This journal is a bunch of rants about nothing. Mostly lighthearted happenings in the life of a woman who is very simple and who wants for nothing but greatly appreciates whatever is given. You will find nothing profound here but hopefully something that will make you laugh and that's what I enjoy doing most. Being humorous. Fight all error, but do it with good humor, patience, kindness, and love. Harshness will damage your own soul and spoil the best cause.

Cigars and Martinis

For 3 days I spent an enormous amount of company time (stealing in God's eyes)  searching for a Christmas gift for the prince I mentioned in one of my previous entries.  Do you guys know how hard it is to come up with an idea for princes that you barely know and within a budget of zilch?  I was on a mission and asked a male friend for ideas.  That was probably my first mistake because in all his maleness he said to ask leading questions to find out information. So I knew he smoked cigars because of a picture I had seen.  Of course, I know zilch about cigars or brands.  So, I, with the most innocent of intentions did just that...made a statement with the intent of finding information on his favorite brand.   

In a text, me:  "a good cigar and martini"

Him:  "would you like to come to my place?"

Me:   "ummm....."

Not exactly the way I expected that conversation to go....or any of the conversation thereafter.  My conclusion?  Never listen to male friends.

I did eventually find out the brand of cigar in a totally different way....by point blank asking.  Go figure!

No matter what...find a way to smile...it improves face value...

My grandma used to smoke cigars...and before that a pipe. She worked down the mines. Times were hard. She lived in a box at the bottom of the garden...near the rhubarb.

maybe not.
