Something to Fall Back On

Well. We meet again. I know what you're thinking. "I'm surprised you don't chuck it all and start your own think tank." Or maybe not. That's a line from one of my favorite movies.

If I can't get my groove back, perhaps I can start my own information desk. I think I can be an aged, backwoods kind of Siri. Not to step on the toes of Backroads Miz Manners, of course. But something for those more immediate, pressing questions. Like those asked of little old ladies who used to staff the library information desks before the internet put them out of business.

Don't think I'm not an authority on a wide range of subjects. Every day, tens of people come here to my blog, looking for wiener nosed monkeys, snot nosed monkeys, big fat nosed monkeys, doorknob safety, hairstyles for women over fifty, mrs brady with long hair, business lady haircut, 1970's blue and white kids winter shoes, shoes with toe holes, momo the monster, rick rack, and hormel spam. I think there's a niche out there itching for a spokeswoman.

Don't be a dreamcrusher. It could happen.

Hi Val,
You are a wealth of information.

Rick rack. Now there's a term I haven't heard in a spell. My mom used to talk about rick rack, oh and bric-a-brac.

You are a word tease, that's what you are.

I love all the information I glean from you. I think you should quit your day job :)

Donna,
I'm in high demand for trivia contests. My grandma was a rick rack aficionado.

Sioux,
Sorry, the rick rack well has run dry. My grandma used to sew dresses for my sister and me, and had a hoard of rick rack. In most of my school pictures, my rick rack is showing.

Linda,
I suppose I need to stop giving it away for free.

Josh,
You know I will steal "glean" and use it until it's raggedy and threadbare. Alas, I must keep my day job so I have money to drive my large SUV to town and purchase 44 oz. Diet Cokes and gas station chicken.

But look what that gets you super bugs!!!

Josh,
That and $1.39 will get me a 44 oz. Diet Coke at the gas station chicken establishment.
