Lame duck day…

Did you know?
That today is Lame Duck Day? This unofficial holiday honors those who are on their way out of their elected office. The term originated in a field far from politics, however. The first usage has been traced to the London Stock Exchange in the 18th century, referring to “someone who couldn’t pay his or her debts and then waddled off like a duck.” Regardless of how you use it, honor any lame ducks you may know! 😉


I’m such a featherbrain!

I got a taxi home from college. The driver who brought me home also brought me to college. I know him well.

We were chatting on the way home. His phone rang and he started talking to someone. We got to my house and I hopped out of the car.

He walked me into my front door. And what did I do? I forgot to pay him!

I rang the base but the base operator said he had gone on another job. And he couldn’t come back. So he got no money! I will give it to him when I next see him. But that might be a week or two from today.

God what an idiot! I was so busy chatting! It simply went out of my head, but you’d think you’d remember ya gotta pay the driver wouldn’t you?

Today’s prompt over at what if we all cared is:

catapulting crickets


the catapulting crickets

sat in a clearing

just staring

if I slowly creep

upon them

will they make that icky chirpy sound

and scare me sensseless?

Did you ever know

I hate bugs?

Oh yes

If you want to hear an ear piercing scream
