The Misadventures of Shady Lady and the Wayward Nut (Or How the Cubs in the World Series Has Jumpstarted the Apocalypse)

I suppose I should explain that title. Collin and I have some pretty weird after dinner conversations sometimes. Last night, I dropped an almond I still haven't located. I told Collin I had to find a  wayward nut. He said it sounded like Trump's Secret Service codename. It's actually Mogul, but this one is a much better fit, don't you think?

From there, we reached the conclusion that Shady Lady fit Hillary better than Evergreen. Or maybe IT Gal (as in IT, internet technology)?



It's been a wild week, hasn't it? Who would have expected the 2016 World Series to be the Chicago Cubs vs. the Cleveland Indians? Talk about an underdog story! But then, it's been that kind of year. Nobody--especially GOP leaders--expected Donald Trump to be their nominee for President of the United States. Most of us thought it was just a really bad joke that day he descended via the escalator at Trump Tower, surrounded what was rumored to be a paid-for crowd of enthusiastic supporters (I still suspect that entrance was a bit of raunchy symbolism to make him look as if he were descending from the heavens to save us from ourselves). After all, he'd said just the week before that he was going to make an announcement that would make everybody happy--his words, not mine! I took that to mean he was going to announce he wouldn't be running for President! It certainly would have made my day.

 
I didn't think Hillary Clinton would run, either. I thought she and Bill would be content with their foundation and their two grandchildren. I'm younger than either of them, and I'd rather be at home watching movies and eating pizza with Collin than spending my days like an ant stuck under the giant media magnifying glass in sunlight hot enough to fry me.



But no. Instead, we have the two most unpopular candidates in history as our choices for our next President. We have the two least likely teams to reach the top competing for the World Series championship. What's next? Venus gets knocked out of orbit and collides with Earth? 


PS To my blogger friends: I'm way behind on blog reading/commenting. I spent most of Saturday changing all of my passwords in the wake of that massive global hacking. Some were easier to change than others. Some still haven't been changed. WordPress was such a PITA, I'm seriously considering dropping my author blog there. Don't need it anyway. I have author pages at Creativia and Amazon.

I promise to get caught up with all of you within the next few days....

  1. Dogs and cats, living together... mass hysteria!

    The Cubbies cannot be permitted to win the Series. Steve Bartman, we need you!

    1. Bad news. The Cubs have forgiven Bartman.

      And Grumpy Cat says cats will never live with dogs. Ever.

  2. I can't believe Hillary has the balls to run. She really believes we're all stupid.

    1. Yep, she has the balls. They're Bill's. She wears them on a chain around her neck.

  4. Unlikely things happen all the time but this year has surprised me more than once. Someone once told me not to expect anything and I'd be happier that way. Hmm my. Love your post and the media magnifying glass analogy. You could be a contender in 2020. Lol

    1. It's divided our house. We love our Blues and Cardinals, but now Collin is rooting for the Indians, while I hope the Cubbies win!

  8. I'm cheering, along with my husband, who brings the radio to bed with him. We have a sort of shrine on the dining room, where we put up a card with a blue W for "win", there's two Coke bottles I painted and an teddy bear w. cubs hat and shirt on. So, yeah. We're a bit nutty.

  9. I don't know Norma, perhaps because I'm not as close to the situation but as a non American looking in I don't see Hillary Clinton as being as evil as you guys perceive her. I definitely think that she has way more pluses than negatives, let's face it there is not one person on this earth that can honestly say they've never lied or made a wrong decision, it's human! I'm so sick of hearing about those deleted emails, personally I would be voting for Hillary all the way.
