Today’s word is gigil. It means the uncontrollable urge to pinch or squeeze someone. Did you notice how close it comes to the word giggle?
In today’s politically correct world, I cannot imagine such a thing being tolerated. I often have an uncontrollable urge to squeeze my child-bride Suzanne. If someone were to pinch or squeeze anyone who was not their significant other, I could see lawsuits and arrests as the outcome.
Years ago, my family had a Western Auto Associate Store in Iva, South Carolina. One of our mechanics came into the sales area and went to the office and leaned on the counter while he was discussing business with my father.
My brother had one of those large pairs of Channel Lock Pliers. You know, the ones with the handles as long as your arms. He opened the jaws wide as he snuck up on the mechanic and pinched him hard on the rear end. My brother said he just had to do that.
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.
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.
