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.

I Have Proof: Escaped Gorillas of Dallas Texas

I walked up to my truck in Dallas. There on the parking lot beside the left front tire was a freshly discarded banana peel.

My first thought was: "Wow, I hope that banana peel doesn't cause a loss of traction and cause a wreck"

Second thought: "Wow, I hope the gorilla that escaped from the zoo is caught before he does more damage (more littering)"

Third thought: "Wow, I can't wait to put this in Facebook"

Fourth thought: "Remember to put the word 'Wow' at the beginning of each thought even though I didn't actually say Wow, there was a Wow feeling"

Fifth thought: "Wow, I had better take a picture of this banana peel or no one will believe me."

How Does It Feel To Be An Abandoned Unloved Banana Peel?

CSI: If you look very close you can see my reflection in the shiny part of the hub cap.

S.Stauss: I thought it was a wonderfully funny event. I had just left the Jason's deli a few minutes before and had been working on my new soup poem while walking across the parking lot when I saw the banana peel. Sleep deprivation can be a gentle warper of your creative process. I just now remembered that after driving away down E Mockingbird Lane that I had the thought, "I wonder if birds eat banana peels?"
I distinctly remember the East part of the street address because the night before we had ate there after getting horribly lost trying to find the restaurant while traveling the entire length West Mockingbird Lane one and a half times. I didn't realize until the next day that my iPad automagically shows my position on its mapping feature, so its like having a GPS unit. My wife is the one to "blame" because she is the one who found the restaurant address on the separate laptop device without indicating East or West, she simply fed me a street address after I had gone into a conv store looking for other nearby soup-able restaurants. We promised to never tell our children this story of lostness.
