It’s Tuesday, and I feel the need to share a few things. In other words, be prepared for the nonsense to hit the fan…
If you’re friends with me on any one of the many social sites, I decided I should probably inform you of something. Contrary to popular belief (and my most recently posted picture), I’m not really that angry. See, I never really learned to smile for the camera. Or if I did, I forgot how. Or I don’t care. Or I just ate spinach. Also, since I’m typically the photographer in the family, there are never any pictures being taken of me. So I have to stoop to the ridiculous-feeling task of taking a self-portrait. And, well… that can make me angry. Or not angry. I just feel stupid. So apologies for appearing to have a porcupine-like attitude.
Speaking of porcupines, I still want a hedgehog for a pet.
I was recently disappointed to find that one of my favorite-people-in-the-world-who-I’ve-never-met-and-I-know-by-calling-them-one-of-my-favorite-people-without-knowing-them-makes-me-sound-creepy said something really dumb. And I understand this shouldn’t be surprising since I’m referring to Dave Barry. (That wasn’t very nice of me, was it? But really, he does base his career around boogers.) He said, “The four building blocks of the universe are fire, water, gravel and vinyl.” I’m sure you’re wondering what the big deal is? I want to know one thing; how can you include vinyl in that list but not duct tape? Duct tape, Dave! Think about it.
I still have marks on my foot from where I hit it with a weedhacker/wacker/eater three weeks ago. If I’m honest, I’ll admit that I’m hoping it scars at this rate. I envision telling my grandchildren about living life on the edge and doing yard work in flip-flops. Oh, yes! I live dangerously!
I can’t believe you’re still reading this. You deserve a prize! I would offer you a trophy for being a faithful reader, but I have none to spare. See, I was the child that never earned any trophies in sports but one. And that wasn’t until I was sixteen and got a hole-in-one, so I’m keeping that one.
Well, since you’re still here, feel free to stay and chat a while. That’s what the comments section is for, I don’t want to be the one doing all the talking. What trophies have you earned? How about scars? Do you consider your scars trophies?!
