Simple Pleasures

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

A healthy, just firm enough to maintain a shape bowel movement that piles up above the water.
This becomes more meaningful as you get older.
I just finished with one of these. Wonderful!

I was given two pieces of advice from a former co worker. He was in his late fifties, but had the soul of an eighty something curmudgeon. We were pounding rivets in the belly of a plane one day when he rolled over and patted the beach ball that was his belly. "I've been bound up for days now. I need to take a dump before I blow up. My son, when you get to be his age your whole life revolves around your next bowel movement." The second piece of advice came when a group of us were on a motorcycle trip somewhere along the coast of North Carolina. He was packing his gear up before pulling out of the campsite and he said," My son, never travel without a spare pair." I turned around to find him proudly displaying a very large pair of whitie tighties that probably were very much older than me.

I was considering bombing this thread by mentioning the simple pleasure of letting loose a big ol' fart when no one is around to complain.

But you guys have already gone way beyond there....

My wife's dog, a Chihuahua puppy almost a year old, is about the most spastically exuberant greeter I've ever seen. He wags both ends so hard he can't keep his footing. Plus the smile. And the talking (rooo-roo-rooo!). And the trying to climb my leg. And as soon as I sit down, he's all up in my face schnorfling and licking, and all sorts of things - to the point it's hard to breathe without getting dog hair in my nose and mouth. He's got the IQ of a broken rock in chocolate pudding, but he leaves no doubt about how happy he is to see you.
