I think I’ve been away from my blog long enough.
Facebook had taken over my time and I felt I didn’t need both a blog and a FB page, but ya know what I found??? I’m tired of seeing these cartoons of what I guess are Minions telling that “Life is not always a bed of roses, sometimes you do have to keep an eye out for the pricks”, or “I’ll slap you so hard that even Google won’t be able to find you”. Or the other types of posts that threaten you with the wrath of Khan or that fleas of 1000 camels will infest your arm pits if I don’t repost “this post” within the next 10 minutes, OR, and this is my biggest pet peeve, “I BET YOU CANNOT COME UP WITH A WORD THAT ENDS WITH THE LETTER O!” (or other requests/challenges such as that one).
Well, here are some of those words for you….HELLO? NO? OR ABOUT A COMBO OF THE TWO; HELLNO???
But then if you are a Scrabble playing person like myself, you almost have to accept the dare and then try to figure out how many points you would get IF you WERE playing Scrabble and used words like, Oh, I do not know…how about zydeco, or muchacho, or jalapeno??? (Notice how many words I’ve used so far that even SOUND like O??) How about some BIG O ending words like incommunicado? Or for you piano (there’s another word ending in O!) enthusiasts, how about fortississimo.
Then there is the never-ending cavalcade of “selfies”. I’m sorry, but I really do not care what you look like with your tongue sticking out of your mouth. Or how you look with Saran wrap wrapped all around your big fat head. However, I do find pet selfies quite entertaining.
Or people inviting you to “their farm” via a FB posting…seriously, for a long time I thought one of my friends actually had gone and bought a bunch of pigs and I wondered “where in the hell is she going to keep them”. They didn’t even have a barn. Then she got some sheep and a few chickens. THEN I finally got an invitation to play farm yard or pig pen or whatever it was. LIGHT BULB MOMENT.
I know I’ve been guilty of posting some “uninteresting” things at times, but when I do, it is mainly to keep my family informed of an event which are normally NOT life altering events so others would not likely find them any more interesting than I find the post about… about their lip-smacking bowl of Cheerio’s as cataclysmic news. BUT if that same person had someone make them eggs benedict, with a side dish of fresh strawberries and a pink rose put in a delicate vase and then served it to them in bed, and the person serving that breakfast tray was actually part of the crew from Publisher’s Clearing House, well, now THAT could be a bit more interesting.
But I digress..
In the days to come, there will be more posts. Dan and I have started a new adventure in our lives together and it is called RETIREMENT! And we’ll be sharing it with anyone who cares to tune in!
So, anyway, I’m BAACCCKKKK!!! So please keep checking when ya can!!!
