Incomplete

Ragtag Daily Prompt: Incomplete:

Living the first forty five years of my life as a single male I felt I knew everything. The world was mine. I could do anything!

Now, after 30 years of marriage, I find myself living a life of contentment. Without my wife, partner, friend, lover, I would find myself incomplete.

Cabbage

The local market was a colorful visual experience as well as a treat for the nose. The borders of the Central Europe are vague and irrational but the smell can identify certain regions. From across the street the smell of boiled cabbage and stale beer whiffed through the air. This must be Vienna!

Lighten

The Grand Teton National Forest was a major reason we decided to take a road trip to the West. We were primed for its beauty. We lodged the night before near the Grand Teton’s. Upon waking the next morning the Teton’s were totally blacked out by heavy hoary clouds. But the storm passed in a few more hours.

The sky lightened after the storm.

Comeuppance

I told my grandmother, who lived in Michigan, that I was moving to Florida. That was three years ago. Every winter when I saw on the weather map that Michigan was getting hit hard and heavy with cold and snow I would call her and brag about it being seventy degrees outside. She would laugh and say “just you wait.”

My grandmother called today and asked how the weather was where I was in Florida.

She gave me my comeuppance.
