Breaking In

Breaking In

Last night I was with two talkative friends who just wouldn’t stop talking. I had a very interesting anecdote that had happened to me that I wanted to tell but I could not find a break in the conversation. I kept even trying to interrupt but no matter what I did, they just kept on talking, talking, talking, talking. It was so frustrating and finally I just said, “Stop! I have a really interesting thing to tell you but you need to stop long enough for me to tell it!!!!!”

It was at that point that I woke up and realized the book I’d been listening to as I fell asleep had been playing all night and it was unlikely that any of the characters were going to stop talking long enough for me to join in the conversation. I shut the lid on my computer and fell back asleep and by the time I woke up to the kitty’s pleas for breakfast, I could no longer remember the interesting story I was so anxious to share!!!!!

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      This is at least the second time this happened but can’t remember the details of the first. Although, I remember one from when I was a pre-teen. I was brushing my teeth in my dream and I woke up just as I was spitting on my pillow!!!!

    LOL! I love this! Hey, I want to share something that happened to me yesterday that reminded me of what you were saying in your youtube presentation. I like to save fortunes from fortune cookies too but usually they are just laying around here and there. I was trying to decide whether I should have dinner and postpone my bike ride until the morning or not. I had decided to postpone the bike ride and put my dinner in the microwave. Looking on the counter I noticed a fortune from take-out a few weeks ago and picked it up. It said: “Stalling could sour your fantasy (which for me meant to get skinny again and start dating again.) Start that travel adventure (which to mean means the bike ride to get skinny again…) with gusto. The message was clear. I ate my dinner and then had a very enjoyable bike ride afterwards.
