Trembling

My flesh is trembling with desire,

I reach out for you

And smile a crooked smile.

 

My  alter ego

Bursts into laughter

She takes her full red lips to my ear

And says “get yourself together,

Pleasure is pain and you know it.”

And then she laughs again

“This will only leave you naked,

As soon as he´s torn down your guard

He´ll step on your soul

With dirty rubber boots.”

 

I answer her defiantly

“No pain, no gain!

I´ll give it all, once again

Like I always do,

I never tire,

It´s how you play this game.

 

Let him have my heart

Rip it all out

If that´s what it takes

I´ll try my hand at it.”

A candle-lit get-together

IMG_7965

Yesterday we invited some friends over for a cosy dinner, to laugh away a dark November Sunday. I made boeuf bourguignon and served it with with red wine, French baguette and butter, in my grandma´s china. Now that´s big for me, since I normally can´t even remember to buy napkins, so everybody´s used to gifting me that every once in a while, or else I present them for a big fat roll of toilet paper. 😉  So there was a festive atmosphere, candle light, “magic bubble water” (we finally got ourselves one of these bubbly water machines), wine and beef stew. Throw in a couple of loud friends, a lovable crew the lot of them, Sam at our feet and Beo stealing our seat as soon as it was left unattended for 5 seconds, and you´ve got the perfect recipe for a long night with lots of fun!

A Sunday with mom

My mom got home safe and sound today and the “kids” were happy with their gifts and the funny stories from the big “abroad”.  The white bunny and the pink body went straight home with my niece, but the fur collar beat them all. I decided to give up wearing fur, unless it´s sheep skin, it makes me uncomfortable and my husband embarrassed. It doesn´t make things better by giving it away, but I can´t undo the purchase and at least they won´t risk getting sprayed on in Romania. Enough about that.
