tired of trash
And she caught him by his garment, saying, Lie with me: and he left his garment in her hand, and fled, and got him out.
like Joseph of old
sometimes you just have to know when to go
not just amble, but run
i just threw a book in the trash
attempting to overlook the language
some sleazy talk
thinking...that's got to be it
here's the deal,
i loathe waste
i am someone who scrapes every last bit of mayo and peanut butter out of the jar
or saves the foil from baked potatoes to reuse
or turns off the lights in empty rooms... or the water aimlessly running
slow to turn on the air conditioner when it's hot
or the heater in the Fall
i painted this phrase over one of my kid's closets,
"wear it out, use it up, make it do or do without."
i've probably spent four hours
and wasted eight or nine bucks
to be insulted
it took until page 94 to finally think
"this is not good for you"
this book came highly recommended
albeit a blog site
i thought we would share similar standards
hey, i'm not a prude
and she's not bad
"if there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report, or praiseworthy ...
we seek after these things."
whewh, now i'm smiling and feeling much better
