Sneaking A Peek.
10/22/16 Jim's Rant For The Day. Sneaking A Peek.
When I was 25 years old, around 1975, I was diagnosed with a genetic eye disease that was making my eyes bulge out of my head. A year after diagnosis I was having a regular check-up. The doctor told me it was the most adverse reaction to mini-skirts he had ever seen. Like a fool, I went home and told my wife. There I was, in the hey day of mini-skirts, and I couldn't sneak a peek for two years! Ghawd, I didn't think I would ever make it through that period.
Well, my big mouth did it to me again. Yesterday I told Betty of my decision to take a sabbatical from our Prepping project. She immediately starting shaking her finger and said I needed to do just what I told her I was going to do. Later I finally received some tent patching material in the mail. I told her I was going down to patch a canvas tent so I could be finished with that project.
That is when she did her hawk routine. You know the one, where her neck gets a few inches shorter and her head darts 10 degrees to the left then back to the right, all while she squints at me. Oh Ghawd, I don't think I am going to make it through this.
