100-Word Stroll for 3/20/17: SPRING ALWAYS MAKES ME SMILE

“Spring has sprung, the grass is riz; I wonder where all them flars is.” I learned that little goofy poem from my brother years ago.  It’s still as silly as always.  And I still let no Spring sneak past without reciting it.

100-Word Stroll, 10/5/16: IS THAT ME IN MY MIRROR?

I was carrying on a snarky conversation, cracking wise: “Wow, bub – that face could hold a 3-day rain.”  The usual early-AM smart remarks.  It was about there when I noticed the guy wasn’t firing back, but aping my gestures.  I squinted.  Mirror.

100-Word Stroll for 9/7/16: UH-UH. NO WAY. NOT INTERESTED.

Ever notice some of your most incisive thoughts and most brilliant debates occur in the shower when you can’t record them for mankind? I have a big 4′ by 3′ mirror in my bathroom.  We are not friends in the morning. “PING”.  Idea.  I got some black dry-erase markers and began capturing all that early-morning … Continue reading »

How NOT To Celebrate One’s Anniversary

So I found this card that I, as a man, knew – KNEW – would dazzle her. It had an exotic exterior that could only be described as ‘Jungle Chique’.  Jungle.  Coffee.  Right? In the jungle clearing sat two leopards:  one, a slim, svelte female – smaller, naturally – and a boldly-put-together, powerfully-muscled leopard male-type dude … Continue reading »

FROM WHENCE COMES SMURL?

“What’d you just call me?” I–I’ve no idea what you’re talking about. “It sure sounded like you just called me a—a—hurl?  Churl?  What’d you say?” O – oh.  You must have overheard me say smurl as I was jotting notes to myself.  I couldn’t imagine how you might’ve associated yourself with the term.  You can’t … Continue reading »
