Monday morning, I have those get up, wake up, eat your eggs and oatmeal, rush to work blues!
Just this week someone commented, “I like your posts, they are informative and humorous.” Did you know that the U.S. Declaration of Independence has a total of 1,337 words? Words that launched a nation. The Bible, the Word of God, has about 773,000 words, so I am told. And the U.S. Tax Code has approximately 7,000,000 and it is still growing. Now that is incredible to me. Amazing huh.
What was the name of John Wayne’s horse? Anyone, anyone …. “Duke.”
We all knew Trigger, Roy’s trusty steed, what about Dale’s horse ….
Anyone, anyone? …. “Butter Milk.”
Don’t forget Pat, the jeep? C’mon now … “Nelly Belle.”
Gotta go, Sky King and Penny are coming on and I haven’t had my cholesterol lowering cereal this morning.
Best remember these little ditties; you never know when you might be called upon to come up with something witty and interesting on the Cocktail Circuit. You remember that old saying? “A mind is a terrible thing, and it must be stopped before it kills someone!” … “Have you seen the new bear cub’s at the zoo?”…. And my favorite, without a doubt …. “A watched pot never boils. But it does get paranoid.”
So, what has been happening?
Earlier in the week I got this email from a person and it said, “This sounds like the kind of joke you would tell.” The email went on to explain the joke to me, which I will spare all of you the misery and will NOT pass it on. The thing that bugs me about the situation, this was an off-color joke, and I don’t tell off color jokes.
I guess what is buggin’ me is this ….What type of image is it that I project to folks that would make them think I enjoy garbage like that? Well, having said that, I will move on. It is not often easy being me. But I cannot be anyone else, you see, “everyone else has been taken, I have to be me.”
Don’t you just hate clicking on an email, and when it opens up you see something like this. “Dear Mr. Smith, my name is Franklin J. Fenstamacher, I am an Agent with the U.S. Copyright Infringement Division here in Washington D.C. It has come to our attention that … Now those type of emails, I read them ALL THE WAY to the end. Man! I hate emails like those; don’t you guys hate emails like that?
You guys get them too, right?
