Last night was once again a success. Hank the dog who normally wants to bite the face off of any stranger who comes to the front door turned into the charming King of Halloween per usual.
Boomer unfortunately feel asleep shortly after donning his peacock costume.
The peacocks in the neighborhood were very confused by the whole situation and kept coming to the front door to check out Hank who was on post.
My favorite costume of the night was a young man in a suit with a hello my name is tag that said ‘sorry’. He took one look at my face and could tell I was confused when he said, ‘I can tell my costume is perplexing to you. In case you’re wondering, I’m a formal apology.’
Punny costumes rock!
This morning as Mom and I walked the dogs we saw candy wrappers everywhere. Most of them were empty, except for one, a pack a skittles. We only noticed because a neighborhood squirrel was ripping the package open and having an eating frenzy. When we got a little too close he ran up the tree with his skittle package and little skittles falling from the sky. It was hilarious! I’m going back to same area later to see if he has a sugar high.
Have you ever worked with people that drove you crazy? Have you ever wanted to quit a job so badly it just drove you nuts? Well, so did Syd Hardy, who worked for Nippybus. This is a portion of the email he sent to his employees:
“There is a difference between giving up and knowing when you have had enough,” the note continued. “I have had enough and realise I cannot work with you, the people I employ, a moment longer. There comes a time in any relationship when you just have to say ‘Fuck it’, say goodbye and move on. This is my time! I am quitting to pursue my dream of not having to work here.
The gates are now closed and will not open so you can stay in your scratchers and have a lie in.”
Call me Syd, you’re the type of guy I’d like to have a beer with!
I was watching the Wendy Williams show yesterday when she passed out. Did any of you catch that? And if you did, did you think it was part of the show at first because I did. That was crazy. I hope she is okay and doesn’t push herself just because she has such a strong work ethic. Maybe she could take a day off and hang out with Syd…
One more thing, I had my appointment with the sports therapist yesterday. After an hour and a half I walked out feeling great, not because of the session so much but because on my list of ‘homework’ to do, the second thing was ‘run’! Hell yes, this is my kind of therapist. I should probably fax his orders to all the doctors who told me running was bad for me and I just might.
WTF, it’s Wednesday, and in spite of all the things going on in this crazy world, I hope we can all have a laugh and enjoy life, if only for a minute. It’s good for your soul.
