Sometimes even I amaze myself.
On Saturday I had to move my home office furniture to my storage unit. The size of the pieces required me to move up two sizes to a bigger space to hold the furniture as well as the items in my smaller unit.
While there with a male friend (T), another storage tenant who is directly across from my old space came to swap out his motorcycles. T and he got to talking about cycles and such while the young guy put air into the tires of his stored cycle. T came back to me and said it might be a good idea to ask if we could use his air compressor to fill my bicycle tires which had deflated over the winter so that I could use it this summer.
I agreed, so T goes over to him, asks, and sure enough he’s happy to do it. I roll my bicycle his way and we start chatting it up as he starts working on the tires. Knowing NOTHING about motorcycles, I lean toward him and say – actually quite loudly because I have to be heard over the air compressor…are you ready for this?...NO, seriously – are you READY?
“So, how big is your unit?”
As soon as I said it, I wanted so badly to reel those words back in, but out into the stratosphere they went.
His head pops up, he smiles and says, “Oh, my storage unit? *chuckle, chuckle* It’s a 10’ x 15’.”
Y’all need to keep me off the streets, I swear.

Oooooops, just a slip of words but funny as hell.
I find I can get by with "slips" because of my age. You don't need to be kept off the street just always remember the innocent older lady face.
Then give a little laugh. leave them wondering...
They will be thinking ,"Does she know what she said??"

It's my life now, my choices, my mistakes to make and my victories to celebrate. His choices made me free of liars and betrayers in my life. That is priceless.
