|After I had imbibed on the words |
deliciously served by CJ on his blog
Rambles from My Chair (found here), I was struck
with the urgent need to possess my own
Concise Oxford Dictionary!
Now to see if I could afford to own this treasure.
Off I go to my favorite site Amazon.com.
There I am pleased as punch to find it at a reasonable price.
I click on "Buy now with one click",
record it in my check register...then store the memory who-knows-where
in the land of my brain.
Two days later while my granddaughter
and her dumpling are visiting,
we hear someone at the door, but no one enters.
I proceed to open the front door and see a package.
Said visitor asks me, "What is it, Grams?"
I reply that I don't remember what I ordered.
I rush the mystery package over to the counter
so that I can rip it open.
When I spy my new treasure, I blurt out, "Oh, it's here!"
Granddaughter sighs, "I don't know anybody else who
would be so excited at getting a dictionary in the mail."
What can I say?
It's the little things in life that bring truth to
the song "Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries."
