Six Impossible Things

This is an Occasionally Random Post
It was the White Queen, from Through the Looking Glass, who said:

"When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by Monday-Wednesday to give me words of encouragement and virtual hugs. It means a lot.

You see, my childhood best friend is dying and the news has taken me by surprise. We met right around the time we turned eleven and were an instant dynamic duo.

In honor of Jay, I've decided to believe in six impossible things. It is something he would definitely approve of.

1. I'm sure the Magic Pool is real because it took us to many fantastic places where we had many fabulous adventures.

2. It is possible to make a perfect score with a Kurplunk Bomb.

3. We will have lunch with George Harrison and Jimi Hendrix.

4. Someday, everyone in the Bish Mob will being together again and we'll stage another mock fight at Trunk Bay.

5. I'll win a round at the Annual Coke Bottle Cap Batting Contest.

6. I'll remember everything and forget nothing.

And this bonus.

7.Someday  I'll be funnier than you.

Nope, sorry, that last one truly is impossible. 
Jay, making me laugh, like always. Around 1978.
It's okay to leave, my friend. I'll breathe your air for you.


  1. Bish, I'm so sorry. Prayers for your friend and the lives of those he touched. I think he'll really like that tribute. He might even let you win the Bottle Cap Batting Contest.

  2. What a great picture! You'll always have that of him.

  3. I am sorry. May you both find peace.

  4. What a happy picture ... Hugs and prayers. For nothing is impossible for God.

  5. I'm so sorry to hear this, Bish. I don't even want to imagine how you must be feeling. My thoughts are with Jay and with you. Hugs!

    Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  6. Oh, Bish! Jay is lucky to have such a friend who went on so many adventures with him. This was exquisitely written.

  7. I'm sorry he's going through this and that you're impacted too. You'll always cherish the many years of friendship between the both of you. I believe special people and events always remain in some form.

  8. Bish, I'm so sorry. How wonderful that your lives both had the fruit of this beautiful friendship.

  9. Cool stuff to believe impossibly in. I'm sending all the encouraging vibes your way I can.

  10. I am so sorry. Friends like that are such a treasure.

  11. You've given him the best of gifts, Bish. You've given him your love.
