Monday Mimisms ~ Staring Down The Devil

I've been looking out the window lately. Observing how things are working in the world. I thought I'd jot down a few things I've noticed. I am feeling somewhat sassy. I need to clear the cobwebs. A little random writing therapy can't hurt on a Monday.

12 Things I Learned Just Hanging Out the Car Window

1. True friends not only have your back, but occasionally, they may also want to smack the silly out of anyone who hurts you. Of course you don't want them to actually do it, but it means everything that they want to.

2. Almost dying taught me how to toss out the trash in my life.
I need a few more bags.

3.  Mistaking kindness for weakness always comes back to bite those in the butt who make that mistake.

4.  It's easy to tell someone to turn the other cheek when it's not your cheek. Turning the other cheek gets harder when you've done it 2,000 times already. Sometimes the only thing to do is stare down the devil. 

5. I hope the devil doesn't mind that it's his cheek this time.

6. Baby Boy's doodles look like masterpieces to me.

7. I'm ever so thankful that the world is full of more good people than the other kind.

8.  Daddy used to say, "Watch out for that hornet's nest." He knew stirring it up would surely involve a painful sting. On my life lessons wall I've written...If you want to stir up a hornet's nest, prepare to be stung. Thank you, Daddy.

9.  You know your day is not going well when you put conditioner on your hair before the shampoo and publish a blog post without a title all in the span of 30 minutes. Giggling at myself in the shower doesn't make me too silly, does it?

10. Men who know how to kiss are worth a fourth date. Maybe just for the kissin'.

11. A bully can gleefully knock you down 2,000 times and never expect you to get up.
It's 2,001 they have to watch out for.

12. I am not one to hold back. Ever. I'll be damned if I'm going to start censoring now. This is Mimi Writes, not Mimi Mum.

Don't tell Baby Boy I said damn. I forget he can read now...

Sometimes when you look at a neon painting, you notice the bright, blazing, stunning colors ... and forget about the darkness in the background. Sometimes you see a salmon chasing a peace marble in the SEE. Sometimes a giant chikin runs throoo my bedroom late at night. Y'all saw that too, right?

Very wise observations Mimi, very wise. x

Vodka Mom said...

I get knocked down, but I ALWAYS get right back up.

You rock.

Mimi Lenox said...

Hi Mark!
You are short on words today. lol

Mimi Lenox said...

Speedy - "and forget about the darkness in the background" Indeed.

And sometimes you see a kind man who knows how to respect and treat a lady.
Thank you.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - xxooo to you

Vodka Mom - No doubt my friend, no doubt. My money is on you.

MiMi, I've been putting conditioner in my hair before the shampoo for years. It keeps the conditioner from weighing down my hair. And sending out a post without a title? You are just plain human. Thank goodness for that!
Giggling in the shower--yay!

JFF Designs said...

What a neat post. I really like the your words of wisdom. And I won't tell Baby Boy what you said. :)

Ferd said...

I can hear baby boy saying, "damn damn damn damn damn damn damn... " just like his Mimi taught him! LOL
Anyway, that sounds better to me than turning the other cheek. I was never much a fan of that.

Peace to you, too, Mims! :-)

Mimi Lenox said...

Iris - You mean I did it right?!

JFF -Glad my secret is safe with you.

Ferd - Can't you just hear him say that? You are too funny.

Mimi Lenox said...

It seems to me that a person leaving such a statement on a blog under the guise of anonymity is the pussified one.

Assuming you are one of the intelligent ones... why don't you grow a pair and reveal your identity instead of hiding behind you asinine opinions. Pardon the crude speech but fuck it, life is crude.
