Flimsy Whimsy

It ain’t Hallmark, but I don’t care what anyone says. “Word to your mother” is a great way to say both “See ya later” AND “Regards to your mom, dude.”

Management foolishly asked us for ideas about where to hold the budget meeting. I, of course, recommended the garden area, for purposes of fertilization.

The Ruler Hypothesis: the closer one nears the administration building, the less likely it is that the snack and soda machines will be out of order or product.

Did you know that cremation is now more common than burial? Many people don’t. I’ve been an advocate for most of my adult life. I still think it’s a better idea if we wait until after they’ve passed to do either, at least for most people

Very unpopular observation: When I see the older generation mocking kids for eating Tide Pods, I wonder if they realize their own bias. Most of them used a product that was very clearly marked: “Poison: using this product will lead to your death and harm those around you.” Yet, they smoked like there was no tomorrow, convincing themselves that scientific evidence didn’t relate to them. With the Tide Pod fiasco, those doing it are young and immature – and hurt only themselves. Both smoking and consuming Tide Pods are idiotic, but it’s hard not to laugh at the hypocrisy of the older folks who enjoy pointing their smoke-stained fingers at the younger generation, whose sin is that of being young and stupid.

P.S. I don’t know about y’all, but I was a bona fide moron when I was younger.

P.P.S. Given the insistence of people to convolute any point made, I’d like to point out that I am not saying that the youth of today is dumber than we are; quite the opposite. It’s glib and easy to laugh at those will be in charge soon enough for the idiocy of a very few, while overlooking the fact that the world as we now know it is the way it is because of both our actions and inaction.

I am so bad at emergency resuscitation that I accidentally killed the CPR dummy.

I sat at the window for 10 minutes listening to jazz wafting on the wind until I realized someone was using a broken accordion as a chair.

I think that the Housekeeping Department really missed the boat when it named it’s new men’s softball team: Dukes of BioHazzard.
