My recent grocery list: honey, jalapenos, tortillas, bananas, eggs, butter n chz, tortillas chips, cinnamon bread and regurgitate (?) My friends were helping me shop and asked what was next on my list and read ‘regurgitate’. LMAO! O my the looks I got from them! After laughing I told them I wrote that word down because I wanted to use it in a future column. I carry around a little notepad because I have to jot down whatever is in my head at the moment or I lose it. It was so absurd that they both pulled their phones out and took a pic of my list. Since then my friends have not let it go, teasing me.

I was looking for an old truck someone had told me about and I thought I had the right place. She slowly stepped out of the house into the hot summer sun. She was thin and pale and I didn’t recognize her until she spoke.
