Chances are that you are not an interesting person unless one of the following occurred in your life:

a) Your bathroom was outside your house and you took a flashlight at night to use it.
b) Your clothes washer was outside your house and this was normal where you lived.
c) The clothes line had your underwear hanging on it when family and friends came to visit.
d) You had a car that never saw the inside of a garage the entire time you owned it.

Let me know if you are an interesting person and we'll be friends.

A recent death in the family brings about self-reflection. I've never lived up to my standards and I'm disturbed by that knowledge. But then, I always sell myself short. Or so I am told. Should I believe them or me in this instance? Ah, nuts. Forget about it. I begin at the beginning and I go on to the end, then I stop.

I could use a new head this morning. This one is stuffed and leaking.

If you've never heard the story of Silly Annabelle's Song, please give this a listen. When our children were growing up, we read this story in a book. We made up our tune to the words of the song, which our 40+ year old daughters can still sing today. There were a few missing words from our collective memory last night as we tried to recall the lyrics. After about 32 texts, we found the original Sesame Street version on You Tube. My daughters say that the tune we made up 30 years ago is better than SS' . The story is still cute though. Please watch and listen.

I remember hearing that once you discover the things you really love, you discover you don't have enough time for them. I'm feeling like that right now.

Last Christmas, grandpa was feeling his age and found that shopping for Christmas gifts had become too difficult. So he decided to send checks to everyone instead.

In each card he wrote, "Buy your own present!" and mailed them early.

He enjoyed the usual flurry of family festivities, and it was only after the holiday that he noticed that he had received very few cards in return. Puzzled over this, he went into his study, intending to write a couple of his relatives and ask what had happened. It was then, as he cleared off his cluttered desk that he got his answer. Under a stack of papers, he was horrified to find the gift checks which he had forgotten to enclose with the cards.

As a little girl climbed onto Santa's lap, Santa asked the usual, "And what would you like for Christmas?"

The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped: "Didn't you get my E-mail?"

It was just before Christmas and the magistrate was in a happy mood. He asked the prisoner who was in the dock, 'What are you charged with?'
The prisoner replied, 'Doing my Christmas shopping too early.'
'That's no crime', said the magistrate. 'Just how early were you doing this shopping?'
'Before the shop opened', answered the prisoner.

I've begun to call them "The Black and Blue Writers". They write about human love in a kind of darkness; in the fashion of a solitary being existing apart from humanity. Their writing fascinates me much like a dead bird by the side of the road. The bird may have died from disease or from a car's bumper. IDK. But finding it causes me to study it and I think "How did it come to this place?" Then I think, "I wonder if my presence at the right time might have changed the outcome." Then later I wonder if Fate is consistently immutable. Then I pray that it is not.-pusher

The Santa at the shopping mall was quite surprised when he saw Martha, a woman in her mid-twenties, asking to sit on his lap. We all know Santa doesn't usually take requests from adults, but she smiled at him very nicely and he ended up asking her what she wanted for Christmas.
"Something for my mother, please," she replied.
"Something for your mother? That's very loving and thoughtful of you," smiled Santa. "What would you like me to bring her?"
Emily answered quickly, "A son-in-law."
