Things That Annoy Me

You know you can tell you have too much time on your hands when you start thinking of things that bother you. Yeah, I've got nothing but time. And indigestion, but that's another story.

I thought I'd introduce this as an once-in-a-while feature here. I kinda got the idea from Janna@Jannaverse - you know, the funniest lady on the interwebs. Yeah, funny in a guffaw way. How guffaw? I dunno. Minnesota or Minneapolis or one of those M places. Pretty guffaw. Anyway, she's always making lists. Funny lists. She likes music too. But she doesn't make musical lists. If she did, those would be funny Liszts.

So here we go. My first crack at things that annoy me.

1. Peas
(c'mon, you had to have seen that coming. Like you don't know me by now? They've gotta be right up there with turnips and stewed prunes, strong candidates for future lists of things that annoy me.)

2. People who refuse to yield on the sidewalk or grocery aisle.
I mean really folks, where'd you learn to walk? In a distillery? Common courtesy dictates you walk on the right. Just like driving. Get outta my way. Old man walking, here.

3. Projectile vomit.
Enough said.

4. Diarrhea.

5. The fact that I have to check the spelling of diarrhea before writing it.

So, that explains why there were no peas in sight when I came for dinner. Glad it prevented pet pea-ves number 3-5.

*lmao TOO FUNNY!

You will never see peas on my plate. It goes back to an unfortunate childhood incident. Enough said.
nonamedufus said…
Well, thanks, Barb.

I am right there with you on #5. Drives me insane & I type it almost as often as I type cirrhosis.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, diarrhea drives me nuts. Trying to spell it, I mean.

The same people who refuse to yield on sidewalks are the same people who stand left on escalators. Or worse, in the center.

Whenever I type diarrhea, I always just randomly hit the letters that I know are in the word. Then spell check takes over.

Well, and not that I'm feeling guilty or anything, but I'm happy to see that "blog friends who abandon me for weeks on end" wasn't on that list. And I hope you're feeling better now. :-)

Yeah and those people movers at airports. I hate the people that step on them and stand still. They're people movers not people stand stillers. Come one, eh.

Hey, this is just the first list. If you're lucky you'll be included in a future one.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
