silver lining

for multiple reasons, the past week has been a lesson in finding the good in any situation. in this vain, five major post-wilma, silver lining moments:

1* a week vacation, with temps in the 70s and cool breezes in sunny south florida

2* the look of sheer relief – and near bliss – on the dogs’ faces once they finally were able to go outside to relieve themselves once the storm ended

3* getting a bag of ice without having to queue up

4* good friends who have electricity and are willing to share their home. among other things this means: coffee; a hot shower; and fresh, steamed broccoli and homemade mash potatoes, after four days of chips and pb&j sandwiches

5* a gaggle of lesbians crowded around a 13-inch tv rigged with a coat hangar for reception get so rowdy watching florida state football on a saturday afternoon that a neighbor asks (not-so-nicely) for them to pipe down. the response: oh, leave us alone you aNgRy QuEeN.
