Atomic Dance…


I want the Atomic Fireball…I really do…but no sooner than I get it in my Jane Carrollmouth…than I am overwhelmed by…the…atomic fireballness…of it…it’s way too spicy…way too hot…so I take it out and drink some water…knowing full well that I will put it back in my mouth in a couple of minutes…

And…that’s exactly what I do…only to be overwhelmed by the intensity of it again…and drink more water…several more times…until…finally it becomes sweet…with only a hint of heat…

Bertha…says it reminds her a lot of my life…there are things that I want…but…when I get them…the intensity can become overwhelming…so I take a step back…then a step forward…then two steps back…then a step forward…until just like with the Fireball…I get to a place that I am comfortable with…a dance of sorts…

Hmmm…I know that’s true of my life experiences…I have big dreams…high hopes…and…they can be overwhelming…so…I back up…

But…Bertha…says that just like the Fireball…it is okay to take my dreams in small tastes…a little bit at a time…regroup and do it again…until…eventually…I reach that sweet center…

PS…the Atomic Fireball just rolled across the keyboard…Bertha…said maybe it would…spice up…my writing…
