Yep, somehow Radge got the ball rolling and I was game enough to accept the challenge from the Barman, who assigned me the letter "L". Here goes.
LAUGHTER: simple solution to what ails you. Besides, how can you hear a little kid giggle and not join in?
LISTENING: it’s a lost art, I’m telling ya. You learn so much when you shut your mouth and open your ears. Plus, life is better with music.
LIFE: as annoying as things can be at times, I’m guessing living life is more fun than the alternative. I just need to learn how to live it to the fullest, without the part where I worry so much.
LEARNING: until they plant me in the ground, my mind is in a continuous state of learning about something new. How else would I have found you people?
LABS: Can’t imagine a world without my two 4 legged kids, our chocolate labs Smokey and Boudreaux…even if the girl at the Vet can’t say the last one and calls him “Border X”.
LOGIC: seems to have gone extinct sometimes, but I do so enjoy people who have common sense and aren’t afraid to use it.
LAVENDER: I love the smell! Can’t grow it around here but the scent is readily available in soap and lotion.
LOST: not my mental state, the t.v. program. Why? Because it’s different, not predictable and allows me to be a kid by suspending reality to play along.
LASAGNA: because once in a while, the palate likes a change.
LAST: Not as in coming in at the end of the race but savouring the last of something: the last chocolate chip cookie, the last light of day before sunset, that last bit of silence at daybreak before the world gets busy.
LOVE: Yes, I did save the best for last. It’s the one thing I wouldn’t want to live without.
