...AND a bag of chips!

Recently, I bumped heads with a fellow whose sense of humor I did not share. He probably thought he was witty. I found him crass.

Somewhere in the back-and-forth silliness between us, he suggested that perhaps I thought too much of myself...so I began to ruminate on my assets and liabilities.

Well, I am a queen-sized woman - to put it gently. That could be a negative for some gents, though it doesn't bother me a bit. I'm nearing 40, have difficulty settling into a specific career path, and - if those personality things are right - am romantically compatible with about 3% of the population. And to top it all off, I happen to like a variety of sexual partners which, for some - including the guy I'm writing about - that makes me a slut. In some folks' way of thinking, the only thing worse than a slut is a murderer. Ah, well.

On the plus side, I donate a minimum of 10% of my gross income to charity and have done so since I was 16. I've written and published four books of poetry, coach a step-team, read the Bible (in Latin) to old nuns at my alma mater, arrange clean-up days at the local park, and throw barbecue parties for the neighborhood kids to keep them out of trouble. I go shopping for and with my elderly neighbors, cook for funerals (even if I don't know the family), teach children and adults to read, and - when I'm bored - invent ways to get ADD/ADHD diagnosed kids to learn. And, most of the time, I look damned fashionable while doing this.

PLUS, I date very actively.

Hmmmm....now that I'm looking at all of this. Maybe, just maybe - no...definitely....

I AM all that...and a bag of chips!
