30DW2-2 - Day 4: Friendship

To My Best Friend

She's a lover and a wife
And she's my friend for life
She makes me laugh, she makes me smile
She keeps me happy all the while

And when I'm sick she tends to me
And makes me well for all to see
And when I'm sad she cheers me up
And lets me sip from her loving cup

Sometimes I'm in a bit of a funk
And I might get a little drunk
But she just laughs and holds my hand
And reminds me that our life is grand

What have I done to deserve such love?
Was she sent to me from heaven above?
Just what the heck does she see in me?
Man, I'm as lucky as can be

I can't help but love her too
There's nothing else for me to do
Our love is genuine, our love is pure
And I know our friendship will endure.

Sigh, pass the Kleenex and after you've dried your eyes trot on over to Nicky and Mike's and follow the links to see who's doing what to whom today.

Dufus, you are a romantic, well, doofus. And it's endearing, and lovely to hear. I salute you and your good lady. Indigo
nonamedufus said…
I am. Hopelessly.
mike said…
Damn, good thing I bought all that Kleenex.
nonamedufus said…
Damn straight. It's like you can see into the future!
Linda R. said…
That is so sweet. She'll need the kleenex, too, when she reads this.
nonamedufus said…
I wonder if Mike will sell me some.
Ziva said…
Awwww! Dufus! This is absolutely wonderful. You're a lucky man and she's a lucky woman.

I can't help but wonder if "sip from her loving cup" is some kind of weird euphemism, though. ;)
nonamedufus said…
Nah, it's just something I came up with to make it rhyme. ;)

You're trying to get laid this month, aren't you?
nonamedufus said…
Every little bit helps, my friend.
Cheryl said…
AAAAAWWWWW...that is so sweet.
babs (beetle) said…
What a lovely husband you are. I'm sure she feels as lucky as you do :)
meleahrebeccah said…

My heart just completely melted.
nonamedufus said…
We'll see after something else I wrote appears later this week.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, thanks, Meleah. I'm looking forward to her reaction.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Ah... the marvelous Maryse! I heart her, too!
P.J. said…
Wait.. what?

Did someone take the login info from Dufus?

Holy smokes. Getting all soft and stuff. Who knew?

That being said ... very nicely done. :)
nonamedufus said…
Hey, I saw her first!
nonamedufus said…
At my age when you say "getting soft" I tend to take it personally.
P.J. said…
No worries. At your age, you'll forget I said it in 15 minutes anyway. ;)
Laughing Mom said…
Sweet...but I'm mystified at the lack of punniness.
nonamedufus said…
No puniness today. This is an affair of the heart.
Nicky said…
"What have I done to deserve such love?"

You must have been good in a previous life, Dufus. And maybe a little bit in this one too. :-)

After reading the only thing I could think of writing is, congratulations.
KZ said…
You, sir, sound like the luckiest man on the face of this earth. I think some of that good luck has rubbed off on your best friend. May your friendship endure for a long time to come.
nonamedufus said…
Actually, I pretended to like her cat. Seriously.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks. I'm a very lucky guy. I think I got the better deal in this relationship.
nonamedufus said…
Couldn't agree with you more. I'm one lucky guy.
nonamedufus said…
I can be romantic when I wanna be. Imagine.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
