Life Among the Never-Winged

Once upon a time I was writing a book called, "Just Another Love Letter", about angels behaving badly. Now I just quietly ask myself each day, "What the hell am I doing?"

My friends always knew I was going to hell. My only hope is that God likes good jokes and bad redheads.

    Seventeen years ago today, I stepped out of a car onto Colorado soil for the first time, running from one thing and chasing another.

    I went to a party and met a guy draped in an Irish flag and in dire need of aspirin.

    The rest is history.

    Wow, you met listening to the Pogues!

    And it's been nothing but Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash ever since, huh?

    Happy Anniversary!

    That was quite funny, rudi.

    Wasn't it a puke-drenched Irish flag? Or has my devious imagination added that detail?

    Happy Anniversary!

    Yeah, I had heaved on meself, the flag and out the top level of a double decker bus. Supposedly, that one landed (splattered?) into the open window of a car below. And into someone's purse in the aforementioned unfortunate car (supposedly I didn't see where it landed).
    Friend R did me one better, by puking all over the place, including one good shot down the spiral staircase of the bus.
    When R's Dad apologized to the trip organizer for bringing us along (we were both underaged), he said that we weren't as big a problem as the group of guys who took a collective piss at the back of the bus.

    Prince Charming, no?

    She kept me anyway. (I had changed my clothes. It had to help some).
    R was best man at our wedding.

    Happy anniversary to you, too, babe.
    Love -O-

    PS - any Pogues geeks out there who remember what they played on SNL that night?

    Seems St. Paddy's is a popular occasion.....Missus Chica's sister met her future spouse then, only she was the one in need of aspirin.

    Congrats on your good fortune Nancy! I toast you....though maybe a day late and a dollar short, and wee bit early to drink even if you are Irish..

    Rudi, honestly. *Rolling eyes* It's been MOJITOS, Sodomy and the Lash.

    No, Clowncar, your memory is as sharp as a tack. Maybe it wasn't drenched, but it was certainly violated.

    Sláinte, Schmoopie! Saol fada chugat!

    O, _I_ don't even remember what the Pogues played that night. :-)

    Thanks, Duck! Happy volcano-climbing!

    Yeah, um, it WASN'T love at first sight, Meno. It took time. About seven days. :-)
