Memories

I’d better write about this subject while I still have a horse in the race. I have always had a great memory. Of course, the Domestic Despot Karen says I have a very selective memory. I beg to differ. It’s just getting worse. I can remember the most minute details of the most immemorable timesContinue reading “Memories”

Are You Serious?

The Domestic Despot enlightened me yesterday to a website that actually reminds people five times a day that they are going to die. Lovely. You don’t need a website. Go look in the mirror. Beneath all the mascara, make-up, and foundation, etc. you are dying. Underneath the bleached and dyed hair, the colored nails, theContinue reading “Are You Serious?”

Panic on the Titanic

I just got finished watching James Cameron’s Titanic for about the 100th time. It never gets old and I find the storyline as captivating as any. But why was there so much panic on the Titanic? I understand concern and worry, but there was no need to panic on the luxury liner. The trio ofContinue reading “Panic on the Titanic”

Natural Selection?

Why is it, when everything seems to be going great on planet Earth, that Mother Nature rises up, slaps us in the chops and reminds us that our pass in this sphere of existence is all too temporary? The latest death toll spread over 8 different states, is 64. And that is just ONE tropicalContinue reading “Natural Selection?”

Second Chances

There are no second chances. We are undeterred as we push forward with our second offer on a house. We were really hoping the inspection done this morning would be free of any major problems which would cost us, but alas, we have put a repair list together for the sellers to address, or notContinue reading “Second Chances”

Culling the Herd

As the Covid virus continues to morph into more transmittable deadly strains like the Delta variant, once again crippling our nation, there are still people (more than half of the US population) who are not getting vaccinated. Fine. More for the rest of us. I wouldn’t kiss your ass to get a shot, because frankly,Continue reading “Culling the Herd”

Noodles

We call different things noodles: An adolescent kid’s under-developed arms. The human head. Brains. Top Ramen. I grew up eating bowls of them chocked full of God-knows-what. Osoba and Yakisoba were staples growing up in Japan and when I say God-knew-what, only he (or she) knew what found their ways into our bowls. Seriously. VariouslyContinue reading “Noodles”

Dusk

Our favorite time together. The day is exhausted and literally dying of thirst as the heat escapes the scorched earth and seeps skyward through the remaining stubborn streaks of grey. Yes, I have finally had time to cool down and really think about this. The logical thing (and I do fancy myself as a logicalContinue reading “Dusk”

Crying

I am a crybaby. I admit it. It’s hard to refute when you are sitting there watching a sad movie and the waterworks begin. Since it is part of me, I’ve never cared to downplay it. I’m not embarrassed by it; it’s just who I am. I used to tell my friends I would kickContinue reading “Crying”

Despair

Despair is the emotion you don’t wish on anyone, or at least you shouldn’t. To take away someone’s hope is “the unkindest cut of all.”Sometimes it is the only thing left to take away from a person. That and personal pride, something I have always had way too much of. Despair is the emotion coveredContinue reading “Despair”
