    Hmmmm. But you sound SO easy to live with! Realize, though, that this is coming from someone who didn't marry until I was almost 50 - and didn't live with my now husband (or any other partner, for that matter) until I was 40. Boy, did THAT take some adjusting and learning to let go and lighten up!!

    If I had a dime for every time someone implied I was bitter, uptight, mean, "the devil", a bitch or cold then I'd be the richest man alive. Maybe I can find a way to profit off of being a misanthropist.

    Trust me I've tried. If I could bank 'wicker' (Bajan for lesbo), ice princess, hard hearted, and my fave 'unmannerly bitch' I'd be putting The Donald out of business. The more I can ruffle the feathers the better I feel.

    My orchids hate me, apparently. They won't bloom and they're beginning to be more of a nuisance than anything else.

    Ahh bull, you just blowin' smoke. You love them plants more than some people. Go give a hug an tell you're sorry. They'll bloom, they just stubborn like their owner.

    get a squirt gun. they say you can't train a cat. but yes you can. after a few days, all you have to do is reach for the squirt gun and they know to not do what they were just about to do.
