Honey, I'm Home !

Ok, Ok, I know I'm late but I have an excuse. Today was insurance, auto tag and Publix day, which I successfully accomplished. It's just that it took a tiny bit longer than I had planned. See, I was fine until the hood slammed shut on my hand (You've used that one already. Oh, right !).

Ok, the truth is that my brain wasn't in concert with my body today and I screwed up a few things, starting with getting up late. When I got to the insurance agency, the owner and my friend Carmen, had to recalculated the issue date because it seems someone procrastinated in purchasing the policy. So, I blamed it on Shithead.

The tag agency was slam, bam, thank you ma'am, so I stopped to get some of that good gas that they're selling today. It must be good, 'cause it was $3.35 per gallon. My friend, Eddie, put some air in my tires and after we shot the bull for a while, I left for Publix. Half way there, I realized that I must have had a senior moment because I failed to pump the good gas into my car. Eddie thought it was funny.

Never go food shopping when you're hungry and agitated. At Publix, I was almost finished when I noticed a kid with long baggy shorts and a baggy shirt. The masterpiece was topped off with a baseball cap, carefully worn to the side so as to mimic cheetah, co-star of the Trazan movies. The final "Pierre Cardin" look was the gold teeth. I felt so shabby. The funny thing is that the kid is latin and I used to date his aunt. He's what we call a "wannabe". Don't ask about the bill. I had to finance it !      

The Pictures: Check out the re-touched picture of  a novel new way to beat traffic, the "usual suspects" and some pictures for Indigo. Late post script.  Anyone notice the "nappy hoe?".

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:

I'm not saying the lady was old, I'm just saying that when she applied to medical school, they accepted her application and classified her as a cadaver. 

That's it for today my little early birds. More tomorrow.

Stay Tuned !

HA HA on the cadaver!!  One of the most unusual outfits I ever saw was an older dark black woman wearing a gold lamae dress, gold hose, shiny gold shoes, gold hat and when she smiled, she wore a gold tooth in front. I have often wondered if she is able to change the gold tooth to silver if she wears an all-silver outfit.

Hope your tuesday is not a monday-repeat!!

P.S. pass me a bloody mary or four!

I honestly detest the wannabe rapper attire. The clothes are too big and ugly as all get out. Whatever happened to trying to dress to impress. As for the hats and the way these idiots wear them.....don't get me started. I went out to eat last week at the Olive Garden and wanted to walk up to 3 different guys smack the hat off there heads and ask them if their mother's taught them any manners, to take the damn thing off while your at the table. Loved the dragonfly picture hon! And yes, I am playing catch up. Have my daughter staying with me for a few weeks and she tends to monopolize my computer. (Hugs) Indigo
