To answer the question, Water Lily comes from an episode of my very favorite TV show, The Golden Girls.

Blanche says to Dorothy, “It’s funny how that happened.  There I was, staying up last night, coming up with excuses to get out of this.  And then it occurred to me.  I said, “Water Lily” That’s what I call myself sometimes.

And since exposing the husband to the entire series or forcing him to watch them, every time I say to him, “I said to myself…”, he responds with “Water Lily….”.

And there you have it.  I have adapted to calling myself this when it is just her and I.

I do not why the husband calls his instagram FoodFanBoy but he makes the most wonderful food and posts beautiful photos, so check him out at https://www.instagram.com/foodfanboy/.



Now, let me just say straight out – I am the authority of squat.  I do not even do squats. I post my thoughts, current convictions and understanding and opinions.  I do not even claim to be consistent in any of those things. In fact, between me, myself and Water Lily, I contradict  myself all the time.  I hope you know that I am not trying to educate anyone or publish any great work here.  I am just blabbing.
