Have you ever done it before?
If you were at a Five-Star Restaurant and had just had a very expensive, satisfying dinner and the waitress, who has addressed your every whim and need, is now pouring your coffee to overflowing perfection so it’s a small moat in your saucer around your coffee cup.
Q U E S T I O N :
Are you an A P R I L F O O L enough
in front of all the guests,
enjoying dinner as you are,
going to S L U R P from your saucer?
Not even if it’s the best coffee ever,
Well, not many of us take notice
and might not readily admit it,
but the good stuff I S in the Saucer. . .
the Overflow is always/ALL ways
where IT’S at. . .
Any Real April Fool knows that, don’t they?
A few weeks ago,
I conducted the small memorial service for Charles.
I never met him before.
He was a hospice patient in a group home near Santa Barbara, CA.
He was 92 and had been there most of his life,
but his life was never defined by that little fact.
Charles was an April Fool every month of the year. . .
Charles drank from the saucer,
u n a b a s h e d l y, o f t e n,
with a smile on his face
and a pure, unadulterated happiness in his heart.
I learned that Charles had friends,
found true love,
had a job he took pride in,
and led a stress-free,
h a p p y l i f e !
Saucer slurping high living, huh?
The truest of April Fools
S e r i o u s l y ,
if given the chance IN or OUT of a Group Home,
if at our last breath,
we could KNOW,
not hope, wish, dream. . .
K N O W
that we had friends,
found true love,
had a job we took pride in,
and led a stress-free, happy life
—-S a u c e r – S i p p e r—–
Class A April Fool,
would you turn it down,
Don’t feel bad. . .
M a n y d o !
D o n ‘ t b e M A N Y !
Most don’t have the chance to drink fully from The Cup,
let alone the Saucer. . .
Most would turn down voluntarily being an
A P R I L F O O L
any day of the year,
let alone on April 1
There’s not only a Full Cup we have
but a Saucer for the Overflow
Hmmmmmm of the Day:
Now Noticing would be one thing.
Drinking from them both. . .Quite another!
One. . .Two. . .Three:
S L U R P Deeply
You April Fool
Get Charles’d !
