Just Don’t

… about me until you’ve talked to me.

…..underestimate me until you’ve challenged me.

…..judge me until you know me.

And even then, just DON’T!

Did He Call?

“No, he hasn’t called met. Maybe he’s just not interested. It’s cool, I didn’t really like him that much anyway so, whatever. He was so….oh, hold on, got another call…..OMG, it’s him, IT’S HIM!!! Should I answer?…K bye!”

Merry Christmas 2020 – gifts

Michael at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie posed the following challenge: This week, because it is Christmas Eve, write about a gift you received or gave, or about being gifted in some way.

When I was a little girl I somehow became obsessed with the Betty Boop character. It all started with a nightshirt my mother gave me that I wore until all print faded. For many years after, my collection steadily grew to include a range of items from T-shirts and socks to a custom license plate, all gifted me either for Christmas or my birthday. One year my best friend gave me a porcelain cookie jar in the shape of Betty Boop on a motorcycle, and her husband added to my figurine collection with a few gems he found in New York City. Soon, their oldest daughter joined in with some lovely surprises of her own, including a Betty Boop salt-n-pepper shaker and Tervis drinking cup.

Well, today I received this beautiful Christmas gift from my son – two canvas paintings he commissioned from my best friend’s granddaughter, now the third generation to support my obsession. I’ve admired this young lady’s talents since she was a toddler and I am proud to be the new owner of a set of mani.cartoonz originals.
