Has One Lesbo Escaped the D – I – V – O – R – C – E ?  Thanks Katie!

If you’ve been following 2 Lesbos Goin At It you know that Katie has been voted as our cutest reader; however, unless you’ve read the comments you may not know that Katie has been giving this One Lesbo some tips.   And actually, I kinda sorta think it probably possibly worked

. . . a little.

Lovely spouse and I had a fantastic evening.   We did not have even the hint of an argument.  Katie tells me that if every day I will express the things that I’m grateful for that I’ll see some positive results.  The power of positive thinking  . . . a skill that I must have lost over 10 years – 6 spent in mommy-hood.  So, maybe just maybe my anniversary card served the purpose yesterday. 

Have any of you seen The Secret?  I have not but I did sell about 200 of them – does that count?  Anyway, my customers tell me that it suggests that if you are positive and visualize/verbalize what you want, then you’ll get it. 

But if I follow this course I’ll probably end up like this guy I read about.  The guy goes into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders. The guy says, “A hamburger, fries and a coke,” and turns to the ostrich. “What’s yours?” “I’ll have the same,” says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress returns with the order. “That will be $9.40 please,” and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.

The next day, the guy and the ostrich come again and the guy says, “A hamburger, fries and a coke.” The ostrich says, “I’ll have the same.” Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with the exact change.

This becomes routine until the two enter again. “The usual?” asks the waitress. “No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad,” says the man. “Same,” says the ostrich.

Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, “That will be $32.62.” Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table.

The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. “Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?”

“Well,” says the man, “several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there.”

“That’s brilliant!” says the waitress. “Most people would ask for a million pounds or something, but you’ll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!”

“That’s right. Whether it’s a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,” says the man.

The waitress asks, “What’s with the ostrich?” The guy sighs, pauses and answers, “My second wish was for a tall chick with lots of junk in her trunk and long legs who agrees with everything I say.”

So . . . Katie thanks for the tips.  And while I did not get anything near 20 minutes of loving, I did manage to get a hand on my leg (her hand – not my own) while watching I Survived a Japanese Game Show and she gave me a good-night kiss on the cheek.   Not bad on our 8th Civil Union anniversary and coming from a lovely spouse who announced she wanted a

D I V O R C E  on July 4 . . . is that why they call it Independence Day?
