Who Do I Want to Praise?
Do you ever get taken by surprise when watching shows with your spouse or significant other or pet? I was watching That Mitchell and Webb Look with my husband and pets the other night. You know how it is: Last night of vacation, laptop, electric mattress pad, wind blowing, had my face all lotioned up, was feeling 95 years young. The Vermont Country Store Catalogue mocks me at times like this ’cause I sure could use some insulated underpants and an electric nose cozy and some of that barfy old-timey marzipan candy with extra walnuts. I’d eat it. I had just huffed a bunch of herbal “Rest Easy” supplements from Whole Foods and exactly nothing. was. happening. “Natural” remedies: I shake my fist at thee.
“All I want to do, All I want to do, All I want to do is praise him.
All I want to do, All I want to do, All I want to do is praise him.
What do I want to do? What do I want to do? What do I want to do?
Who do I want to praise? Who do I want to praise? Who do I want to praise?
