I HAD A GOOD DAY

I'm still coughing. I'm coughing less but I'm coughing up the good stuff...the stuff that's been laying around in my lungs from when I used to smoke...I coughed up Camel butt I ingested back in 69, when I was smoking 4 packs of them fuckers a day. But it was a good day. It's fall in West, Texas. It got down to 47 degrees and was only in the low 70's today..Will be the same for a week or so...We even had some rain. Fall in Texas...I'm telling you it's a oxymoron...Texas doesn't have a Fall. Well, we do but it usually only last 45 minutes and then it's summer again..Just like our Spring...45 minutes and then it's summer again..Summer usually is about 11 months long, the one month is spread out over the year of a few days of less than 110 degrees and a few days of over 30 degrees.
But today...it's a good day. Work was fun, I found someone besides me that refers to Malted Milk Balls as Moth Balls. First time ever...we strolled down memory lane. We had a good laugh at Yankees that actually pronounce the R in mirror and the W in window. Us Texans know that they end in A's.
Everyone was at work today at 1pm when I left, Michell, BamBam, Inky, Tom and me...that was fun....The girls oohed, and ahhed over my lime green Baby Phats, and Tom and Inky made fun of them. I said I was hauling ass, then I left and came back in and said 'sorry, my ass is so big it takes me two trips' and left again. Then I went to the Used Shit Store and bought some books for the Library and bought me some more books, cause you know I have to buy books..I got Cheap Skate in the Kitchen, Manhattan Nocturne, by Colin Harrison, Out of the Blue by Orel Hershiser, and Illustrated Hieroglyphics Handbook, all for the price of $3.50. I also got an Indian print rug 6x10 for $10. It's an almost match to the one in the living room except this one is blue and red instead of green and red.
Then I went to the library where Nancy (the librarian)took me aside and said in a low voice(we were at the Library)"Those are the coolest fucking tennis shoes ever."....Did I tell you I love our new librarian. While at work Merle came in from Strickley Country and I told him about my Green Chili Pork Stew and he wanted some, so I took him a bowl. I drove in the parking lot and he was out front talking on his cell phone, he walked up to the car I handed him the bowl, we blew kisses at each other and I left. Then I went to the West, Texas Post Office, where my fucking day was made..Remember back when I first started to work(last Feb.) and I said I would work, but when football season started I couldn't work on Sunday's because I had to be home watching the Cowboys play..that it was a deal breaker.?..Remember?....So...I walk in the Post Office and the two smart asses behind the counter start laughing ...They said:"So, are you going to start working on Sunday's now since the Cowboys are playing so lousy, it's not worth it to stay home and watch them.?"and they laughed and laughed...I confess, it cracked me up...I put my head on the counter and just laughed my ass off...all three of us standing there whooping it up ...
Yup...Life is good...
fuckme till somebody makes a touchdown.

Glad you're feeling better and that you had a good laugh about your team.

Wendy said...

My mom and I call them chocolate covered moth balls because her father would call them that so my mom and her 2 sisters wouldn't eat them on him.

But that is what you get when your mom was born in the 40s and your father in the 30s.

I want to see a picture of the shoes. I'm totally curious. Gee, I hope you haven't already posted one and I missed it. I'd feel like a real ass then. Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better!

Rainwolf said...

Glad you're feeling better and had a good day. It's fall in Alabama too, I'm freezing my ass off.

sageweb said...

I have to see you baby phats! Laughter helps you get better, so you should be like brand new soon

Nit Wit said...

It got down to the high twenties the other night. I hate scraping my windshield.
Glad your feeling better now if your team could just get better the town wouldn't have anything to laugh about.
Pretty soon you'l have to rent another apartment just for your books. You could get a grant if you put a sign outside saying it was a branch of the West Library.

I love malt balls, especially the ones they sell around easter. You still have green chile stew? I'll take a bowl! Glad you had a good day.

Intense Guy said...

I'm feeling better too - just seeing the "Days Left In Office" ticking down its final days and hours...

Allan said...

Wow... you can laff at the 'Boys? You must be feelin' better! Keep on!

Ted said...

*ROFPMPLMMFAO!*
Sounds like you were in high form, especially that business at the post office. I'd have been tempted to tell them to go "somewhere where there's no born-again Christians".

tsduff said...

Coughed up a camel butt... ha ha ha! I know that coughing is supposed to be a deep cleaning exercise of the body ha ha ha you are so funny!

My Sweetie has taken to the saying "Chin up, tits out" because I read him one of your posts. You are one kick in the pants Jackie Sue.

Josh said...

A good day seems to be the greatest blessing. I've been having some good days lately too.

yellowdog granny said...
