endless

Oh the endless visits from my mother-in-law…how can I possibly stop them from happening? Partly this is my fault for allowing them to happen in the first place. If had just been mean and bitchy from day one, I could avoid her (and the whole family) from coming to visit every few months. They are such slobs and never clean up after themselves.

angels

“For all the angels and saints, can you please stay still?”, the mother yelled to the child, who continued to move even after being yelled at.

All the other adult customers in the store, turned to look at where the angered mother was.

peripheral

In her peripheral vision, she could see that there was a black spot. She couldn’t quite make out if it was a shadow or a smudge on her side mirror. She couldn’t validate it through her rear view window so what could it be?

believe

Believe in whatever you want. I don’t agree with you. I don’t think we should close off the borders to refugees or immigrants. After all, they built this country from scratch. You can continue to scare people into think you are a good leader but many people don’t believe a word you say.

“You have to believe. You have to know that you mean the world to me! How could you not know that?”
“Well, partly because your actions and your words never match each other! Ever think about that?”
He looked at her incredulously. He thought he was so obvious in his actions towards her. But apparently, she didn’t feel the same way.

reflecting

Reflecting on the time I spent in “The City of Lights”, I remember the wonderful friends I made, the independence I gained, the fabulous food I ate and the love that grew between me and that incredible city.

lure

Despite giving me chocolates and a wonderful caramel macchiato to lure me into the bad news he was going to deliver, I was ahead of his game. I knew his tricks and wasn’t going to let him get the best of me. I had prepared for this encounter for weeks and I was going to get my revenge. He couldn’t play me for a fool.

shaken

“Shaken, not stirred”, he said doing his best James Bond impression.
She was not impressed. She wanted to punch him in the face. She knew that he would never, could never be as suave and debonair as the legendary literary and film character.

When I hear the encouragement that we should turn our emotions to art, I am shaken to the core. Art isn’t seen as anything important. It’s not what pays the bills. Being a completely close-minded jerk is what pays the bills. Being personable and sensitive is for no one important.

televised

The event would be televised, which was a change from previous years. Most of those involved wondered why the change had even been made. The few who were happy about it seemed ridiculously content with the decision, which made the others even more skeptical.

rattle

She held the rattle tightly in her hand and wouldn’t release it. She looked deeply into my eyes as if she wanted to say “Go ahead, mommy, make my day!” I should have known at that point that I had my work cut out for me with my daughter, but I refused to think that a baby was going to get the best of me.

orbit

The children were playing in the gymnasium. As the ball was tossed around in an orbit, no one noticed the solitary child being left out of yet another game. Why was she neglected? Because she was overweight.

projector

The movie projector had obviously overheated. The film was distorted onto the screen as if it had had one too many drinks and lost its balance. The projector specialist had not noticed that this was going on until all the audience members began to screech, “Hey! What’s going on with the movie?” or things in a similar vein. Positively though the yelled obscenities must have gotten his attention as they put into question the specialist’s competence and intelligence. Those types of things can be heard from any soundproof room, if you ask me.

scientific

The data is scientific. It was culled from information from many different forms of research around introverts and how they hate to say exactly how they feel for fear that people will think they don’t know how to communicate verbally. They think in writing, in words on a page – not ones spoken.

workshop

It’s time to take the plunge and really get this writing gig going. Maybe I should sign up for that workshop. Maybe I can just keep tinkering here on my computer without ever making any kind of progress. That would be the safe thing to do. Never push the envelope, never break lose and live your dream. Sure, that’s the way to do it. I guess it’s time for the workshop after all.

encounter

It was a dark street in the early evening. It was the place they had agreed upon for their encounter. It was the first time she had ever done anything like this. She was jittery with both excitement and anxiety. What if he didn’t show up?

prove

The part I dislike about changing jobs is having to prove myself over again. You get to a point where you get really tired of having to start from scratch. You want your legacy to stay with you but it’s hard to have a legacy if you keep moving from one place to another because you can’t stand the corporate legacy. It’s a catch-22. Especially when as you get older, you don’t care about impressing anyone.

welcome

Welcome to my life! It is filled with data crunching and spreadsheets that would make your eyes tear up before you even understood a quarter of what they are saying. I sit at my desk for more than 8 hours a day and it’s horrible. Yes, I want something else but this the choice I have made.

disaster

When I can’t get my hair together it is a disaster. A first world issue but still a disaster. And it isn’t about it not being the right style, it is about how to hide the grays from showing. I’m only 30 years old and I have a head full of gray hair. That truly is a disaster! Thanks mom and dad for both being prematurely gray and giving this wonderful trait to me as well.

gears

The gears on the bicycle had jammed and I found myself careening down the pebble covered driveway. In the skidding, I knew I had cut open a few gashes along my leg. What made me decide to take the bike out knowing I hadn’t been on a bike in years?

» Posted By Gigi On 02.17.2016 @ 12:46 pm

The gears were moving at a clip. There was no way I would be falling asleep tonight. My brain was inundated with thoughts about so many things – my weight, what to wear to work tomorrow, when would I get my next manicure, would I be able to run all my errands during my lunch break.

congregate

The mean girls always seems to congregate near the bathroom. Not sure if it was due to their incessant amounts of makeup or because it was one of the only places they could hide. Whatever the reason, they were always lurking in those doorways whispering or chuckling as I walked by. I am not sure how no one hurt them but I guess popularity grants you later death.

club

The only club I go to that I approve of is my fitness club and even that is tenuous. Sometimes I just don’t fit in there either. I know I’m an introvert and like being by myself but there are so many clubs out there you need to be in just to be accepted. Not sure why it has to be this way but it is. Back to my health club, I go there because it makes me feel better but I wish it were empty most of the time.

accusations

During the debates all you hear are accusations of what one person did and how they are lying to the American public. It makes me wonder when we became such a litigious society that we feel that the best way to deal with others is to make accusations.

families

I sometimes see families and they are so happy. And then I reflect on my own and realize that something has gone terribly wrong. Granted, I may not be privy to what happens behind closed doors. But I still believe other families get along while mine does not.

whimper

I am surprised this word came up again. I guess that’s worthy of a whimper. I was looking for something different to get my mind going but I suppose revisiting a classic isn’t a bad thing. I whimper when the alarm goes on every morning. Another day of boring work. Does it have to be this way forever, I wonder? People like their jobs, right?

The sound of a puppy whose paw is hurt. The sound of my soul when people tell me my writing sucks. I know it doesn’t. You don’t know the basics of grammar and can’t communicate so you are just being a total jerk. I am tired of you correcting me when I know I am right. I just know there is no point in telling you that you are wrong because you don’t listen. You never listen. I would love for you to whimper as I tell you what a useless person you are.

wealthy

I always thought that being wealthy was about how much stuff you had. That stuff could be money or houses or cars or coach bags. But I realize that wealthy is a state of mind and everything is relative. I am wealthy. I have friends and family who love me who I can count on.

signed

segnato in italiano, una parola di cui fatico a comprendere il significato, forse vuol dire sfregiato, forse appuntato, forse non centra niente. perchè sono qui? dovrei essere triste

shoulder

The peeling skin peels away from the sensitive skin. Sunscreen isn’t that hard to put on, but having the patience to do so is.
