Saturday Centus/Meeting of the Minds


It is New Year's Eve. I for one am ready to wrap the year in a tea towel, box it up, and store it in the garage. There have been worse, there have been better, but a new year is in the wings. Time to move on no matter what. No big resolutions for me; I just want to be more accepting of who I am and where I am at in the moment! 

Happy New Year with Peace and Happiness to all my friends and readers!


It is the last Saturday of 2011 and Jenny still finding time for a Centus! Today Resolution Schmezolution is the prompt. Below is my used of the two words and a scene of 100 words using them. For more Centus and the rules, check out Jenny's blog at: http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2011/12/saturday-centus-resolution.html

                                      Meeting of the Minds

“I can’t believe you have not started a list of changes for 2012 yet,” he said.



“I’m not doing it this year."


“Why not?" he pressed.


“Because nothing changes anyway. I’m just going to float my boat in the same murky waters of the last few years. Lucky for you, I’m still here helping paddle yours!”


“How about shrinking the muffin top?” he pushed.” Or cleaning the hall closet? Learning to cast a straighter fly line? Keeping supplies of toilet paper ready?”


Resolution, Schmezolution!” I exploded. “Why make NewYear’s resolutions when I am already PERFECT!”


Silence can be deafening.

What big accoutrements this man has. To even mention muffin tops? Such gall. I say pull your hand out of your pants and get your lard butt off the couch and take the garbage out. And while you're at it swept the walk! :D

I liked this. It got me fired up! I take NO crap from a man!

Have a healthy, happy New year. Take no crap from men!~Ames :D

Okay.

Several weeks into this new year and I totally needed a laugh today.

This cracked me up!

Love, love, loved this!

2012 is gonna be better. 2012 is gonna be better.

I think I'm going to chant this until it comes true.

Wishing you another year filled with 'perfection'!

ha!
