There’s a lot of bullshit flowing on the web this week. I’m sick of hearing about COVID-19. The entire situation is extremely worrisome, but wouldn’t be so bad if the “stable genius” had addressed the problem with a) intelligence, b) facts, and c) clarity. He has no idea what the hell he is doing. But this isn’t a political post. I’ll save that for another time.
I finally got my meds straightened out and met my new FNP. She was very personable and spoke with knowledge without talking down to me. I asked her about the clinic’s process if someone thinks they might have the virus. Her answers were reassuring and I left feeling that it would be handled competently. I went to Walmart to pick up my meds and a few other things afterward.
Walmart was a madhouse. Families pushing 2 and 3 carts packed full of supplies were everywhere. I actually got a scooter and I realized on the way home why it was so easy to get one today, of all days. Well, a scooter basket doesn’t hold enough for the zombie apocalypse you know!!!! It’s really a good thing I didn’t need toilet paper because there was not one package left on the shelves! Paper towels and facial tissues were pretty slim pickins, too! They were low or completely out of so many things! Ugh.
Anyway, folks… Here’s this week’s dose of levity. Enjoy!
My pick for 3rd place this week:
My pick for 2nd place:
And my pick for #1:
Now, if some of those don’t make you laugh then there’s something wrong with you! Seriously, though. I had a hard time choosing my faves! The Quarantini and That 70’s Mom were pretty close in the running but I had to pick the ones that made me laugh the most! Which are your picks?
Tomorrow Dad and I are off to do some last-minute errands and to have some lunch. It will be our last day out for a while, I think. We shall lay low for a couple of weeks and let the zombies run amuck!
Have a great weekend, folks! Thanks for following my blog and remember, wash your hands!
When I was just a teenager but out of high school, I was working at an elementary school as an Instructional Aide. I worked in a Resource Classroom where kids would come in from their regular classrooms for specialized help in certain subjects. If they were behind their grade level in a subject, they would come to us to help them get caught up with their classmates. It was a very rewarding job and I had planned to go to college and eventually choose a career in either Speech Therapy or Special Education. That didn’t exactly go as planned…but I digress.
I didn’t have a car of my own at that point in my life so I had to either walk, get a ride, or borrow my mom’s car. She was never fond of the idea of being without wheels and I guess I don’t blame her. I don’t like being without wheels either! Anyway, normally she would pick me up in lieu of letting me take the car.
One day she actually let me borrow her car, an ugly green station wagon. I sure wish they still made them! It wasn’t a cool car by a long shot, but I’d love to have one now! I wasn’t used to her letting me take the car, so I forgot I had it! I waited and waited…and waited and waited…for her to come get me and she never showed up! I figured she forgot or something came up.
After a good 45 minutes, I called her on the phone. When she picked up I asked, “Where are you? Are you still coming to get me or should I just walk?” She said, “You have the car, you dingbat!” I was instantly embarrassed!! Some of my co-workers (teachers, office management, and other aides) were in the office at the time and they all knew I was waiting for my ride. I could feel the heat on my face as it turned beet-red. When I got off the phone, I laughed at myself.. even though I was dreadfully embarrassed! One of my co-workers asked me what was going on. I explained what happened and felt so ridiculously stupid! That ugly green station wagon was out in the parking lot the entire time! Silly me.
Thankfully, I don’t have too many really embarrassing moments anymore. What are some of your most embarrassing moments? Do share…
I’m starting something new called Wacky Wednesday and I can’t promise it will be a) funny or b) consistent but I’m going to give it a shot! I was playing with Granddaughter’s toys last week and took some silly pictures. I posted them on last week’s Friday’s Funnies. THAT was what gave me the idea! This week, more silly fun with toys!
The Fight of the Century!
Dedicated to my sister, Carol because she loves SpongeBob and I love her!
