I hate these little buggers.
And they don't like me either.
They attack me on my walks and leave whelps. I spray with repellent, but they ignore it. A neighbor said use vanilla mixed with water. I'll try that. She said I'll smell good and those little pests will leave me alone. Tomorrow....vanilla.
As I fought the tiny devils today, I thought how life can be like that. We fight trivial things every day. Eventually we become overwhelmed and the hill becomes a mountain. (Pardon the cliches) But you get the point.
Wouldn't it be fantastic if a touch of vanilla here and there would ward off the daily irritants?
I told you how I once how kept a jar of Zip Lip pills on my desk.
Each time I wanted to spout off at a fellow employee, boss or a client, I'd pop a candy in my mouth. It didn't always work, but it helped.
Did I tell you about the extra miles on the dreaded treadmill as a result of these Zip Lip pills? No? Well...that's a different story. I ate a lot of those sugary things. I hope they made life sweeter for those around me.
Vanilla and Zip Lip pills. A way to fight the little pests in life.
