Perhaps you've played this game. Your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse lets you have one free pass. One special man or woman who is so attractive and out of reach that if circumstances allowed it, your partner would allow you to sleep with that person. Most monogamous couples feel safe with the free pass rule as it's more theoretical than practical. Still, if your partner gave you a free pass, would you use it? On who?
Okay. I have been married for a really long time. A really long time. This is a stupid game unless your intention is to sow discontent and mistrust. It's a sucker punch waiting to land. More dangerous than -- do these jeans make my butt look big?
What's the one food you feel like you couldn't live without? What's the one food you'd rather die than put in your mouth?
Someone seems very attached to food.
I don't feel that type desperation toward food.
I do have my cravings and preferences however.
What wouldn't I like to live without?
I recently found I could buy my favorite marmalade online after local merchants stopped carrying it. I bought a case. Which will probably do me until I can't eat toast anymore.
What's the one food you'd rather die than put in your mouth?
I don't like squash in any form. Do not try to hide it in bread or cake and expect me to eat it. Probably left over childhood angst from when my parents garden produced a bounty of zucchini and it was at every meal. Gag me.

Besides old rock songs, dictionary definitions and the beach, freedom, to me, is living in one's skin with ease.
Pick a favorite? Don't think I can. But here's one I'm overly fond of.
Sometime During Eternity
some guys show up and one of them who shows up real late is a kind of carpenter from some square-type place like Galilee and he starts wailing and claiming he is hep to who made heaven and earth and that the cat who really laid it on us is his Dad
And moreover he adds It's all writ down on some scroll-type parchments which some henchmen leave lying around the Dead Sea somewheres a long time ago and which you won't even find for a coupla thousand years or so or at least for ninteen hundred and fortyseven of them to be exact and even then nobody really believes them or me for that matter
You're hot they tell him
And they cool him
They stretch him on the Tree to cool And everybody after that is always making models of this Tree with Him hung up and always crooning His name and calling Him to come down and sit in on their combo as if he is THE king cat who's got to blow or they can't quite make it
Only he don't come down from His Tree
Him just hang there on His Tree looking real Petered out and real cool and also according to a roundup of late world news from the usual unreliable sources real dead
Never heard of it until today. Decided to join. Crapped out on the 365 photo deal because I got behind while stranded in Europe and didn't feel like catching up when I made it home. I'm probably working on the busiest month in my life, so why not add this?
