A list

Things I Like (in no particular order):

  • Reading fiction, anywhere, anytime
  • my dogs
  • all dogs
  • And kittens
  • And cats that actually like people
  • chocolate
  • milk chocolate
  • white chocolate
  • Paul Reiser
  • Mad About You
  • Saturday mornings
  • sunny days (“sweeping the…”)
  • summer days
  • trees
  • books (and their smell)
  • big band music
  • lists
  • flowers
  • BIG bathtubs
  • showers with real water pressure
  • manicured lawns
  • manicured nails (my own, anyway – don’t much care for anyone else’s nails)
  • clean sheets
  • John’s clean, just-out-the-shower smell (much better than his just-came-back-from-a-long-run-sweaty smell)
  • John (duh)
  • everyone else I like (but won’t list here for fear I’ll leave someone I like off the list and that person (let’s call this person “H” for “hypothetical”)  will notice and be mad at me for leaving her (or him) off (even though it was an accident and I really do like H) and she will stop visiting my site, assuming  she was visiting and reading anyway, but if she wasn’t, she wouldn’t know I left her off and she wouldn’t get mad and stop reading, so I guess H was reading, which means, again, that I shouldn’t list anyone because I might leave someone off and she’ll get mad and stop reading)
  • decorating with books
  • my pretty new dining room table
  • Ellen DeGeneres
  • working from home
  • that relaxed feeling as you drift off to sleep

Speaking of that last one, it’s getting close to my bedtime.  More accurately, it’s getting close to that time when I should be in bed reading.

    Mom, you’re only an “H” if you’re mad that I left you off the list (that I didn’t create).

    Jess – I can make it worse. 🙂 How about “C is for cookie…”? WAY more annoying than the theme song.

  2. Zannah

    Sure, that’s annoying, Dad, but those of us without kids (or grandkids) don’t know Dora well enough to get the song stuck in our heads. Sesame Street, yes. Dora the Explorer – wrong generation.

    Nice try.

  3. Shifty1975

    did you start taking Prozac recently? “I like mornings! I like puppies! I like cute widdle kitties! Yay, the sun is shining! I love trees!” Who doesn’t like trees? I’m going to climb back into my trash can now.

  4. Zannah

    Nope. No changes to my medications. I guess I don’t need an explanation for your surliness (thank you for sticking with the theme), so I won’t ask why you hate fun. And cheerfulness. And puppies.

    Z, your new nickname is Bubbles. Corey, you’re Mr. Poopy Pants. That is all.

    I’m the map, I’m the map, I’m the map…
