DP Daily Prompt: Agree to Disagree

pad2015-s1.png (308×60)

Do you have a good friend or a close relative with whom you disagree on a major issue( political, personal , cultural)? What’s the issue and how do you make the relationship work?

I have a good friend, we discuss political, personal and cultural issues, we disagree at times about certain things, we do not cross the limit, which is how I maintain my relationship with her.

I spoke to her about her health and that she should be careful what she eats, she agrees, we are humans and our temptation to eat certain foods keeps us from remembering how dreadful it is for us.

My friend maintains she is very careful about her eating habit at home, when it comes to going out to eat, the smell of food makes her break her resolve, I’ve suggested why not she eat at home but she is an outgoing person she’d rather eat out at the cost of her health than give up eating out.

In those times my mother’s words ring in my ear, “we’d only live  once why suffer heartache by denying yourself?”

These words are enough to keep me quiet!

Writing Prompt: Call me, Maybe

I use my phone mainly to make calls, to various companies I deal with. I always have trouble with Roger’s,they provide the internet,the T.V. sometimes the power company. I had to call the power company a few days ago. My bill was more than three times compared to other months. They were not short of excuses, like it was too cold and it was five days more than the last month. I could argue in five days I more than tripled my bill. I know it would be a futile attempt on my part. So I let it go.

Then there is a call every week from people collecting  used clothes. I am told they sell them,they do not give them free. Besides if I donate every week like they want me to. I won’t have much left for me to wear. So my answer is , “Sorry not this time.”

Then there are personal calls,some I love getting but there are others which I don’t answer. Paying for call display,is worth the money I pay every month.

It is a nuisance when the phone buzzes at 3 A.M. I am very unhappy.

My phone is necessary in times of emergency,such as when I need the plumber to fix problems I have with the plumbing.

I don’t have too many problems with my phone.
