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?
Last week was not such a good one for me and neither was this week. I’ve had a lot on my plate trying to manage a difficult family health situation which has been most stressful. So when I came across this one liner I thought “Perfect!” I have felt in need of a Fairy Godmother lately and that is exactly what I would have said to her!
