I recently texted my wife about an article I was reading entitled ’13 things to do with the clitoris.

Is it clitoris or cliTORris. Clitoris sounds like the action your tongue or fingers might do across it. Clitoris, clitoris, clitoris. I’ve seen porn where it looks like they’re strumming a banjo for Christ sake. . Clitoris, clitoris, clitoris. …….cliTORris , now that sounds like a surgical tool. Scalpel, sponge, cliTORris. I’m not sure.

Now I’ve been married  32 years and like many long term relationships, sex gets …well you know, it’s there if you want it and sometimes it  can become like exercise equipment you own . You have a lot invested in it, it still looks good but, the new season of Orange is the New Black is amazing and there’s cake in the fridge.

So I text my wife this article and I don’t hear anything back.  Normally she might not look at her phone for a while but we just got these iPhone 6s and if there is any chance to interact with the most amazing phone in the world, she will ……..But I get no response…the rest of the day …or that night when I got home.  But there was cake.

The weekend comes around and we worked in the yard all day because I chose a career path that doesn’t include a gardener

 Finally, we’re  on the deck having a beer, admiring the days accomplishments and my wife blurts out, ” #7 and #10….”.  

“Excuse me?”

“The article, #7 and #10. Let’s start with those.”

I immediately whip out my phone for a refresher course and I see that  #7 and #10 are two of the more tamer ones. #10 is just called Lip Service … very straight forward and I’m sure effective,   but I mention #2 which is called The Alphabet…… She gives me the look ,   ” Let’s just start with some vowels .. Besides, Game of Thrones is on tonight.”

Coming through, make a path….

I met a teacher today who is chasing an acting dream….This is a rational, educated, sane person who at the age of 30 something has realized that there is only one life to live and you better get busy living it. I too am chasing a dream. For about 10 years now I have started and restarted numerous times. Each time though, I’m more focused and more resolved than the last. I’ve started sharing short, short stories on this web site and am completing my new studio this week which will allow more work as I won’t have to set up and tear down each time. In otherwords, I have removed another obstacle from my path. What obstacles are in your way? What’s holding you back?
