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.

What My Wife Is Up To

‎"I'm the funny one today!" - I didn't say that. Just a little wellness barometer for you on how the main girl in my life is doing.

"It's all uphill from here!", she says smiling.

I tell her that she really wanted the word 'downhill', that she has the saying backwards.

She responds, smiling even bigger, "No, I'm going to be happier!" - making a 'see the corners of my mouth go UP when I smile' face.

Later in the day ...

"I need to write a letter to the makers of Popsicles, let 'em know that their orange Popsicles are terrible".

I tried one. I agree with her, they are pretty worthless.

Well, I s'ppose if a building was on fire and all you had were a whole bunch of orange Popsicles, then they wouldn't be totally worthless. But then when the news media found out about it and turned orange Popsicles into heros, then they would make even more of them, and then there would be even more sadness, first for people who bought the Popsicles to eat, and then for the equally sad unloved Popsicles just sitting there waiting to be bought. Sitting there in the cold, and the dark (inside their container), hoping for another building to catch on fire.

My favorites are the lime. Glad she is feeling happy.

My favorites are the strawberry bars made from real strawberries. But I like them a little too much, therefore I rarely buy them. Dallas was fun to some degree, being somewhere different, getting interesting food, saw some art galleries, but it is difficult to go that long with no and very little sleep, and missing your dog.

It has been 2 years and I still miss my dog, but I do get to sleep. Mostly.

I think they put the popsicles in a multi-flavor bag so you have to buy the flavors you don't like. I only like the red ones. (I'm sure I spelled popsicles wrong, but I'm too lazy to google the right spelling.)

Jewels: congratulations! You spelled Popsicle correctly, but I only know this because my curiosity was ever so slightly stronger than my laziness and I googled it. I noticed that their logo has the Pop with a blue background and the sicle with a red background. When I reach the pinnacle of an unlazy moment some time nebulously soon, I'll add some color to my Popsicle words, as well as a trademark symbol ®, yawn, well, after a nap ... zzzzzz
