I’ve always wanted to hunker down. I’ve never had the opportunity to do it that I know of￼. What if I did have the opportunity but didn’t recognize it and may not ever have the opportunity again. I’ve been robbed of the experience of hunkering. I’m not sure what hunkering really is. I hear it … More Hunker down!!!
I have been requested to find out where the phrase ‘wake up and smell the coffee’ originated. Wow! Can opened, worms everywhere. It is really a hot topic where a number of people seemingly coined the phrase, including Ann Landers. That beats the second best, ‘wake up and smell the burnt bacon’ coined by Alice … More Wake up and smell the whatever!!!
Yesterday someone told me that I was the spitting image of my father. Naturally, I decked the guy. Comparing me and my father to some spit. The nerve.￼ What exactly is a spitting image? What immediately comes to mind is someone with the camera taking a picture of some spittle on the sidewalk. What is … More Spittin’ Image!!!
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and I’ve often said that it is the worst day of the year for men. You have to get flowers, take her out to dinner, give her chocolates or her favorite treat. and there’s still no guarantee that you’ll get what you want. Seriously, who wants to go out and wait … More I have to send them where???
That’s it. I’ve had it! I think I’m going to quit my job today. I know I’m disabled and retired and my only real jobs around the house are doing the dishes, folding laundry, and keeping the toilets clean. I don’t mind cleaning the toilets or doing the dishes, But I absolutely hate doing laundry. … More You want me to do what???
It’s very annoying to me that during an interview some people ask and answer their own questions. Example: “Do I think this is lame? Yes.”￼￼ Seriously, for some reason it drives me nuts. I used to have a teacher who would do the same thing. We were never able to answer the question that was … More Am I what!?!?
We’ve all heard the term happy as a clam but I think that would not apply to the clams that are harvested for food. Hey, I love clams as much as the next guy but I just don’t think they’re all happy even though they have that gigantic smile. I think I would much rather … More Happy as a what???
