I sometimes reminisce about young loves and ofttimes wonder, what might have been? I'm usually able to answer my own questions but there are times that I think about what I'd like to refer to as "close calls." Most of my teenage loves can easily be thought of as typical teenage puppy love but once I got into my twenties, it became apparent that some of the girls were literally "playing for keeps."
I've never like being cornered and there were occasions that my girlfriend at the time would stare off into the distance and her next words were "Have you ever thought about getting married and having children?" The first time this question came up in my life, I really had no good answer. My mouth said, "Yes" and my mind said, "Are you crazy?"
From what I could ascertain, at that time of my life, getting married was very much like going to a restaurant with friends. You order what you want, then when you see what the other guy has, you wish you had ordered that. As for kids, my thoughts were that having children was like having a bowling alley installed in your brain.
Nevertheless, there were several times that I came close to getting married at a young age and I occasionally think about those times. Hell, a friend of mine almost married a woman with a wooden leg....but he broke it off. I do admire people who married young, had children and were able to stay married all their lives. I've thought about that, but I'm happy with how everything turned out in my life. But, that's just me.....

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) The illegal immigrant problem continues and although many just merely sneak across the border, some have been here on visas for as long as 15 years. Now, compare that to Blockbuster. You're two days late with a video and those people are all over you. Let's put Blockbuster in charge of immigration. 2) Just think, all the problems we face in America today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian.
3) I think that if you tip the world over on its side, anything and everything that's illegal, loose or useless will land in Los Angeles. 4) My friend bought a self learning record to learn Spanish. He turned it on and went to sleep. While playing, the record got stuck and the next day he could speak Spanish, but with a stutter. 5) Yesterday I saw a chicken crossing the road. I asked it why and it told me it was none of my business.....and that's five!

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Ben and Maude had gotten up in years, and their memories weren't quite what they used to be. They found it beneficial to write things down so as not to forget them.
One evening they were sitting in the parlor and Maude said, "Ben, be a dear and go to the kitchen and fix me a dish of ice cream and put some chocolate syrup and peanuts on it. And, Ben, write it down so you don't forget the peanuts." Ben said, "That's a good idea, Dear."
Ben said, and wrote it on the notepad and headed for the kitchen. Ben was in the kitchen for a while, and returned with a plate of bacon and eggs. Maude looked at it and said, "Oh Ben, you forgot the breakfast toast."
At a Senior Citizen's luncheon, an old and an old lady struck up a conversation and discovered that they both loved to fish. Since both of them were widowed, they decided to go fishing together the next day. The man picked the lady up, and they headed to the river to his fishing boat and started out on their adventure. They were riding down the river when there was a fork in the river, and the gentleman asked the lady, "Do you want to go up or down?"
All of a sudden the lady stripped off her shirt and pants and made mad passionate love to the man right there in the boat! When they finished, the man couldn't believe what had just happened, but he had just experienced the best sex that he'd had in years. They fished for a while and continued on down the river, when soon they came upon another fork in the river. He again asked the lady, "Up or down ?"
There she went again, stripped off her clothes, and made wild passionate love to him again. This really impressed the elderly gentleman, so he asked her to go fishing again the next day. She said yes and there they were the next day, riding in the boat when they came upon the fork in river, and the elderly gentleman asked, "Up or down ?" The woman replied, "Down."
A little puzzled and disappointed, the gentleman guided the boat down the river when he came upon another fork in the river and he asked the lady, "Up or down ?" She replied, "Up." This really confused the gentleman so he asked, "What's the deal? Yesterday, every time I asked you if you wanted to go up or down you made mad passionate love to me. Now today, nothing!" She replied, "Well, yesterday I wasn't wearing my hearing aid and I thought the choices were hump or drown."
That's it for today, my little buttercups. Today's post is brought to you by Oil of Oláy, the favorite oil of Spanish bull fighters. Remember, a married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing. It's Hump Day and happy hour in AREA 51 sounds inviting. More on Friday.
