before i got married, in fact before i even knew who Jerry was, i would hang out with my girlfriends from the 1031 hub (including Sum, our honorary hub-mate) and talk about a myriad of things (most crossing way over the line). but every now and then we'd talk about what the guy's would be like that we might marry
it usually went something like, "Dawn, what do you think your husband's gonna say about those ugly boxers you wear all the time?" or "Lauren, do you think your husband will appreciate how those frayed sweatpants go with that retainer?" but often we talked about what we thought was Luscious.
if you don't know what i mean by Luscious you need to look no further than "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" one of our classic faves. while in this movie you could mistakenly take Luscious to mean chiseled abbs and a gorgeous smile, however the true definition (by 1031 standards) looks more like stepping up to the plate and doing what needs to be done with an attitude of commitment, humility and joy.
now let me get back to present day (present day being Memorial Day). my car who's approaching it's 9th birthday let me know with the sad glow of a light that it's alternator and serpentine belt were about to go out.
as in right now.
luckily "now" took place under our car port-
where my husband was able to work on it.
in the middle of the hot day.
and fix it.
now that's Luscious.
ps. i would like to give a loud shout out to Kevin Bailey who loving came over to bear with my husband in the hot sun. watch out ladies, that move was also Luscious!
