I Ate the Whole Thing

My Burris secret buddy gave me a peanut butter heart for Valentine’s Day. You all know how much I love peanut butter, and that I can’t eat it at home because of Bec’s death sentence, so I opened the heart with a little gleam in my eye. Well, probably a little more than a gleam, and I broke off one serving (one quarter) of the heart and placed it gingerly on my tongue. In that moment, I experienced all the deliciousness that Reese’s has to offer. I let every nuance of the peanut butter and the chocolate ruminate in my mouth until I couldn’t stand it anymore. I ate the whole thing. In one sitting. All 720 calories worth. And, damn was it ever satisfying.

I didn’t feel so bad about eating the entire heart because I knew I was going to go play racquetball this evening. What a blast! Kellie and I are pretty evenly matched, but she is a tennis player so she has a slight advantage. In fact, she won all four games, but we got a good hour long workout and had fun to boot. She also got to see my amazing catlike skills at ball chasing. Apparently, I have a difficult time locating the ball and then catching it. She says I look just like Tom from the Tom and Jerry cartoons. Minus the bulldog, it’s a bit like this:

Tomorrow I am teaching Rachel’s class because she is snowed in again in Columbus or Germantown or wherever she lives.


I am thankful for friends who are as wacky as I am.

Seeing the crowd, Jesus went up on the mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them. He said: Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you.
