Things Could Be Worse

I’m in Starbucks obsessing over some concerns I have.

I know enough, when I’m in this place, to compose an immediate gratitude list to bail myself out of my ceremonial self-pity.

Before I could whip out my notebook, a woman comes in I happen to know.  She’s 50, if that…tall, stately, with long white hair like a thoroughbred palomino.

I sigh, running my hand through my choppy Bowery Boy cut, when she turns around and I see her ass is the size of Cleveland, one BIG problem I don’t have.

Did I give her a smile.

That God…gotta love’em when he’s trying to make a point, the little rascal.

    Life is full of little surprises. My sisters and I always say that in our twilight years we’ll have a cute guy admiring us from behind as we walk. Then he’ll speed up for a front view and see our shriveled apple-faces. Surprise!

    An arse with its own zip code is not a possession to be prized.
    Just love “ceremonial self-pity”. 😉

  3. It’s the old “someone always has it worse” thing smacking you in the face. I hope it made you smile while I know you felt empathy for the woman who probably couldn’t get rid of it if she starved herself.

  4. Do you give lessons in ceremonial self-pity? I’ll bet yours would be elegant.

  5. It seems like we both have stories where massive asses have given us reason to pause. We have a patient with one of the largest asses on the planet, and as your friend, it’s a surprise because of the upper half. Ironically, she is an office manager for a Gastrologist office, which is much worse than me just hating on my job. I must say, I do envy that level of confidence.

    I had a great laugh one time when one of my daughters at quite a young age dryly quipped ” her ass is so big that even half of it is bigger than the whole thing ” it was so bizarre I could not stop laughing !
