What is Your Favorite Age And Guiltiest Pleasure At That Age And Now?
What is your favorite age and guiltiest pleasure at that age and now? Welcome to Tuesday's Question and thanks to all of you for your continued support!
This weeks question deals with cheap thrills and guilty pleasures, the likes of which we share among friends who will not judge us and love us anyway... we hope. You can answer a piece, part, or all of the question, just be sure and have fun while you're answering it. Here's my answer:
My guiltiest pleasure now is ice cream, wine, and more ice cream. I have been known to sneak a cigarette from time to time. I know, I know, cigarettes are terrible and I stopped smoking years ago, but I enjoy one occasionally especially with an old friend mulling over old times... or a new friend, beginning new times, or with a class of wine ...
My favorite age or ages are 22, 27, and now. When I was in my twenties I loved to dance in water fountains, make believe I was other people in public, and ring doorbells then run when someone answered. Yes, my ex husband and I actually rang door bells when I was 23 and pregnant with our son. He was the getaway driver and I rang the bells. Although most of the time, he left me standing outside or running after the car when someone answered the door. We also danced in public water fountains, and pretended to be other people with real estate marketers. Sometimes real estate marketers looked for tourists to buy and sell property in our hometown. They gave out gifts of money or dinner to couples who would go on their property tours, so this is the time I'm speaking of when we pretended to be different people.We didn't just walk around pretending to be other people, that would be weird. Now that I've embarrassed myself, what childish antics are you or were you up to, and what is your favorite age?

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
