After the stress of the election, watch this satire.
After the stress of the election, watch this satire.
I’ll be happy when this election is over. It’s not exactly making my life pleasant.
I live in Ohio, and the candidates just won’t stop calling me. First it was Sherrod Brown, and then it was Josh Mandel. Who knew I was going to be so popular?
Not only are people calling me on the phone, they are knocking on my door. They are giving me pamphlets, and telling me how excited they are about their candidates. I have to admire their tenacity, but I’m not answering the door until election day is over.
On TV, the talking heads are reduced to talking about the candidates with Body Language experts. Why was Obama’s head tilted to the left? Why did Romney raise his chin? It’s reminds me of the George Orwell book, 1984. Thought police were going around checking out the population.
Why didn’t “the super pacs” take all the money they spent on all those annoying advertisements and start reducing the deficit with it.
Do, go out and vote. By now, you ought to know there is a difference between the candidates. Don’t let other people affect your life!
What do you think?
I don’t know about you, but I have tried to contact my dead relatives. I’ve even said aloud, “visit me in a dream, rattle my lamps, please.” But nothing happens. I figure, maybe they’re not happy with me, or have nothing left to say, or maybe they’ve really vanished.
I’m wondering if I should go see the Long Island Medium. She’s coming to my home town in a couple of weeks. She stars on a show on TLC. You know the great shows they have, Honey Boo Boo, the old Kate plus 8 plus what’s his name before they got divorced. I’m surprised Octomom doesn’t have a featured show.
I love this show. First of all, the long Island medium, Theresa Caputo, amuses me up on several levels . I like her teased dyed blonde hair. Her clothes are all right, but sometimes she looks slightly trashy. But, what I like most is her snappy patter and common sense. She is also an adoring wife and mother although she seems slightly overbearing at times.
Sometimes her family—husband, son, and daughter— roll their eyes when she starts another reading. Her husband and son couldn’t even go sky diving without her reuniting the owner of the sky diving company with his deceased parents.
People’s eyes fill up with tears when she gives messages from their deceased loved ones. Sometimes they feel guilty about how their loved ones passed. They didn’t get to say goodbye or they were inconsiderate. Theresa gives them closure. Wouldn’t we all like to say one last thing to our friends, and family?
Theresa knows secrets nobody else would possibly know. How would anyone know somebody was carrying a picture in their wallet of their old dead boyfriend? How could they know the words they spoke to their loved ones when nobody was around. Tina seems to know it all. Plus, she’s so matter-of-fact about it. She has no doubt that spirits are talking to her.
The show airs on TLC on Sunday night. Watch it. Even if it isn’t true, it’s entertaining. And who knows? Maybe one day we’ll all be spirits floating around together. It’s a nice thought. Better than vanishing into thin air.
Time sure have changed since the year I was 20 3/4 and tried to get into a nightclub in Florida. The guy letting people in the club, challenged my age. He thought I was way under 21. He might have been referring to my lack of cleavage. I was wearing what I thought was a sexy dress.
Not to mention the time, I got in at a ski slope place in Canada for under age 16. (I was 25). By that time, I was happy to be mistaken for a kid.
Now I am in my 60‘s. I remember thinking how ancient I thought my mother was at that age. Truth be told, she looked a lot better than I do now. (I have the photos to prove it.) She was always a consistent size 12. And she smiled a lot. At least in her photos.
Okay, I don’t bother wearing makeup on my daily outings. I figure if my husband doesn’t wear makeup, why should I? And I’m thinking, why hide underneath it? I did go out of the house today in a hurry. So, maybe my hair wasn’t at its best. I didn’t even bother with a little lipstick.
I went to McDonald’s, and the lady behind the counter said, “How about a senior drink?” I didn’t even ask. I didn’t even know they offered such things. (At McDonald’s).
After feeling like crap after eating junk food, I decided to go to a movie. I love to sit in dark movie theaters where (hopefully) nobody knows me. To me, this is the ultimate escape. It always helps if the movie is entertaining.
So, what do you think the guy behind the counter asked me before I paid for my movie ticket? That’s right. He asked, “Ma’am do you want a senior ticket?”
Two offers of a discount because of my true appearance within two hours.
By the way, the movie I saw was one of those modern movies that has an ambiguous ending. Maybe I’m too old to get it. I did still realize the star of the movie had amazing beautiful blue eyes. I saw him in another movie. I’m sorry to say, I don’t know his name. (Signs of age)
So it was a completely frustrating day, and did not fulfill my need to briefly escape. I guess there’s no getting away from your authentic self. I do think that’s what the movie was about. But, I’m not sure.
A word to the wise: If you’re in a position of offering a senior a discount, wait until they ask for it.
They might not save any money, but at least they’ll think they still look under 55. A good ego booster.
In this society, even the older people, don’t like old age. I figured by this time, we’d have figured out a way to make it desirable. After all, there are a lot of us. Most of the time I don’t think about it. That is, until someone points it out to me.
Have you ever been insulted because of your age? Mistaken for too young or too old? Tell me about it.
I guess this goes along with him putting his dog on the top of his car ( while he was driving), his remark about not worrying about the poor, and going after the guy in high school who was gay. Not to mention his views on birth control and abortion. His choice of running-mate doesn’t sit well with me either.
I consider myself a good judge of character. I don’t like his character. He’s reminds me of someone who says hurtful things, and then excuses it by saying, “I was only kidding.”
I felt the same way about Nixon. I was right about him.
I am afraid the fickle public are going to elect this guy.
He scares me.
