It is my home, my neighborhood, and my history. It is what I am and where I came from. Embarrassing? Yes Boring? Never

You Can't See Me

A recent event where my future daughter in law witnessed an armed robbery had made me reflect on actions. She responded and got out of the situation and called 911 and did everything correctly. In situations like that where you have the instant fear, you are supposed to react with either fight or flight. I am not really able to do that. In intense fear I freeze - like a deer in head lights - thinking somehow that if I do not move or blink, i am somehow invisible. That is my reaction to fear. Invisibility. while other become invincible. Looking deeper, i realize that is how i actually function in life in general. When situations become too intense, i just become invisible, to my friends, to my family. I do not know when this started for me, must have been in childhood, but after all these years i can see that is my habit, a defense of sorts. With this new found knowledge it is time for me to take off my cloak of invisibility and get out again.

Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus

Sweet chocolate covered Jesus

 I just heard this expression today, I do not know if it is some sort of Holy Ghost entity or if it is a racial slur. But I love it!

 I am going to invent a dessert and call it this, possibly for Easter, maybe with nutter butters and marshmallows, and call it sweet chocolate covered Jesus. (how do you get Jesus out of nutter butters and marshmallows? tell him "stop eating my junk food, I can still see you even if you are the Holy Ghost!"-- okay that was bad, i am sorry)

 Every time something bizarre has happened today, I say it to myself and laugh!

 “Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus, this customer is angry!”

 “Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus, I need something to drink!”

 “Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus, I would rather blog than work!!”

 I love it, I may just create a Facebook page for it, I will include recipes === Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus Angel food Cake Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus Marshmallow clusters Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus Communion Wafers

 Perhaps Facebook “Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus ” will ‘friend’ Candy Coated Christ, Devil’s Food Cake, Deviled Eggs, and Holy Toast

. I do not think it is cussing, borderline blasphemy, perhaps, but definitely not cursing in the traditional sense. I may just patent this as my own – even though it is totally stolen

 “Sweet Chocolate Covered Jesus, I am just incredibly amused with myself!” Obviously I am completely loosing my mind.

They have gone too far! Things that can be used as a Pez dispenser-- - Cartoon Characters, like Bugs, Smurfs, Beavis - TV Characters, like Spock, Cap'n Kirk, Batman - Movie Characters, mythological creatures, football helmets Anything but Presidents of the United States!! But there they are - in the aisle at the grocery store, a collection of our forefathers, atop candy dispensers, ready to crack their necks back and spit out a Pez. Yuk! They should be on coins and currency and stamps not Pez. George Washington must be spinning in his tomb, knowing that he is puking out candy from his jugular. This is highly unacceptable!!!
