I have had some calls for me to speak in public about "Wrinkles, Waistlines and Wet Pants." As I mentioned before, my first one will be for a group of stroke survivors. I am looking forward to that one. I believe that we all need to get perspective on our own lives by realizing what some people live with on a daily basis.So I will plan carefully for this particular group because I need to find out what they would find as funny. My sister, who is an emergency room nurse, will fill me in on what might appear to be funny to stroke victims.
Another group called today. I met them at the Senior Expo and they have a ladies' group that will be meeting for High Tea. Right away I confessed to Esther, my caller, that I am not really a High Tea kind of person, and pretty much devoid of social skills in hoity-toity situations. She assured me that I would be fine. She got to talk to me quite a bit at the Expo and said I will be perfect. "After all," she said. "It's High Tea but we get all the stuff from Publix." So that sounded a little better. So I have to create a decorative hat to wear which I will festoon with items that reflect my book, hmm, some tinker toys, some dietary information, a proctologist's rubber glove and a toilet. We'll see how this one goes.
