Weather pristine, friends break “pita chips over lunch, gather round the mah jongg campfire- add a friend from high school and three more from the heart of home and a recipe of success is cooking. The night follows the theme of the day. Dinner with dear friends, Tina fey’s latest movie through which a well deserved nap is grabbed, add a pinch of popcorn and we’re on our way. With a drink after the movies at our friend’s happy home we leave feeling the day drip through us like a Vit C cocktail. We drive 5 minutes and we are home ONLY to find we left the colloquial stew on the stove too long. With our keys inside we are “locked out.” A recipe for disaster or another inconvenience to push through. My grandmother’s advice was to “push it away mamala” when adversity dialed my number. So I dug down deep to the bottom of my soul and I tried. Hello 24/7 locksmith can you help me out? I am on a journey of discovery and I need a push to get there. As I see it I am no longer going to the butcher for flowers. I am starring down life ” in your face”- being thankful I didn’t get closed out of the mah Jong game. Let’s do it Tuesday.
