I want to be a lady of leisure

   I've given it a lot of thought and when I grow up, I want to be a lady of leisure. You know, sit in a lounge chair all day, eating bon bons and thinking great thoughts. That's the life for me.

   Don't get me wrong, I have a job I like and I'm good at it, it's just so......job like. I mean, I have to dress a certain way, be there at a certain time and, as if that weren't enough, I have to be productive when I'm there! What are they thinking?

   Every morning when I wake up, before I open my eyes, I think " This is it, this is the day I wake up independently wealthy." Every day, I'm wrong. But I keep hoping.

  Today I decided that I'm not doing anything to become wealthy and that's why I'm not, so it's time to take stock of my many gifts and talents.

  1. I am the best......wait, I'll come back to this one.
  2. See number one.

  That's right, I could not come up with one single thing to help me on the road to wealth and leisure. I'm good at many things, just nothing people will pay me for. I can sing off key like nobody else, I can move my eyes independently, I can still do a back bend, I'm great at rearranging furniture, I can alphabetize my spices ( not that I would, but I could), I know how to use all swear words in their proper context  and hummingbirds like me.

  All important, even vital skills, but not wealth inducing. A google search for wealth opportunities for bendy, swearing friends of hummingbirds yields nothing. Maybe I'm just not wording it right, you know how finicky google can be. I'll try again tomorrow.


  1. If I were rich I would pay you just for being you !!! I love you just the way you are.

  2. I, too, was born to be a lady of leisure....whiling away the day reading and posting blogs.....*sigh* apparently it was not meant to be in this lifetime. Which is why I play the lottery faithfully. Maybe one day.....

  3. sounds good...and when I suddenly become rich as well, I'll buy the house next to you and sit on the porch in a rocking chair and whittle and yell at all the kids in the neigborhood to stay off my grass. Michael C

  4. by the way under number 1.. you hit it right when when you just stopped at "I am the best" cuz' you are. Michael C again.

  5. Dear Sweary, Bendy Friend of Hummingbird,
    You are too funny! I've missed you! Where have we both been? (See how I make this all about both of us...and not just me? It's a talent.)
    That title you gave yourself sounds like something Asian...doesn't it? Maybe you could be worshipped as some sort of exotic goddess? God knows, you can play the role extremely well...I could totally see you doing that.

  6. I've always thought of being independently wealthy. Well, that didn't work out. Then I thought maybe 'depently wealthy'. Hurrmmph! That didn't work out either. But it may for you!


Say it, you know you wanna!
