WE DECIDE THE REWARD
for having left home before the full moon set
in order to arrive by midday
having arrived in town an hour before we are expected
and too early to pay a call-
hot dogs with the works!
Sauerkraut, onions, mustard –
also on Wally’s, chili!
“Mind if I put that in my blog, that you ATE that?”
“No, I’m proud of it!”
“Mind if I write that you SAID that?” 🙂

TOO MANY HOURS in the car
discussing conversations that lie ahead,
conversations difficult but important –
what we might learn,
what decisions might be needed,
what outcomes we hope for –
and despite a heavy sprinkling
of comments about what’s out the window
and things we heard this past week
and what’s in the news,
and more reading aloud of the book
we are currently enjoying together,
a palpable weight
…and a need for one last break before diving in.

WE SALT our fries
like children without parental supervision
and stop eating them
about 5-6 fries after claiming
“couldn’t possibly fit another.”
feeling like we’ve gotten away with something,
we head out,
go the last mile,
picking up some random beauty along the way,
something she will call a complete waste of money
but nonetheless have a ready vase for
and ask for us to place it where she can see it. 🙂
A little FUN FOOD and RANDOM BEAUTY can go a long way.
No prescription needed.
