And in case you're wondering, I'm not in need of assistance. This is not a may day call for help! Does anybody really know what May 1st is? What are we celebrating anyway? I think maybe it's flowers.
When we were children, we used to dance the May Pole and wind the pretty colored ribbons all along the pole. Remember that? It's clearly embedded in my memory from childhood because I was the girl who went the way of the boys...
aaahh ya, I was that girl. I single-handedly screwed up our school's May Day celebration and made our pole look funny in front of all the parents of all the children in our school. And you wonder why I have a facial tick...kidding.
And every single person I met, which would have been every single girl I faced, whispered fiercely, "you're going the wrong way!". Well, of course I was well aware I was going the wrong way, but rather than publicly admit my faux paus - I just kept on going.
Yep, just like the Eveready Bunny, I just kept on going.
I have no clear recollection of the events following that dance. I don't. I swear.
I've gotten quite good at blocking out painful events in my life..
So now that April is over and so is my 30 day Blog Challenge - you'll all be well pleased to know that I've failed miserably. Whoohoo!! Seriously, does this surprise you??? But in my defense, I think I've done quite well. I posted a total of 17 times during the month of April!! That is quite good for me. I think there are some years past, that may have equaled my annual total. So I've decided to reward my efforts and stop on the way home and buy myself some flowers. :)
It is after all, May Day...
