sat at the bar
they’re all talking
The other people

I start reading my book
and listening too

I’m in the book I’m reading
so I skip my part

There’s another writer
sitting at the bar
She told me all about her project
I listened well
it’s a good project

I see her when I drop my son off
at school

I wonder if she writes about me too

      • My sense of humor is an acquired taste. LOL πŸ˜ƒ Sorry, about that. Actually, there’s no acquiring it at all. It just needs to be left alone. πŸ˜ƒ If I wrote my own mix, it would be like a skit of ‘Charts and Graphs’ from the David Letterman show. After I wrote the words including the Travel Channel, the line graph would have taken a steep downturn, no matter what I included next. LOL πŸ˜ƒ Anyway, just giving myself a hard time. My night was not as good as yours! You had a bump in the night to go investigate. πŸ˜ƒ No bumps for me to check into. I miss my bumps. πŸ˜ƒ By the way, your post above was fantastic. Looked like you guys were having some fun with the comments so I just jumped in. I actually took notes on how you wrote it. I’ll try one sometime.


      • Blaine! I have so much going on I can’t remember if I told you that I checked upstairs and down and each door lock. I found nada lol. Not a damn thing. And I say, β€œcheers!” To your personality. I enjoy it.

      • Hey Matt!
        I know you HAVE to be busy! I couldn’t keep up. I’m grateful to get an update at any time. Later is always as good as sooner for me. πŸ˜ƒ Now you know how I felt at 2 AM on Christmas Morning. There’s a ruckus heard, and then no readily available explanation as to what accounted for it. That is the kind of gift that keeps on giving. πŸ˜ƒ We get to spend hours thinking over possible scenarios. Welcome to my world. πŸ˜ƒ And, thanks for giving me a break on the personality. πŸ˜ƒ When I was made at the factory, they forgot to install any filters, whatsoever. LOL Great to hear from you! Maybe that noise will return again so you get another chance to chase.

      • Sorry, I have that Buddy Hackett thing going. πŸ˜‰ It’s always going retro with me. πŸ˜ƒ


      • Definitely right up my alley!! Yoy did the right thing! You didn’t run away. You ran to!! That’s how we figure out what those ‘bumps’ really are. Do we get to hear the rest of the story? Did you find the root cause of the bump? πŸ˜ƒ I gotta know. πŸ˜ƒ
