Donut Mock Me

Life is full of opportunities to smile, smirk or even laugh out loud. All you need is a little curiosity, imagination and chance. Here's what I mean.
  • Coke is promoting a new product called Coca Cola Energy. As my son Pablo observed, maybe they're bringing back the original recipe (you know, the one with cocaine). That'll keep you going!
  • Comedy 103.1 is broadcast from the Frank Azar Studios. Odd choice if you ask me, after all, personal injury is no laughing matter. That said, I can't help but wonder, what happens if laughing at a stand-up routine makes you crash your car? Do you call the strong arm to sue the radio station?
  • Next time you're hiking, carry a doggy waste bag filled with something slightly bulky --maybe a donut or two. Then, keep an eye out for the looks of befuddlement and disgust, as folks realize you don't have a dog with you. What were you doing in the woods?
How about you? Care to share a humorous thought association? While you think about it, I leave you with Naomi Haverland's "sunny smiles and dandelaughter" --well, my selfie bastardization of the mural.

Happy Friday!

BIrds of a Feather

Friends, The early bird catches the worm, however, as the sun rises I’d much rather have a Denver omelet than a diet of worms . Ready to fly the coop, my ducks all in a row, I ponder one more time whether a bird in hand is truly worth two in the bush. Egged-on by my quest to tuck away a nest egg, I’ve decided to change industries and hope that, like the phoenix, my career will also rise from the ashes of change. After all, I’m no spring chicken –my crow’s feet and gray bely my age – however, I have to trust my judgment and believe you can’t catch this old bird with chaff (whether or not folks think me an odd bird for my actions). And so I shall attempt to soar like an eagle, aware that counting my chickens before they hatch would be ill-advised. As I learn to talk turkey in the language of cybersecurity, I will endeavor not to hide my head in the sand, choosing instead to be like a duck – calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath! And while my excessive use of bird-inspired

Love and Marriage go together like a Horse and... Donut!

Friends, My family gained a new daughter last week. As I welcome the freshly minted Mrs. Gonz├ílez, I wish the new couple a lasting, loving, happy and tranquil marriage. I am also reminded of a special delivery I received at the wedding. A few weeks ago, my niece/goddaughter held a “go fund me” and offered to stitch something for the donors. I, of corse, asked for a horse jumping through a donut. The completed masterpiece depicting this unlikely combo now has a special place in my office, and brings a smile to my face every time I see it. That said, I may forgo the obligatory donut today and opt for some of the leftover cake we still have at the house. Happy Friday!   New addition to the Family Horse through donut  with the artist   Horse through donut at it’s new home shelf P.S. The donut wall in action.

Life is Smiling!

Friends, You know life is good when even dinner smiles at you. That said, digging into smiley soup can pose a dilemma. At a conscious level, you know it’s just inert food. Inanimate, unsentient, incapable of emotion or feeling. Still, those cute cross eyed egg eyes and that little pepper smile are saying ”I’m your friend” —and friends don’t eat friends. Naming your anthropomorphic dish only makes matters worse. Eventually, being the monster I am, hunger wins. Mmmm, delicious! (Sorry, Sally). Speaking of which, maybe skip the smiley faces on that next dozen donuts. Happy Friday! ;-)
