What does the future hold? It used to be exciting to ponder the possibilities. Maybe I would travel the world and meet a handsome prince who would sweep me away to a place where fairy godmothers made all wishes come true. Alas, experience has proved that fairy tale dreams don't come true, and godmothers seem to have lost the fairy powers they once might have had. I did find my handsome prince, whose smile sent my soul soaring to the moon and back again. Thankfully, his magic hasn't waned. But these days the future isn't nearly as exciting to ponder. The pipes are backing up and I'm waiting for the cesspool guy, who might be the next handsome prince in my life if he can assure me I will be able to flush the toilet without drama and plungers on standby. Beyond that, who knows?
