I’ll be honest, all the pictures of brooms I’ve seen standing on their own online lately was freaking me out. Some of the people claimed their brooms would stand for hours without falling. Some people claimed the recent solar storm affected the earth’s gravitational pull, others claimed it planetary
alignment and one said it was a sign that the world would be ending soon. Last night I tried this but my broom wouldn’t stand. I felt somewhat relieved, as if
my house was safe from all this craziness. This morning on the front page of the newspaper I read an article that basically stated it’s just a balancing act.
That makes me feel better in a way but worse in a way too. What the hell’s wrong with me that I can’t balance a broom like everyone else?
My husband informed me yesterday that he will be taking a course to learn how to ride a motorcycle and if he passes the course he will be issued a license. I am not for this at all. If you give a mouse a cookie he will want some milk. If you give a man a motorcycle license he will want a motorcycle. He works for J&P Cycles, one of the leading motorcycle part distributers in the world so it is strange that he doesn’t have a motorcycle. But I have good reason to be against this, my husband is not coordinated and gets hurt easily. Let me give you an example:
One day he was in the shower and I was sitting cross-legged on the sink applying make-up. We had one of those hand-held, removable shower heads and he was pretending to be Pee Wee Herman. He wrapped the cord of the shower head around his neck and stuck his head out of the shower curtain; he was pretending he was being attacked by a snake. He slipped and fell, taking down the shower curtain and rod and pulling the shower head out of the wall. On the way down he landed on the water spout and took that out too, with his back. Amid the debris, he was laying in the blood filled tub. I was laughing so hard I had a difficult time rescuing him.
And then there was another time when I had to rescue him from the shower. We have heat lamps above our current shower. He saw a spider and tried to splash water on it. When the water hit the heat lamps they shattered, spraying shards of glass all over his body. (And I mean ALL over his body!)
He has really long legs too and once tripped a horse while he was riding it. Of course it landed on him when it fell. And I could go on and on with similar stories. So now do you agree that he shouldn’t have a motorcycle? I thought so. He’s a grown man so I can’t tell him what to do but my gut feeling is that he should pass on this venture.
Have a good day passengers and don’t forget to set your clocks ahead tonight!
