Are You LITERALLY Tying To Kill With Kindness?

March 17, 2020

Let me just say that if you know someone quarantined because they have a compromised immune system (say from undergoing chemo), there’s no reason I can think of why a functioning adult should have to be reminded more than once that, no, they can’t come over for a visit.

I Hoped He At Least WORKED There!

March 16, 2020

“Please take any of these carts; they have all been personally wiped down by me,” the guy at the grocery store told me this morning.

Yuck! I thought.  That would explain the dampness . . .

This Isn’t Just A Joke Either

March 13, 2020

The other day I overheard someone talking about an unnamed politician who was “obviously incompetent and getting worse every day,” and I realized that didn’t narrow the field down enough for me to know who they were talking about.

Generally It’s When I Don’t, But There ARE Exceptions

Some days it’s a toss up on whether it upsets me more when I don’t understand people . . . or when I do.

This Made Me Smile, And I Haven’t Had A Lot Of Smiles To Share Lately, So Here You Go

March 11, 2020

I must stay and watch the brat,

‘Cause ma and pa just had a spat,

The ice man still brings ice, you see,

But our ice box runs with ‘tricity!

– Something I saw yesterday on a clip featuring a classic black-and-white cartoon (no link because some of the clips, while funny, take it a bit far even by my standards.)

 

And It’s Pollen Season, So We’ve Been Drinking A LOT Of Coffee Around Here

March 10, 2020

We’re still working on all those creamers I opened, by the way.

At Least That Had BETTER Be What They Meant

March 9, 2020

The other day it came up in conversation that I’m currently studying the Hawaiian language.  It’s nothing serious, just something I poke at here and there (Poké pun unintentional in this case), so I wasn’t prepared when someone boggled at me.

“You mean that you’re studying a new language at your age?!”  (I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt that what they meant was that most people study languages when they are in school or college, and I am admittedly above the average age for a college attendee.)

“Don’t be ridiculous!” I snorted.  “I started a year ago.”

This Is Why It’s Important To Tell Someone You’ve Rearranged Where The Supplies Go

March 6, 2020

Me yesterday:  Huh, I didn’t think we were out of that creamer yet.  Oh well, I can open another one.

Me today:  Wow, Lala is really going through the creamer lately!  Time to open another one, I guess . . . 

Lala to me not long after that:  Please tell me you didn’t open another creamer!

So I Guess What I Said Remains Technically True For Today

March 5, 2020

Last night I was asked where I get my ideas, and I replied they come from any number of sources.

Today I am reminded that zero can be included in the category of “any number.”

But If I Die, It Means I’ve Misjudged The Situation, And You Have My Blessing To Then Feel A LITTLE Panicky

March 4, 2020

As a follow-up to yesterday, I just want to assure everyone that I’m fine and feeling much better today.  Please don’t buy into any epidemic panics.
