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!

Can I just tell you? It looks like I won't be seeing a future American Ninja Warrior naked. Oh well. I'm not sure what's happening to me in my advanced age. I have some desire but no motivation to juggle dates. I used to be a dating machine. Maybe I just like the golfer too much. That's possible. So, in all the years of attempted online dating, I've only seen one man more than once. And, of all the sites to credit, it's Tinder, the offspring of Grindr. No judgement zone.


It is awkward letting someone know you're just not interested. I felt bad. We had a date scheduled for tonight. I hadn't heard from my golfer but my gut told me it isn't right to string along one just because I'm not sure about what's going to happen with the one I'd prefer. I am getting old! (FYI, I did have a birthday this weekend.) I had to text him and let him know he is super nice but, just not the one for me. His response, "Ouch." I wished him good luck in his search and that was the end of that.


I'm not sure how far it will go with my golfer but, it's been nice not knowing. FU, Betty.
