MATTERS OF SMALL IMPORT

Today’s post will be a conglomeration of this and that, with no theme nor particular order involved…much like my writing. Please bear with me…this could get ugly.

*Item- Headline from last week’s Globe newspaper, using the term very loosely…”Stevie Wonder can see again.”

RE the above: there are times when the best, and as far as I’m concerned, the only thing to do is keep your mouth shut…this is one of them. I am very happy for Mr. Wonder.

*Item- I recall, and this was many years ago now, following a car down the street one day, with a woman driving, breezing along, minding her own business, all the while trailing an 8 foot length of gas pump hose, the nozzle of which was still inserted into her gas tank opening. I pulled up next to her at a stop light and started to say something about having a hose hanging out of her back end, but it sounded so bad that I stuttered out a “you might want to pull over and check your rear” and that wasn’t real good either, if you think about it.

I gave up and drove off…the hose may still be sticking out the butt-end of her car for all I know.

*Item- Headline from the Internet…”Two charged with attempting bank heist dressed as nuns”. Were these guys hoping for some kind of Divine Intervention?

*Item- Apropos of nothing, yet everything…this is a line from the Eagles’ “New Kid In Town”: “Hopeless romance, here we go again.” Yep.

*Item- Notwithstanding that this is not a humorous subject, nevertheless, as I have said on many occasions, laughing is what we do to stave off the times of bleak despair and unhappiness. With that in mind, my only question about the pic (right) is this…do you suppose this is where Rocket Man, Slim Hung Long or whatever the hell his name is, got his start?

*Item- Song title by B.B King…”Nobody Loves Me But My Mother, And She Could Be Jiving Too”. Yes.

*Item- Headline from the Internet…”Why do the Boy Scouts want to include girls?” and I thought to myself, boy, if I have to explain that to someone, this world is in deep, deep shit.

And finally, this item, which will become a weekly feature here on the WATRUK blog, 10/23/17…Asshole of the Week.

Our first nomination for AotW is that paragon of virtue, that pillar among lesser men, Harvey (I Am A Real Douche) Weinstein…congratulations, asshole, you’re the first to be so honored here on the WATRUK blog.

Soooo, Harvey…

Okay, I’m going to have to wrap this up here…I have a number of pressing matters to attend to that are clamoring at me for my attention. (If you asked someone from Publix’ Corporate Office to describe having something to do, this is probably what you would get.)

Love and miscellaneous,

Cap’n John
