I spend a lot of time on foot these days, so I am afforded more opportunities to observe people and I have developed some new names for certain types of people.
This is my current favorite. You’re walking along and someone comes out of a store and they don’t pay any attention to you, they simply pull out in front and inevitably walk at the pace of a three year old. They are usually in a number greater than one so you’re stopped dead. It’s just like a large truck pulling out in front of you knowing full well you have no course of action other than to stop.
I may sound like a bitter old curmudgeon but I’m really not. It’s the definition of this blog—I’m amazed at how people can act because it often goes against the core beliefs and common sense that were instilled in me, but at the same time I’m amused at how different we can be and how crazed I can get over the simplest things. The more I learn to laugh the better off I’ll be. And I’ll pass it on.
Weekly random thoughts. Since I’m self-employed it’s my version of water cooler talk: no one to talk to so it goes out to cyberspace.
I’ll bet porcupines just want to be loved.
If there was ever a need for an example of life in an inanimate object just look at the pistachio and it’s reluctance to be eaten.
I’ll bet collard greens are very jealous of kale getting all the attention and people thinking that kale is a “new” vegetable while they’re old-fashioned cooking.
Just think of all the freshmen starting college, finding out what they want to do with their life with wide-eyed enthusiasm, no idea just what a mountain of debt will feel like five years from now.
Chickens must absolutely freak out if they ever saw one of their babies colored.
I wonder if shoelaces “feel it” when you tie a double knot?
I wonder if bugs wish there was human repellant?
I’ll bet fire hydrants are bitter, people are always taking, never giving.
I wonder if it was predestined when they called the decision makers of a company the “board” that we have such corporate machines that are stiff and inflexible.
Sorry, I have to take the lazy way out today, but for anyone like me that doesn’t have television, you might have missed this and for all that read my blog about him, it’s done by a guy who knows, Billy Crystal.
“So we can’t text anyone?’
“How do we keep in touch?”
“You go up to someone and you talk.”
“I guess there is no life after death.”
