PMS Tea and Genuine Maple Syrup
It is usually a day when, to put it delicately, I am less than my best? When being nice to me is like embracing a porcupine? Dangerous to the initiator of the hug? When I so badly need a hug? I am reminded of Elf, the scene where Buddy hugs the raccoon. I laugh.
I see the violence coming, but I watch anyway. Today, I laugh again at the simple off-beat childlike character. He's clueless and genuine. His love is sticky sweet like the maple syrup he lavishes on every plate of food.
Today, as I touch the unopened packages of PMS tea, I feel time rushing past too quickly. I think about the genuine unfiltered love offered by the movie character Buddy and the burdensome amount of real-life time I spent being a porcupine.
Today, it is time to pass on the PMS tea, not as a weapon of selfish indulgence, but as a reminder to accept all the sticky sweet hugs and genuine love life offers.

This is my 100th blog. I was going to start with that, but it seemed too big a risk. Now, I'm celebrating!
Then, I realize the software counts better than I, it is the 95th.
Now, I need a hug.
