Everything Done In the Dark
Since my not-so-squeaky-clean past, I now live in truth – especially when the laws that govern life dictate that somehow what we do in the dark will come to light. So, as I watched Leroy Greer’s NBC Today Show appearance this morning, I was embarrassed for him. Mainly because he hasn’t come to the realization that whether he’s wrong or right, he’ll ultimately be viewed as an ass. As the story goes, Greer was in the midst of a divorce when he decided to send his then girlfriend a dozen roses using 800-Flowers. He alleges, asking and double-checking that no receipts, information, etc. would be sent to his residence where he lived with his wife. To his horror, he says 800-Flowers sent a Thank-You card that was received by his wife. She called 800-Flowers asked for the receipt of the transaction and – BAM! Affair revealed! Now, Greer’s wife is adding infidelity to the divorce – a tidbit that has added another $300 thousand dollars to her settlement request. Greer is suing 800-Flowers for $1 million dollars citing pain-and-suffering among other charges.
Mixing Our Coloreds
BD and I have moved to stage 2 of this whole thing called dating and laughed as we planned to do our wash tonight. He asked if I would be mixing my color wash with his and I warmly agreed the idea seemed like a great one. So I’m packing my color clothes basket, some sandwiches and playing cards as we hit the Laundromat for a spin-cycle kind of evening. I warned him that I would be taking a Ziploc bag to keep one of his well-worn drawers for sleep-and-sniff value. Yeah, yeah…I’m a freak of sorts.
Toning for Sissies
I’m not one for heavy weight-lifting and never was a fan of bulging muscles – on myself or others. I do, however, love a toned body and concentrate on my cardio and the crunch, pull-ups (chin-ups) and very basic circuit training. I’ve begun increasing my weights on many of the circuit training and the intensity that I do the pull-up repetitions for. I’m pleased with the results, but my recent days off to vacation and enjoy my birthday have me slightly pained and winded. I’m back in there full force now and hope to get back on track to enjoying the workouts. BD called me this morning to mention that he’s considering joining my gym and I’m glad he’s considering working out. I enjoy his body all the same, but I think he’d feel more comfy with himself if he began breaking it down; besides, I’d like to see him huff-and-puff from another angle.
Leroy Greer is not the only infidel in America, but he’s likely to find he will be tried in the court of public opinion before his case finds resolution.
Do you believe 800-Flowers is at fault for divulging info to the Greer household or do you believe the point is moot, since Greer was engaged in a deceptive affair?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
