FUNNY THINGS...BY b. Malin
LOVE & MARRIAGE AND FLORIDA...
I'm back...not that I've been away, away. We are still in Florida land, fixing the "Condo with the View", and hating the thought of going back to New Jersey in a few weeks. I think we have fallen in love with North Palm Beach...and the people. It's taken months for us to finally say, this is really our place, a place in the Sun...Not that we bake, NO, not us...we are very PRACTICAL...And who's had time...Not us! So what have I got to talk about? Well for one thing, we have not purchased a TV because we are really on a tight schedule, and no time to watch it anyway...Do I miss it? Certain shows, like Mad Men, and the Good Wife, Blue Bloods, Missing, and Revenge, and so we listen to a lot of radio, and that's where this tale begins...
Last Sunday, after breakfast I am working in the Bedroom and Lover Man is in the Den trying to hang the blinds. Actually, truth be told, I am trying to stay out of his way, for if I'm in the same room he makes mistakes... Men... Anyway, the radio is on, and it's the "Dr. So and So's" show, I won't use his actual name, you'll understand why afterwards. The Doctor is a "Gynecologist" and does Plastic Surgery as well...Some combination. Now the "Host" who's name shall also remain anonymous say's, "Good morning Doctor, before we take calls, I have to tell you, my Daughter told me she really enjoyed meeting you for her FIRST Gynecological visit".
I'm thinking OMG, what is wrong with this "Host" doesn't she realize the World, ok, maybe NOT the world, but the State of Florida, has now just been informed of this...I now picture the daughter at home, Mortified! And I'm sorry to admit, but I'm hysterically laughing as I go running into the living room and crash into Lover Man who is also laughing and saying, "do you believe that woman"! We could picture the girl SCREAMING and wanting to KILL the Mother Host...While all her friends are Texting one another...while the daughter is threatening NEVER to be seen in public again!
Another Funny thing, we're driving in the Car, on one of our "RETURN MISSIONS" probably to "Home Depot" where they actually know our names...having been there SO MANY TIMES, anyway, there is this building with a sign that reads "Connecticut School of Broadcasting" on the front of it. "Mmm, I say to Lover Man, do you think somewhere in Connecticut, there is a building with a sign that reads, "Florida School of Broadcasting"? We both Laugh...we are spending a lot of time together with only one car in Florida land, it's a good thing that we Enjoy each others company, EXCEPT, when we are working on a Project...Then the SPARKS begin...but in the end, we makeup and say, "What was that all about anyway"?
Last Friday night, we went to a "Pizza Party" at the new Condo Club house and got to meet a lot of our neighbors. We had just moved in that day and were hot, and sweaty, but at the last minute we said, what the heck, we've got to eat, and so we went. We wound up talking with a nice couple from Long Island...Also a Second Marriage. She kept saying to me, you look like you're Glowing with Happiness and you make such a striking Couple...I'm thinking as I look at Lover Man...It's pure Sweat...but it's also LOVE, and Marriage, and Florida.
