Just Like You

A phrase I hear often in advertising, "for people just like you,"  or alternatively, "millions of people just like you."  Stop it.  Right now.

I may be insanely jealous of my own identity, but this makes me furious.  I want to break something.

There. Is. No. One. Else. Just. Like. Me.

Shut up.

Not So Good

Our leader has now stated that, in his opinion, marijuana is no worse than alcohol. 773H, that's hard to dispute, but does that make it a good thing to add mary jane to john barleycorn?  There's a marriage bound to produce undesirable offspring.

Under the Bus

I looked under the bus, and he is right.  Everyone, except you and me, and the guy hollering, "He threw X under the bus," is under the bus.  Oh, wait.  Is that you I see under there, too?

Got out for the first time in six days.  Roads not good, but made it to town.  Went into the bank.  One teller, with a customer.  Next customer waiting turns, looks at me as I enter queue.  "Are you still alive?"  he asks, with obvious amazement.

Yeah, that's a cheery greeting.  I mean, I understand that thirty years ago when I was his principal he no doubt thought I was ancient then.  So no surprise that he was surprised.

But a "I thought you died years ago" is not a great start to one's day.

New Years Day at the Bittermans

Tildy told Herkimer that any Christmas goodies left after today would be thrown in the trash.

Then she ate all the chocolate fudge.
