Me? Bored?

Me and Helen were sitting under mom and dad's portico this morning.  We were watching the world go by. 

"Do you ever get bored not working?" Helen asked me.

I laughed.

"Never say you are to my father," I told her. "He will put you to work in his yard."

"Seriously, though," Helen said. "Do you?"

"Sometimes," I replied. "I do well with the structure work can bring to life.  Like taking showers and eating on a schedule."

"I'm bored right now," Helen then said.

"And you're working!!!" I replied laughing.

"Don't think the irony escaped me," Helen said with a smile.

Helen has a sister named Juanita.  Dad says Jaunita is much more personable and likable. 

"You would love her," he told me not too long ago. 

I tried to imagine someone with a better personality than Helen and couldn't.  I'm smitten.

Better personality? Helen is a total sweetheart, and you can tell her I said so. If her sister is even more likable she must be a saint... ;-)

As Helen it would appear, is smitten with you :-)

I'd love to have a Helen sitting on the porch with me. Especially one who cooked so well. I'm glad she's your friend.
