A Little Ditty About Bick and Roxanne
Two American kids doing the best that they can.
Bick is off to Houston this morning to the family wedding to which I was not invited. Am I bitter? Hell, no. Time to loll around Reata North and pamper myself. Actually, this means I get all the gardening duties and I've been given strict instructions from Farmer McGregor hisownself about how I'm to take care of the veg in his absence. Control freak!
The Bickster's absence also means that I can indulge in my fish habit. Bick loves shellfish, but doesn't love the salmon like I do. So I'll eat lots of fish while he's gone. When we're in Washington for my reunion, I'll subsist on nothing but salmon and oysters - I cannot wait. This is just practice.
Today is restorative yoga and I've had trouble making the class. Last night there was only one person in water aerobics, so I just went to the gym instead to log some frequently tired miles.
About the wedding, I feel sure it was an oversight or lack of understanding on how to invite Uncle Bick's live in girlfriend whom they have never met. Benefit of the doubt. They've got no reason to snub me. Not worried about it.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Indulge yourself, but in a good way, today.
