We had a deal where you made me smarter, funnier, and a better dancer.
I’ve seen the video.
We need to talk.
Between the eyes and ears there lie
The sounds of color
And the light of a sigh
With thoughts of within
To exclude the without
The ghost of a thought
Will exclude all doubt
And to name this thought
Is important to some
So they gave it a word
And the word is
My boss told me to have a nice day….so I went home.
We suffered a home invasion recently. Fortunately, it was a stupid benign one. After the son came home from his midnight shift, he stayed up a bit later than usual. He always locks the front door as he comes in. The wife got up a bit earlier than usual to take a shower, to go out. Between the water running, and the two of them talking in the hall, I came awake.
Suddenly, I could hear the wife talking to someone else, and got out of bed to see what was going on. Halfway down the stairs in her nightie, suddenly she heard some woman’s voice shouting out, “Adeline! Adeline, are you here? I’ve come to visit. Adeline, can you hear me?”
The wife shouted, “There’s no Adeline here! Get out! Get Out!” and the son came roaring out of his bedroom. Later, he bitched, “The one morning I forget to lock the door…!” The woman responded, “Isn’t this number 238?” Does Adeline drive a new Kia Sorento with custom ‘ARCHON’ plates? Does she live in a house with 6-inch brass numbers, 232, on the corner of the garage that you just passed?
I’d almost suspect an all-you-can-quickly-lift-and-walk out-with burglary buffet if she hadn’t been challenged. It’s difficult to imagine anyone that dumb, but then, the only infinite things are the Universe, and stupidity….and I’m not sure about the Universe.

All writers have a little voice inside their head, one that doesn’t say, write a bestseller, or, sell lots of books. It simply whispers to them to write every day. If listened to, the voice will go silent. If ignored, the urge will never relent. Writing frees your soul, and allows your imagination to wander.
I took the daughter shopping the other day. We went to the refrigerated section of a major supermarket chain, looking for OJ and chocolate milk. As I walked past the big, chilled display of eggs, I realized that it was clucking at me. Apparently the store has hidden a speaker behind the display, and trip-switches on the glass doors has it burbling, “Bock-bock-bock-bock, bock-bock-bock.” I was afraid to go near the milk aisle. Moo, moo, moo???….or the ground pork. 🙄
