Mini-Post Mondays: Rophaldo, The M-Word, Thieves, Frick, Dumb, and Cute.

So it turns out Tidbits & Smidgens (Nonsense & Shenanigans’ biweekly newsletter) didn’t work out. It was just too much for me to worry about. However, now you all get a piece of the action, as I’ve incorporated it into Mini-Post Mondays!

Rophaldo and Mike

What’s her name again? Is it Samara, too? Because I’ve been ‘meeting’ a lot of people named Samara. No, that’s someone else. Sahara? SAVANNAH. I knew it was one of those.

This is what goes through my head when trying to remember someone’s name. The above actually happened, just now in my head, while conversing with Savannah from When Nothing Goes Write. (She’s awesome, by the way. She says she’s like me only I’m better but I think it’s the other way around.) (I should stop being so mushy about other bloggers. I’m not a creep, I promise think.)

Sadly, more than half the time it doesn’t even go that well. I come up with something like Rophaldo and the person’s name is actually Mike. Just Mike. Not even Micheal.

The M-Word

Let me tell you a story . . .


(P.S. I had no idea this whole hating that word thing was a movement. I just remember never liking it.)

Liars and Thieves

My son stole the necklace I got myself as a Valentine’s Day present because Jack told him “it’s like Sophia’s” so now I have a thief and a liar in my midst.

It does look adorable on him, though.

me: Holden just came into the bathroom and said “Wow! It’s frickin’ cold!” I’m so proud.

Jack: Yeah, that’s a proud parent moment right there.

me: Well at least he didn’t say “fucking”. Kids are allowed to say frickin’ in school, aren’t they?”

Jack: No.

me: Seriously? Like freeak-ing? (I over-enunciated ‘freaking’ to make my point.)

Jack: I dunno, maybe. Probably not.

So now I need your help. (I’ve allowed repeat voting. You’ll see why.)

Dumb in the Darkness

I’m dumb. I’ve been acting dumb and I did a few dumb things.

I got put on meds. I just wanted to feel alive. But the darkness lingered.

The meds stopped working, so I doubled up. But the darkness lingered.

My meds ran out. I started taking my old meds. A lot of them. Like whiskey they burn my throat, but don’t give me the same effect. The darkness lingers.

I cut my hair. I was in the shower trying to brush it. It got to be too much so I chopped off the ends. And the darkness lingered.

I cut it again. I don’t know how it happened, but once I realized I was holding the scissors I went through with it. Now I have uneven hair with bangs. And the darkness lingers.

I can’t sleep. I take more pills. I wonder if I’m withdrawing or manic or just back to the darkness. Or maybe mania is darkness. I don’t really know anymore.

I’m trying to train myself to look for signs of the darkness’s approach. But how can I do that if I don’t even know what the darkness is?

Cute with the E

me: You’re cute.

Holden: YOU’RE . . .

me: I’m not cute?

Holden: You ARE cute!

me: Why thank you.

Holden: And I’m cute!

me: Yes, you’re very cute.

Holden: And Poppop’s cute!

I don’t think he understands what cute means.
