Did you have a good Valentine's Day? I'm scooting around this morning to snoop and see what you have to say about it. My day was lovely, but I want to tell you about my Valentine's Eve. Don't get all **twitterpated, it's just funny. At some point in the night I became aware of my beloved standing over me offering something, something that smelled just like peanut butter. I'll use dialogue as it's so much easier that way.
I: What's that?!
He: A peanut butter sandwich.
He: (somewhat surprised) Because you asked me for one.
I: I asked you for a peanut butter sandwich? When?
He: Just now, you asked me for a piece of bread.
I: Are you kidding me?
He: Nooooo, and I repeated that back to you and you added 'with peanut butter on it.'
I: Well you know what you can do with it!
He: (muttering) Guess I'll be eating a peanut butter sandwich.
It's true love when your beloved eats a peanut butter sandwich that you ordered in the middle of the night. I was telling my son and daughter-in-law about this and my daughter-in-law told me that my son talks all the time in his sleep and that she just has to ignore it. Good advice for my darling, too, I guess. I truly had no idea that I talk/issue orders in my sleep.
Yesterday, I realized once again how powerful my suggestions are. I asked my sister how her Christmas cactus was doing. (Mine has one measly bud and I have followed "the rules" perfectly.) Again, dialogue...
She: Oh my yes, thank you for telling me how to take care of that cactus...it's loaded with blooms and has been blooming for months.
I: It has?!
She: Oh yes! Why within days of bringing it out of the basement it was blooming.
I: Out of the basement?
She: Yes, just like you told me. You said to leave it down there for a couple of months and forget about it.
I: Noooo, that's for geraniums, not for Christmas Cactuses.
At which point, my niece interjected...
"That Cactus was so happy to get out of that cold, dark basement it was willing to do anything."
Hmmmm, in that case, I think mine has earned some time in the basement!
Have a wonderful Monday, Dear Ones.
**twitterpated: excited for no account such as some (you know who you are) were wont to be over my Valentine Tea. Check comments for my response.
