Can I Just Tell You?

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 this point 8/3/15, 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!

Diamonds

You know, it’s so funny, I like to think of myself as a little minx. (Albeit, a conservative one but, still.) However, I haven’t been kissed in weeks. (I was about to type months but I’m pretty sure there was a drunken incident within the past couple of months, I just can’t remember with whom.)
 

Needless to say, I’ve been looking. Fortunately, my family has backed off a little on the “Have you found someone yet?” so; I’m not feeling as much pressure. It’s only taken 20 years…
 

Well, can I just tell you? A friend at work suggested I try a company started by his wife’s best friend. It’s a matchmaking site for millionaires. Apparently, she seeks out men at a certain income bracket looking to marry a woman who falls into a certain age bracket... Mine.
 

At first, I thought, “No, I’m much too picky to marry for money.” Now, I’m thinking why not?
 

Okay, I know money can’t buy love. However, it can certainly buy Christian Louboutin’s, monthly facials/massages, and a personal trainer (so I can loose those pesky 10lbs once and for all.) I could finally quit WeightWatchers.com. (I’ve only gained 3.2lbs since I started! I said it before; once you declare “diet” it’s a slow roll downhill.)
 

My grandfather always said there’s an ass for every seat. Is it really that big a deal if I’d like my seat covered in diamonds? I think not.
