I Am a Tough Cookie

How and why people are just about coping with life 176 People

    The 1st Time I Was Seduced

    It was the summer after I finished 8th grade. I had been cutting grass for neighbors all summer. Me, my trusty push-mower and a red gas can would go anywhere for 3 bucks.  On a hot June afternoon I was cutting the yard diagonally across the street from our house. There was a...

    40% Pure Gristle

    That's me.It's an approximation mind you, some might think it's more 60%, while others might say 20%...it's subjective I suppose. I like to think as sensitive as I am, I am at least that tough as well. I can and have dealt with a lot in my life. I really hope the future is easier...

    Pffffft Hardly.

    I am far from being a tough cookie. I was under the impression as you got older you became tougher. Not with me its not. I am an old softy *don`t tell anyone* I can be the miserably old curmudgeon on the face of the planet and my grandson comes through the door and its a totally...

    Things Roll

    Okay this is the way it is... much of the time I can let little offensive things roll right off of me. That is just an area I am continuing to grow and improve in. That said.... I am very direct and say what I think. If you are thin-skinned you will not last around me. If you...

    Well... Let'S See...

    I think I am naturally a tough person and my ideas are just about as original as they can get. When I was little people would just tell me to wait and I'd understand when I was older or I'd grow out of it and I'd look at them like they were stupid. Its always been an annoyance...

    I'm a snob about this. Only like to eat scratch dough. I can taste the difference between the scratch and manufactured doughs.
