Time (and loss) Suck!

“You can’t change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future”

Hey kid, wanna buy some time?

Time Precious Time

If only I could bottle up some time and sell it, I’d be a content, fat and happy gazillionaire. Yes, time sucks.  It passes way too quickly, you can never get it back, and many days you find yourself pining for the good ol’ days — at least I know I do.

This month feels like some mischievous little imp has been pushing the fast-forward via remote control.  A week’s vacation at the beach zipped by before you could say crabcake,  and it seems like I just checked the calendar for our pre-vacation countdown, and VOILA!  now it’s all just a memory.

(ITALIAN LESSON:  How time flies = come vola il tempo!)

On a much deeper level, my Nan (whom I’ve written about several times) is now also a sweet memory.  Even 92 years can go by in a blink of an eye.  So many memories … my mouth still waters at the mere thought of Nan’s “famous” peanut butter and jelly sandwiches she made when I was a kid. Every summer I’d camp out at Nan’s for a week to spend time with my cousin Jimmy to swim in the lake, talk about boys and girls we liked and smoke ciggies.  Well, we barely inhaled – it was more about two punky kids pretending to smoke.  We’d nosh on Nan’s Ayds Reducing Plan chocolates after our smokes, thinking that would take the stink away.  Yeah, not a care in the world — boy, those were the days. 

Nan,  you were a sweetheart with a heaping side of sass! Damn,  it was just a month or so ago you were threatening to stab a certain pain-in-the-ass with your ginsu! Rest in Peace Olga, you’ll be missed.
