Sweet and Sour

on April 28, 2014

I don’t like sweets, desserts, chocolates, lollies, and would much rather have cheese and crackers.

This morning, Ming and I went into town to pick up Anthony for a doctor’s appointment for both of them (I am the mere chauffeur – ha!). Ants needed one of his skin cancers burned off with the liquid nitrogen spray thingy, and Ming needed a new prescription for something.

Tonight, when I rang Ants to say goodnight (this only seems to work every few days), a nurse answered and immediately handed the new telephone receiver to him.

I said I was just ringing to say goodnight and he said that this was very sweet of me and, after we hung up, I remembered how, initially (when he was 41 and I was 17), he was so horrible to me but, occasionally said things like “Jules, you are so sweet!”

  1. Funny, when you put it that way, people can be sweet or sour too! 😀

  2. What a ‘sweet’ memory! 🙂

    What a wonderful memory… sweet if I may say so…

    Glad the telephone worked and you had a satisfactory conversation.

    What a love story! I can’t believe you knew him when you were 17. That was a lifetime ago. 🙂

  6. You were only 17 when you met Anthony?
    That is the same age I met my (now-ex) husband.
    I remember what you mean by the ‘you are sweet’ endearments.
    Happy memories 🙂

  7. I’m with you on the cheese and crackers instead of dessert.

    And you’ve got our age-spread beat by 4 years. Early in our marriage (when the difference wasn’t yet as apparent) at a party, when a new friend asked our ages (my husbands, and mine) and I told her the truth–she screamed. Out loud.

    And I’m sure it’s true that you are sweet. That’s a good thing in people, although for some of us, not as good in food.

  8. God I love you guys! And your humor! And your realism!

    Julie, Ants knows you are sweet. Take care, Bill

    Now there is the word where sweet is divine!!! HUgs

  11. I love cheese and crackers too and when Anthony says you are so sweet it must make you feel good

    I wouldn’t mind being sweet and sour … this is bit about when I was dating a Norwegian guy, when I was a lot younger and he said all the time – I think you are such “rar” (sweet) girl and I thought it was because he liked me – then I found out that “rar” in Norwegian ment “strange” in Swedish. *laughing

    Sorry, forgotten a “a” – meant.

  14. It’s funny what triggers a memory, isn’t it? Truly bittersweet.
