When I’m having a fine day
and good fortune comes my way:
that hundredth view, retablo sales,
party talk of special tales,
lottery winnings, publications,
plans for future great vacations,
cute things that my dogs may do,
films especially fun to view,
pounds lost, friends gained, birds I see,
a new fantastic recipe,
or, if perchance I’m feeling yucky,
first person whom I call is Duckie!
And though I know he won’t agree
in granting this last wish to me,
because of all the joy he gives me,
I sure do hope that he outlives me!

The Prompt: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious–You get some incredibly, amazingly, wonderfully fantastic news. What’s the first thing you do?

(Who is Duckie? He often comments here as okcforgottenman. I wrote another poem about him here and talk about him here.)

      Duckie is my best “new” friend. (Not counting relatives and friends I’ve had since grade school and college.) I met him 4 years ago on OkCupid and although most of our communication is via Skype now, we talk many times during the day.

      Fealty means loyalty or faithfulness. It’s derived from a vassal’s sworn loyalty to a lord. I don’t claim the lordship part–just the loyalty part–the most important part of friendship, I think, along with the ability to make each other laugh!!! I’m glad someone is as snoopy as I am!! Judy
