Apparently it’s my bio

It’s uncanny how much this person knows about me.


De Soave’s main goal is to put a smile on at least one person’s face every single day and she usually manages to do this by writing things that randomly pop into her head.

De has two adult children who she refers to as M&T.  One is always up for a new adventure and the other is a homebody.  One hopes to live in the south one day and the other practically lives in the North Pole.  The one thing they can always agree on is an overpriced Bloody Mary.

De’s husband is Den and he retired from the Air Force after 26 years, started another career and is the most amazing caregiver to De (when need be).  De is also the love of his life and he can’t live without her (most days).

De spends a majority of her day’s doc hopping because she was born genetically damaged and thrives on staying alive.

In the past 35 years, De has sold one online story and hopes to exceed this number by one or two in the next 35 years or until she succumbs to one of her medical conditions.

De inherited her quirky (hokey) sense of humor from her dad and there isn’t a single soul that laughs at their jokes more than the two of them.

Facts about De Soave

She could survive on chocolate and taco’s.

She can only fall asleep to HGTV.

She has at least 15 rolls of paper towels in the house at all times.

She apparently enjoys referring to herself in the 3rd person.

She requires alone time 85% of the time or her right eye starts twitching.

She loves her son’s $300.00 “hand me down” couch and fears the day it makes its way to furniture heaven.

She purchases solid color jammie pants so in case of an emergency (walking outside to get the mail) they can be passed off as regular pants.

She is a perfect weather seeker (68-78 degrees) because extremely hot weather makes her head hurt and extremely cold weather makes her joints ache.

She loves to travel to new places and usually on arrival, she wants to go home.

*She’s quite savvy on figuring out those social media thingymijigs so feel free to follow her…

My nickname from my dad as a toddler.

This is me trying hard to take a “normal” picture.


Waiting for my ENT app yesterday…
Cutest little elderly man on earth: I’m here for my appointment (extremely loud).
Receptionist: Sir, I don’t see your name on our list. What are you here for?
Cutest little elderly man on earth: Huh? I can’t hear you?
Receptionist: (much louder now) What are you here for?
My thoughts: I’m no doctor but I can tell you why Richard is here.
Cutest little elderly man on earth: You have to look at me so I can read your lips.
Receptionist: WHAT ARE YOU HERE FOR?
My thoughts: Doesn’t matter how loud you talk Trish, he’s not going to hear you.
Cutest little elderly man on earth: I’m here to get my hearing aids fixed.
My thoughts: Maybe I should be a doctor.

Anyway, I couldn’t stop laughing but thankfully he couldn’t hear me.
