True Confessions

Some nights
after the lights are off
 I fall asleep
while my husband talks to me
Sometimes
I wake myself up
and he doesn't even notice
Other times
I start to snore.

-----------------------------------------------------

I ate an entire box of Better Cheddar crackers
in one day
This happened more than once.

-----------------------------------------------------

People say
I'm a good listener
This is true
This is also true:
Sometimes
I pretend to listen
while my mind is elsewhere
I am good at this.

I relate to it all - the box of crackers, the listening.......and I am cracking up - at the same time feeling comradely towards - the mouse off to the right lifting the bar off his chest. Hilarious. Some days I am the one eating the crackers. Some days I am the mouse.

i think i'm a good listener and a good observer. as the middle kid of nine siblings i developed this skill set. my good listening came from listening carefully to mamasitas singing and songs.

ok, i admit it, i'm thief of anything chocolate. i'm a 'chocoholic'. been trying to get 'help' for this condition but can't find any psychologists that will tackle this challenge.
