GETTING OLD

We all age. Some gracefully, some without any dignity. It just happens that the daily aches and pains increase as your age does. Unless you’re Dorian Grey, of course. Seems that ODD is all here today. Count the lucky Super Moon.

    The first year I worked as a dishwasher we had a long running prank war between the cooks and the maintenance man. One of the highlights involved rigging up a rubber spider so that when you opened the microwave oven it would fly out at you. Our head chef at the was a tiny, always angry Mediterranean woman who was fueled by hatred and Grand Marnier. One day my coworkers had told her someone had left a big mess in the microwave, she flies into the kitchen screaming her head off about how she had just had me clean it, rips the door open and is so startled by the spider that her sneakers actually left skid marks as she burned rubber out of the restaurant. She mellowed out for a few days and then quit a week or two later if I remember right. That was a rather crazy summer even by my standards. Thankfully I was largely left alone tho that’s was more due two both sides using me as the judge, the consultant/ideaman, and occasionally, the accomplice too.

      I used to work at a factory where practical jokes were the norm. I had a pair of Red Wing steel toed boots which cost me about $150. One day I came to work to find that someone had spray painted them neon pink. I wore neon pink boots for about three years.

      Another time, a fellow supervisor was deathly afraid of snakes. A coworker (not me) put a medium sized garter snake in the drawer of his desk. While I was not an accomplice, I must say that hearing a grown man scream like a little girl is funny. I saved the snake and released it outside.

    ……Yes we all age. When you get up in the morning and you’re making strange noises (eg: pain) like you never made before then let it be known…. ‘age has arrived’.

    – That’s cool. Some church should do that with a nativity scene.
    – When the world is on you, friends may be around…..but when it starts to roll their way and will cost them something….then you don’t see them for dust.
    – Yeah, a lot of firepower and financial power. Making those ships made some people a lot of money.
    – All those cars in the flood….well now they are flooding the market and people should do a complete trace on where a future purchase comes from, even up in Canuckland.
    – 1986-2016 …..well people maybe should be happy to have a job. We don’t manufacture like we use to, increasingly more jobs are tech jobs and what we use to manufacture is being done now in other countries (in order to make the rich…richer). I can’t remember where I read this recently but someone said….”people rush out of their homes in the mornings to get to someplace they hate going to”.
    – We don’t have a dishwasher. I’d never have one. I do all the dishes and I find it very ‘zen’. I may be wrong but most dishwashers also use up a lot of water compared to a sink filled with wash water and another half filled for rinsing. Dishwashers are also just another gizmo that will break down and then you have to call in repair which may cost you an arm a leg and your first born male child. I’ll stick with two hands and some good jazz music in the background.
    – I really like the photo of the kid taking the sip of beer. My dad use to do that. Brings back some nice warm memories.
    – Spreading Democracy. Don’t get me going on that!!!! ‘We the people’ get so sucked into the bullshit told to us by our governments. Democracy?…..there’s no true democracy anywhere. What we are fed is an illusion of democracy in order to pacify us. It’s like throwing a dog a rubber bone…..it looks good enough….but it’s not real.
    – I don’t watch baseball so I’ll guess that someone lost their contact lens.

    Well I’m off to so some dishes….
    Have a good day.

    Looks like I’ve finally found a Nativity set-up I’d actually use!

    I personally worship the god Hurg – every time I have to get out of a chair, or on/off my knees, I summon him: “Huuurrrrg!” 😀

    I read a story to my students today called You Only Get Old Once by Dr. Seuss. It about all the things you through when you are old, and all of the medical advice you get along the way. It was a cute story although my students were half sleep due to having too much fun playing at P.E…wait..I mean learning ^_- lol

    I like the baby tires, that perfect!

    That lady needs a lesson in loading a dishwasher. If I that, I can hear my mom say “Didn’t I teach you anything? I have failed as a mom now let me do this”. XD

    Have a good one,

      The nativity scene is priceless! The mind has to first reject the perception that it is a full size accident scene. Then there is the recognition of the DeLorean – then what it means, followed by explosive laughter.

      Thanks!
