When the Packer game was over yesterday, my phone rang but I didn’t want to answer it. My husband picked it up and handed it to me; he said it was my Dad. My Dad was the very last person I wanted to talk to at that moment. You see, my Dad is a big Bears fan and an even bigger Packer hater. What do you say when your team gets smeared all over the field? I’ve been pretty cocky about my Packers and will continue to be a Packer fan but this game was hard to swallow.
In addition to completely deflating my ego, my Dad
left me with one interesting prediction, “You’ll have to watch the news in the morning, I bet there will be a lot of accidents in Green Bay tonight. It’s supposed to get cold and all of the tears from all of the Packer fans will fill up the streets and it will get icy.” Thanks Dad!
Bald G.I. Joe
I called this one a few days ago. There is now a new Facebook movement to get Hasbro to make bald GI Joe doll’s. So far they have over 4,000 likes. And guess what? They want Hasbro to donate a portion of the proceeds to one of three different non-profit originations that supports different childhood diseases. So now Hasbro is in the same boat as Mattel. (Shaking my head)
One supporter happily wrote that Hasbro is coming out with two bald GI Joes, but they are being designed after famous actors that will appear in
movies this year. Another supporter wrote: “This is awesome! I think it is great that this G.I. Joe has NO HAIR. The bald Barbie is a Barbie with EYEBROWS
and EYELASHES. Children with alopecia and cancer have neither eyebrows, nor eyelashes.”
So here we go…..Mattel and Hasbro will never be able to please everybody. Again, I am not against bald dolls, I just feel it’s unfair of these people to target companies like Mattel and Hasbro. These supporters could raise millions for cancer research if they would think outside the box and make and distribute their own dolls.
Yesterday I nodded off in my recliner while I was working on my new book. When I woke up I was surprised to see that I had written twenty-seven
pages……with nothing but the letter “d.” If I could only train my brain to write actual sentences when I’m sleeping, then I might be on to something!
British Phrase of the Day - How's your Father?
Our British friend’s say some nasty words like we do, but I’ve recently learned that some are very shy and sensitive when it comes to saying the word “sex.” Instead they will say, “How’s your Father?” You might also get a nudge or a wink after it is said. A conversation might go something like this: So, you are home from the honeymoon, did you have a spot of the old, how’s your Father? Or hey sweet thing, would you fancy a bit of how’s your Father? I suppose you could reply with, “I did have a spot of how’s your father, and Bob’s your uncle!”
Have an exceptional day passengers!
