Anyway, back to today's post. Life has not been overly humorous lately but I'm trying so work with me here.
I love this joke. My friend reminded me of it the other night after a bit of tequila and we were talking about the rumor that a Dallas Cowboy football player has bought the property behind our house:
What do the Dallas Cowboys and Billy Graham have in common?She did a good job telling the joke. I need more tequila to tell good jokes (or dance).
The ability to fill a stadium with 70,000 people shouting "Jesus Christ!"
That's right. Down here in Texas, our relationship with the Dallas Cowboys drives us to drink or find religion. Maybe both. I'm ready for baseball and I'm sure the Texas Rangers will drive me to the edge of sanity again this year.
As for our proposed new neighbor, we have yet to see anybody at the property. One would think the owner might have at least visited the property. The other part of the rumor is that they are going to tear down the airplane hangar (SACRILEGE!) and build an "all green" house.
Hum....can't they pick some other color of paint? I bet all that green will get really boring.
Yeah. OK. I know that's not what they are talking about but I couldn't resist. The other rumor is that they have since sold the property to someone else. Whatever.
It's been raining here for the last few days and it's effing cold. I know. it's my fault. I complained about it being too dry and I was enjoying the warm weather. Mother Nature is up to her usual tricks. The rain must come all at once and we must be humbled with cold weather. Thanks, Mom. That slap in the face hurt!
With the rain and the full moon we've had, I've encountered some very grumpy folks lately. Can't anyone deal with a non-ideal situation without complaining?
At the gym where I work, here's a few of my favorites this week (and they really do sound like geese sometimes):
1. Why aren't the TV's working?
[Pasting on plastic smile, fighting off evil twin]: They're working on it. There is a lot of construction here. Anything could have happened. Yes. We paid the the bill. I'm sorry you can't watch March Madness. I can't watch Fox News butcher yet another news story, check out the latest infomercial, or better yet, I can't watch Oprah.
Yeah right. I don't watch Oprah. Don't get me started.
2. "Can't you turn the music up?", said the whining member. "I can't hear it. Without the TV's we need louder music."
Evil twin: Ever think of saying Please?
3. Same person, a few minutes later, with a huge shoulder-dropping sigh, "You turned the music down."
Yes. I can't hear to talk to members that are asking me questions at the front desk.
Evil twin: There is no pleasing you today, huh?
I know. I'm in a non-ideal situation and I'm complaining. That's irony for you.
May you be free of whining geese today.
