ZOMBIES FROM OUR PAST:
Never try to get in touch with an ex lover. Most especially one of those three-month throw way affair participants. They don’t want to hear from you.
People you meet on an island in the Caribbean ? Not a good choice either. Not interested in reuniting fully dressed after days on a nude beach together.
The person in the hospital bed next to you? Say good-bye and good health when they leave the room. We talk too much when we are on happy pills.
Old friends who moved away and never call. They don’t want to hear from you either. They have met new neighbors and have reinvented themselves to fit their new surrounds. Not interested in bringing their city friends to the barn dance.
Your ex-boss who was promoted three times. If he hasn’t contacted you, likely he is looking for NEW talent.
A publisher who has rejected your work without one of those try again notes. Forget it. Hint: Your work is not what he/she is looking for.
Never try to be friends with your ex’s new love. She/he does not really want to be reminded of the trysts you had with her/his honey. Bad idea. Really bad idea!
Mahjong is a fascinating game. Usually played with four persons, it requires both concentration and finesse. Lately, there seems to be a proliferation of smart phones joining us at ‘the table’. In addition to taking up space… they are left on….just in case someone might miss a very important call. Yesterday, two women were in the midst of a game and talking on the phone. I started to snarl. They didn’t care.
I think I might take a baby sitting job and bring some little screamers to the game. Think the others will get the message? Obviously they live for them.
Is it coming to this? Cell phone in the tub too? No rest time…no time out.
