Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



The Adoption Agency Turns Me Down for Quite Obvious Reasons

Lack of sleep OR something worse(?): 

As I am pouring BBQ sauce onto some very fine pork just as the bottle is almost empty, I tell myself, "Hmm, looks like I need to get some more gasoline today" - the really strange part of that statement is that I switched from gasoline to diesel 6 months ago.

The not-quite-as-strange thing about that sentence is that my spell checker likes the word "Hmm" but thinks "Hmmm" is a typographical error. It offers this list of alternative spellings:

  • Hmm
  • Hm mm
  • Hm-mm
  • Hmm m
  • Hammy

But notice, no "Ham" - Didn't it notice that I had just been talking about "very fine pork" ?

I should name my next child " Hammy ", (that rhymes with my wife's name)

Then when I want a nickname for my little girl Hammy it can be shortened to "Hmmm".

Then when I call her "Hmmm" and someone says, "Did you just call your daughter 'Him' ?", I will respond, "no, Hmmm", and they will instinctively say, "Oh, 'Hammy'!"

I am also in the process of linking my poetry blog entries together. This project is only partially finished. A "Poetry LINK" at the bottom of the blog entry points to the next older piece of poetry.
