183/365 Let’s Misbehave

They say that spring means just one thing
To little lovebirds
We’re not above birds—Let’s misbehave!
It’s getting late and while I wait
My poor heart aches on
Why keep the brakes on? Let’s misbehave!

I miss Helen. Not in the “Hey, Helen, let’s you and I misbehave” sort of way, but I always felt I had a like-minded, utterly base buddy out there whose mind would find double entendre anywhere the slightest whiff of it lurked and for whom single entendre could inspire the running of a celebratory mile.

Of course, she’s out there reading and commenting, thank god, and she’s utterly honest about her need to take a break and announces it. I appreciate that. So I still get to be around her wit a bit. But when you’re writing as well as she is in public, I say, hey, get a blog.

Here’s Cole Porter for Helen (and just the slightest bit for Sewa Yoleme, because he loves it so).

If you want a future, darling,
Why don’t you get a past?

Wow, is that singer fabulous, or what?!

As are you, of course.

I miss Helen's blog too!

Helen said...

You are too kind, and yes, fabulous. Perhaps once I get everything on my to-do list done, including getting a past, I can start a new blog called Base Notes.

H: Base Notes? Ah, once again you trump me, my dear. I wish I'd thought of that!

M: (Thank you for chiming in. Maybe one of these days peer pressure will work.)

SY: Yeah, kind of fun to discover that ysabellabrave/MaryAnne. She's got a whole THING going on there. Check out some of her other stuff when you have time. (And thanks.)

Helen is in her office, sighing heavily, shaking her head, riffling through papers and otherwise trying to look WAY busy, a-la George Kostanza.

Am I fooling anybody?

I should try to disguise these blogs as some sort of database. Perhaps if I invented a blog "outfit"(tailored for whatever type of work the individual is supposed to be doing), I could get rich quick.

I'd buy it. If I could afford it. On that note, maybe I better get back to work.
