Alternate Incarnations

Posted on

Her love was of the type more quietly known than externally expressed, like a
1950’s father who knows best- the type who loves you with spankings
and admonishment, but keeps a job he hates so that you can go to
a good college and get a job you might hate and
support your own family someday.

If she were a 1950’s father, she’d have drunk heavy-bottomed
tumblers of a thick whiskey, and her stories would be told best
by the clinking ice cubes left behind.

Her love was restrained and curt, as if she were a
1950’s housewife who never left her home without a hat pinned on straight and
matching bag and shoes and when she kissed you, her lipstick
never rubbed off on you because her mouth barely grazed yours.  Her kisses
could be counted on.

If she were a 1950’s housewife, she would never add salt to your food, for
fear of the hypertension you might someday suffer from. It would be bland
food, with kind intentions. She believed in living long.

Everyone loves in a unique way. Of all the people in the world,
she chose me
to love in hers.

  1. Just like lemons, oranges also contain citric acid
    which makes them excellent natural skin whiteners. Are you a surfer,
    the Bikini Top allows you to drop you board in the back, proceed to the seashore and then its snatch and go.
    There are many great maternity swimwear options available for the expectant mother, but it can be a bit overwhelming trying to find that perfect swimsuit that
    will make one look and feel amazing. Communicate with women that became a brazilian bikini wax made
    by this salon.
