Things that make you go... wait, what?

Friends,

It happens more than I care to admit. Lost in thought, watching the ordinary world pass me by. Then, cue the random event, followed by a double-take and an inward chuckle. What sort of random events? I’m glad you asked! Here are a few examples I found particularly amusing.

  • A ladder leaning on power lines. Wait, what? Never mind, those are actually cable and phone lines. Safe? Probably not. Then again, I suppose that might explain your next internet outage.
  • An ancient vampire-squid named after Joe Biden. Wait, what? Ancient… check! Vampire… that would explain a lot. Squid… maybe! An honor? An insult? Both? I suppose only Joe and the Squid can answer those questions.
  • Olive Garden has rotisserie… guinea pig. Wait, what? Sure, they do! Of course, given Ecuador’s lassez-faire approach to trademarks I seriously doubt this Olive Garden has any relation to those in the U.S.
  • Krispy Kreme has a donut filled with a Twix bar. Wait, what? I know what you’re thinking: another wasted alliteration opportunity (Kit Kat Krispy Kreme, anyone?)

What double-takes have you done this week?

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! ;-)
