Things that make me say Hmm, part 3.

We saw a sign for a pancake breakfast sponsored by the local Lions club. Smokey remarked that it would be more appropriate for them to serve steak. Raw. I one-upped him by pointing out that zebra steaks would be even more suitable for the Lions.

Other witticisms: after seeing yet another Geico commercial, Smokey wondered aloud how they pay the gecko. I said, “Scale,” and he erupted in laughter. Sadly, I did not realize my reply was a pun.

A friend gave her 7-yo grandson a cat for Christmas. G’son named it Cuddle Cakes. (I don’t say Hmm at this one; I say Right on! and Yay, kittehs! and LOL at the name. Best name EVAH for a kitteh.)

I just unfriended two people on Facebook, not because of their outrageous political views, but because they died in 2017. I fear that this may constitute a new annual tradition for me.

Smokey suggested that, instead of Thelma and Louise (or Red Team and Blue Team), we could have named them Huey and Bobby, in honor of Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, founders of the Black Panthers.

    I used to have a whole pile of those novelty pens! They were a favorite souvenir from travel — both mine, and other people who brought back gifts.

    Cuddle Cakes is an awesome kitteh name. 🙂

    I LOVED those pens when I was a kid! I used to buy them as souvenirs whenever we traveled. (Nostalgia overload. . . )

    Cuddlecakes for the win. My favorite line for chairing a meeting is “would anyone like to make a motion to…” people want to help move things along but they don’t always realize they are the ones who need to do it.
