Mumbles … Anticipate

I want to post Carly Simon, but this is anticipate, not anticipation.  I have thoughts of The Rocky Horror Pictures show and antici … pation, but this is anticipate.  What do I anticipate?  I anticipate my boyfriend (who tested for and does not have Covid) has a sinus infection.  I anticipate Trump will continue to drag his heals about losing the election.  I anticipate lots of anxiety this winter with the virus running rampant.  I anticipate a successful and SAFE wedding for my daughter in January… or maybe that is a hope and a prayer.

I anticipate more loss and pain with the pandemic.  I anticipate fear about a rushed vaccine, or treatment.  I anticipate a rough winter as it snowed twice already in October.  Tonight, the northwest corner of the state is in a winter weather advisory.  I anticipate though, that it will be easier to shovel this winter as we replaced our very old 2 runner and grass driveway.  I anticipate a sigh of relief January 20th on inauguration day. 

So, I think I anticipate some sleep pretty soon and hope for a better day tomorrow.

Anticipation

You come home from work tired

First thing you do is put your feet up

But then you smile at me

With that knowing grin

And I don’t have to ask

I know what is on your mind

I begin to anticipate your touch

To dream of your scent

And look forward to your taste

The night will explode in bliss

All in due time…
