Damn Pam Pizza on Her Mind!

My wife, Cute Judy Lee, has pizza on her mind. It’s ‘Are we going to get pizza today?’ Yes, every day, in the evening, afternoon and in the early morning too.

Cheese pizza…

hold the pepperoni …

Onions, garlic, and green and hot peppers too.

Add basil and I’ll sprinkle with Italian seasoning and yes some Fairy Dust too.

When it’s not pizza, well it’s her imaginary Pam that’s nagging her a lot of the time.

You said Pam again!!! Who is Pam anyway?

Honey, there never was, is or ever will be a Pam!

It’s only you, you see?

“Who is that knocking loudly at the door!?” She asks.

Ahh!!!

It’s just Pam, the pizza delivery madam’ that you do hear!

I do fear!

50 Shades of Sexism!

The above photo is of a Wader Bird and I just added sunglasses and a purse … just because!

Waders are birds commonly found along shorelines and mudflats that wade in order to forage for food in the mud or sand. They are called shorebirds in North America, where the term “wader” is used to refer to long-legged wading birds such as storks and herons.

Enough of that, I fear!

============

Getting to the point:

I have been mildly chided for being sexist in my post, “50 Shades of Cat Liter!

Maybe it was the lines:

You see, I feel that woman pick men like they pick their cats.  It’s Fifty Shades of Cat Litter!

For men, it’s may be more basic and mostly instinctual: Five Shades of Doggy Bags and Chinese Take-Out!

Or maybe it was this particular line:

This is all becoming too confusing for me as a sexist old fool. 

Or maybe it was the whole damn post itself!

************

My reply was:

Maybe sexist toward both sexes…

Maybe just humor and a play on a popular theme…

Maybe just maybe…people who label people sexist are maybe themselves sexist…

🎊🎉************🎉🎊

And the band played on

And the World continued to spin

And we all marched on

With *whatever* on our chin!

What Do You See!?

Inspired by Dymoon, dymoonblog, “Windows!”

What do you see when you look out your window?

Looking out my condo window

I see a pond with occasional ducks

the odd water bird

even the rare horror

of an eel fish

taking down a duckling

or a little critter

that waded to far

for too long.

I see lifeless apartments

with windows shaded and closed.

A water fountain

spraying jets into the air

for decorative

dramatic

and aerating effect.

I see life.

I see the outside world.

Things that trigger

memories from the past

or even

answer questions

for the present and future.

But essentially

I see

“The Now!’

And then …………

I have to pee!

Hello? Is Anyone There!?

Not to long ago, if we saw somebody “walking and talking” aloud to themselves we would assume they’re maybe crazy!

But now in the age of hand-machines like the iPhone, we do think briefly,

‘Is he or she crazy?’

But quickly realize they are just “talking to someone while walking or even driving” with a foggy brain and glazed eyes!

Yes! We surely realize they’re not crazy!

No … No … No!

They’re more likely semi-stupid!

A Free New You … A Free New Me!

Just a couple of Free New Bees!

What’s with the overuse of the words ‘Free & New’ Anyhow!?

Marketers know there are potent words in advertising, like “Free” and “New.” Neuroscientists have now determined that the appeal of “new” is hard-wired into our brains.

Novelty activates our brain’s reward center, which may have been an evolutionary advantage to our ancestors as they encountered new food sources or other elements of survival.

Same-same with the modern bloggers!?

Today, we are no longer hunters and gatherers, but more and more bloggers and ‘like’ dopamine gatherers! Yet, the novelty-seeking circuitry is still active and makes us find new followers and even repackaged old blog posts) attractive.

Just curious to see if it really works!
