Let’s Pretend

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPLet’s just pretend…just for a minute, okay? Let’s pretend that I’ve just spent $10 or $15 or $50 for my seat tonight. Let’s pretend that I’m sitting in the row behind you, then you decide to hold your phone camera up in front of my face to make a movie of what’s happening onstage. I lean right, you lean right, I go left

Just Tryin’ to Get Back Home

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPCertain occupations fascinate me… the guy who rakes the pitcher’s mound between innings at Kauffman Stadium, coffee testers for Starbucks, window washers on cruise ships, the lady who calls you to ask why you missed your physical therapy appointment. These jobs may not be all that exciting to those who hold them, but they each hold a certain curious element, something out of

Hard to Fight When You Hug

Greetings from Poosey.

Chicken in the breadpan pickin’ out dough

One more girl and on you go.

Don’t be fast and don’t be slow,

Chicken in the breadpan pickin’ out dough.

And so went the old square dance as I’d watch my folks parade around the old Legion Hall on Saturday nights, petticoats flying and laughter fending off the chill of a Midwest winter. There was

Education: Then and Now

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPMy high school band teacher was a madman. I mean that in the kindest possible way, but he was the terror of our little high school. I doubt we had much over a hundred kids in the school but around forty of them were in the music program. It was just the thing to do. Math, civics, and English were all necessary, but

The Sky is Falling (and Soon!)

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPGet ready to have a book dropped on your head. The FAA has finally given Amazon permission to test its drone delivery in the United States. Under the Amazonian plan, a human loads the package onto a conveyor belt, which takes it to any awaiting drone, then the device takes off and plops your book, denture powder or antifreeze on your doorstep. We’ve

Refusing to Turn

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPIt was a big grocery day for me. Four small bags. I realize that for some harried mothers only four sacks of groceries would hardly be worth a trip to the store, but Herb and I are light buyers, foolishly spending more fuel to get to the store than on the groceries themselves. Blame it on dementia. By the time I get there

The Name Game

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPWomen get pregnant. It happens and that’s a good thing. That’s how we get more women. A young friend of mine recently found herself in such a situation and she told me that her first task was to start thinking of baby names. I assume that although she called them “baby names” she expected the child to carry the moniker into adulthood. She

Existing Without a Cell Phone

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPThe two little girls sat on my sofa, carefully going over the various cookie choices. Every week seems to bring a new school fundraiser to my door and the kids in my neighborhood know I’m an easy touch so on some balmy afternoons they’re lined up on my porch. I scan the over-priced candles, greeting cards, and sausages then give everyone an order.

Worthwhile Silliness

by Freida Marie Crump

Greetings from Poosey.

PooseyDigest_WPI had no idea what I was getting into, but when I’m dealing with Jill that’s often the case. Jill Briggsly ranks toward the top of our small town’s nutty characters and predictability is not her forte. The invitation arrived in the mail: “A surprise birthday! My house, 2 p.m. Tuesday. No gifts.” I made a wild guess that since Jill was hosting
