Tossed Salad Friday

~~ He walks in a store door as I’m leaving. “Aren’t you going to say hello, Kim?” he demands. I say that I’m not named Kim and I keep walking. “Seriously? You have to be Kim. We’ve lived across the street from each other for a year!” I don’t look back; I’m sure he’ll snub the real Kim at the block party this summer.

~~ Warning — you don’t want to fix a snack in my kitchen when my husband’s working on a car:

~~ A woman calls, wanting to hire me. Yes, that’s what she says after I answer the phone with my name: “I want to hire you.” For what, I wonder? “As my lawyer.” I explain that I haven’t practiced law in close to five years; she sounds dismayed. I assure her that I can provide her with the names of some former colleagues or the number for the bar association, but she demurs. She says she’ll go back to the person who referred me and “see who else he’s got that hasn’t gone out of business.” Well, when you put it that way, good luck to you!

~~ Did you know you could sneeze so hard that you can fracture a rib? I had no idea, but apparently it happened to a relative of someone the person who said “bless you” to me used to know.

~~ She asks, “Do you come to yoga every day?” I answered that I try to be there five days a week. She responds, “Oh, well, I work, and my husband likes to see me when I’m not working.” [Emphasis all hers.]

~~ Overheard: “I want to stay home but my husband says, ‘No wife of mine is going to sit home and not work.’”

~~ A MAGA asshat calls for sympathy and consideration for Don tRump, Jr. in light of his pending divorce. I retweet Jr.’s mocking of a Kardashian for getting divorced, so said MAGA asshat decides to insult me. He wrote, “You’re an even uglier version of Kathy Griffin. I didn’t think that was possible, but you are.” How tRumpian:  if you don’t have the facts on your side, just throw out nasty insults. [I forgot to take a screenshot of the insult before I giggled and blocked him.]

~~ This article asks if tRump is a cult leader. If you voted for him, you’re gonna say no. But just like everything else, you’re probably wrong:

~~ I cried and cheered for the students who exited, I mourned the loss of a great mind who may or may not have proved or disproved that history exists, and I felt a bit sorry for the former giant of industry (turned abysmal Secretary of State) who realizes that the first line of his obituary will say, “Russia’s hand-picked choice to be the U.S. top diplomat in 2017 was fired from his post in 2018 via a tweet.”

Dasvidaniya. Have a good weekend!
