This is one comment on my post “Conditions.” that I missed while indisposed. This is from Bunc, all the way from Ayrshire. Rum is unusual there, what with so much of the good stuff – Scotch available!
“There once was a chap called Rum
Who suffered a condition called glum
Not wanting for cash and in good health to last
yet he pined for a non-plato chum
So he cast his net wide and the females he tried
The large and the small and the plump
But he hasn’t yet found in this casting around
The one who can cure his chum slump.
Don’t give up we all cried your libidos not yet fried
There’s bound to be one who’s out there
You’ll once turn a corner and there she’ll be for ya
a lady all willing and fair.”
Bunc, In India, we respond for such good wishes by saying “Aap key moohn mein ghee shakkar.” Literally, “I wish you get a lot of sugar and clarified butter in your mouth.” In other words, “Many thanks for your sweet wishes and I hope that they come true.”
Today’s Loose Bloggers’ Consortium topic “Conditions” has been chosen by Grannmar who must have an Ace up her sleeve with this topic as, it took me a long time to figure out just what to write. As I am wont to under such conditions, I decided to let my Muse take over and here is what she wrote.
Primarily, my conditions are:
The most important, Financial. Reasonably good with some money in the bank, a roof over my head all paid for and of much higher value than what I paid for; a regular pension that can keep my body and soul together and a small agency that gives some icing on the cake every month.
The next in importance, Health. This can be subdivided into physical, mental and dental.
• Physical: Other than my replaced/revised hip joints, in reasonably good condition.
• Mental: I think that I am sane. That opinion however, is not shared by most people who know me, including some regular readers.
• Dental: I wear one partial denture and two caps covering four other teeth. I have recently lost one wisdom tooth after extracting which, the dentist gleefully told me that the last wisdom I had has now been dispatched to the garbage heap.
The next in importance is Relationships. All current relationships are satisfactory but all are platonic. Sad. I am however still hopeful.
The condition of the environment in which I live in is also satisfactory. I live in a city that is growing but in a suburb that is away from the hustle and bustle of the center. It is peaceful and the residents are friendly and helpful. All facilities are available within walking distance. The climate is salubrious and the city is the preferred destination for retirees.
My Muse has stopped writing.
