The Girlie Giggle

I’m forty five years old and I have no problem telling anyone that. My age doesn’t bother me. My gray hair is another story. My husband is away this weekend. I have been very busy, with work, and dinner engagements. It’s good to keep busy.

But it doesn’t matter how busy I am, I miss him when he travels. When he calls, something happens to this forty five year old woman that is quite humorous. I’m told the first step to healing is admitting there is a problem.

Hello. My name is Nadine. I’m a girlie giggleholic.

There I said it. That wasn’t too bad. If you’re not familiar with this condition, then you’ve never been around a young woman in love. It’s the sound that comes out when the one she loves calls or says something mushy to her.

My daughter teases me because when Tom calls out it comes – the girlie giggle. Why after nearly twenty nine years together the girlie giggle is still around? I don’t know – it must be love.

I recognize this is a problem, but not all problems need a solution. So there will be not GG meetings in my future. To all of you out there that have this problem – stand tall and be proud. Wear your GG badge with honor! There is no shame in being madly in love.

I love the giggle. It's great to be intoxicated with one you journey through life! And the movie was great, too.
