    Punctuation and emphasis can really change the

    meaning of a sentence. There is a big difference between asking: "What is that in the road ahead?" and "What is that in the road, a head?"

    Except for when I have to drink tons of water

    all day before having a procedure done. Ugh....I hate water. Why couldn't they say "drink a ton of cokes today"?? Maybe I should eat some pretzels...."these pretzels are making me THIRSTY!" Hehe

    An Innocent Day Out...Or So I Thought..

    It seemed like a good idea when I mentioned it. I like to set myself a challenge each year, push myself a bit and go out of my comfort zone. This particular year I decided I wanted to visit a nudist camp. Discussing it with my hubby I found him to be up for it (in more ways than...

    It is HOT... HOT... HOT... here! Hottest it's been all summer!     Some might describe it as sultry… but in my mind sultry is not a description of the weather. Here’s my idea of sultry…     Some might say these are the true dog days of summer… Named in part for the...

    After so long, I now can muster the courage to

    laugh at young love. To know someone since you were kids, have them make you their world for 8 yrs, pledge to marry them for 6yrs, and to have them rob it all in one text message. Life is a Son of a ***** !

    I often find humour in tragedy,

    but yes, I can usually see the funny side when I'm not being way too serious. I'm reminded of a story I once heard where a guy who's deeply depressed and has thoughts of suicide goes to see a Psychiatrist about getting help. The Psychiatrist offers him some pills, as expected...

    I always have to pause

    and think when someone ask me "How are you?" Are they asking if I am well or if I am good?

    In the Darkest of Hours...

    Humour is, by definition, a funny thing. It can be used with as much cruelty as a rack and pair of thumbscrews, or to lighten the deepest of pain. Having seen many people in times of despair, sudden loss or facing the inevitability and then realisation of loss, and worked...

    My humor is sometimes dark.

    But I Don't mean any harm by it and NEVER want to hurt anybody with it! I was working at a retail store when a co-worker came back and said, "I just helped a lady shop. I love helping people shop. I took my mother shopping until she died." In my moment of humor I replied...

    I was once a pallbearer at a military funeral.

    The deceased, my Father in Law, was someone I really just didn't care for. In fact, I despised him. NOBODY much cared for him at all because he was such an ornery jerk! But out of respect for the service he gave to our country, I was determined to be respectful nonetheless. At...

    “I want to grow a flower

    for every time someone tells me “**** you.” Then I’ll go back to that person and pin the flower on their lapel in a gesture of friendship. And while they are looking down on it in astonishment, I’ll bunch up my knuckles and punch them in the face.” ― Jarod Kintz
