Fresh endeavors

The Plague Year has kept my child bride busy with new things now that her weekly pastry sale on the downtown plaza has been put on temporary hold. She has, of course, turned to crocheting, a new skill for her.

She’s a woman in constant motion, a stark contrast to my lazy lifestyle. Another interest has cropped up for her. She wants to become a life coach, that relatively new therapeutic profession. She’s already taken three two-hour introductory classes online, and it has her hooked. The intro classes come from Miami and have Gringo prices on the full certification, so she’ll be hunting a school in Mexico.

Interestingly, both my sister and my second ex-wife are certified life coaches. It’s all the rage, you know. I am rather skeptical of most therapeutic occupations, but I know my child bride would excel at it as she excels in everything.

And here below, we have the rottweiler. I have read they’re not very smart dogs.

How do you say bow-wow in Spanish?

  1. Very nice crocheting, especially for someone who has not been doing it very long. As far as life coaches, there are many that need to lean on someone else, more and more people every day. It’s a sad state of affairs.

    Maybe she could get you to give up your lazy lifestyle, hopefully, at a family discount.

  2. Love the animals she’s making, especially the Rottweiler. We don’t have a Rottweiler but have three dogs. I think those would sell like hot cakes here.

  3. I don’t know for sure, but when we were kids, we used to read Mexican comic books, and the dogs barked “Gua gua” in them.

  4. Felipe: Well now! I was never able to get close enough to a unicorn to hear what it was saying. They always ran away before they said anything. Or maybe they were just cursing under their breath for being discovered! But your child bride’s work looks really good. She needs to get on Etsy!

  5. Felipe: Etsy is an internet sales platform for folks who make hand-made items. It has a really big audience.

  6. I am shocked — shocked — that you pretend not to know that unicorns speak in an identical voice to Nancy Pelosi’s. That is why they have the good sense to remain silent — leaving us to believe they are mute. I know this only because I live in a world populated by unicorns, corn dogs, and card sharks. It is too fantastic to believe.

    1. Señor Cotton: While all that may — or may not — be true, the important element is that Pelosi, as House Speaker, is third in line to be president, and since Sleepy Joe won’t last much longer, that means she is second in line for all practical purposes, and that should scare the bejezus out of us all.

  7. Her animals are great! I’d buy one if she ships to the U.S. Definitely check out the Etsy website. She’d do well on it.

    1. Annette: Many thanks, and I’ll pass on your positive remarks. The problem with Etsy is the international border. Could be done, I am sure, but the border often complicates things.
