Word High July for 24 July 2016 Word dalisay

Click here to learn more about this blogging challenge. 

Today’s word is dalisay, which means pure or undiluted.   There are so few things in life today that qualify for that.  I know the love I feel from my beautiful child-bride Suzanne would qualify as pure and undiluted.

However, when I think of pure and undiluted things, I remember my nineteenth birthday back years ago.  I had a friend fill in for me at Rescue 16 at the Southern Shops “Metro” so I could have my birthday off.

Two friends, both male, arrived to help me celebrate my birthday.  They played bartender and mixed me a drink. The drink was their version of a screwdriver, which was about one part orange juice, one part cherry juice, and ten
parts vodka.  The second one left out the orange juice and the cherry juice. Yep, it was pure, undiluted, 180 proof vodka.  

After a tall glass of that, I was very wobbly.  I threw up things I had forgotten I had eaten.  Then, after about an hour of dry heaves, I threw up what looked like body parts a young man might need in later life.

For three days, I convalesced.  All I could eat and keep down was Cream of Wheat.  To this day I cannot look at or smell vodka without getting sick to my stomach.  

This August 18th, in honor of my child-bride Suzanne’s birthday, we will be giving all of our books away free.  Please download and read these books.  We have had to change the way we make money here since I suffered three strokes back in May.   We no longer sell Avon door-to door, but you can still buy it on our website at https://smcclendon.avonrepresentative.com.  You can also help us by purchasing things from our Etsy store.

Special Notice

You can help us by downloading our books free.  Then, read them.  Every quarter, Amazon has a contest to determine which 100 authors in the United States have the most pages read.  If we make it into the top 100, we will share a part in a pool of money Amazon sets aside for the top 100 authors.

Please also give us feedback on our books and leave your honest review at Amazon.  We thank you.

  1. That sounds like an awful experience.

    1. It was awful. It kept me from drinking hard liquor ever again. Now, the strongest thing I drink is Diet Coke.

  2. Uh oh. This sounds bad!!! Glad it wouldnever happen again!

    1. No, never again. Even the site of the bottles makes me ready to vomit. Maybe it is good I got it out of the way at 19 instead of at an older age.
