Growing A Prince

When I think about my love life I think of…nothing.   Translation:  It might happen, someday and if not I won’t lose hairs.   For the first few years after my divorce, my parents assured me that I was going to find a nice man, have a few more kids, and drive a mini-van into my suburban garage where I lived with my typical family.  Today, I finally got the impression that my mother is giving up hope of more red-headed grand babies.

I may have mentioned before, but if not, my mother is a professional care package sender.  I get a box, at least once a month with food items, toiletries, coupons out of the Sunday paper etc.  My mother is also a believer in sending out gifts for every holiday.  This includes the upcoming Valentine’s Day.  I can count on one finger the times I have spent on an actual Valentine’s Day, spent with a boyfriend or husband in a Valentine’s Day manner…and I was 18.  Yes, the special boy who gave me a teddy bear and a giant cookie with frosting spelling out his feelings that only lasted another week or so.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not a V-Day hater.  Some people love it, and I don’t begrudge them their special relationship with the holiday.  And if someday, I am with some one who wants to make it a special day for me and I for them, I will welcome it.

Back to the care package.  I got some tea, Macaroni and cheese, soup, brownies, and a special product called “Magical Grow a Frog to Prince.”  Whee!    My mom actually thought of ME when she saw this sitting on the shelf.  Thanks Mommy!    All I must do is add water to the jar with a frog inside and out will pop my dashing  prince.  The box says the process takes 72 hours, so if I am going to get my royal man by Saturday, I better soak the frog today.

Here he is at zero hour:

    I have the feeling with those little round eyes on the top, your frog prince is going to end up looking like a big green pee-pee and his two friends.

    But you never know.

    Amy- Oh my gosh that comment made me laugh until I cried thank you so much I needed that! I know I am supposed to comment about the blog but that is funny stuff, and well looking at it I kinda agree!)

    Dad thought you needed the prince.

    Just last week my older sister in all seriousness suggested that I marry her gay brother-in-law, adopt some kids and get an annulment because at least that way we’ll both be able to have a child. Apparently my family thinks the only real possibility I have of ever being in a relationship is with a gay man. Doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy?

    I was gonna try to come up with something encouraging and clever, but I can’t top Amy’s Penis Prince comment, so we’ll leave it at that.

    Oh, here’s something…

    Screw Valentine’s Day.
