get angry but not complain?!!!! Arghh! I can feel a complaint coming up already…..
To make things even worse, to make up for all the years that I missed out on lent, I’ve decided to give up two things this year. Anyone who knows me, knows by now that aside from geting angy and complaining, I have one vice that’s most annoying; My use of the F word! For six weeks, little miss potty mouth will not utter a single F#$%. And to prevent me from cheating, I won’t be allowed to say my signature fudge, which I put in place of the F word when in polite company. This should prove interesting.
Anyway, just wondering if you lot will be giving up anything for lent? And if yes, what it’ll be? Anyone doing multiple losses like me? I think there’s a betting pool on how long I will be able to keep from saying the F word rofl.
Body, heart and soul
Are what I gave to you
Pain and misery
Were what you thought my due
No candy for me this year
Nor bubbly chapagne too
You see, I can’t get rid of the bitter taste
Of the ones I got from you
With time, it’s thanking you I’ll do
You taught your lesson beautifully
And I must take my cue
When next I love,
I’ll be sure to show it all year through
And the one I’m with won’t need just one day
To say, “I Love You”!
I truly dislike Val’s day. It’s because of the simple fact that people choose to hide their love until one time of year. I’m the kind to love all year through and damn the consequences. I don’t like christmas either. I give gifts all year through as and when I like and I prefer to get things when I do not expect them. Having been offered love on val’s day and then having it taken away the very next year, I’m disinclined to believe anyone who comes knocking this time of year. Come back when you don’t have the whole world watcing and prodding and we’ll talk 😉
PS. My sis thought I’d broken up with my boyfriend when she saw this. For those of you who know us, PLEASE! It’s a just a poem.
3:20 am and I’m suddenly awake. Something feels odd. A flash of something catches my eye and being the curious person I am, I turn to find out what’s moving along my wall.
GECKO!!! Eugh!! Now insert guttaral sounds of disgust here.
Since my bed is against the wall, this stupid creature decides to latch itself onto my pillow and then takes free reign over my bed. Where am I? across the room making mewling sounds that wake my sister up. Like an amazonian warrior, she grabs a comb and sets to work flicking the bugger off my bed.
Me? I’m in the sidelines saying, “He’s behind the shoe!” “Get Him!” and “Kwasia! Who said you could touch my sheets?”. Suffice it to say she did a good job, relegating the beast to the floor and chasing it behind the fridge, muttering to it, “Now sleep so I can get some sleep of my own”.
Or was that to me?……
(Self confessed shrieker at most things reptilian, buggy and non domesticated furry)
PS. I’m not sleeping on those sheets till they are boiled and washed lol
