The meaning of TWO.

I am here to tell you that the lyrics you probably remember well.....you know the ones......by Three Dog Night???

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do. Two can be as bad as one. It's the loneliest number since the number one.


Well, they just aren't true.......
Cause I've been experiencing  a TWO, yesterday and today.  And two is pretty wonderful.
It is so good, that I don't even lust for ONE.


A TWO is not a dull meanness like a 3-4, and not a skirmish in your head like a 5-6, and a long damn ways from a 7-8 slammer, and heaven on earth compared to the pure misery of a 9-10.
Yup, folks, my headache has been a TWO, a sweet and almost normal TWO, all day yesterday, and today.


The definition of normal, to me, is not wanting to be headless like Mrs. Olsen.
My dress form has a name, and I'm OK with that.




Of course, I don't know what it means.  Is it just a blip on the screen?  Or is it the beginning of something marvelous........called NO headache at all.






There is just no way to tell.



But whichever it is, I have had two days where I felt like myself, and after 60 some days of feeling anything but, I have only one thing to say.......

THANK YOU.
 I thank God, the Universe,  whatever powers that be, I am grateful.





“What day is it?" asked Pooh.


It's today," squeaked Piglet. 

My favorite day," said Pooh.” 
 A.A. Milne

Hallelujah, and Amen.

Pretty baskets! Who made those, Little Miss Two?

Karen said...

So happy to hear this.. perhaps the symptoms are going away!! When I read up on this thing, it did say somewhere that sometimes the symptoms go away on their own. Amen is right.

Lovely number 2!!! And I love spending time in your studio, even virtually! Miracles do happen!

Kathy said...

Hilary, you are a marvelous writer! When you hurt, I feel your pain...when you don't I feel your JOY!

Hoping tomorrow and forever after is a 2, at most!

Well that just makes me gosh darn happy for you!! Now don't overdo it just because you're on the way to a Zero. I think Mrs. Olsen looks marvelous and I LOVE her hat. Oh my gosh, so purdy.

Hilary said...

Yay! May tomorrow be a 1.5 and keep dropping from there.

I so hope it's the beginning of something marvelous! Hooray for TWO! Maybe it will skip ONE and go directly to ZERO.
