Yesterday's NEWS TODAY!
I am reposting this bit, hoping for some 'serious' (yeah, right!) input:
Heard a word today--new to me--"sponsling" instead of the old "SPONSEE". I've always disliked that expression. But sponsling sounds kind of feminine to me, so I'm still looking for a more macho-sounding substitute for sponsee, for men. Something like "Pigeon-shit"--any suggestions? Time for a change, Peeps!
I believe the word "sponsling" was coined by one of the women on here. Maybe Pam? Kristin? Lou? Someone else? Lemme know, please?--I enjoy (yeah, right!) giving credit to myself for something YOU did -grin!
My daughter "K" is a Firefighter-Paramedic. She owns a huge attack dog, named "Chief". One day she had her Big old German Shepherd at the firehouse. She was showing her co-workers how "Chief" obeys her commands.
"K" shouted out, at one point, "CHIEF...SIT!!!" Of course, at that very moment, in walked the gold-helmeted human Fire Chief, who immediately scurried to a seat in the corner.
(Ahem!) In other news....
On Saturday, while in Tampa, I had called my sponsor, just to say "Howdy". We talked about the recent business meeting at which it was decided to allow one meeting a month to be used for Tradition reading and discussion. In order to get the thing rolling off to a 'correct' beginning, he was sort of "appointed to take care of it."
So, on the phone, he said to me, "Of course, I'll expect you, Steve, to take a few meetings yourself". Now, that's called passing the buck. Since (click on) Alanon Syd and I did twelve separate sessions on the Traditions in recent months, I may steal some of his knowledge on the topic. I don't even have to ask, Syd! Do I?
Went to 6 PM Palm Sunday mass. Forgot that Palm Sunday is a lengthy affair, with procession, bells, a 'blong' gospel reading, and homily, etc. Got home later than expected for some dinner, AA phone calling, and (of course, what else?) BLOGGING!
I've got to see what the Peeps are writing today. As with everyone else here, time seems to be my enemy. Who the heck invented "time" anyway? It seems to create so many of my problems.
And yes, I'm 'Always and Forever' in LOVE with our program of Alcoholics Anonymous. AND it's members, AND it's blogger-members who pass on to me and others their Experience, Strength, and Hope.
May all of us stay sober another day...like TODAY!
In LOVE and service,
