Scope it, as in Horoscope: Simply put, some people just must be ignored for your health.
Bonehead Tip of the Day: Oh, I get it. If you look frazzled and in a hurry, it’s OK to park illegally in that yellow-striped space in front of the store. By all means, go, your Kingship. At the Halloween party go ahead and suggest Charades or Pictionary.
Trivia: There was a time in this country when the public was asked to pick a form of energy they wanted. “We” picked oil while other viable options were out there. This view was held in the 1890s. In 1901, oil was primarily used to light lamps. Nice diet, huh? Oil? No, the next item. After president William McKinley was shot, his diet consisted of whiskey, water and raw eggs. Wait just a minute. He got shot and went out for whiskey and water? Oh, no, this was his diet during the recovery period. I say recovery period because he died shortly after eating solid food. Was at the dentist and this came out (yes out; now rinse). William Morton, a dentist, coined the word “anesthesia” in 1846 because he liked using 25 cent words when a nickel word would do. A dentist also gave us Welch’s grape juice. Dr. Welch did that so the clergy wouldn’t have to drink wine. Didn’t really catch on so he used another marketing campaign.
The List: Oxymoron.
1. Good Grief – I know, some grief may be good. However, “It’s A Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” is on ABC tonight.
2. Successful failure – My life. Ouch!
3. Exact estimate – At least I did not hear “guestimate.”
4. Early detection – Seriously. I have no symptoms but I’m going to run up a $45,321 bill anyway.
Closer: Nice thing about the wind. It cleared off my balcony and took away all those political signs.
