“Do thou amend thy face, and
I’ll amend my life.”
Shakespeare’s Falstaff to Bardolph in Henry IV, part 1 [III.iii.22-3]
Horoscopes by the Fishing Guide to the Stars starting 12.12
Sagittarius: The comment was, “I bet they don’t have a Hallmark card for that.” I’ll wager you’re right, they don’t. I was joking about how I needed to drop a line, maybe, like an xmas card, to all the “rat-bastard” ex-boyfriends that send me business over the previous year. While this isn’t limited to just males, it does tend to skew in that direction . Still I have a few buddies, one fishing buddy in particular, and he doesn’t have rat-bastard ex-boyfriend, he has an obsession with a waitress at a local joint. She doesn’t know he exists, other than as another customer who frequents the place for short uniforms and tall beers. Again, I seriously doubt it’s the food. I got tired of answering the romance question so I wrote it all down in a book.
It’s our Sagittarius birthdays and spending any portion of it whining about an ex-girlfriend who doesn’t have the decency to return an email, while that’s rude, what did we expect? Birthday! Party! Xmas season is here, for reals! We don’t have the luxury of looking back in the mirror for too long. Just can’t afford it.
I really have to find a card for all those people who don’t return their calls.
Capricorn: I don’t always chat when I’m traveling, but a friendly or even just agreeable nod is an opening for me. I chatted with the guy next to me on the plane. We talked boats and fish, lumber and desert views. We exchanged business cards. Plane took off.
