Will I Ever Learn Wednesday 5-19-10

This is the day of the week that I get to think of ditzy me and the ditzy world I live in.

Sitting in my car at a stop light, listening to my tunes, I noticed a very young teen preparing to cross the street in front of me.  Sagging pants, large untied tennies, ball hat turned sideways, lighting a oh so cool cigarette, he was taking his good ol’ time.  Holding the cigarette just so, he began the swagger…  But he had waited a bit too long.  The light was turning green and he was barely in the cross walk.  So he began to walk faster.  And that's when it happened.  His britches fell to his knees, almost tripping him.  He quickly stuck the cancer stick in his mouth in a not so cool way, and ran for it.  I laughed so hard, I was crying.

--------------------------------------------------

I’ve been looking forward to fresh cherries from my cherry tree.  We did pick enough for one pie (almost) and then left the rest to ripen for the next day.  Here is what greeted me.

The ladders are still there.  So is my picking bucket.  But where oh where did my cherries go?

That’ll teach me to wait a day!

Have a great rest of the week.

Oh I have so wanted that to happen to a lot of these cool boys! Glad you got to see it, or so I guess.
Play some of the tunes loud, maybe it will scare those birds off.

That would have been quite a sight to see. I would have cracked up laughing too. LOL

And I see who snitched your cherries. Great shot of the cardinal, tho.

okay, I think I lost my comment; if it came through, just delete this one, LOL. I'm on son's laptop and I'm not used to it and I think I didn't give it time for the comment to "take". I guess this is my ditzy moment for the day :)

too funny about the pants! one time there was a stalled vehicle and this guy got out to push it through the intersection. He too had saggy pants so as he is pushing it, he's trying to hold his pants up, too funny! I think a belt would definitely have helped, don't you?

oh no with the cherries! but it is a pretty bird :)

betty

See back in my day our jeans weren't so baggy they fell down around our knees. They were so tight that they split every time we so much as sneezed, but they never fell down!
