time, just you and me

My Grandmother (Décima)

She was feisty, spirit so rare

Time in my life was a blessing,

Her honesty was refreshing,

Love and care she showed was sincere.

Enjoyed hearing stories she’d share

Joined at the hip, me her and mom,

They brought me peace and kept me calm

When monsters plagued my bedtime thoughts

Or my stomach was tied in knots,

A One Night Stand

Star shoots across the purple sky
A midnight sigh,
Sunrise, sunsets
With no regrets.
This night’s just one to dispose of
Not turn to love,
This ain’t for show
You come, you go.
That’s it for now, I’m satisfied
With that joyride,
You did me right
Now say goodnight.

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!”

House Party

Henry and his wife Ann just moved to the area about a month ago, so they were delightfully surprised to receive their first party invitation. Ann started feeling nervous as Henry read the particulars, realizing the party was in two days. She immediately shouted “What am I going to wear?” and suggested they buy new outfits. Henry quickly rebuffed that idea, reminding Ann of her custom-built closet full of clothes.

The day had come and Ann was excited to finally have someplace to wear her cute little black dress and pink shoes. As she applied makeup and curled her hair, Henry sat in his slacks and polo shirt watching the game and enjoying the breeze from their oscillating fan.

As soon as they arrived to the party Ann was confused by the guests attire. The men were in double-breasted suits standing beside their wives, who wore elegant fitted dresses. The hosts approached, visibly disappointed and asked, “Did you not understand the theme “Vanderbilt House Party?” Henry glanced at the invitation again and realized his oversight. “Oh, I thought that was your name, since the party is at your house,” he explained. Totally embarrassed by laughter in the background, Ann simply turned and walked out the door.
