Have you ever been in a new relationship and thought everything was going well and then there was that moment when you thought “OMG, what the heck just happened?” Uh huh, me too! I would love to hear your stories, so please share!
Today I was at the grocery store and the self-serve registers were all busy so I stood in line at a regular check out. There was just one lady in front of me and she was about done. Well I thought she was. Right as the cashier swiped the the last item and hit the total button, the lady started talking about where she was from, and what is was like way back when, blah blah blah. Of course the cashier paid absolutely no attention to the growing line behind me. They were having a good old time jawing away like a couple of cackling hens. Then, just when I thought she was finished and about to pay, she pulled out a check book. Who does that these days? Not only was it a check she wanted to write, it was an out of state check. Arghhhhh! 😦 Need I say more? I left my items on the conveyer belt and walked out.
On reflection, and as we get older, do you find there are always a lot of “what if” statements that come to mind? I try not to do it because what’s the point? There are no do-overs in this life but it would be fun just to imagine how life could have been knowing then what we know now. Don’t you agree?
Being a poetry blog I attract a certain kind of reader. I regard lyrics as poetry and like to participate in Song Lyric Sunday each week because I enjoy researching the origin of songs and the emotion behind the lyrics. There I find a different kind of reader. One Liner Wednesdays, on the other hand, are my release and I look for some humor each week rather than trying to impress with something profound. I have discovered that whenever I go down the road of dieting I attract a completely different reader. I wonder who will visit today. Welcome everybody and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
This is a pretty good excuse if your looking for one!
Do you sometimes find yourself so exhausted at the end of the day and wonder why? You’re likely spending way too much time bending and twisting to please other people. It is something I know I am guilty of but just can’t seem to stop.
I found this one liner today and wanted to share it. Good idea right?
If you have a dog or a cat you will understand where I am coming from. I talk to my dogs all day long as if they were people. When I walk them they listen to my problems. I ask them what they are doing and tell them that I have things to do. Sit down! and Come! Let’s go! and Not now! Remarkably they respond to everything I say, not always what I want, but they respond. So when I found this one (two) liner I knew I had to share it. In my opinion there is nothing like a dog.
It occurred to me recently that if stupidity was a crime then almost half of America would be in jail. We were over the worst of COVID 19, fully vaccinated and practically living mask-free. Once our grocery store chain stopped sanitizing the carts and employees removed their masks, I was quite giddy thinking the freedom we had been hoping for was actually here and feeling proud that we had kicked the deadly virus in the butt. As more and more were vaccinated the freer we would all be.
But no! It was short-lived. The virus deniers, primarily right-wing Trump followers, who refuse to wear masks and get the vaccine, are now going down like ten pins. I suppose it would be fair to say that we could almost call it the Republican virus because they seem to be the ones contracting it. I blame Trump, his sycophants and Fox News. They have done a disservice to America by promoting a deadly lie. Just sayin’. What do you think?
