Friday Morning

I am going to tell you all a semi-secret. Only three people I know in "real life" know this. But I am going to tell my whole cyber community:

Tonight I am going out on a D-A-T-E with an M-A-N. (I have to spell it or it might terrify me to death!)

So if you are so inclined, please say a prayer for me and the M-A-N. I am glad you can't see my heart rate monitor right now because my heart is really going!

"When AA was quite young, a number of eminent psychologists and doctors made an exhaustive study of a good-sized group of so-called problem drinkers. The doctors weren't trying to find how different we were from one another; they sought to find whatever personality traits, if any, this group of alcoholics had in common. They finally came up with a conclusion that shocked the AA members of that time. These distinguished men had the nerve to say that most of the alcoholics under investigation were still childish, emotionally sensitive, and grandiose." --Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 123

It is ok to say it out loud. How wonderful Mary is going to go on a real date with a man. I am so happy for you. I will pray that you both have a wonderful time this evening.

I am not so sure about that quote how dare they say we are childish, emotionally sensitive, and grandiose. Don't they know who we really are.

I'm giggling--I just wrote a post about being childish and trying to do the grown up thing.

Enjoy your d-a-t-e with this m-an, I found mine giving up the oh like me like me stuff and looked and listened to who is this man?
