Little Miss Can't Be Wrong

Hmmm. Is someone having a birthday in less than a month?
Here's another post about feeling old...
Do you think the gas station attendant who is at least 20 years younger than I am feels as ridiculous calling me "miss" as I feel being called "miss?"

My Favorite Things

N just said that his favorite Christmas present was the Silly Putty he got in his stocking.
If I'd known in advance that that would be the case - I could have saved a lot of money.

a limerick for the boss on his birthday

A man who was born to run
wrote songs that were number one.
He went dancing in the dark,
down in Ashbury Park.
His glory days as yet, are not done.


For the record, I did write this on Bruce Springsteen's birthday (which was Friday), I just didn't get around to posting it until today.

Hangman Jury

The elementary school bus was late.
I had to bring my husband the sandwich he left at home.
I forgot my computer and had to drive home to get it.
I scalded my mouth on tea from my damn-that-keeps-tea-really-hot travel mug.
There was traffic everywhere because of detours and road construction (see sentence #1).
I ended up not having to go, but maybe I would have been better off at jury duty.
