Took a day off yesterday and kind of floated one for a change of pace. I would like to tell you that it was a productive sort of day, that I got a lot accomplished, and that things, were just peachy. But I didn’t do any of the above, I just took some time to reflect and relax.
Mailbox has been winding down a little since the elections and that is good news, a steady diet of negative material isn’t good for one to consume on a daily basis. Not that politic’s is not in the news, it is still there, just yesterday I read of a woman who was so disgusted with her husband for not voting that she ran over him with a car.
My Dad was a lot like that, whenever he got really mad at me in my youth, he would look me in the eye and then say … “Go stand in the street until I can get the truck started.”
There is new threat on the horizon, it is called the Fiscal Cliff, sounds exciting and mysterious doesn’t it. Trust me, it is bad news. Now you have something different for conversation on the cocktail circuit, instead of talking about the new bear cubs at the zoo. You can lead off with: “Now that I know exactly what the “fiscal cliff” will cost me personally, I’m suddenly much more interested”
Not all of the email is bad, we got this one yesterday and it was a hoot.
An elderly man was stopped by the police around 2 a.m and was asked where he was going at that time of night. The man replied, “I’m on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”
The officer then asked, “Really? Who’s giving that lecture at this time of night?”
The man replied, “my wife.”
Detroit and Oakland are in the news again. Oakland California has gotten so bad on the crack-head robberies and such, that most of the fast food chains are moving out or have left the area completely. Yesterday I read where they actually robbed a news crew of their camera equipment. Pay particular attention to what type of “get-away-car” the thieves were driving. Evidently crime does pay in Oakland.
Do you think that it is acceptable for a waitress or waiter to be rude? You can read all about here and actually vote your opinion. I can always tell when they are hacked off at me, they bring my tomato juice to the table and they have their thumb inside the glass.
Scientists found 2,300 different species living in (A) Amazon rainforest. (B) Coral Reefs. (C) Your belly button. Take a shot at it here.
Tomorrow we will discuss why people pay for one newspaper, but when the door opens up, they grab several. No good huh? Okay, “How about people who pick their nose in the car? Do they really think they are invisible?”
I mean really … What do you want for free.
