LOSING YOUR HEAD...by b. Malin
IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU...
Hi everyone, I've been gone for awhile...lots of "Hectic Things" going on in my life. I'm sure that they will continue for awhile longer. So today, I said aloud, "TIME OUT"...I miss "Hub Pages" and all my Hub Friends... So, Here's a little "Ditty" from a walk on the Beach...Don't Judge...this could happen to you, or to me.
I'm walking along the Beach the other day. The name of the Beach, and the person I encountered on that Beach, names, are not used, to protect that person, and that Beach. And really it doesn't matter what Beach it was...Right? Anyway, I'm sure you're saying, "Come on b. Malin, just get on with this "Hub tale"
Ok, ok...So I'm walking along the Beach feeling a bit overwhelmed myself, because Lover Man and I have been "Condo" Shopping, for a "little place" with a view of Water, that we could call our own here in Florida. We looked in "Delray" with a Realtor who found us a place that met our requirements. She rushed us to sign a Contract before the end of the year, having faxed it to us THE DAY BEFORE... We said "WHOA...not so FAST"...and it's a good thing we did, because SHE had neglected to tell US, that SAME CONDO we were buying, was also being rented out as of Jan 1st until March 31st..."HUH"? we said... good thing we didn't sign on to buy...for we would have INHERITED a TENANT! Oh and She and the other Realtor a Bonus! We dropped that Realtor.
All of a sudden I'm looking at this guy buried in the sand with his HEAD sitting next to him...Now I'm thinking, what do I say to him..."Hey guy, I think you lost your head"? He saves me the trouble by saying..."Yes, I've lost my head, well not really, I mean it's sitting here next to my body". "So it is" I reply trying to sound like this is a NORMAL sight to see. Meanwhile, he has put his arm around it. "Do you want me to go for Help"? I ask. He replies, "aren't you curious how I wound up like this"? "Well, only if you want to tell me, I didn't want to be nosey", I say. "I've lost my head every now and then, why just the other day"...My voice trails off, because I know I'm beginning to sound silly, and this guy needs help.
He clears his throat, which was an interesting sight to see, and says. "I lost my head in a Business deal, got in over my head...My wife said, I should have told her, TWO HEADS are better than one...Now she's left me and here I am...I actually woke up this morning here...Headless in the sand". I almost wanted to say, this is a joke, right, you're pulling my leg"...But I thought better of it.
"Look I said, I'll go for help, but before I do, would you mind if I snapped a picture of you with my Cell Phone Camera? No one's ever going to believe this". And so I did. As I was walking away he yelled to me, "Hey, what's your name"? "b. Malin, I replied, and yours I said? "Joe" he replied. (Of course that was not his real name). It was at that point that I noticed his head was turned around and FACING ME! "OMG, how did you do that, turn your head all the way around"? He was now smiling at me, as he replied, "I don't know...I guess I'm starting to have a Good Day! Hurry back b. Malin...Hurry back"!
