I decided to participate today in Duane Scott’s Pleasantly Disturbed Blog Carnival today with some random thoughts of my own. Not that I ever experience randomness. I’m the queen of . . . SQUIRREL!
- Now where was I? Oh, one thing about Duane. He does have a habit about sticking his foot in his mouth when it comes to old things. Like I don’t remember exactly what he last said, but it had something to do with being old. I do remember calling him on it.
- Which reminds me of the lady in our church who was asked what the best thing was about turning 107. She answered, “The total lack of peer pressure.”
- She was also once asked if she needed a ride to her 100th birthday party. She responded, “No, my son’s taking me. But he IS 80, and he doesn’t get around like he used to.”
- I read that women “my age” should use an eyelash curler. S’posed to open up our eyes. Should men “my age” use them, too? Would that let them doze off with their eyes open, and we gals would think they were really paying attention?
- Startled by an elephant getting a bath as I drove past the fairgrounds. I guess there’s a circus. What if the animals revolted and ran the show?
- My dentist’s torture assistant told me about her daughter who works for a soft serve ice cream place. She said she’s only received one complaint–that the ice cream melted. Duh!
- True confession: When I was a kid, I used to day dream about going to a Tigers baseball game. Bases loaded. Two outs. Down by 3 runs. Nobody available to bat. (I don’t know why. Maybe they were all sick or injured.) The manager looked over the crowd, and his eyes locked with mine. I stepped up to the plate, hefted the bat, and whacked that ball out of the park.
- Why are silos round? Because a rectangular silo develops air pockets that encourage spoilage. A cylindrical silo is also more likely to withstand a high wind. By the way, Franklin Hiram King developed the first one more than 100 years ago. No relation.
Speaking of kings . . .
