Let Your Outrageousness Come Out and Play!
I’ve had quite a few inquiries regarding how each of us can become just a little Outrageous. Now, I haven’t cornered the market on being outrageous, but I do remind myself to let my outrageousness come out and play, as often as possible. I have found that if I remember, and I am just a little outrageous, I end up having fun and my day is good… and in some cases, it’s excellent! So, here’s two examples of letting my outrageousness come out and play... and one of them includes pomegranates.
The phone call went like this:
“My name is Berit Lees and my doctor is Dr. B. I know I’m asking the impossible, but is there any way I can come in and see him today? I have a urinary tract infection and the burning pain is unbearable! I’m 70 years old and I don’t know how I got this!”
There was a very long silence on the phone, and then I heard only two words, “2:10.”
I look forward to seeing the woman (that I spoke with on the phone) when I arrive for my appointment. The question I have is this: Should I tell her that I do know how I got the infection, or not? 😊
Another example: The other day, I was chatting with one of my neighbours, let’s call him Gary.
As we were chatting away about a variety of topics, he asked how my relationship with TK was going? I smiled what I hoped would be a cheeky grin (being cheeky is part of being outrageous) and said, “Wonderful! I can’t believe how lucky I am to have met him. And the part that absolutely astounds me is our great love life!”
TK has suggested that some of the readers of my blog would like to know what I mean by the word “great” when referring to our love life. When he said that, I let him know in no uncertain terms that, “There is no way I’m going to define the word ‘great’ when I’m referring to our love life. Each person can use their own imagination… and then multiply the scenario they’ve created, by 10.” That put a stop to his suggesting anyone comment on our love life! Plus, I think he was rather pleased at what I had just said. 😊
Back to my conversation with Gary… he was pleased to hear that I was having such a wonderful time, and then asked how old TK was. I said, “72.” “Why do you ask?” He replied, “I suggest you have him drink LOTS of pomegranate juice.”
I said, “Why should he do that?
Now, Gary was grinning from ear to ear and said, “It will help him have erections that last a wonderfully long time.”
You could have knocked me over with a feather! Gary had never made mention of anything so personal before!
Being an Outrageous Old Broad, I replied with my rapier-like wit, “Is it working for you?”
Gary, being an Outrageous Old Gentleman, grinned and said, “Get TK to drink some and you’ll have your answer!”
Of course, I relayed my conversation with Gary to TK and the first thing he said was, “Let’s go to Safeway and get some pomegranate juice!”
Several days later, I walked over to Gary’s house, grinning from ear to ear, and said, “TK wants to know how much he should drink in one day, and how long does it take to start working?” Gary replied, “Two large glasses per day, and it starts working right away.”
I replied, “Yes, that sounds about right!” 😊
Hopefully I’ve given you some idea about what I mean when I say it’s fun to be a little Outrageous!
