Welcome to Can I Just Tell You?
Thanks for visiting!

Can I just tell you? This whole site needs an overhaul. My goodness! Thank you for visiting, come back again in a few weeks. I still appreciate your support. :)
I love your support. So many of you have encouraged me to keep writing all these years. I took a few years off because I wasn't feeling very confident about my skill and self-conscience about my subject matter. I really appreciate your gentle (sometimes haunting) push to get back on the proverbial horse. My favorite thing in the world is making someone laugh, typically at my own expense. It warms my heart to hear that my silly stories have helped you smile or laugh out loud when you felt like that's the last thing you could do.


I also really appreciate the support of many boyfriends who read through my entire collection of crazy and still chose to continue dating. I'm not sure if you felt bad for me or found me charming. Regardless, thanks for the encouragement.


I'm going to change things up a little bit. As you may have guessed, from some of my posts, I have aspirations of writing a book. (Or two, three, or four… We'll see.) Anyway, all of my stories, up to 3/6/17, are true and happened to me. I'm thinking about adding some characters to my stories and playing around with fiction writing. You'll be able to tell the real stories from fiction. I think. ;-)


I'm not sure what my books are going to be like, yet. I've always enjoyed reading fiction but, maybe non-fiction is the right path for me. I'm pretty confident with the voice I've developed in telling my silly stories and would like to continue to write in that tone. I know I'm going to start off slow because, as you know, self-discipline has never been one of my stronger qualities. I may try to play around with other subjects, too. Stay tuned.


This site is meant to make you laugh through stories that you may be able to relate to whether it's sour love, a cooking disaster, a social faux-pas, etc. So, bear with me as I stumble through my experiences, hopefully, more gracefully than the actual event, but just as funny, and either share the lesson or just make you laugh out loud.

If there's ever a story that really hits your funny bone or makes your day, let me know. I'd love to hear from you.

So, sit back, put on your reading glasses and enjoy.

Please, take a minute to sign my guest book. It seems I have readers from around the world. I'd be more than happy to put you on an update list so you'll know when I have a new post. Cheers!

Dancing with the Stars

Can I just tell you how excited I am that Dancing with the Stars is back? Who doesn’t love that show? Am I the only one who has fantasies of becoming one of the stars? Or better yet, one of the instructors so I could go back each season?

I signed up for a free lesson at Arthur Murray Studios. I was paired up with a somewhat greasy young man who informed me my posture was excellent. Thank you yoga. As I read through the brochure, my attention was immediately seized by, “…learn to be an instructor. If you have some talent, we’ll train you.” The fantasies resumed. The costumes, I thought. The shoes…

Now, as I sit watching this season unfold, I can’t help but think I’ve missed my calling. My passion for dancing started years ago with my Cha Cha and Belly Dancing VHS tapes. I like to incorporate both dances into my moves on any dance floor, including the quasi one in my kitchen. Unfortunately, the belly dancing doesn’t come as easy as the Cha Cha, hence the need for professional instruction at Boston Sports Club.

I am Greek, so it’s definitely in my blood. My grandfather was an excellent dancer. He was about 5’2”, bald and somewhat round but graceful as a swan on the dance floor. The Greeks love to dance.

The men started the season off. I’m torn between the football player and the Latin dreamboat. They both made me salivate. (Speaking of salivating, I’m up 5lbs and ate like a sumo wrestler after a weigh-in this weekend at Killington. It started with the homemade waffle with chocolate sauce dripping all over the place and snowballed from there. I felt that since the muscles in my legs felt like they were burning off so, too, were the calories. I was clearly mistaken.)

So, back to the fantasy, I’ve lost 7 more pounds…and I’m instructing the football player and the Latin dreamboat simultaneously…

Whoa! I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight!

Back to the other dancers… Steve Guttenburg is an absolute doll! Love him. The gentle giant is sweet, I hope he lasts. Mario was really good and very sexy. Adam, the comedian, was stiff but he seems nice so, I hope he makes it too.

Hmm. I’m going to be sad to see any of them go!
