Ok … so this post was supposed to go up yesterday, but I hadn’t even written it.
That said, I think the gentleman of the day had a grand time, and he’s looking forward to the rest of the year. Last week, he and I had another random conversation. We were talking to a network marketer about her product, and she talked about it’s benefits:
Mr T: Does your product help improve one’s skin? (I was extremely tickled by this question. Regardless of the fact that it was a business presentation, I burst out laughing. Mr. T believes that the skin has the ability to improve itself and has been heard saying that if one uses lotion, s/he is depriving the skin of a wonderful opportunity to do what it should).
Lady: Yes. It prevents breakage of the skin and makes it less tender.
At the end of the presentation, the lady asked if I’d like the product.
Wa Makeri: If Mr. T buys it, I’ll wait to see how his skin looks after he uses the product.
Mr T: (Laughter) Are you sure? Because I thought you would wait for my hair to grow back! (He’s balding … very visibly)
Mr. T, I love you more than words can say … and in celebration of your birthday, this song was stuck on replay in my head.
Thank you for living this song and reminding me always, that living in the present is the only gift I can enjoy without restriction. Wishing you a phenomenal year and many many more.
Anyone who missed my previous birthday tribute (it’s ages old, and was written when the bald was less bold) can read it here
