Sometime you have to work at feeling better
Friday, March 05, 2021
Late one hot morning, two tourists driving through Louisiana saw on the map that the next logical stop for lunch would be at a town called Natchitoches. They wondered about the pronunciation, one favoring NATCH-ee-toe-cheese and the other saying it made more sense as Natch-ee-toe-TOTT-chez. They stopped at a franchise burger place and went inside; a fresh-faced girl took their order. One said: "We need somebody local to settle an argument for us. Could you please pronounce where we are...very slowly?"
The girl leaned over the counter so they could watch her lips and said as distinctly as she could, "Brrrrrrrr, grrrrrrr, Kiiiiiinngg."
I know what I should do, exercise and eat less but I don't seem to be doing that. I feel down today and it could be due to my older son leaving this morning and plans on being gone a week on road trip to visit army buddy in Phoenix, AZ. Or it could have to do with putting off getting my sister's gift to her. Or several other things but at least I'm thinking about it and working on doing things to feel better.
Have a great weekend.
