NOTE:  8 years on WP yesterday.  OMG!    🙂

(singing) It’s now or never, come hold me tight, kiss me my darling, be mine tonight-

1
(interrupting) Puh-leaze, stop! Btw, do you know Elvis did that song 57 years ago? We were (mumbling something that sounds like cough, cough, then 10) years old.

2
‘So are the days of’ our li’-

1
(interupting, again) Stop that too! Quit quoting soap operas from the 60’s and 70’s. Next you’ll be using Dark Shadows or General Hospital. Or All My Children or One Life To Live or dread the thought, As The World Turns.

2
Dark Shadows was way cool, vampires and werewolves and ghosts and zombies in a soap opera in the 60’s. Plus paranormal stuff. It’s a gothic cult classic.

1
Yes, yes. If you remember, we never watched any of them. Let’s get to the reason for this post, OK?

2
How can we remember something we didn’t do? And you mean there is a reason for posting, like a ‘Guiding Light’? That sounds serious. I mean, usually we are just fooling around.

1
Look! Just pay attention. Let’s talk about the topic at hand. TIME!

2
Well, when Mickey’s big and little hands point to 12 it’s time for lunch and then a nap, the rest of the day is ‘like sand through’-

1
(interrupting, 3rd time) Not all the time, the time goofing off. I mean, should we be doing something as opposed to just sitting around?

2
Well, that is why we committed to that 8 week deal, no? I mean, we have only ‘One Life To Live’.

1
(rolling eyes) Yes, and that nudges us toward other changes.

2
Gosh, I didn’t know anything was better than goofing off. Well, maybe chocolate. Besides, isn’t that one of the benefits of being retired? Goofing off these remaining days, until ‘The Edge Of Night’.

1
Stop with the soap opera stuff! Retirement is the time to pursue our passions. Besides, we had choco exactly twice these last few months. No, we have some thinking to do. The 22nd is Earth Day too. Do you have a picture for us, btw?

2
You know, Mexican soap operas (novelas) were started to teach history to a poorly educated populace and their early comic books were teaching tools too. And yes, I think I can find something to post.
