Tossed Salad Friday

~~ Happy spring! That has a nice ring, don’t you think?
Hello spring

~~ Why would someone say she has “around eight pairs of black shoes”? Would it consume too much of her time to count them and get an exact number? Or does the number fluctuate from day to day as her shoes walk in and out of her life?

~~ Bibi Netanyahu took a play right from the GOP game book, stooping so low that he didn’t have to look into the eyes of those he maligned on his way to reelection. I barely keep up with USA skullduggery, so I won’t proclaim any insight into the Israeli election, but I sure know race baiting when I hear it.

~~ I have had the same surname for over 35 years, yet some people who’ve known me that long refuse to address me by it. I am merely considered as part of “[Husband’s] Family.” Name tagIt may seem minor, but have someone repeatedly truncate your name or subsume you into another’s identity and see how you like it.

~~ There were a couple of people talking about how peaceful and accepting Buddhism was, and I apparently rolled my eyes quite loudly. “Isn’t it?” asked one. “Well,” I said, “I would never make generalizations about any group. But I read that Buddhists are slaying Muslims in Myanmar and Sri Lanka.” “Riiiight,” says the other one. “I heard the Dalai Lama was pissed off.” We all agreed that if you piss off the Dalai Lama, you have to be very far off the accepted path of enlightened acceptance and awareness.

~~   cricket Did you know cricket matches have drink breaks? Me, neither.

~~ The yoga teacher told the class an inspirational story that ended with, “and the monkey died.” The moral was supposed to be about letting go, but all I could think about for the rest of the day was the poor, hungry monkey who expired.

On that terrible note, have a wonderful weekend!
LET’S GO RANGERS!
GO, NY KNICKS, GO!
LET’S GO METS!

I think someone, if she's like me, would say she has "around 8 pairs of black shoes" because she doesn't want to admit that she actually has exactly 15 pairs of black shoes. Not that I have that many pairs of black shoes. But I have around 8 red shirts. I think people must think I'm wearing the same shirt all the time.

Light bulb moment!
That's such a logical explanation, lady in red.

I never would have thought of that.
