Anni which means never forget
ver which means or
sary which means your life is in peril.
As my mind wanders back through the crags, past foggy curtains and through the dusty unused corners of my brain, a few thoughts surface, glimmering like a school of anchovies swimming through the oil clogged surface of the Gulf of Mexico.
Back then he was the man of my dreams...
He interrupts my dreams with his snoring and I, in turn interrupt his dreams with the gentle stirring of the covers as I unconsciously set free my extraneous air in a ladylike manner.
Back then he made my heart race...
We race for the remote and as our hands touch he frantically tries to find ESPN as I search for Law and Order reruns and after the melee we fall, panting on the couch, our hearts beating like the jungle drums on the NatGeo channel.
Back then we thought that love made the world go round...
We know that love of underbaked chocolate chip cookies with a dollop of Dreyers double vanilla ice cream make both the world and our bodies go round.
Back then we thought that love was blind
We are both blind without our stinkin' glasses and grateful to be blind on a more or less regular basis.
Just kidding, neither of us was ever that stupid.
