Karma - I Truly Believe but I Believe in Ice Cream, Too!

What goes around comes around? Universal balance? Sounds good to me.

Cat karma: I will never understand the cat species. Cat's own personal water bowl contains water sans green slimy stuff, bugs, and other detritus but the big white porcelain bowl is more appealing. This happens even when Cat knows he will get in trouble for jumping on said porcelain beast and leaving his dirty paw prints all over the seat. Yeah, I know. I could leave the lid down but.....let's not go there!

From the cat's perspective, he makes his own karma. I'm starting to become frightened of my cat. It's best not to anger him as my neighbor has been looking for a missing cat.....


Hum....it appears my cat found it, looked at it, and turned it to stone. OOPS!

Ha!

I'm so sorry about that. It was lame but it's hot here and my brains are fried.

Speaking of neighbors, one of them called last week and asked that I keep fat furry beast inside as she has baby wrens in her garage. Well, um, yeah, right. My cat is too old to catch anything unless he has help. Maybe I should ask that her birds not come over here and poop on me when I'm working in the yard or maybe she could make her owls be quiet when we're trying to sleep. Sheesh! Neighbors.


Driving karma: A teenage driver, obviously enjoying the first few days of freedom from school, makes a left turn in front of me, failing to yield. No collision occurred but I don't think he had a clue. I'm not sure my horn made it thru the teenage boy's think noggin. Afterall, he was coming from the swim center where the females of the species were walking around in swimming attire. I'm sure he was very focused on driving. Uh huh. Maybe he's forgotten everything he learned or didn't learn in driver's training. See this post, for a satirical outlook of my experience with drivers in training.

Back to the karma: A few minutes later, I stupidly end up in the wrong lane and have to drive assertively to get over and then I do a horrible job of parking at the gym where I work on Monday mornings. SIGH!

Here's one that's a little hard to do sometimes. When you're angry, changing your thoughts to something positive and then all of a sudden finding yourself doing something nice for someone for no reason at all.

Wait! WHO AM I KIDDING?

Actually, that really did happen. Well, at least once that I can remember, and it's better than trying to find yet another place to bury a body.

Um, sorry, again. That was my evil twin. Really, there are no bodies. I promise.

OK! It's time to sweeten things up around here. It's starting to warm up and this reminds me of when we first moved into this neighborhood. The popular gathering was an "Ice Cream Social". Bring your favorite homemade ice cream or tub of Blue Bell (more about Blue Bell when the HDBC tour comes to Cowtown). Hubby and I are thinking Coffee or Cinnamon Ice Cream or maybe even plain old Chocolate or Vanilla. I have an uncle who used to make vanilla ice cream at the family get together. Yum!

I was a little....er...disappointed at our first neighborhood function. The big thing was "Bubble Gum" ice cream. ICK! Have you ever tried it? It's made with Big Red soda pop and supposedly tastes like bubble gum. To me, it's absolutely nasty.

Now it's your turn. Tell me a good karma story and your favorite ice cream, homemade or whatever.

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma, chameleon....

Heh heh, I couldn't resist!

I think I need to borrow your cat as there are a couple of cats around here that I would like him to "look" at. heh heh

Jean Knee said...

I don't know any Karma story--if it's a true force I'm in trouble

but I like chocolate ice cream- not homemade

ReformingGeek said...

@Quirky - Sing it, Girl. As for kitteh, I'll get the crate and ship him today!

@Jean - Umm....chocolate.

Nooter said...

i think you should keep your cat indoors too, preferably in a box in the freezer, hee hee!

Wonderful muse and day in the life antics karmic post. (did that sentence make any sense at all? and I'm a writer. Good grief)

Firm believer in karma here. I like to do little things that help out peeps. Like if I notice a single mom in the grocery line struggling over what items she has to put back cuz the tab is gonna be more than she can afford for her hungry li'l blunders, if I have some extra cash I'll slip a ten or twenty spot to the cashier and ask him or her to apply it to the bill of that young lady's behind me. Then I just leave - no need for immediate appreciation or gratification cuz what goes around comes around.

bubble gum ice cream is made with Big Red soda pop? (whatever that is) Learn something new every day. Is that how actual bubble gum is made? Just curious. I loved bubble gum ice cream when I was a young one; it had actual pieces of gum...two treats in one.

I only like 1 flavor of ice cream. Coldstone.

dizzblnd said...

I can't think of any karma stories at the moment. Although I LOVE ice cream.. it hates me.. but my favorite is anything that has the words double, chocolate and/or death

Marissa said...

About 25 years ago when I was 8 months preggers and going in for a check-up, I pulled into the hospital parking lot. As I waddled away from my car, a 70 year-old witch pulled up and screamed at me for "stealing" the space she had her eye on.

I moved my car and let her have the spot. I'm sure she's dead now; I'm still alive. Sometimes it takes long for karma.

ReformingGeek said...

@Nooter - Cat-cycles just for you, Nooter.

@Marvin - You are one of the good ones!

@mama-face - yeah. I remember that stuff. I could eat it then. I don't think it was made with Big Red.

@dizzblnd - Amen.

@Marissa - You have a big heart. I would have told that woman to stick it where the sun don't shine.

The Constant Complainer said...

A buddy of mine was getting divorced and his wife kept calling him at work saying, "The Karma is going to get you." To this day, that still makes me laugh.

Great post. I hate crazy teenage drivers by the way...

♥georgie♥ said...

I am fixing to have a teen driver and I am askeered very skeered!!!!

I am cracking up at your photo disclaimer at the bottom of this post!

ReformingGeek said...

@Constant - Thanks. That is funny. I think he'd better hope it isn't true.

@georgie - Hey there, Okie Girl. Glad you're back. Thanks for noticing my disclaimer. I always try to make it entertaining. Good Luck with the driving kids.

Hit 40 said...

Neighbors!! Why does a cat bother them? They keep the neighborhood clean from mice and chipmunks!!

Maureen said...

I like to believe in Karma... when I do something good, that is.

Otherwise, when I am hoping it doesn't bite me in the butt... it's hogwash. ;)

ReformingGeek said...

@Hit 40 - I totally agree.

@Maureen - I think we all wish we can get away with some things!

Jacki said...

When I think of karma, I think of the saying "payback is a bitch." :-)

My favorite ice cream flavor is mint chocolate chip. Yummm...

ReformingGeek said...

@Jacki - and "you reap what you sow". Mint chocolate chip sounds pretty good right now.

Bee said...

Karma and I have had a long frustrating relationship. In fact, it goes far back to when I was a little girl and almost trampled by a pig. Stupid Karma!!

Just kidding Karma! I take that back!

Quirkyloon said...

Oh wait, I already commented! I thought it read familiar.

Darn Google Reader strikes again!

heh heh

ettarose said...

Karma is my best friend I swear. Once I had a boss scream at me and tell me he was going to fire me, I found out later it was a ruse to get a friend hired when I was sent to third shift. Three months later he retired and his wife was waiting with divorce papers. He lost EVERYTHING he worked for. Nanner nanner boo boo! I am not an ice cream fan except for Nutty Buddy. I could eat a quart of it at once.

ReformingGeek said...

@Bee - Be careful. Karma is listening!

@Quirky - You can comment again and again. I won't mind.

@etta - I love it when that happens! Nutty Buddy? Hum....not familiar to me. I must check that out.

ReformingGeek said...

Oh duh! Of course I know Nutty Buddy. Yum!

Sue said...

I got bit in the butt by karma yesterday.
Must not have mean thoughts of co-workers. Must not have mean thoughts of co-workers.

I've been a firm believer in karma since I started watching My Name is Earl.

ReformingGeek said...

@Sue - Dang those bad thoughts!

Elizabeth said...

Cinnamon Ice Cream!?! They have such a thing? Oh that sounds wonderful!!

bunga raya said...

Hi! Your blog is good

ReformingGeek said...

@Elizabeth - Indeed and yes, it's good!

@Bunga - Thank you!
