ok- that's IT!! tomorrow i will NOT eat 2 plates of topcheese, chips, gucamole dip and DIET squirt, ... but i will think of the memory.
i'm listening to kenny g's "auld lang syne" to that background music, there is a recap of the events that rocked the world as we know it. it never ceases to bring tears to me, as many of the events seem still fresh with me- things that are not easily gotten over- pres. kennedy's death. i was a senior in high school and in study hall - we all made our way to the current events room where there was a tv and stood in shock as the story unfolded. i walked home that day instead of taking the bus. a woman i passed said "did you hear?" "yes", i said - i didn't want to talk about it - it made it all seem true and i didn't want it to be true. i was glued to the tv set and we all saw jack ruby shoot lee harvy oswald who was the supposed assassin-- right on our tv- and then the funeral- my parents couldn't understand why i had to eat in front of the tv and not in the kitchen with them. it was a life changing happening and will always be with me and so many others that witnessed it.
on that note, i will retire to my bed- there's a party going on in the living room .. let's hope for a clean kitchen in the am. i ask for very little.
