June's stupid life, Pieces of Wisdom

Pieces of Sodium

In case you were up all night tossing and turning, the pot roast turned out fine. NEEDED A LITTLE SALT, but otherwise fine.

Which reminds me. Attached please find the multipaged Valentine's Day card I made for Marvin, proving once again that there is no stopping me when I use the Paint program.

The salt joke never gets old.

Anyway. After our delightful salt-free dinner last night, I asked Marvin what today's Pieces of Wisdom query should be, and he said, "How about asking people what their worst Valentine's Day, ever, was?"

I do not know where he came up with a question like that, but okay. Do tell. Let me know by 10 p.m. my time (Eastern time) so I can report your results tamale. And I know you like it when I say "tamale" like that.

Saltily,

June

  1. Please, for the love of all that’s good, do NOT ask Marvin for a suggestion regarding blog fodder.
    Okay, now my story: I think every Valentine’s Day is the most depressing one ever since the schools allow florists/who(m)ever to deliver to schools. Esp. when you teach in a school where PLENTY of students have parents who simply can’t afford to send their kids a Valentine bouquet/teddy bear/candy/whatever (I’m talking 8-9-10-11 yrs old if that matters.)— I’ve seen it over n over again — it sends SUCH a message. A message to the ones who are called to come and pick up their Valentine and to those that don’t get the call — and they are so young . My two cents.

  2. These are so interesting, actually a great question to ask. I don’t know of any good-or-bad V-days. This year, however, my hubby gave me a gorgeous card with TONS of mushy, wonderful love things said in it. Then he asked if it was ok for him to play in his regular Monday night poker game that evening??? Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh???

  3. Too embarrassed to say my name – I know what that’s like. And I’m so sorry. Are you married to my ex-husband? Because you’ve described him perfectly. The fun guy around everyone else, and wouldn’t speak to me for days and days for absolutely no reason.
    I went on a blind date for Valentine’s Day about 6 or 7 years ago. He showed up with a dozen roses at dinner. Aww, sweet, right? He was a perfect gentleman. He asked me to meet him for dinner again a week later. After dinner he told me he had a gift for me if I could walk to his car with him. He handed me a plastic grocery bag. With a sex toy inside of it. Geez, could he not hide the crazy for longer than a week?

  4. I don’t know how to post a picture on here otherwise I would have included one of Clover with my original comment.
    I thought of another horrible Valentine’s Day after I posted that one but since Master story-teller Hulk thinks my story is a spirograph I’ll skip it. It was a good one though.

    Nobody flung themselves off a bridge or signed up to hang out with Charlie Sheen in Vegas did they?

  8. Too late, but this year’s might have been my worst – we were in MI planning fil’s funeral. Valentine’s Day was really not on our radar at all this year. We did get give our son a card and an i-tunes card this a.m. He loved the card and asked if we bought it in MI – we did – because there are no good cards in TN. Bittersweet because fil always sent the best cards – bought in Michigan.

  9. oh great. Nothing like pain, rejection and death to lighten the mood around here. Now I know why Winston loves Marvin so much. I feel so damn ‘uplifted’ I think I’ll go take a walk. Did I mention I live 3 miles from the golden gate bridge. Thanks a lot Muffin.
