Through A Glass Lightly



Tension Envelopes. See? There it is. Or they they are, to be more grammatically correct.

Oh, don't be so smug.

We're all in some kind of envelope of tension.

At least sometime.

It's just a question of sealing the envelope

or shredding it

or tossing it to the wind

or simply holding it up

to the light

to see what's in there

and nodding, yes, that's all it was, yes.

Laugh.Or....
Else.

My envelope of tension is bursting at its paper seam and cannot be sealed. So I never hold it up to the light for too long because that would drive me crazy. Instead, I continually remove documents from it, only to see more documents appear.

Bills keep just magically appearing in my tension envelope. No matter how many I take out, the envelope is never empty.

I'm busting out of mine, shredding it and tossing it to the wind...then I'll do a happy dance and stomp on the lil shreds that are left!!!!

Peace

Thanks azgoddess...btw, love your site but somehow seems daunting to my lame leftwing mind to comment on or else I'm easily intimidated by change (must be my conservative part...I'm the only person you'll ever encounter -- maybe -- who worked in Goldwater's campaign ANd Mcgovern's!).

Paulie,
Thanks, I did enjoy my few days by the seashore. Now I'm back in the saddle and ready with another Dismaying Story for tomorrow :o)

My tension envelope seems to disappear when I leave work. Magically, it reappears when I get there the next morning. Lots of coffee and great co-workers do help.

"delight in the deception" you said over at Dr. A's blog,,,i liked that...as for tension envelopes...they are very practical, and much needed. HAH HAH!

I dropped my tension envelopes and can't find them for the time being...maybe they'll reappear when the vacation's up.

My tension envelopes went out the window last night shortly after the addition of lingerie, although it was intriqing that my husband was constantly trying to lick the envelope closed.

Oh did I say that? My bad!!!!
