Today I Love Pfumpy

Amici pizza box and coffee
Mmmmmm, pizza, any left?

Today I love pfumpy as much as I’ve ever loved any word I’ve ever made up before. I love that it is pompous in that it has a silent “P” and yet it is more down to earth and pedestrian in that it just sounds like it is disappointed in everything. I love that I cannot really recall the context in which I used the word because we were laughing and I only remember the happiness and joy and humor of the situation. I love people who accept that I make up words rather than telling me I can’t do that. I love that there are lots of quiet plans afoot to be entertained and happy this year and our big plan is to keep making each other laugh, a lot, and enjoy our selves and our lives. I love that we do more things to make life enjoyable than we have time for and we often have to pick and choose and sometimes some of the fun things get left behind but if they’re missed then we go back for them and do them and let something else drift for awhile. I love that yesterday we sort of came back to life after work and we drove around and ran some errands and ended up getting pizza and fish & chips at Amici’s in Meaford and that was great. I love that they are making their situation work, they’re staffed and ready to take orders for pick up or delivery, the food is great, and the people behind the counter are cheerful and happy to fill your order and see you on your way to a great meal.

Today I love that we made it to the cottage late last night, that the window fan cooled the place down pretty quickly, that we are pretty convinced that the water is warmer than it was last weekend and that we are considering going in swimming if it gets too hot here today, which it is supposed to do by mid afternoon. I love how we get to spend time here and just wash away our stress from the week gone by. I love that I am just minutes from where I grew up when I’m here and that we often drive through my old home town to get here, even though it is not necessary to do so.

Today I love two letter words, especially when playing scrabble, and even more especially when they get me big points. I love that I have managed to write a sentence made up of only two letter words and who could blame me for loving that, eh? It is so me to do so, eh? I love that you just read that sentence made up of two letter words and some of you realized it and some of you didn’t.

Today I love sipping coffee while I finish up my writing for the day and contemplate what I might have for lunch, pizza, maybe, if there’s any left.

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
