I’d like to thank Lady Glamis for introducing me to onetruemedia.com. She said it was easy, and I had so much fun selecting the music and the photos. It didn’t take long and it was FREE. Try it, and I’d love to see and hear what you think of the program. These photos were taken last year in May when I went back for a visit on the island of Ambergris Caye. My snippet of our life below is from the mainland where we lived for the first two months.
Duke and I made an agreement. He would put clean sheets on our bed while I scrubbed the dirty dishes and pans with our sulfur reeking well water.
Hearing his snores all the way from the living room, I tiptoed towards our bedroom where I found him collapsed in bed. To my horror I saw the pale yellow sheets stretched over our uneven mattress. Instead of using our soft California sheets, Duke had grabbed the itchy polyester set from the top open shelf. Those were infested with gecko, mice and cockroach poop and despite my sweaty body, I refused to place a millimeter of my skin inside them. How could he not smell them?
There was only one thing to do. I had to wake him up.
“Those aren’t the sheets I asked you to put on the bed Duke,” I whispered in his ear.
“I’m sorry, but I refuse to sleep in those icky sheets.”
“They’re clean” he said.
“No, they’re filthy. I won’t sleep in them. I want the ones from California.” So Duke got out of bed and helped me change them without a single complaint. Had he woken me up to change the sheets, I’d have been so mad.
Has something like this ever happened to you? How would you react?
I’d love to hear your stories, comments or any other questions related to this topic. I’d like to get a discussion going on BELIZE BUZZ Wednesday.
