READY TO INCITE? – Marilyn Armstrong

INSIGHT IS NOT INCITE – BUT THEY SOUND THE SAME


Sometimes, you just have to love this language. I do not feel insightful, but I could probably incite a riot. I know it’s merely a homonym. Not the same word except by sound, but I feel very non-insightful.

I want is to win a lot of money so I can fix the house. I want my life — for the first time ever — to become easier.

I’m not sure when I started believing when you got older, things slowed down and you could relax, surrounded by caring family who would take care of your needs and maybe even a few small luxuries.

That has not exactly been how it worked. I’m just pissed about the whole “getting old” thing. Why doesn’t someone else cook dinner? Why are we both still scrubbing and vacuuming and cleaning? Why does the house persist in requiring maintenance and repair? What’s WRONG with this picture?

Round up the angry mob. Let’s skip insight and go directly to INCITE!

Who’s with me?

  1. Problem being things are not always as they seem. They told me to marry a Swiss, they have gold bars under the bed and numbered bank accounts. There is nothing under the bed, because it is all sealed in and all bank accounts are numbered, even mine. I need the number for the computer.

  2. ME! I’ll “stand” with you to incite good changes! (well as long as I CAN stand that is…I think you & I would run things from a seated position…) 😉 Good day to you, Marilyn! 🙂

    1. I always lose my appetite in warm weather and I have had zero enthusiasm for cooking recently. Poor Garry who refuses to even make a stab at cooking, staring at me hopefully and finally saying: “Macdonald’s?” That’s his form of cooking. He was very big on eating out, but these days, there’s nowhere to eat (terrible food locally) and no money anyway. Poor lad.

      Yeah. Dusting, vacuuming, dishwashing, laundry, cooking, shopping, and of course, the dawgz. I’m too OLD for this.

      1. Boy! did you ever think the day would come when you’d say “I’m too OLD for this”? Tell Gary I feel for him and understand completely. This shit makes you lower your standards considerably.
