Today, I had to make a pit stop after work at the Central Station. So, I put some money on my bus card and ambled over to the Hema.

I guess that I was rather cranky : on sale were *Vegetable Chips ! *and I was thinking, what is a potato , a stinkin’ animal ? Some exotic rodent, perhaps?

So I go to the register and behind me is a Franciscan Monk.

How do I – trained to observe- know that this was a Franciscan monk, you might ask ?

Because he was in full monk regalia, buying pre-paid whatever it is called for his telephone.

I find these moments so very very charming, in that * you are not in Kansas any longer* way.

Overheard

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jun-27-2018

The setting : the sun has just risen ( read : 5.30-ish am). Mummy Dearest is sound asleepĀ  ( hallelujah !) in her little Mary Poppins bed, a black tank top wrapped around her eyes. You see, she has left that big butt sunshade up so that the houseplants get a good dose of sunlight before Casa Mummy Dearest moves into the dark side of the day.

Teenage – or perhaps prepubescent – Magpie is standing on the edge of Mummy Dearest’s open bedroom window ( at least, Mummy Dearest is convinced of this- hidden under her black tank top, it is hard for her to REALLY know):

Hey ! You there ! What’s for breakfast ? I’m hungry. Seen Mom or Dad ?

( Mummy Dearest is thinking : I once worried about your nest being blown out of the trees….)

Barbie

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jun-2-2018

My new telephone already has a name. Unlike poor, wee Dumb Phone, my new phone is named * Barbie*.

For- when I stood in that telephone store downstairs from that apartment that I lived in for 5 years and gazed about at all of the doo-dads and accoutrements that I could purchase for Barbie- as I payed for Barbie( what was Blanche Dubois’ classic line again ?) I was simply overwhelmed with that sortof itchy feeling of greed that used to hit me when I received a new Barbie Doll.

Barbie really should have other earrings than these-oh-so-common pearl studs.

And look at that outfit ! Beats that home made sh*t hands down.

I did not buy one doo-dad or accoutrement for Barbie. Barbie is very, very lucky indeed that I bought her a sim card with Dumb Phone’s number on it.

Barbie and I are off to a good start.

Garbage

Posted by Mummy Dearest on May-31-2018

I promised myself that I would dump my garbage today. While I have very little *green garbage*, there is some and with this heat *What is that stench ?* comes to mind.

Just very, ,very faintly.

The garbage containers are the ground level of my building. This is not a long haul at all.

And despite the fact that there are neighbors sitting outĀ  on the communal balcony of my level, I threw caution and proprieties to the wind : I was NOT going to put on a hooter holder to take my garbage out.

And the entire time that I was doing so, a childhood ditty was running through my mind. It was used as a nasty song about big ears, but I- obviously- felt that it was very appropriate *mood* music :

Do your **** hang low, do they waggle to and fro, can you tie them in a knot, can you tie them in a bow ? Can you roll them up together like a continental soldier- do your ****….. hang….low ?
