“Really?”

What power that word holds!

It’s funny, someone responds to a thing you said; “Really?” and you kinda want to say, “No, I’m friggin’ lying!” But you don’t… you refrain and say something polite, instead; “Yes, it really happened that way.”

Sometimes it’s to question something like a compliment – “I love that dress!” “Really, I wasn’t sure, it really looks OK?”

Sometimes is pure, sheer SARCASM! Someone walks by in an inappropriate outfit and we whisper to ourselves, “Really? Did she look in the mirror before she left the house?!”

Sometimes it’s a challenge (I know where I’m going here and if you read the blog on Tuesday you do too….) I’m editing, getting closer and am loving the challenges that word brings! It makes me check my thoughts to assure that what I’m saying is accurate and that I describe it so. It excites me to SEE what you may see later when YOU GET TO READ ROCK AND ROLL NEVER FORGETS!

My heart and head are happy that this is happening – REALLY! ha ha!

Now the sarcastic ‘really’…  REALLY? it’s only THURSDAY! Really???

OK, since it REALLY is only Thursday and I must go to work… I’ll be movin’ on…  (BUT WAIT! There’s still hope – Gene just got up and MAYBE we won the LOTTERY!!!)

Have a beautiful day, I hope it’s REALLY good! ha ha ha!

Love, Barbara
