In yesterday’s blog, I mentioned how much joy I feel when using a duplicate key that works as well as the original key. Here are some other simple things that bring me joy:
I am playing every day when I shave. Using a small pot as my mug and a shaving brush, I become a little boy playing with my daddy’s shaving stuff. What joy brushing that white gunk on my head and face and then scraping it off! It is a bonus that I also scrape off newly-grown hair.
Urinating In Bed
Do not get the wrong idea. It is not the way it sounds.
You are asleep in a toasty-warm bed. You awaken because you have to pee. How horrible to have to leave your toasty-warm bed to go to the bathroom.
I keep a “pee bottle” by my bed. What joy to stay in my toasty-warm bed and experience relief without having to get up!
Several female friends have told me, “If you were sleeping with me, then I would not allow you to do such a filthy thing! You’d have to get up and go to the bathroom.”
And this brings me to another joy:
There are times when I wish I had a partner, but mostly I am okay with being alone. What joy there is in autonomy! And it helps that I enjoy my own company.
My life is simple with its simple joys. I play with keys and locks. I play when I shave. And I can pee while in bed. Does life get any better than that?
