THE RED BUTTON

Once upon a time, about ten thousand years ago--or so it seems, Phil and I were in a meeting with a head hunter in San Francisco. He was trying to convince us that Phil needed his service and he used the analogy of selling me a new clothes dryer.


"No thanks, I love my dryer," I said.


He extolled the new dryer's wonderful features. I was unconvinced. And then he said, "It has a red button."

"A red button?"

"Yes, a red button."

"What does it do?" I asked.

"Well, when the clothes are dry," he paused. I leaned forward in my chair. "You hit the red button and it folds the clothes for you."

"I'll buy it!" I said.



So, since I am still languishing in a pale and coughing sort of way, and have nothing of any interest at all to write about I am going to give you a red button.

What will your red button do?

My red button will let me see Randy again. I yearn so to hear his voice and to see his gorgeous face. If he were here right now, I wonder what he would say to me.

My red button would bring all my children to live close to me, so I could see them a lot and go to church with them.

(Or I could use it for fresh goodies whenever I wanted...)

it would be used for the most highest of jobs. Shower cleaning. It would make me so happy.

PS I don't mind the folding it is the putting away of the clothes I despise.
