Olio, Hodgepodge and the Great Texas Dynamite Chase

Doritos-The Super Bowl Commercial 2013-Covered In Doritos. - YouTube

My girlfriend came to me and said, “I don’t think you respect me as a person. I don’t think you see me as an equal in our relationship”

Who let you out of your cage?”, I demanded.

When I was in court on murder charges (SECOND degree murder… don’t get excited), I decided to hedge my bets by claiming I was temporarily insane while standing my ground and defending myself from a man who I caught in bed with my wife. The jury found me “Not Unguilty” and the judge sentenced me to twenty years of non-supervised parole…

She said, “I’d love to stay with you but your friend is too ugly to comfortably live with”. I replied, “Then, I’ll just take my dog and leave”. She said, “I was talking to the dog”

I’ve never seen the movie Gaslight”, I protested.

Yes”, she told me, “You have”

I have?”

Yes, you saw it with me”

Well, I guess I saw it, then”

Your brother was mocking me and I lost it and dumped a bag of Doritos on his head”

So, THAT’S why he’s been walking around like he has a chip on his shoulder!”

A man was sitting on his steps lamenting about his bad luck. Then, out of the corner of his eye, he saw something flitter by. “Who are you?”, he asked.

I am the Great Magic Moth”, answered the insect.

So, you’ve come here to make me wealthy beyond my wildest dreams?”

Heavens, no!”

So, you’ve come here to deliver to me the love of my life?”

Not exactly”

So, why are you here?”

Your porch-light is on”…

Last week, a spirit came to me and showed me what the world would’ve been like if I’d never been born. It was pretty much the same universe as this one except my mother is seven hundred and thirty months pregnant…

I finally bought a squash racket. I found, to my delight, that it works just as well on zucchini…

Dogs, when left to their own devices, will hunt any animal that is smaller than a bear, at pretty much any time… hungry or not. I’m not sure what it says about us that the animal we love the most is a happy-go-lucky, good-natured serial killer.

      1. For a rather quiet pandemic period, there’s been lots going on. In addition to a long existential struggle about ‘why I write’ (I just posted something on that 🤓), helping my sister care for my Mom has been time-consuming but also a very, very beautiful experience. My stepfather passed in March (he was already failing; Covid was the final straw) and I travel to see my kids as often as I possibly can. I’m awfully happy to be back. I DO have a few questions about the logistics of my blog (i.e. things that I have either forgotten how to do or else things have changed a bit). Can I e-mail you at some point?
