After complimenting my friend M1 on her hysterical and witty writing, she humbly and graciously wrote this back to me:

You are Joan Baez. I'm Johnny Rotten.
You are a fine Cabernet. I'm more of a slurpee.
You are Mother Earth. I am enfants terribles.

You kill me Lady, and who doesn't love a slurpee?

M1 thanked me for inspiring her to greet adversity with humor and grace, and I wrote this back to her:

As far as the humor and the grace, that is my cover. I am pissed, scared shitless, miss my fat boobies, menopausal, and heading towards bipolar or maybe postal, I don't know. Honey, if I wasn't laughing, I'd be crying 24/7 366 and it's just no fun and my mascara runs and I hate how I look doing the ugly cry.

You got me to thinking tonight M1, about the Cabernet thing, and how I view my life now.

Anybody who loves a rich earthy bold red knows that luscious bountiful fruit comes from gnarly old vines.

I think that is what this season of adversity and weathering has done to me.

I'm all twisted and knotty and gnarly now, but look at all this fruit.

Look at all this rich elegant fruit.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your response to M1 and I love both a Cab and a slurpy. I had three tumors removed at 24 yrs old and still in college. I was a late starter in almost every area of my life do to fear and am just overcoming that. Thank you for your words. Come back for a visit. Leslie
