There are some questions that just beg new answers…
‘Watcha doin’?” is one that jumps to mind..
When someone calls on the phone (that’s a funny thing to say..what else would they be calling on..) ...or they ask from another room- our first response is usually “nuthin’”
I think I’ll start coming up with some things I have always wanted to be doing the next time someone asks..
- lowering my cholesterol
- seeing how long I can hold my breath before I pass out
- measuring the length of my arms
- learning to whistle through my fingers
- connecting the freckles on my hand
- naming my toes
- wondering if what I see with my eyes closed is really the insides of my eyelids
- designing u-turn signals to send to car makers
- trying to brush my teeth with my left hand
And speaking of Christmas – do you remember what your last doll was?
Mine was Pollyanna. I had just seen the movie with Haley Mills – I wonder if that’s available on disc?
Anyway – I remember her straw hat, gingham dress and bloomers. And her blond curls…
I love love love the smell of new dolls heads. Not that I’ve ever gotten just the heads – but I thought it would be silly to go around smelling…well…anything else.
Even after my kids were grown, I could be caught smelling the dolls in the toy isle..
Haven’t done that for a while – I wonder if they smell the same. It just makes me happy. I’m going to have to go shopping and find the doll section again.
Hope the great smells (memories) haven’t changed…
Do you have weird smelly-memories..wait...that doesn't’t sound right…out-of-the-ordinary-smelly-memories…memories of out-of-the-ordinary....
Christmas-smells..yeah..that sounds better..
OK, so remember, do your facial exercises...mine are working, huh?!
