Scary times

I don’t care to speculate.

It’s scary times.

When you go to the store and all the shelves are almost bare.

When you sit and watch your stocks and 401K plummet.

I know some people have been through this before. It’s scary.

You get to view how immature society can still be. How we can act like animals. But also how we can still act like angels.

Acts of kindness seem to be rarer and rarer. It doesn’t take much to be kind. To do a favor, to help someone in need.

Even stopping your hand for a moment and taking a deep breath and realizing other people are worried sick. It doesn’t help to speculate and it doesn’t take much to be a human.

Let’s be kind.

She

She sits upon a ledge,

I watch her heart beat from afar.

A perfect sunset, sitting Star.

My moment for a moment’s edge.

I hear her sigh, why does she sigh.

As a mile seems to pass by.

A tear breaks the moonlight.

Passing through my heart’s light.

And with her sigh, and with her cry.

She becomes a sunset before my eye.

Not today Satan

I killed my first scorpion the other day.

I opened the garage and it tried to come inside and went under my car. I had to grab a broom to sweep it out from underneath and then stomped on it shouting “You Shall Not Pass!!!”

Not today Satan.

Toilet paper woes

Well apparently this toilet paper craze is a real thing in the states.

Instead of a beer run I went on a toilet paper run with a co worker to Costco and they were totally out! The Costco employee gave me the look when I asked as if to say “you are about 3 hours late moron.”

Then I find this on Amazon…

This should be illegal like up selling water bottles during a natural disaster. Seriously! That’s twice the amount for the comfort of my butt.

I’m thinking of opening a business selling gently used toilet paper on Amazon. I think I could make good money.

Flicker

I once saw a flame flicker until it flickered amongst itself.

It screamed a scream of smokey dreams, and twirled till tendrils floated by.

I missed the warmth I had felt when it was alive.

A fiery existence of wanting that demised.

And in the embers left behind.

I saw a broken image that was mine.

Random

Ring ring ring…

“Hello?”

“Hi Mr. Cushman this is Lawndoctor calling about an annual membership for lawn care. When can we get started?”

“Well I don’t have a lawn anymore…”

“Ok, so we’ll need to adjust your membership?”

“Well I sold my house and don’t have a yard… so yeah, I guess so…”

“Ok we’ll follow up in a couple months then, thanks!”

“But I still won’t have a lawn and there’s hardly any grass in Arizona…”

“Ok… I’ll take you off our call list. CLICK”

In retrospect I should have just led out with the Arizona line. It seemed to work faster.
