Inner Peace

My buddy Stiffy sent me this email which I found to be quite humorous. I modified a few things to match my own tastes. What do you need to finish?

CALMNESS IN OUR LIVES

I am passing this on to you because it definitely works, and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace.

Dr Phil proclaimed, 'The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished.' So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished.

Before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Pinot Grigio, a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin, a package of M&M's, the remainder of my old Ativan prescription, the rest of the Girl Scout Cookies, some chips, and a package of peanut butter cups.

You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now. Pass this on to those whom you think might be in need of inner peace.

It's probably a good thing that you're not the one who had the leftover taffy from last summmer or else you would have had to eat it all before you left the house!

.... and what about those leftover individually wrapped chocolates from last Christmas?!?

LOL

Hmmm, I am SURE I have some rum somewhere . . .

That is terrific! Great advice.

Hey Rubye Jean - I laughed too when my buddy sent me this.

I felt like I needed a stint in Promises rehab with Lindsay after writing this. But I did giggle!

I'm eating those chocolates today for breakfast Blondie.

Mr. Moto - is that you leaving the rum comment? No more rum! At least on a cruise ship anyway. In the backyard would be ok.

CJ said...

Hey Karen - At least the food part sounded good to me and might be something I would actually do. Not so sure about the pinot and the gin combo.

Mr. Moto said...

Yup, that was me!

CJ said...

Anytime Lynt. Today I think I will work on finishing the Sam Adams that is in the fridge.

I finished off a Special Reserve Port last night and some Concannon Pinot Noir - I feel good also. I love Dr. Phil.

Tonight I have to finish something I haven't yet started... my Tuesday Haiku.
