Abdel's Question

Thursday after the WYOS group met, I was headed out to have lunch at a nearby coffee shop with a couple of the women. Abdel asked me if I had a minute. Well, if you've read the previous post about communication, etc., you may remember I'd hinted this concerned a cart-before-the-horse bit... What he... Sign in to see full entry.

I CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH.

I don't need to be "educated" about the evils of a certain philosophy. I don't like being told that I just don't know what's good for me, and it really pisses me off when a blogger responds to folks who disagree with his point of view that they just don't know what they're talking about. Oh, and I... Sign in to see full entry.

COMMUNICATION 101

So yesterday when the WYOS group found their chairs and set their notebooks ready to write – me, six other women and Abdel – I was still of a mind to head off his intention to clear up their confusion about the Mafia vs terrorists. My intro focused on there being two parts to communication – the... Sign in to see full entry.

Failure to Communicate

That line in "Cool Hand Luke" "What we have here is a failure to communicate," is a classic that fits so many situations these days. I'm midstream in just such a situation.

DÉJÀ VU ALL OVER AGAIN

Yesterday I was at Walgreen’s – flu shot – and as I left the store I said Hi to Linda Brubaker, who stood at the edge of the parking lot, bike helmet, backpack, a couple shopping bags, looking up at gathering storm clouds. She came along with me as I headed for the car, mentioned how she hasn’t seen... Sign in to see full entry.

HATS WITH SPIDERS

A couple years ago I learned how to crochet a giant spider doily to sew onto an orange & black striped beanie for Halloween. I sent a couple hats to my daughter, who celebrates the holiday with style. About two weeks ago she told me they need a few more of them as the gang is going glamping (glamor...

PROPHESY

A few weeks ago I made the mistake of answering the door to a couple of Jehovah’s Witness missionaries. The two ladies were passing out the latest issue of the Watchtower and asked me about the neighbors – if I knew whether or not they were home… I pointed out that the people two doors up were nuns...

Truth can be stranger than fiction

Some time back I wrote a sci fi short story about an astronaut who couldn't wait to get back to base because he was jonesing for for a Big Mac. By the time he got through all the protocol and went to Mickey D's, he found the food chain had gone vegan. Today I saw an article that McDonald's is market... Sign in to see full entry.

GO, CUBBIES! (stop trump)

107-YEAR PLANETARY ALIGNMENT… Once again this baseball season, the Chicago Cubs are in the playoffs – and may very well compete for the World Series championship for the second year in a row. After a 107-year dry spell, when they couldn’t even buy a chance at bragging rights, it’s been a great... Sign in to see full entry.
