Here I sit, celebrating my 90th birthday. I have lived a long, happy life. I've seen many things in my life. Some were good, some were bad, but all of them were defining in someway.
I have mentioned, several times, that there is one thing I have never seen. I was sure my family was trying to ignore me and my crazy old lady ramblings. But I knew....I KNEW that my life just wouldn't be complete until I got see this one thing.
My family was gathered here to help celebrate this momentous occasion. I mean, it's not every day you turn 90! There was cake, food, family, friends.....you'd think I'd be satisfied.
But I'm not.
I knew they'd forget.
It's time to open presents. The fun is almost over. I didn't get my wish. That makes me sad. I know I SHOULDN'T be sad. I'm surrounded b so many wonderful people. Yet, something is missing.
Finally, they wheel out a pretty sizable box. I wonder if it is the toy house I saw my grandson building.
I open it.
Out popped a man in nothing but a g-string loin cloth.
As this good looking man gyrates, giving me a lap dance, I slip from this life with a smile. I've seen the Seven Wonders of the World. I've been madly in love. But this....this stripper has caused my life to be complete and me to die a happy woman.
Today’s post is a writing challenge. This is how it works: participating bloggers picked 4 – 6 words or short phrases for someone else to craft into a post. All words must be used at least once and all the posts will be unique as each writer has received their own set of words. That’s the challenge, here’s a fun twist; no one who’s participating knows who got their words and in what direction the writer will take them. Until now.
